    California? Hard to Believe.

    Works great, until you need to park somewhere like DTLA and they have meter maids that leave you a ticket each day. Also gives a cop an immediate reason to pull you over, which is really only an issue if you're the drinking and driving sort. I had tinted windows and no front plate in CA and...

    They blew that up last year. For reasons that don't really make sense, they changed roads that were open from the morning to the afternoon. Hopefully they get it back under control. I've been out there a couple of years and will likely go back this year.

    F1 Comes to Vegas

    Those tracks don't have enough capacity, amenities, or proper surfaces (looking at you Watkins.) The fact is that current F1 wants to pack a ton of people into expensive seats and let a few of us into GA. The fact that ratty old tracks like Silverstone, in the middle of nowhere and lacking all...

    Can you show me one case where your silly fantasy actually played out?

    Think About This...

    The dealership would be the start and end of responsibility. Once it's in their hands, the vehicle owner is absolved of all responsibility. The stupid argument that it's like lending a car to a friend is not the case at all. The car was taken to a dealership service department. If you park...

    Frivolous lawsuits are still frivolous lawsuits. A counter suit is well within reason.

    I was pretty steamed, but also apparently three hours of detention and dull questions is my breaking point. I’m an accountant, not a marine.

    2022 Formula 1 Season

    Yeah, sounds about right. I've been to something like 40 countries and Canada is the worst experience I've had with Customs. I had a college roommate get married in Ottawa, I was recently divorced, might have been deep into a drunken phase and have never been the best of planners. Large parts...

    Think About This...

    Ha, goes both ways. When I was a kid, my dad had a 560SEL that had the most sensitive fuel filters, they'd clog up and kill one bank of the V8 and put the other bank in limp mode. It probably made 50hp at that point. Was a delight to drive a two plus ton sled with the power of a riding mower.

    Think About This...

    A lawyer would have no trouble getting that tossed. One advantage to having a manual is that I've found valets are increasingly more likely to let me just park my own car and pick it up when I'm done. I've actually considered getting the shift knob for my Mk8 with no gear shift pattern, just...

    Spa is next for me. Been to Silverstone, Austin, Indy and Hockenheim. I hear Montreal is great too, but I’m not a fan of Canadian Customs Officers.

    2022 Formula 1 Season

    Helps to be a local, but they've changed the entry/exit strategy nearly every year, plus it's nearly as bad as Silverstone for just being in the middle of nowhere. Rumors have us not being on the calendar every year, likely moving to an every other year format soon. I suspect the three annual...

    First year of Austin was a mess. Amenities weren’t really finished and GA areas were pretty raw.
