The market took quite a dip today - hopefully transitory - but there is some good news today:  Canada will be opening its border to FULLY VACCINATED Americans on August 9th of this year.  (I knew I did something right.)

Sadly I think we need more of a market correction right now. Still think it is too high with everything going on right now……

You would be sadly correct. I think of you and your son every day and send good vibes to the great white north from Ohio...

 

Still shocked at what happened.

It's actually in Kansas, but aI always liked these as a kid...

I, too, liked these very much, but only with the formal opera window and more upright coupe roof line.  I will never tire of these:

Jokes about the South and Appalachia are usually good.  I wonder if they find them funny.  In "My Cousin Vinny," not so much ...

I always drool when I see photos like this.  I feel fortunate to have visited Banff National Park in the province of Alberta.  Breathtaking scenery.

On 6-29-2015 my wife and I were at this same spot in the Banf National Park. Lovely, but was not like this photoshopped picture.

We started with Breakfast in Banf and then drove up to Jasper and back to our time share in Fairmount Hotsprings.

We also hiked Lake Louise

WOW, This is freaky close for the person following the jeep GC that got struck. Hope everyone was OK inside.

Then found this on The Drive of a lighting strike on a Ford Pickup and how it melted the interior. WOW

@balthazar should really enjoy this and the fact that it is now on the National Register as a historical place and has a dedicated museum now and money to maintain this living advertisement.

8,000 trees were used by Studebaker to make an advertisement to people who fly into the airport.

80 years later, it is still advertising the now dead company.

Studebaker Still Advertises Its Defunct Company with 8,000-Tree Monument (thedrive.com)

Lovely Car

I would say today, it needs a bit of pruning.

To quote the story: Fans of the brand are keeping the Studebaker name alive. In 2004, the monument was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and after an ice storm damaged several trees that year, a grant was awarded for its long-term management and preservation. In 2005, the Studebaker National Museum opened its doors (don't miss its Concours d'Elegance each July). And in 2015, new saplings were planted in the monument after dead and diseased trees were removed.

Man the more I spend time on this web site, the more this will make a hit in luxury SUV sales in the US and I honestly do not see it taking them from GM or Ford.

Will have to say interesting that like Lincoln, they are offering 4 select color combo's with multiple interior color combo options. The Red Velvet sadly only gets black interior where the Black, Silver and White exterior color options get all 3 interior color options.

This truly plays in the luxury segment.
