Default Re: Visiting the USA

I agree with Fetch - a fellow GMC truck owner wants to cross the big pond to come to America and take in the sights and sounds of our Great Country we should encourage it anyway we can. He stated he would like to visit one or more of the forum members to get a first hand experience on what American is about. The good and the bad. To state that asking for offers of guidance is not what this forum is about is just what it's not. The forum is about people helping people even if it's not in the cut and dried realm of someone's idea of what it should be. At least he's not an illegal alien crossing the border and being welcomed with open arms. He's asking for a little guidance when he's here - lets show it to him.

I think whichever region of the states you choose, try to find ahead of time, the largest, biggest car show/swap meet you can find.

I recall the first time I went to the Pomona Fairgrounds, located in southern California, I got to see all the Muscle cars I'd only heard or read about along with street rods, original vintage classics, Low Riders, corvettes, VW's Porsches and all other kind of Oddities and Trucks.
That and along with aisle after aisle of swap meet vendors and rare parts, it made for a fun day.
