It's like an uglier MGC-GT, but with more power, better handling, and actually reliable.

It's endearing.

I used to pass through the Fonda-Canajoharie-Ft. Plain area from time to time, but never went down to the canal.

When the hell is Peacock going to post Stage 1 of the Vuelta?

Just went to a kick-ass memorial service for my wife's uncle. It was at the Corpus Christi Yacht Club. Open bar started before the service, and everyone was encouraged to have a drink "or two" in hand when it started. Place was packed, the stories were irreverent, and there was both live country western and Mariachi musicians. Was quit fun and touching at the same time.

I was tempted by a couple of Z3/Z4s before the COVID used car price increase, seemed like they were often cheaper than similar vintage Miatas. Word has it that there is soon to be a big jump in repos from people using their stimmy as down payment on cars they couldn't afford. So that might finally deflate the used car market.

In MN, at least, you need to stop if they're stopped, with lights flashing and/or stop sign extended, unless you're on the other side of a divided roadway.


Obviosuly I donít want my child to be hit by a cyclist.

Come September centerville will be off limits.

The regular Z3 and Z4 did depreciate. The M Coupe as above... not really much, and has been high for a decade or more as I recall.

Itís there.

I enjoyed watching the TTT of La Vuelta, but somewhat underwhelmed with the quality of the commentary by Bob Roll and Christian VandeVelde. Would rather have the Eurosport team or, better still, Lanterne Rouge.

If the new car dealers can get their inventory back up that would help the used car market prices come down a bit. I ride by some dealers which are still very low on stock.
A few months ago I went to my old dealer to visit and they had like 40 cars in stock. When I worked there they stocked over 500 cars.

Roll is a bit of a goof, but he has grown on me. I admire ability to translate French online.

Eh, I like them enough. Mostly I want pleasant voices - the Twitchers get all hot and bothered for Sean Kelley, but his voice is like flossing barbed wire through my ears. And Lantern Rouge has the advantage of presenting for a much narrower audience and, I believe, after the fact. Commentating is hard.

A rare treat, I haven't seen a male Ruby-throated in my yard in years.

I've never heard Bob Roll do live commentary. I liked him on that show he used to have.
