    BITCOIN

    Beers for Klaus for turning us on to MSTR. I'm up just under 20% on my $10k investment.

    Ford's All-Electric Mach E | Drag Strip and Road Tested | How Good Is It?

    They're not as bad as you're portraying them to be, nor are they as good as the greenies would have us believe. The truth, like always, is somewhere in the middle. My criteria for my next car was whatever the next Ford EV was. It turned out to be the MME. I've never had an SUV or CUV and not...

    It'll be less than 4 years from now that Ford has 400 mile range vehicles. The issue is, and will continue to be range loss during winter for a lot of people.

    Ford's All-Electric Mach E | Drag Strip and Road Tested | How Good Is It?

    OK. FWIW I am not a fan of driving 300 miles then getting right back in the car five minutes later for another 100. Luckily my use case for my new beater will be 63 miles round trip to work, so zero time standing by the pump for me each week.

    But, how far do you drive daily?

    https://www.reuters.com/business/autos-transportation/when-do-electric-vehicles-become-cleaner-than-gasoline-cars-2021-06-29/ I don't give two shits about my carbon footprint. Again, how many miles do you drive every day that 270+ mile range won't cut it?

    Ford's All-Electric Mach E | Drag Strip and Road Tested | How Good Is It?

    The "break even" point is about 30k miles. JFC, how many miles a day do you drive? And you don't stop for lunch in those hundreds of miles? They're not for everyone, that's for sure. Someone pointed out the MME looks like something a wife would drive. Does that mean my MME will be a step up...

    Pontiac Aztek designer Tom Peters designed the C8 Corvette - both ugly IMO

    My girlfriend and I attended a dinner in Monterey in August with the Ford brass including Farley and Thai-Tang where Camilo did a watercolor for the dinner guests and signed them all. I am having them matted and framed.

    Thoughts on brake caliper color please!

    The whole car is black and blue and they used a shiny aluminum gas cap!

    Funny you should mention Camilo. We caught up with him in the bar late night in Vegas at the Bash and he was entertaining the ladies by drawing... naked ladies lol.

    Thoughts on brake caliper color please!

    Black. IMO painted calipers are in the same boat as chrome gas doors. They're necessary evils, not something to highlight. That said, my f'n Shelby has red calipers and a bright aluminum door. SMH. If it weren't a one of one car I'd change them.

    Frying Pan Into the Fire -- Chip Shortage

    Another year or two. The automakers continue to sell far fewer cars than they have demand for. All of those lost sales add to the regular demand next year and the year after.

    Any avid golfers in here?

    I had a set of Ping irons and wanted to get a new set. Coincidentally, the course by my house had a Ping fitting so I went. He measured my hand height when standing and came up with the shaft angle to the hosel and then the overall shaft length which for me was an extra inch. Overall it was...

    Tesla moving headquarters from California to Texas

    Two reasons, engineering talent and the weather.
