New member from the Netherlands.

After buying our 67 sport sedan and looking for advice I found these forums and signed up.

I have owned 3 classic mustangs over the years (68/69 and 73) and now have switched to a Chevrolet.
Hope to stay and learn something about classic impala's.

Welcome to the Team Dennis!

Looks as dry their as it does in New Orleans for the same reason; high dykes and good pumps. Do you live in the majority area that is above sea level or down by the coast? As far as that goes what do you use for beaches?

Reason I ask I live about sixty miles inland from three of the worlds "best" beaches rated by some outfit that never picks the same beach twice. But I figure in a few years to a decade or so I will soon have beach front property as Florida is just one big sand bar with our highest "Mountain" in this state being on the Alabama state line at a few hundred feet above sea level.

For reasons I have yet to understand having lived here nearly sixty years people like to go to the beach and get a sun burn (and later skin cancer) from lying on sand. I own five acres of sand. I never feel like walking out side and lying in my skivvies in the sun.

Great looking car by the way!

Big Dave,

I live about 40 miles from the beach which is in my opinion best for walking my dogs and not sunbathing, I'm more into working with my hands than laying in the sun.
The area of the Netherlands that is below sea-level is roughly a third of the country and so my house is 15 to 20 feet below it and has been like that for hundreds of years so not much to worry about.

The beach on the coast is a proper sand beach with natural dunes acting as the barrier, dikes are only used on places where there were none or were lakes/sea was pumped dry to create land.
