    65 degrees in the start of March in Chicagoland??!! OK I'll take it. I want to bring out the motorcycle and trans am BUT, I know from history that we can still get lots of damp and possibly snowy conditions.
    I also see that this will be a milestone post of number 7,000. WOW
    I spend a lot of time on the forums.

    It hasn't snowed lately because I haven't taken off my snow tires yet. As soon as I do, we'll get a surprise 1-3".

    After a week in cancun in Feb. I know missing the warmth of real sunshine here in Illinois. Remember our "endless pool" is Lake Michigan.

    Gary --- yup, the summer car & bike are still sleeping off winter storage and the snow blower is still in the garage.
    After our state meet and maybe after nationals they will be pulled out for fun.

    This year at the Indy 500 --- Fernando Alonso will jump out of his Formula one car to do the 500 because it is a life time goal of his to do so. The honda engine in both cars will not cause any conflicts with team owners that want to keep him happy in many year contract he has.

    After 14 years and 142,000 miles, I said goodbye to my Vue in February

    Replaced it with a new 2017 BMW X5. I flew to Greenville, SC picked it up from the factory (along with some fun time on the track and off-road course), then drove it home.
    I have the plug-in hybrid version and most of my driving is electric. Since I've been home, I've only gotten gas twice, and even then it wasn't below 1/2.

    142,000 miles on it was good car to own. The BMW is quite an upgrade. The hybrid will be interesting to follow with gas prices up and down daily, you are sure to enjoy the no gas for me aspect of it. Is it as quick as I have read?

    My first car was also a Morris Minor. The traveller version, with the wood framed back section. I had to scrap it eventually as it was suffering from wet rot!

    A Morris Minor is a different kink of car. Wood in a car should be limited to the dash only. What was the date of that car?
    good to hear from the Stockholm area of the world.
    What do you swim?
