Re: The cars we love/hate & the cars we may buy.

Vinny,

I imagine you have a ‘preservation of assets” mentality, so I am confused when you say you don’t wash your car.

Have a nice day.

Re: Carnivore Diet Experiment

Mark, Thanks for the comment. Thirty-eight years hence I'm not at the track anymore but that was a notable experience. The tendonitis finally calmed down, so I get to do light weights again. BTW, from what Sophie mentioned about the virus, you and I may be on airplanes in 2021. If so, life will cert...

Re: Carnivore Diet Experiment

Sophie,
Since I had the experience of eliminating meat and finding my jogging ability improved, is that just me? And is no correlation indicated?

Thanks.

Re: Carnivore Diet Experiment

We visited Normandy in 2017, just days before D-Day ceremonies. Even the anticipatory build up to the day was fascinating. Our guide rented his whole B & B to his buddies from the Netherlands Airborne. A photo of DW with the paratroopers and her wearing one of their helmets was great- and they were ...

Re: Knuckleheads PP thread resurrected

I believe last year someone suggested if/when CraigR or Medium Tex post, people should jump in their cars and track them down. Time was of the essence then. Might have to take one of the idled cruise ships to find CraigR.

Maybe with the virus inconvenience, just let it go for now.

Re: Carnivore Diet Experiment

Bathroom visit? No! I imagine dehydration stopped that inconvenience. But I ate a stack of pancakes once before a run and felt like death-warmed-over. Do not do that.

Re: Carnivore Diet Experiment

At age 27, I ate a vegetarian diet through the winter. When I was in my 20s, I routinely ran 3 to 5 miles per day during warm weather. On a mid-March day, following my new "no meat" diet, I went out for a 2 mile jog to begin the new season. The jog was glorious. I raced around the track. In the prio...

Re: The cars we love/hate & the cars we may buy.

Looks like I will get the repaint on the 30 year old Accord. Question: Is it worth spending an extra $500 to get rust cut out in two areas immediately beyond the rear wheel wells? The cost might be less. The car will look nice after the paint job. If I also get the rust cut out, the car will be welc...

Re: The cars we love/hate & the cars we may buy.

And that retained cash can be pretty handy. I can always get another new/newish car that requires collision coverage. I would like to get a new Tesla in 4 years. In the interim, I hope to have that solid 25% that Harry talked about. It won't be deep cash, though. BTW, i believe that Harry Browne fan...

Re: The cars we love/hate & the cars we may buy.

Re the paint job: The car is like an adopted child, at this point. Any paint job and body work would fit nicely into a declining level of average annual maintenance expenditures. Funny thing, the mechanic said my steel car would withstand a collision better than a current car. The chiropractor, whil...
