This has nothing to do with NASCAR, but I must say that Kobalt Tools rock! I have been buying more of them since getting disappointed with others. I know, Kobalt, are Chinese made but they are high quality!

Flame away FR!

I grew up during the post war period when ‘japanese’ meant ‘junk.’

I drive a Toyota. Chinese tools went from so-so anvils to pretty sophisticated machinery and electronics, which would not have happened without western engineering and capitalization. We haven’t left the caveat emptor phase, as far as I’m concerned, but the US has given its manufacturing to the chinese (... and Mexicans and ...)

Hey, I’ve got a thread to post. BRB.

I’m not sure what Atlanta is like but Tallahassee has upcoming freeze warnings. Should be a chilly track and great weather for fans.

I’m really conflicted on that waar AFV. A few of my grandparents arrived via Ellis island (north) and some of my grandparents came here through Texas (south) so I am siding with the Indians...

Nice intro glock.
Missed last weeks participation. Computer blew up.
Was going to cost so much I got a new one.

Getting used to a new puter is like getting a divorce and getting remarried. Lots of nice new stuff but what a pain in the butt. A local computer shop built this new dream lady for me. As is life, time will tell.

I didn't realize the withdrawal I would have without one.

I’m not belligerent, I’m nuanced.

Anyway, after snowing big, pretty flakes all day yesterday, some decent weather is finally gonna hit the metro Atl. Local weatherman Glenn Burns, who said yesteday morning at 6 am that it would not snow, says we may get close to 70 this weekend.

Paging Al Bore, Atlanta needs some that Globull warming.

I’m old enough to remember when Japanese was junk. Then it went to Taiwan, Korea, Brazil, Mexico, India, China, etc. It’s all relative, but all countries make some decent goods if you are willing to pay the price.

After the snow clears from the Alaskan misery headed here Thrusday, the weekend looks wonderful. It hit mid 50’s today, and will likely snow tomorrow, but this race will be watched by the Glock family ON THE DECK. Woo.. second sign of spring (Daytona is the first).

... and not only do the products mature with improved sales, capital influx, etc., their country’s understanding of the free enterprise system breaks barriers to support that improvement. Happens time and again, and the countries you point out are examples. There is no finer vehicle for the price than my ‘made in Tokyo’ than I drive. It just took them learning some savvy and a chunk of time to make it turn out that way... but it did.

The Chinese are following the same pattern, and are going to give the US a hell of a ride. Hang on. Due to this first year of Obama, they’ll own us. Another year or two of the same and we’re economically toast, no matter our politics.

Ooops. Forgot myself. Nascar thread.

Hey, how about that Mark Martin!

While on vacation last fall, we drove around the outside of the Atlanta track, checking out the RV campgrounds etc. Looking like a venue we may try to go to within a year or two.

Very impressive facility. But nothing compared to Charlotte.

I've been to Atlanta, but not Charlotte, so I can't compare them, but Atlanta is a great track.

OTOH, nothing will rival Talladega at pure racetrackness.
