  1. Well.......... it’s finally here. UNFORTUNATELY, it’s far too nice for a bumpkin like me, so I politely refused it. No; I guess I’ll take it. Going back tomm with a fat check and a brand new pen.

  3. 0-60 is well under 6 seconds for both Camry and Accord Sport. This is on par with much more expensive BMW 330i. Both Accord Sport (which I think is better than Camry TRD personally) and Camry probably can give the BMW run for its money in handling as well. So if you want a sporty sedan that will be reliable and at least somewhat fun, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the two. Lexus ES though, I am not sure is worth it.

  4. I am happy to say that I've had both injections. As soon as it was announced that it would open up, I jumped on 2 retail pharmacy websites and, lo and behold, found an appointment just 2 days away at a location about 1:15 from me. I was ecstatic. I was given Pfizer. Surprisingly, those same retail pharmacies around me were giving Moderna, but this store was giving Pfizer. I was happy about getting Pfizer. Some friends have had some transient side effects from the Moderna. From what I've heard, Pfizer is the one mostly dispensed at hospitals while Moderna is more likely to be d

  5. @A Horse With No Name Totally agree, brothers in awe of Asian woman. We got married on a tight budget but a few years later took my wife to get her the glamor portrait she deserved in her wedding dress. My wife Sun Felt!

  8. For the Money, I would own a Chevy Trail Boss full size pickup. This is entirely HOT. GM got both the Silverado and GMC really right. I know David doesn't like them, but I would buy one in a New York minute.

  9. GM built many of these types of sedans in the past, FWD midsize sedans tarted up to be "sporty"...various Pontiacs, Buicks, etc. These are the same formula, 2021 editions.

  11. The latest wrangler, the 2018 up adresses a lot of issues with earlier Wranglers. I find myself hiking more than wanting to go four wheeling. And I think the new Bronco, when it finally goes into full production in August, will kick the Wranglers ass in so many ways. Again, I am convinced Bronco will be much better. They had to heavily discount Gladiators to get rid of a bunch of them. Wranglers were moving, Gladiators were not. Wranglers are stupid hot around Columbus and elsewhere. On a recent trip to North Carolina it seemed like every other vehicle was aW

  16. You can't call yourself "science guy" and then say no point of going to space. Science has always been about discovery of unknown and pushing the boundaries of known. If people wouldn't be willing to expand and learn and discover, we still would live in the original caves we came from and hunt with spears. There are so many innovations that came out from trying to push the boundaries, exploring. Exploring space gave a huge amount of things we use daily now. Take as an example that small helicopter flight that this whole discussion started. Flying on Mars is an equivalent of flying on Ea

  17. Changed back to the all seasons a couple weeks ago. Out about 4,000 miles on last year. Just about at 15,000 on the odo. Despite the strong 2.0, I think it would have been nice to have a v6 option in this car. still agree with one of my own earlier comments. This car on a larger chassis would really more fully realize the concept. Still, enjoying the ride. Another young German car fan gave me the cool car chat when I was getting the tires changed over. ‘Cool wagon, I love those!’

  18. Yard projects: • One shouldn't be trying to transport -say- 4x4-8' timbers in a 4-ft long bed. • If you're getting bagged mulch, it's no problem to stack that in the back of a SUV with a piece of tarp or a blanket down. • Buying 6-8' trees is certainly uncommon, but either : grab a rental truck for $20, call a friend or see if you can lean it out the hatch window. • A boxed lawn mower or snow thrower will fit in just about any SUV. Not seeing much else in the 'yard department' that a 4-ft bed pickup can handle and a SUV can't. Large appliances (fridge, water heater) can be laid dow

  19. What I was really going to say: I LIKE this new New York license plate ... simpler, picks up Western New York out to the eastern tip of Long Island (Montauk Point light), and the Adirondacks in between. But the lighthouse at the right does look a little cheesy. Some people in various states get knotted up when they are proposing a new license plate and they focus on one natural or urban feature and ignore the rest of the state. But, man, the old orange and black New York license plate on a black limousine or gangstah car with tinted windows really fit the bill.

  20. Yeah, it is getting bad out there. Since I am furloughed from my main job (not looking good there, been in interviews the lat few weeks) I am working at my 2nd job-which happens to be in retail. I’ve nearly been attacked twice in the last few weeks for trying to help co workers with customers- anti maskers-or simply jerks (or political). I understand that people are unhappy with much going on in the world- but it shouldn’t make people full of anger and hate. I still treat everyone with respect and love- there is already too much crazy in the world to add to it.....

