Good afternoon, my name is Debbie and I'm from Baltimore, MD. I had the pleasure of meeting '1lilind' today at the McDonald's in Hampden as he was checking out my Solstice he told me about this site so here I am!  I have a 2008 Solstice manual drive with turbo, and I love it! :)

Debbie,

First off, I am so sorry that you had to meet Bobby.  He is one of our "loose cannon" members.  Hopefully he had his drooling under control when you met him.  :)  :drool:

Really though, welcome to the forum.  You will find more info here than you ever imagined.  Ask some questions and feel free to chime in on anything you find interesting.

Gentleman Jack

Hey everybody, this is a welcome thread.  We are supposed to stay on topic and be friendly and cordial here.


Debbie,
Please accept our invitation to the Mid Maryland Kappa Mod Meet #8.  Please see these following threads for more information:

http://www.kappaperformance.com/forum/index.php/topic,5130.0.html

http://www.kappaperformance.com/forum/index.php/topic,6444.0.html

http://www.kappaperformance.com/forum/index.php/topic,6432.0.html

Have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine or beer or something ready when you start to read through these threads.  They are very informative, but a bit long.  Good first weeks reading though.

Welcome to the best place on earth for your roadster.

Gentleman "ironic" Jack

Critter, oh my goodness... how can that be?  It was an honest to goodness welcome fit for a queen and she just drops her socks and leaves us in the breech!!!  That ain't even friendly and not a way to treat good folks.  I went back and checked to see if maybe one of us may have offended her but no, didn't find even one offensive remark which really surprised me cause we do have some characters on this forum that don't back down from anything.

But to not respond to such a fine welcome is indeed not ladylike...
