    Unverified Ownership 2005 Subaru Outback

    Since there's not much going on in my life right now except snow and ice, I thought I'd take a minute to introduce my latest purchase. I'll do an "Ownership Verified" photo after all this white, slick stuff goes away and I can run the new arrival through the car wash. I'd been looking for a...

    1966 Triumph TR4A sold

    Hi folks. It’s been another long period of time since I posted anything. I drop in and read the forums occasionally, but just haven’t had anything relevant to say during this virus thing. At this point, I’ll also have to admit that I’ve become addicted to ‘’ and reading (and...

    Unverified Ownership 2019 Mazda6 S

    Having sold both my Focuses, I've been shopping for new 'daily' wheels. I ended up with this Mazda6 - it's the "S" - or base - model: 2.5 liter, 187 HP, automatic with the only option being the Soul Red paint. As some of you know, I'm not much on technology, so this suited me just fine -...

    McLaren 720s

    Once again, our friend Chris Hunt has brought something really interesting to our small-town-USA Memorial Day Parade. This year, he showed up with a brilliant white McLaren 720s. He really wowed the locals, blipping the throttle on the 710 HP turbocharged 4-liter V8, making all sorts of...

    Best BMW forum?

    Being a bit lazy here. For some time, I've been thinking about thinning the current herd of wheeled critters hanging around my property. I've been considering buying another BMW, but I don't have a lot of experience with the newer ones. (I've only owned three 2002s, all of which were sold long...

    Lost my wife

    This is a tough one to post. Last Tuesday, my wife passed away. She had battled cancer and heart problems for the last 16 years. We had been married for 46 years - we did get to celebrate our 46th anniversary before she passed. Nothing anyone can do, but I feel a bit better letting my friends on...

    Doug's track car is for sale

    My friend Doug just HAS to have at least one major project going. He's one of those self-taught guys who isn't afraid to tackle almost anything. Before he retired, he owned and operated a welding/fabrication business that served the local railroad shops and quite a few other customers in 'heavy'...

    Southern Ohio Forest Rally is this weekend

    I would have already posted something on this if my life hadn't been in such a tailspin. My wife spent six days of the last week in the hospital with some pretty serious heart problems. Since we don't have any other close relatives, any run-and-do jobs fall to whichever one of us is healthy...

    The new software sucks

    I just absolutely HATE this new version of the site. Surely vBulletin must know that it took a giant step backwards. Now I'm back to not being able to post attachments... Who knows why???? I'm also still unable to see details of the folks who are posting - like location and age... despite...

    Another 'new phone' question

    As you folks know, I'm an old guy - and - try as I may, I just can't keep up with all the new electronics. So, I need to replace my Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. I'm looking for something less expensive that I can switch over to without going to the new 'nano' SIM and SD cards. The plan is to keep...

    Las Vegas tire questions

    Off on another tangent… This question is specifically for folks who live/have lived in the Southwestern U.S., or other hot, dry climates with lots of harsh sunshine. (This would include you, Spectre!) A member of another forum that I frequent has asked for suggestions on what brand of tires to...

    Charlie Rose??????

    If, yesterday morning, you had asked me to make a list of celebrities that I thought would be LEAST likely to be involved in a sexual predator scandal, Charlie Rose would have been at, or near, the top. What the hell is wrong with these guys? Did they not learn anything about respecting other...