  22. Restaurant chains...just suck no matter how you slice your thought process. ESPECIALLY the ones that "specialize" in "fine" dining or "authentic" ethnic food. No need to dine in 5 star, Cordon Bleu level chef restaurants. The 'good 'ole mom and pop restaurant will do. I know, I know....those dont exist anymore. *SIGH* Montreal had a ton of those. Italian and Greek owned mom and pop restaurants from the '50s all the way to the '80s was a REAL treat. REAL Authentic Greek or Italian dishes made LITERALLY like "momma used to make". Diners, fast food joints, quick

  23. The price jump to get something actually sporty that seats four comfortably, is insane. They're a more dynamic driving experience while still being able to have your four doors. there really isn't much that competes with the TRD Camry right now, Accord "Sport"? What else would one buy if they wanted a slightly sporty four door sedan that's less than 35k?

  24. It's certainly possible to have a relatively sporty sedan vs. other trims, given decent suspension/tires and power-upgrades, in any time period. Buyers like them or OEMs wouldn't keep offering them. Not to defend toyoter here but, 300 hp in 3600 lbs is not bad. And GM has built some very good ones in the past.

  33. Exactly! I keep seeing the Zephyr all over my Facebook feed and people going gaga over it.... I'm here like "It's just a refreshed Fusion/MKZ". And really, the only difference in the profile is that instead of flipping the end of the top of the trunk up, they flicked it down so it's "like an A7"... but that's where the similarity to the Audi ends.

  35. mid-'80s : I can remember one of these in my favorite junkyard haunt, esp that peaked center section of the decklid. It was a '67 Fury 4-dr, very dark blue, and someone had painted (very well) 'BUILT TO' and 'BOOGIE' in the large flats to either side of that peaked center. It was at the end of one of the 2 rows the arrows point to, nose facing 'south'. Now ask me what I had for dinner last night.

  36. Wife & I got our first Moderna shot today. Rode an hour 1-way to get it. My one son who works in a NY hospital got both his shots maybe 2 months ago. Other son doesn't have an app't yet, his GF got the J&J shot Monday.

  37. Only have ridden it 3 times so far because of the weather here, but I'm getting more comfortable with it. The clutch is heavy, I'm going to need to do hand exercises or just ride it a heck of a lot more to work up the muscles in my left hand. I brought it to work this morning so I can drop it off for state inspection. Thinking back, this is the biggest bike I think I've ridden, maybe not the heaviest, but certainly the largest engine and most powerful. It's a lot of bike and I'm still getting used to it. One of the nicest things that makes me glad I bought it is that once I'm rolli

  38. True. But we (our modern society) seem to WANT to be seduced by these wolves in sheep's clothing. Our morals and scruples seem to have been loosened over the years. And when we do that, we beget more and more wolves in sheep's clothing until the wolves our brazen enough to not even disguise themselves as sheep. Look at the last President... Money...the root of all evil.

  40. 1) My take on how I roll with salespeople (and how I think others should roll): If the item or service can wait, and you push me, I won't be buying from you. If you do not push me, but seek to inform me, I will be buying from you. * * as for the $ 1,400 stimulus payment, I went out and bought a 3 over 3 (cushions, that is) sleeper sofa to put in the room where the desktop computer / printer are. (I'm also giving a token amount to humanitarian causes ... i.e. disaster relief.) The salesman was polite, patient, and mild mannered, so I filed his business card away that he gave me when

  41. Exactly. Everyone likes what they like. For example, I personally like cars from 50s even though they are way before my time, just like their swoopy aerodynamic (or what they thought aerodynamic at that time) shape. It just balthasar and David making comments about how badly designed old Ferraris or Lamborghinis are while adoring some over chromed bricks seems a bit funny to me. But as they say, whatever floats your boat.

  44. Sure, nothing special. I am not a Lamborghini fan but at Car and Driver Lightning lap Urus ran 2.55.8. Just for comparison Cadillac CTS-V did in 2:56.8, Camaro SS 1LE did the lap at 2:54.8, C7 Corvette Stingray did it in 2:53.8. It is much faster than Q8
