Smile Greetings from rural Illinois

I am a new Kimber owner. While visiting my LGS, I noticed a Kimber Micro Bel Air model on display. I made the mistake of asking to see it. After handling it a while and discussing it's features, relative rarity, etc with the shop owner, I couldn't put it down. I am Chevy guy and the color combo screamed 1950s shoebox Chevys. I just had to own it. Talk about impluse purchases!

So I joined the forum to benefit from the collective knowledge about Kimbers and to enhance my ownership experience.

Welcome Donald from Southern California! Very Kool Kimber with a capitol K. There are a couple Belair owners besides yourself on this forum. Probably more than I am aware of. I do not own one but I do own three Kimbers all bought in the last six months. I have the Kimber affliction.
