    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    With only being back in for a short while now after my 17 year taper, I'm going to forego Indy this year. I'd like to make it a trip that is a little closer to home, too. Anyone know the locations of the next Nationals meets?

    Hi Kevin. Next year Nationals will be in Mesa, az. I swam there in the past in a great outdoor complex and had
    good times [ for an old fat man ] and will most likely go again next year.
    Hope you were not impacted by any of the past flooding.

    Arizona, eh? Hmmmmm..... Any website or further details on this?

    Back on topic of non-swimming related discussions, no, I was not impacted by the flooding. However, I was working a temporary assignment in Orange, TX for 6 months during the flooding there. Whoa, Nelly! That was not cool. I got a new rental car every week I was there, though. I think I drove everything National offers in their stables.

    No Mesa info. It is just listed as the next year's site. Info is usually listed within 3 - 4 months ahead of the National event.
    You can look at the past year it was held there for some back ground info.

    Lots of people in urban areas shy away from cars and that's fine. I have never been in a Tesla.
    They look very refined in photos that I have seen.

    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    Parking is dreadfully expensive in my neighborhood, and I have good mass transit, so I can't justify $3600 a year to park something I'd rarely use. So when I do need to drive, I borrow a car in exchange for a good dinner out.

    I currently drive a Hyundai Azera. Sometime in the next 6-12 months I'm looking to get an SUV or a truck, exact model is unspecified so far.

    My daily driver is a Honda CR_V to haul anything and the grand kids. Great reliability and future resale.

    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    OK The new Vette is here! A 2019 Grand Sport in Sebring Orange pearl color. It has all the fins,scoops and curves of a race car and I really like it. 460 HP - so I'm not worried about gas mileage. Now if it would stop raining buckets around Chicago suburbs, I can go enjoy it!

    Sorry to hear about the shoulder. My wife has had 7 operations on hers 2 shoulders. The Doc. wants to replace them but, she is working out a lot to try to hold off doing it. My son is looking for a "winter" car in stick and all wheels drive at a low cost. Any ideas for him?

    Anything turbocharged, without any signs of engine modification by prior owner(s). A compression check of each cylinder would tell him the overall health of the engine.

    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    slow poke You sound like my kind of driver. Cycles, an eco car and a full blown hot rod! I just returned from 1,030 miles on my goldwing doing the back roads of la Crosse wis. with my buddies. I know --- goldwings are thought of going to Dairy Queen but, we scrape the pegs on tight turns and do 65 mph high speed sweepers all the time! I also have a Honda cr-v and a new Corvette Grand Sport.
