I've gotten some helpful responses.  There seems to be a core group here that jump in on nearly everything and a whole lot of lurkers that are rather reserved about what and/or who they reply to tho.  I'm sure it will take a while to warm up to me.  I've been involved in another car discussion group since usenet days in the early 90s, now a forum - celicasupra.com  The old guard there is a bit testy.  I'm guilty of it myself at times.  Seems every possible question has been asked and answered ad-infinitum and so newbies who don't realize they've asked a repeat question for the umpteenth time get hammered.  I haven't seen that kind of attitude here.  Based on past experience, I was afraid it was going to be tough to be a newbie again, but so far I feel welcome.

Adam,
 
I feel accepted by the members here. Many take the time to explain their answers in full so a newcomer like me can understand.
 
There definitely is a "core group" here, but they do not seem at all like thay feel "above" a new guy like me. Their answers are real helpful!
And, heck, I just get a kick out of the jibberjabber that goes back and forth. Sometimes I just read the threads and get a chuckle out of what's being said. Even when I have nothing to add.
 
C3VR seems to have a real welcoming, down to earth mentality going on here.
 
I look forward to the spring time when we'll all have our Vettes back out of the garage and meeting a few more members at gatherings.
 
Good Stuff !!!

While I'm just "getting in to" using this board more often now that I'm a Gold Member, I have no doubt whatsoever that I'll be accepted by my fellow C3 breatheren, and that I'll always get the answers or opinions I'm looking for.

Hi Adam:
 
I feel quite at home here and have had numerous questions answered and have even been congratulared on finding my build sheet by 3-4 people.  I really feel like this is a great place to share and learn.  I am new to Corvettes  (not new to collector cars) but try to find a forum on a 1963 Pontiac Parisienne; it doesn't exist.
 
About the only thing I have not figured out is how to post a picture at the end of my signature!
 
Martin

Martin,

I have always looked into other forums, CF, CAC, etc, but I feel the most welcomed and akin to the C3VR. I just hope I will be able to meet most of you in the future. I kind of found C3VR by accident, but I am glad I did!

I have to say I feel very welcome. I've had my questions answered here. I'm a little reserved on answering questions because I'm new to the corvette but not to cars. I do all my own work so as I work on my corvette I will feel a little more at ease to answer questions.

I was glad to see Adams e-mail of the Forum Update because I intended to respond with a post a few weeks ago, however, I got busy with other things, didnt turn the computer on for a week and.........well you know how it goes.
 
I feel very welcome  on this site for the short time I have been a member.  I have only asked a couple of questions, and have been very impressed with both the number and quality of responses.  I have also been impressed with the amount of knowledge and expertise of some of the members.  They helped me with my problem (Tach Drive) in a very easy to understand way.  I now realize that this problem has been addresed at least a dozen times before, but they were very patient with me.  Thank you to all.
 
Although I am new to this Forum ( A year ago I didn't know these types of forums existed) I have owned Corvettes for many many years and thought I knew alot about them.
 
I bought my first Vette in 1970.  A '69 427, 390 hp Riverside Gold Coupe. 
(By the way I really like Miki's pictures.  Looks very familar.)  In 1973, I bought the Corvette that I still own today.  A '72 350, 200 hp auto Targa Blue Coupe.  In those days, we didn't even call em C3's.  Can you believe it??  You can say the Corvette has been a very important part of my life.  I feel very fortunate to have been able to hang on to it through school, family, wife, kids, jobs, moving, etc. etc. etc.  And yes, I still have the same wife that I had in 1972.  One more thing, in 1974 the blue coupe was the only car we owned when our daughter was born.  Can you imagine bringing a baby home from the hospital in a Corvette today?  I guess life was just simpler.
 
Back to the Forum......... I really enjoy getting to know the guys and gals that post often.  (I really do feel that I know them.)  I also appreciate the good natured banter back and forth between them.  Very entertaining!  Lastly, I feel that I have learned a great deal about the sports car that I have owned for many years, and look forward to the sharing of information in the future.
 
Sorry if this has gotten a little long.
Thanks for the opportunity.
Dean
