  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. 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. 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.

  9. 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.

  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.

  26. 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.

  28. 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.

  30. RE the Ferrari vs. Corvette discussion, in plucking out 2 adjacent pics I can sum up what I see design-wise right here. Corvette is completely cohesive; it's lines and surface transitions have excellent 'follow thru' - where the rear quarter top line just has a beautiful, gently-varying radius thru the taillight, sharper thru the bumperette, yet still continues down to the bottom edge of the car. The lights are flush and fluid, the exhaust is both neatly concealed yet is located in the brightwork of the bumper port. It's 'hidden' until you spot it as an 'Easter egg'. The bumper, in wrappi

  31. 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

  32. 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.

  34. 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

  39. I took my dad with me when I was looking for my first car. He balked at the age there, too; it was a '62 Studebaker GT Hawk. That was circa '85. The next year I bought my '64 GP, tho I didn't tell him about it until 3 years later.

  40. An example would be the B hardtop rooflines vs C hardtop rooflines of a given year, like ‘61. The C has a more squared C-pillar and back window shape compared to B. Olds 88 vs 98 example... Likewise for '62-64....the C body has a more squared off roofline compared to the rounded B body roofline.

  41. Not into the Royals. However, you wake up and learn that Prince Philip has died. RIP. He and the queen seem like decent folks. So, he made it to 99. His 100th birthday would have been 2 months from now. I was hoping he'd make it to 100(+). For one, London, and England, would have probably partied in his honor. Parties can be good. Then, I always like to see centennial birthdays for people who have been going along at a steady pace well into their 90s.

  42. '70 Chevy '350' = 349.8 CI '70 Pontiac '350' = 354.7 CI '70 Olds 350 = 350.07 CI '70 Buick '350' = 349.3 CI 3 of them are right on the money, but Pontiac certainly could've billed theirs as a '355' (I think they should have). '70 Chevy '454' = 454.1 CI '70 Pontiac '455' = 456.1 CI '70 Olds '455' = 454.4 CI '70 Buick '455' = 455.2 CI One of the big differences on the Buick 455 is that it was 'over square'- with a bore of 4.31" and a relatively short stroke of 3.90". These were the largest pistons & the shortest stroke of the 4 big blocks above. A shorter stroke g
