Hello my friend, It was just brought to my attn. that I may owe you a "thanks" for the signature picture of Steve McQween that I am currenly using. I cannot honestly remember where I got it, but It probably came from you. Great quality photo. Thank you. By the way I spent a year in Stuttgart Germany. Loved it. Sure miss those scnitzel dinners and warm Pills beers, and the friendly guest houses.

I did 18 months in Schweinfurt in the 80's. Yes, Germany is a nice place. BullittBro; everyone did a tour in Germany before the wall came down. I hear it is tough to get stationed there now. Funny how things change.

My brother was an Officer in the Navy, Civil Engineer, for 6 years. Never had ANY ship duty. I tried to convince him to stay in because he could have retired at 39. He did not like his job. I said "if you don't like the job in the Navy, you'll like it less in the real world". He now wishes he'd stayed too. He had it real hard. 3 years in San Diego, 2 years in Greece and NO SHIP DUTY.

Not everyone who has lived in Europe is a military brat (excuse the phrase). I lived in The Netherlands just a 1 year ago... and I was not in uniform :wink: I miss Wageningen very much, great village, great pubs, and only a 45 min train ride to Amsterdam, Rotterdam or yes even to that other country.. Germany.

BTW greeting from S'pore the weather is perfect, a hell of a lot better than Bangkok and Finland! Talk about extremes try going from the artic circle to the equator in 20 hours! People were looking at my pretty funny in S'pore wearing a heavy sweater and carrying a heavy coat and scarf :wink:

Oh, yeah .. I think this must be the first true Asia post. Cool, now if I had just owned my Bullitt while I was in SA.

I also served in West Berlin, 86-88. I didn’t really like it there. Big hassle to get to West Germany, from Berlin, to ski and all.

Yeah BULLITTBRO1, if regulations are the same, E4 and above, second permanent party station, you can take your car.

llama_boy, Who was a military brat? Every post I read appeared to be people serving their country honorably in the armed services. What was your point in saying that? A military brat, as I know it, basically, is a dependent or a child of a service member who goes where ever their parents go, living on different military bases, as they are raised.

Poor choice of words on my part. I to was in the military, reserves but still military. I was a 54B in the USAR (NBC Spec). I intended no offense and that is why I wrote "no offense" after using the term... lighten up.

Hi guys, I am pretty stunned that you tough army guys liked your time in Germany, but I bet you missed Mustang drag racing. Where some of you in the Wild Ponies of Hanau club (mostly Us army guys)?
Gipsy Yarborough and her husband Don (president) is now back in the US as well, but they still keep in touch.
The Wild Ponies are having BBQs often and Mustang trips and some of them are serious drag racers.
BTW my 68 T-5 is an ex-army car and an ex-drag car with a modified 302. If sb. ever mets an army guy that once had a 68 302 Fastback, tell him to contact me. I am still looking for that first owner.
BTW Nr. 2 - Has anybody of you some background info on the licence plate decoding of 64-73. I've been informed that you could decipher the degree (general, seargent or such) from the letters. Is that true?

And to Pony XTC - no problem using pics of my site, if you give proper source info and a link. You may imagine the hard work that went into compiling all this stuff thanks to David Kunz, Anthony Bologna and BULLITT fans worldwide (thanks also to some of the authors of the original BULLITT articles for permission to use their stuff on my site).
