  1. Taste is certainly subjective, but I find this to be a very uninspiring looking car. I remember the 240, 260 and the 280's were very, very cool looking. It seems to me that each successive generation has become more and more bland. I really cannot remember the last time I saw a Z on the road.
  2. Great work Bill! Looks superb.
  3. After about 60 years or so, the concept of free trade is collapsing. It's going to take a very long time to undo what has been done.
  4. I saw on the news the other night that a poll was done about this. The people who wanted permanent DST or standard time split evenly. 8% liked the changing of the clocks. The enticement of DST is the extra hour in the evenings. It is a lot easier to get yard work done and such when not fighting the clock. Kids can play outside longer. There are benefits. Keeping DST permanent was tried in the mid 1970's as a way to save energy. It was argued that with the extra hour of daylight, homes would consume a little less energy, and in the aggregate, it would help a lot. One of the problems was that there was a record number of kids hit by cars walking to school in the mornings because of the darkness. After one year - maybe two we went back to changing the clocks twice a year. A lot changes in nearly 50 years. In my area, I don't think many kids walk to school. I will not comment on other cities or towns. The U.S. is a country that splits 50 - 50 on almost every issue. To have 92% of the population say they do not like changing the time twice a year, the politicians will get this done. Most who favor the other time will adjust. And then there will be boards like this for people to vent about how they were in favor of the time standard.
  5. I had the same thing happen, and I think it is because I put the second coat on a little too heavy. I got to two points and did not move the can quickly enough and the paint built up a little bit. This is where the paint wrinkled.
  6. I saw that, and while I am not much of a baseball fan, there are a lot of common folks who earn their living at the parks. I am glad they will be earning money soon.
