  1. Please go. No one is stopping you. There's daily nonstop service from PHL by their own Lufthansa and some American carriers as well. Since you are seeming slightly anti-American at this juncture, I recommend Lufthansa. And, since you've never shown much of a penchant for foreign languages on here over the years, you will have one hell of a time learning to communicate in German.

  2. I learned a long time ago to not read Facebook comments as they are generally from people who are unhinged and/or without a firm grasp on reality. A bunch of keyboard warriors who can barely make the payment on their '15 Malibu are not Cadillac's target market. If Cadillac makes a product with a powertrain equal or greater than Tesla and actually puts some style back in their vehicles (unlike the puke worthy stuff they have out now - excepting remaining CT6 and '21 Escalade) then I'll be back in the Cadillac camp.... but they've gotta make the vehicles look GREAT.

  5. To put the current electric vehicle market in the harsh light of reality... Tesla is pretty much unilaterally recognized as the #1 EV maker in the world. They are, in fact, WRT volume; Tesla sold a record 367,000 vehicles globally in 2019 (BYD was #2 at 225K units). Some gov't entities (and rabid EV fans) are hoping to see 100% EV products by 2030, or even 2025. Worldwide vehicle production in 2019 was... 65,500,000. That's sixty-five million units. Which means Tesla's global marketshare in 2019 is 0.0056%. 2019 U.S. BEV sales were 242,846. 2019 U.S. total vehicle sales were 16.

  6. Kind of funny, we have @David that thinks we all will be driving EVs in 5 years and @ocnblu that EVs are just a crackpot that never will catch on ... As always the truth is somewhere in between the extremes I suspect.

  7. You're both right and wrong. Its both extremes, ya clowns... 100%, all those people crying about leaving, stayed put. Nobody had the nuts to actually DO what they said they'd do.

  8. Sorry for my part there. Just couldn't resist myself after certain folks just softballed it in like that lol. Been keeping myself busy too since I moved last month. My workshop/office/pseudo man cave has been getting a lot of attention over the last few weeks. Have to get some more plywood to finish the front wall. A shame the cost of wood right now makes it damn near a commodity.

  12. What I really came onto the forum to say tonight ... About a year and a half ago, I bought a sofa and another upholstered piece for the living room. Given my control oriented nature, I ordered it. I hate that the trendy thing is to have pillows that have some wild pattern when the body color of a sofa or a chair is solid. So I ordered everything solid. This salesman, who was younger but NOT pushy, helped me with selecting the upholstery while I had the model/frame already selected. The fact that he didn't push me when I first went into the store to look around is what got him the sa

  13. I run steels on my Toronado because that's what it came with of course. There were optional alloy wheels available but they're made of unobtainium.. there is a rumor that the few that were sold were recalled by GM and destroyed due to wheel failures. If any actually still exist I would love to own a set just for the obscurity of them. I was actually looking at some retro steel wheels for my Avalanche to run snow tires with this morning after we were chatting about the Defender. These with some Blizzacks on 17s on my 'Lanche? Could be fun.

  17. Ford's F-150 has a HORRIBLE equipment 'linkage' system going on. Spec the 3.0L TD and try to pick certain wheels OR paint colors, and Ford kicks the diesel out & replaces it with a 5.0 V8. What the hell would the paint color have to do with the engine choice?? NICE XLT, Guard Green (you're welcome, 'blu!), 20" rims... NOPE, NO DIESEL FOR YOU!

  18. 'Benzinga' (whatever that is) is reporting the Rivian pricing this morning. Seems Rivian will initially offer a 'launch edition' of the 2 trucks, but unlike the full boat Hummer Edition One, it's not a max spec version. Equipped with a middling 300 mile range battery pack, the R1T pickup will start at a commanding $75,000, while the R1S will be $77,500. Re-using the old Ford moniker; the "Explorer" is stated to start at $67,500, whereas the swiped Dodge (nee DeSoto) moniker "Adventurer" will be $77,500. Apparently these are trim levels. Around January of 2022, 250 mile range and

Since you arent a stranger in giving them yourself every time your "safe space" differs from an opposing point of view.

  22. The past week here, weather wise, has been damn near perfect. Today, a high of 79 and a light autumn breeze knocking around those leaves a bit. Tomorrow, crap. I will take today please. Edit: For the record, nights have been pretty awesome as well.

  24. How about a partial arrangement? Like : most government vehicles (postal trucks, etc), all transit vehicles (taxis, buses, etc), all light cargo vehicles (vans) and half the passenger cars & light trucks go BEV, and the other half remain IC. That would be a HUGE move "forward" and reduce emissions GREATLY, yet still offer choice and allow the consumer to choose. Have a goal of the year 2050 to reach this breakout. That, at least, seems feasible. The '100% in 14 years'... isn't.

  26. Beautiful. I love the Hudson River Valley. And driving along I-87 between Montreal and NYC. I stopped in Plattsburgh, where SUNY is located just south of the Canadian border, and got a fantastic gyro meal. And, a long time ago, I met up with "razoredge" in Albany, his general area, and that was a hoot. If you ever fly into Newark or LaGuardia airports and you diagonally go over the Hudson River Valley, it's amazing that so much pristine, wooded land is that close to NYC. The same would apply to the eastern ~2/3 of Long Island. The middle of it is very rural once you go way east.

Hiding in the cave now since mother nature is being a little soggy today. Flash flood warning for the next five hours.

  36. Thanks guys, I had a really nice birthday. I got some cash from my family to put towards my motorcycle fund and I got a pasta extruder so I can now make macaroni and other extruded past shapes. I made 8 eggs of pasta for dinner last night and it turned out great. Saturday night I had a small group of friends over for pizza, drinks, and cake and my best friend left his dog with us for the night so I had him all Sunday as my shadow. It was nice and calm and I got a nice birthday present from the State of PA too. :-)

  38. I do think that society is tired of this pandemic, yet by letting our guard down now we are seeing the last few days with 100,000 infections happening daily and thousands of deaths. A very sad time with loosing so much life needlessly. https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/us-map We still need to stay vigilant till we can vaccinate the country. I find this story very weird to me as they call the 19840Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta, a Sports Car for Luxurious People. I remember this car and I never considered it Luxurious! 2.8L V6 with Automatic. https://www.thetruthaboutcar

  42. From the Alternative Vehicle Control Department : EDITORIAL :: Use to be; race cars were manufacturer-built and had proprietary powertrains. That was deemed "unfair" and the cars were all homogenized to the point that toyoter built a pushrod V8 just to be able to run. We were told 'it's really about the race drivers, anyway'. NOW... they're working on removing that aspect of the sport. I really don't get it. What are we (no me; I don't watch racing) supposed to root for, the GPS software? I don't think there's any more blantantly sad example of 'technology for tec
