    Hey guys! I am TheDutchTexan and reside in Plano, TX.

    I am a car enthusiast, but always had a great interest in the second world war, including the aircraft of that era. Recently I attended an airshow here in Dallas and captured some footage. I saw my first B29 and B17 in the flesh that day!

    Welcome to the forums...Texas certainly has it's share of warbirds, so in time, you'll get to see all sorts of WWII hardware :thumbleft:

    ......and that he's a car enthusiast, it means it can't be Ford or GM, nothing enthusiastic about those! :lol:

    Someone looked at my YouTube channel... Either that or it's a lucky jab which connected. First On Race Day! :twisted:

    Oh, I might prefer fords. But anything that is old and has a V8 is OK in my book. The only reason I am not in a classic is my destabilized bank account... Hahaha!

    Maar toch welkom hoor, altijd goed als er landgenoten bij komen. Zoveel Nederlanders zijn hier niet.

    As a good Dutchman, I expect you to love DAF and Speijker. And as an aircraft enthousiast, you bought our books about the Fokker G-1 of course. No P-51, you hear.... :lol: (well, at least I could try :) )
