  1. This is the 2nd one after it came out that the first one was a bit staged. Member
  2. Kids these days I swear...here we are busting a** at work while one of our coworker's called in sick. Turns out he isn't sick at all, he's selling crap on some app called Whatnot or something. One of my other coworkers is live streaming this online sale. Hope the boss sees it too and gives him a good reaming. No wonder this country is in the mess it's in with bums like this.

    Yeah it's on Fox. There is weather in the area and the race start has been pushed back to close to 4pm. Pretty good chance to get the full race in but with all the weird weather California is getting this week it might be postponed or rain shortened.
  5. I'm drying out from the soaking rain and watching the Connors.
  6. They are really nice cars. Really wish I was getting the new car as I would get one. Well my dad for some reason or another cancelled getting the stent put in his carotid artery this past Tuesday. The surgeons don't want to do the heart surgery without getting the stent put in as the risk of a stroke is too great because his right carotid is over 90% blocked. I don't know why but I wish he'd make his mind up one way or the other about the heart surgery and stop putting the rest of us through the emotional rollercoaster.
  7. I wonder how much it would be if they drop the Team Knight Rider series out of the set. I was never a fan of that show. Since the 'Hoff is so huge in Germany it's not surprising to see they put out a special edition Blu-ray of the series. Mill Creek releases aren't really worth the money. They compress the quality to fit more episodes on each disc.
  8. Did some test driving Friday. Drove a Buick Regal tourx. Those are rare and since the wife is getting the new car I figured I got to take the chance to drive one since one showed up at a local dealer for sale. It handled great for it's size. Then we went to another dealership to see what they had and they just got in a 2014 Chevy Impala with the options she wants and without the moon roof and only 5,000 miles. It still had the new car smell too. It sure was nice but after doing some research we decided not to buy it since the 2018-20 model years are Consumer reports best buys since Chevy worked out most of the issues. One main issue was the trunk leak from the brake light area and the fix is a new rubber foam gasket to replace the thin one that was put on at the factory between the brake light housing and body. Unfortunately gm doesn't think it's a recall-able issue even though it effects every single one they made till the put the new gasket on 2018 or 19 models. Dealers charge anywhere from $600-1200 just to do this gasket replacement.

    I don't think they will do that at the Coliseum. It's just not big enough. They might try Portland for just one race to replace Auto club speedway for 2024 season. They're turning auto club speedway into a short track. The plan is to basically use the front stretch and then put in two narrow turns like Martinsville and a short back stretch so it'll look like a shorter narrower Richmond. It's supposed to be done for 2025 season.

    Garret you're not the only one that didn't watch the whole Clash. Once they got to the "halftime" show I turned it off. I'm with Dale jr I hope this is the last year they do the coliseum race. There's plenty of short tracks on the west coast they could hold this race instead of having to temporarily build one. Or better yet move it to a short track in Florida and bring back the speed weeks.
  11. Yeah and the younger generation thinks they should be making $20+ an hour and get hour lunches and half hour breaks and also make their own hours. One of them got their walking papers a few weeks ago at the wife's work when they went off on the foreman for changing their break.
  12. Lesson learned: Don't ever EVER buy a vehicle from family!!! Because they will never let you forget the deal they gave you. If it was my decision I would put a for sale sign in it tomorrow but it's the wife's car so it's up to her.
  13. Visiting family for postponed Christmas. We never make it to midnight, either crash on the couch or in bed.
  14. Electric car owners in warmer climates that got the extremely frigid temperatures found out one thing about their better for the environment vehicle's....they won't charge in such cold temperatures . One Tesla owner in Virginia found out the hard way when they tried charging at home and when that didn't work they drove to a nearby Tesla supercharger spot where it once again failed to charge, in fact it drained the battery further . That would explain why I only seen one electric car on the road over the frigid weekend. This is why I say automakers should be throwing their money into hybrids instead of only electric cars. For one our national electric grid is not up to the task and is proving quite vulnerable to weather and attacks.
  15. We just received an email from our electric provider that there's the possibility of rolling blackouts for the next 24 hours due to the grid being pushed to near limits. I really hope not as our heater is electric and so is the stove.
  16. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Yeah going to be a weird weather week. Christmas day is going to be about 15 degrees and new years day 60 degrees here.
  17. I swear I remember an episode where Bo or Luke is petting an orange cat when they were visiting someone.
  18. Speaking of the boxed set WB has put out a new one for the holidays this year that's even slimmer than last year's so it takes up less space on your shelf. Several stores had it on sale for $59.99 - 69.99, it includes the reunion movies too I think. However I also read in a few reviews that there is an issue with one of the DVD's not playing right so be warned.
