    From time to time, I have enjoyed talking cars... usually during those
    times of my life where I had an older one I needed help with. :) Those
    times could be coming again here soon!

    Hi Ron!

    Any car guys out there?

    Sure thing!
    Vintage Explorer driver in Berlin here, taking good care of this rare (well, at
    least here) specimen.

    Nice! Denver, CO here. I'm a huge car guy myself, but it being winter, the classic car has to stay indoors. :( I'm looking forward to it being summer again.

    What year is your explorer?

    I can say I LOVE them! :) My father was a car/gearhead when I was growing up. Unfortunately, he never really showed me much, which I regreat to this day. I've learned from reading and watching my friends fix and mod cars over the years. One thing on my bucket list!

    Oh, which is your vintage car?

    What year is your explorer?

    That's a 1997 4.0 SOHC EU export model in red.
    The EU models are all 4.0, AT, electronic 4x4, with the Eddie Bauer fender extensions, half ride control (on the rear axle, to serve as an automatic headlamp beam height adjustment), half air conditioning (only front, because rear air conditioning would have been too unusual for Yurop), Bosch immobilizer
    and alarm, and changed lights and belt buckles without belt alarm, compass, power seats/windows, and in my case, the "Highclass" trim which includes leather seats and a glass sunroof.
    And, I have an LPG conversion, so I can drive propane/butane gas which costs roughly as much as gasoline in the US, so 2.5 times cheaper than gasoline here.


    Cheers! Merry Christmas! :-)
