  2. Remembering all those lost 19 years ago today, including the innocent civilians and the heroic first responders in NYC, the Pentagon and the PA field. I remember I was getting ready for the day in a Sacramento hotel room while in the middle of moving to Dallas, TX. Called the family and started my way back home. The scene of the twin towers on the News that morning was so unreal and chilling at the same time. God Bless the United States of America!!!

  5. The XTS looked like shyte as a limo. The XT5 even worse. Please, do NOT ever post the XT5 as a limo EVER again! The CT6 is passable. There is something amiss with the front end. I think, as far as car based Caddy limos go, these last two might very well be the last of the awesome lookin' Cadillac limos. Then comes the Escalade. I wont post pics of past Escalade limos, but this render of a possible next gen Escalade Limo promises to be EPIC and continue the lineage of awesome Caddy limos.

  8. Yes, sir I sure did plan that! Wow, quite the story and a very moving one at that brother. It really was a horrible day for the country and those of us who love this country. I hear you, I was sad then angry as well.

  9. And in New York too! Did you plan that? My dad always watched CNN so when the 1st plane hit and the newsfeed went to NYC and the news was focused on the "accident", he saw the action unfold from the get go. He woke me up immediately to tell me about it. 15 minutes later we were both discussing this as if it was a terror attack. The perception at CNN before the 2nd plane was confusement and bedazzlement. Shortly there-after the 2nd plane hit... It took me 24 hours to sink in but I tell you...that following day, I was in tears all day. Took me about a week to get back to n

  10. @ccap41 According Rivian, Jan 2021 is when existing pre-order customers will get access to customize their R1T for building and delivery. 60 to 90 days after that, the sales will open up to everyone who is not a pre-order customer. Mitsubishi built millions of auto's on that assembly line. Rivian has stated that they will start off slow to insure quality over quantity and speed things up as they get everyone trained.

  11. Makes sense with the Livery Leader XTS production ending. Aftermarket builders will probably make versions of the CT5 as well. CT6 Super Stretch is a gorgeous limo with the gull-wing middle doors. Just...WOW.

  12. I haven't forgotten when the Seattle area hit 114 F one summer. I was not living there when it happened. But that statistic, being at the 47th parallel, is something that I still remember. When it comes to AZ, the auditorium at ASU has that Jetsons look. Theme building at LAX, too. When I was a kid, we'd go up on that observation platform and watch 747s take off and land.

  13. Is it weird that I might print out the Corvette or Silverado...? It looks kindof fun and they look pretty cool. Yeah, that's not all that bad.. Come to the Midwest in July or most Augusts(this year was the mildest I can remember) when it's upper 90's with 75% humidity. You sweat just looking outside.

  14. I actually lived in Brooklyn at the time. Was out of town due to work that day and couldn't come back because all the bridges and tunnels were closed. Driving over Verrazano Bridge next day and seeing smoldering remains of the twins is something I will never forget.

  15. I was pretty young, but remember parts of the Mt. St. Helen's eruption. Grew up about 75 mi. (as the crow flies) from it. Pictures my Mother took of it in the distance were ominous for sure. Those Wildfires are getting a bit problematic up that way. There was one that started near the Columbia Gorge when I was home last month, light smoke and haze made it to the Willamette Valley where I was. Nor. Cal has red skies during the day it's so bad there.

  17. Which "famous" family lived in this apartment or condo tower? Three guesses and the first two don't count. Amazing how much the look of this type of building was replicated in warmer places (CA, NV, AZ, and FL) during the '60s and early '70s. This family was therefore a trendsetter, too.

  18. It hasn't been bad here in NE Ohio this summer...the humidity hasn't been bad at all, and have had only a handful of days over 90....being close to Lake Erie helps for me, breezier and lower humidity than further inland in Ohio. Looking forward to the rest of September and October..

  22. I shouldn't say 'only'; circa 800 is a fat number. I have a Buick 455 dyno run bookmarked, that car made 830 HP THIRTEEN years ago. 10.1 sec car. I bolt parts on my 455 and and its 600HP out of the box. My brother's Pontiac makes 1170 HP out of I think 539 CI (8.8L).

  23. It's a mix of AC and DC motors in BEV's, Tesla and GM use both, sometimes at the same time. 3-Phase AC Induction traction motors are lighter, but more expensive (due to the large copper windings) and are better for high performance cars because they operate more smoothly than the brushless DC Permanent Magnet motors, but AC-I are generally less efficient than DC-PM. The GM EV-1 had 3-Phase AC Induction motors and the Chevy Volt had 3-P AC-I motors as well, but the Chevy Bolt uses a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) that's similar to a brushless DC Permanent Magnet motor.

  25. The whole Eastern Seaboard and Midwest are pretty bad in the Summer for sure. Been to Annapolis, MD in August it was horrible, probably 80% hum. and people were still out jogging around. They must have been training for a marathon getting lungs in shape with thick air or they were just nuts haha.
