The Lounge / Weird dreams about your car
« on: August 15, 2019, 11:21:57 AM »
Does anyone ever have a strange dream about their car? I dreamed last night that I was driving my red Hertz when I saw something orange and glowing under the hood between the gaps. Then a lick of flame breached the seam between hood and fender. I pulled over and seized my fire extinguisher from the back seat and sprayed between the seams of the hood to suppress the fire.  When I popped the hood, everything was carbonized in the engine bay. The dream was bad enough to wake me up.

Ford GT / Ford GT compared to 2020 Corvette
« on: August 14, 2019, 10:30:07 PM »
See any similarities here besides colour?  Square steering wheel, mid-engined, body lines.  Even the "C" pillar man oh man!  Only thing missing on the Vette are the flying buttresses.  I wonder where the Vette got its inspiration??  Hmmmmm.

Came up for the time trials and saw Chip Gannassi hanging out at the Ford booth. It's raining now like an sob. Debating whether to stay the night for tomorrow's race. Last year of factory backed racing for the Ford GT. At Siebkens now in the pub. What a great area!

Looks good,  Racing and dog as a narrator.  Wish I had've thought of it myself.

The Lounge / A.I. on its way

Thought provoking to say the least.

Very dangerous in the wrong hands which is usually where technology can end up.  I think we are a long ways away from the interface of which this lecturer speaks however but his observations have merit.

The Lounge / A new Ballade

I wrote this up last Saturday evening into Sunday and finished up Monday night.  Comments welcome.  Be cruel if merited.  And thank you either way.

The Lounge / Rearview mirror dimming button
« on: July 06, 2019, 09:37:12 PM »
This question has less to do with old school mirrors than modern mirrors though my first encounter with using a rearview mirror was in my 69 Mustang coupe. 
For the night time dimming button do you push forward or pull toward you? Mine is kept in a state of pulled toward me during daytime and I push forward to dim night lights. Since I had my first car I have been ritualistic about that but later realized it worked both ways. In my Towncar it's automatic so that doesn't count.
Just curious.

In retrospect it's rather a trivial and ridiculous question. But I'm still curious.

1966 Shelby GT350/GT350H / The red one on the move

Leaving the firm on a lazy Friday afternoon.  Looks like Imgur images doesn't have sound.

There's like a quarter inch clearance from the top the front wheel to the bottom of the lip of the front fender  Just clears enough without rubbing.  I got lucky,
