Saturday night race. Don’t forget to change your drivers!

I don’t think I saw any neat car threads this week...

And the Tour de France starts this weekend. Wonder what this year will be like, what the talk and gossip will be.

Mtnclimber! Get your flotation devices ready. I heard Norm is going to initiate the emergency protocols for a poodle pool party this weekend due to the coming heat wave. Here’s a tip: he’ll only allow items that float in the pool - no sinking chairs or benches will be allowed.

Speaking of pokies I’ll come visit you.

Are you getting any of the coming heat wave in the West? We’re supposed to be in the 90’s for the next week; 90’s are unusual as we normally average 83-53 during this time of the year. Got back home yesterday - just in time for a Steve Miller concert tonight at the amphitheater.

Yes, it is hot here too. Looks like I am going to be travelling to Colorado Springs frequently for the next year. Don’t want to put all those miles on the S6 so I have been looking around for a second car that is comfortable to drive and that is lower cost so that I don’t care so much about racking up all those miles. The Toyotsa 4Runner gives me back problems after long distances so I need something with good lumbar support. I can get a good deal on the 2013 closeouts on MB C300 so that is what I am leaning toward. Got to look at checking acct balance to see if I need to transfer some funds.

Subaru Outback Limited.

My Tacoma kills my back and after being T-boned in my old Tacoma and waking up in the hospital again, I didn't feel safe driving my Odyssey van any more, so I traded the van for a new Outback.

My new Outback will go most of the place my TRD Off Road Tacoma will go and may be better on ice and snow than the truck is, but gets much better gas mileage, is much larger inside, especially headroom and also backseat leg room, is the best all around "you name it" hauler I've ever had and the driver's seat is MUCH more comfortable than my truck's.

I'm at the age where I really should have a new, red sports car and a 20something girlfriend, but screwed up I bought the Outback instead. Crazy thing is, I am very happy with it. YMMV

I think the Subaru cars are well-made. Problem is that around Boulder, CO I think they come with 0bama bumper stickers pre installed. I would not be able to convince my wife to ride in it. An old 1997 4Runner works fine for hauling dogs or firewood. My wife does not bounce off the ceiling if it gets dirty inside.

I got a MB C300 today. It had been a demo car and has 2,500 miles on it. But it has the premium package with really nice AMG instruments and pretty much all options. The dealerships are dumping the 2013 models, especially the demo models since the 2014 models are coming in. It is a “Certified” MB car and has the warranty bumped up from 5 year 50K mi warranty to a 6 year (from 6 months ago) and 100K mi warranty. And I got $8K knocked off MSRP making it less expensive than the mid-grade 2013 4Runners I had been looking at. It has almost half the horsepower of the Audi S6 I just got, but I think it is good for a long didtance commuter car.

Congratulations on a great deal on a gorgeous car! Your commute doesn't sound so bad now. Between that and your 4Runner, sounds like you've got it covered.

I also congratulate you on having married well and I understand her reaction.

It's a surprisingly capable, comfortable, all-weather machine that has definitely figured out snow and ice, and should be as common as any pickup truck in a lot of the country.

So, it's too bad the Subaru Outback especially, along with some of their other cars, suffers from a certain segment of the population's loyalty, but it is what it is.

And it, in no way, handles as nicely or with that Euro feel like your C300. Enjoy!

If it were just me I would have no problem driving a Subaru. They usually have one or more 0bama stickers, a COEXIST sticker and many times a Free Tibet sticker. Seems to make no sense to me with the clear contradictions. I would have the Free Tibet sticker changed to say Free Tibet AND the USA. I am sure it would get vandalized though. Those tolerant leftists and all that!

The 4Runner is named Beyonce. Have not thought of names for the Audi S6 or the MB C300 yet. But, my checking account is temporarily named Jim Neighbors because after buying two cars for cash in a month my bank account is light in the loafers!

Here is what the MB C300 4matic that I bought looks like. I don't have any of my own photos yet. It still has to be detailed and I pick it up on Saturday.

I’m also at an age that if I did have a 20-something girlfriend:

A) My wife would kill me. If I wasn’t married at the time,

B) I’d have to buy a back friendly vehicle cause I’d.....well, you know.

Whaddaya know, Dale Jr. won a pole. Kyle Petty says Danica isn’t a race-car driver and I saty Kyle Petty isn’t an announcer.

The MC C300 looks like a nice ride and what is it with Subaru’s and Obama stickers? You don’t see many here anymore but invariably they’ll be on a Subaru. Eco friendly vehicle??

Hit 94 here yesterday - not bad - but the humidity was a killer. We are normally in the 18-19% range but yesterday it was 34%. We are cooling down to the low 50’s so the heat is incessant.

Sounds like we graduated in the same class. The rest is best left unsaid...you never know who'll read these comments or where...or in front of a judge.

As to the Subaru and stickers, maybe it's mostly true just in "high concentration" areas?

I live in the heart of NASCAR and, for some reason, I never noticed these cars until I actually bought one. Anyway, now that I do, the only sticker I usually see is the standard advertisement sticker the dealer slaps on.

I got here by way of Chapel Hill and it might be more true there. I remember sitting at lights behind those cars and pretending it was a speed reading test where you try to read all the stickers before the light would change.

I have to admit, on some cars I failed the test. (Your turn, Mrs. Wood)

Thinking about it, it's true that side of the population has succumbed to the dark side in religion, politics and social engineering, but they have generally very good taste in things and places, from Apple to San Francisco to Boston to Vermont and Maine and points in between, including, unfortunately, many very fine machines like this OB.

I'm going to use this to my advantage, like they do. In my world, I am surrounded by the Beast worshiping dark siders and who knows, maybe the OB will allow me to slip past certain defenses, just as obama and company have done.

Maybe I should call it "Cognito", since when I'm in it, "in country" so to speak, I'm always incognito.

Attaboy Dale Jr.!! Take it home!

Have a race scheduled to start in a couple of hours, but I looked at the radar...

TDF got off to an interesting start, bus got stuck under the finish line arch, so they changed the end of the race, bus unstuck, change the end back, but not before most of the field wrecked.

Jr. won a pole and Raceview is free on Nascar for this race (I was going to say tonight..., but I am unsure if they will get the race in tonight).

Yeah. He’s been bad mouthing her for 2 years. He’s not intelligent enough to phrase his comments in a speculative way w/o his bias showing in his dodge and weave comments. Perhaps Kyle’s mad cause Danica’s ponytail looks better then his. Will Danica ever win a race or races? I dunno but it’s just her first year driving full time in a Sprint Car and she already has a pole and is, what, 26th in points? Bottom line is that she is putting a breath of life into a sport that’s losing track attendees.

I wonder if Kyle has every driven a formula one car? Or if he’s just mad she’s the most popular driver on the circuit. I think I’d suggest to Kyle that his priority should be working on his announcing skills; this also doesn’t pass the smell test - there’s something else going on here.

Current local Weather Channel forecast for the race shows mostly cloudy until 5:00 PM CT, then scattered thunderstorms starting @ 5:00 PM CT. 50% chance of precipitation then and for the rest of the evening. Of course they’ve got it wrong before.
