Heck, I laughed my arse off watching a guy with a 66 corvette with a 383 and all the suspension goodies absolutely knocked down every cone at autocross. Sheeesh, the old saying "inspite of or because of" came to mind ;)

    *IF* I ever get back into autocross and track days I'll build a real poopbox and race in the class.

    I've driven a BB Cobra from MN to MD and trust me it was not that much fun. Give me a normally aspirated P car and a real coke thanks.

    GASP. If only I owned some high desert property this would be booked 365 days on AirBnB.

    It is kinda sexy.

    I've got a 1967 Mustang Coupe that I've owned since 1983. I'm the second owner. Factory air, auto, 289. Someone out there has the itch to restore it, but not me. I'll likely sell it this year. Arizona is a great place for a classic car with its low humidity and mild winters.

    Is there a velocipedesalon for BMW ownership? At this point I am not looking to make performance mods, mostly just advice for a first timer. Thank you in advance.

    Those are an expensive option! Plus if you get that option you have to delete the privileged and entitled package. Since I am looking to purchase a used vehicle there are not a lot of vehicles configured that way - particularly in the northeast!

    I did kind of fall in love with the seats and engine of a car I test drove.

    Saw a GTR of the last generation in rainy Oregon freeway traffic. Looks like it has rearward blind spots that Mothra could hide in.

    My stepfather was the aeronautical engineer for the Lisa Marie (Convair 880). I've used the gold fixtures, and my god, the amount of leather in that plane.... It's a museum now.

    Why are car dealership websites still stuck in 2003 webpage tech? Each and every one is god awful in its own many and varied ways. Search filters are hot garbage and barely usable. At least three pop ups per page click- live chat, coupon, email subscription, trade in offer.
    Jeez it just makes visiting the dealer seem palatable by comparison.

    My experience is that car dealership websites are, to a large extent, designed for the needs and desires of salespeople. I was tangential to the online car sales platform industry for a moment, years ago, and my impression was that the average stakeholder could care less about any research into what web-using customers actually need and want (or don’t want). It was my numbers, my messages, all at once, all the time.
