Addiction 2022.3

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes, if they are all Dura Ace Di2 bikes. Fifty if they are peasant bikes like mine.

But, no step is too high for a stepper.

I'd take the car because if I can afford that I can likely afford any and all of the bikes I'd ever want.

It was one or the other. Obviously not real life. Sheesh, way to take the fun out of it.

Practically, I'm not sure I could ride 25 bikes! I'm not even sure where I'd park that many. I have a hard enough time riding two and it's even difficult keeping up with the two cars i drive.

My Domane gets most of my miles, and my Jeep gets more than double the miles as the Taycan.

Where did you go to school?

My undergrad took me about 4.5 years. Add another 3 to that, and here I am.

I found I couldn't motivate myself to work for a degree 4-5 years in the future. BUT pay me a salary, and I can motivate myself.
Hold on to your car. The model has been axed and will be no more.

Ten is already a problem.

Well, geez, after 15 years of cosmetic changes only, it's probably about time. Plus the days of gas-sucking supercharged 6+ liter V8s is past.

I mean realistically I wouldnít want to own all of those. I would like to try them though and then pick a handful to keep.

My Challenger with the 5.7L Hemi gets 20 mpg in my usual driving. Probably the 6.4L gets 18-19, and the Hellcat 16 or less, depending on how much crazy you drive it. But the original Hemi Challenger back in 1971 got about 6!

I was watching an episode of "Jay Leno's Garage" on YouTube the other day. The featured car was a V16 Cadillac from about 1932. Not Jay's, but rather belonging to the Nethercutt Collection. Jay was talking with the guy and said, "It gets - what, 3 or 4 mpg?" The guy replied, "That's generous." I mean, is it even BURNING the gas or just pouring it out the tailpipe?

I had a 2014 Audi RS5 with a 4.2L V8 that put out 450 hp. My wife looked over at the dash one day and asked what the number "5" meant on one of the instruments. You should have seen her face when I told her "average mpg - 5."

A little later I had a 2019 AMG C63S with a twin turbo 4.0L V8 that put out 503 hp.

Both could get fairly decent mileage, but what's the fun in that?

The Nethercutt Museum is a couple miles from my house. I've taken the tour twice, it's amazing. The top floor is filled with "orchestrals", music machines powered by air, and a grand player piano.
My friend's father worked there for years as a mechanic in the restoration shop. They did nearly everything in-house and had a full time guy who traveled the world looking for parts and cars. He always said it was a great place to work.

Nethercutt made his money in cosmetics and sold perfume bottles and other containers to other companies. It's called Merle Norman Cosmetics. They had a separate garage and team to maintain the fleet vehicles.

I heard when JD Nethercutt passed away in 2004 his sons fought over the collection and wanted to sell it off but it's still intact and growing.
