I see a Delorean parked around town every so often. Getting parts for those doors can't be easy. I guess at least you don't have to worry about the body rusting.

It's hard to like the new GT when the 2005 version exists IMO. That car keeps the ass of the new one looks-wise.

1 of 1 if you mean looking like it belongs in the 60s racing its namesake, the new one looks like a real super car, not Detroit's idea of a supercar

So a supercar has to look Italian to be legit?

I think it looks like someone gave a damn designing it instead of taking a forty year old photo off the wall and xeroxing it, which should be a prerequisite

My wife is Detroit born and bred and can't understand my love for the Tesla. You've summed it up in one sentence.

Yeah, but she wants the noise and the vibration that comes with it. That says muscle. The launchers used on modern roller coasters to go from a dead stop to speed instantly equate to the same thing for her. Sure, you're going fast but it's not the same as having power. I totally disagree, at least when it comes to me pushing foot on pedal and being pressed back in seat by fist of angry god.

Went golfing today.    Told my neighbor I'm thinking about riding to the golf show at Dulles Expo.      Would be nice to organize a WNFF ride.

Yeah, some sort of "poker run" to raise funds for The Chief.

BTW   If VaRK and I are in it, it would be WNFFOGIE.    :)
