Greyhound5. Hello, I'll keep the intro short though as many of you will know I tend to ramble.
I've been invited here by a friend that I think many of us share a mutual admiration for from THE OTHER FORUM. The user name change isn't so much a ruse, though from the sound of it it might not be a bad idea I just got tired of using a handle that I chose at the drop of a hat rather than one that reflects something about me.
So yes I rescue retired racing Greyhounds (only one at a time now) I also have a large Mini longhair Dachshund that was my mother's until she passed a couple of years ago. Other interests include analog stereo from the 60's to 80's. I never got out of vinyl so there was no revival for me. I am stepping back into open reel tape after having gotten swept up in the digital age starting back in the mid 80's for all practical purposes. I have added a TEAC and an AKAI both full auto reverse 10.5 inch decks to my system to fill that part of my quest.
I live in the US and have had to work everyday for my money so mostly I've driven Fords with the occasional Buick thrown in, a few Volkswagens and a couple of MGs because that's what you do when you have to buy car parts quickly and inexpensively, you drive whats common.
I've always been in love with many of the old British badges. Not so much now that they have either disappeared or been sold off. I worked for British Leyland as a light mechanic back in 78-79 and got to drive many great cars. But Land Rover was one that has always been a favorite of mine.
I own three Rovers now (time for the giveaway) a 99my Range Rover S in Rioja Red. This ones been sitting in the garage for 8 years now with a destroyed motor caused by a slipped liner. A 2003 Discovery HSE7 (which I won't be mentioning in my posts) runs great unfortunately I broke a rather important piece of plastic that holds the center dash in place and haven't worked out how to fix it yet and a 99my Range Rover Callaway #123 in Niagara Grey.
Well I'll stop there. I did say I wouldn't ramble didn't I?
