    Veteran Day and the 1 Percent

    Probably, in the title, the 1 percent caught your eye first vs Veterans Day. I am not talking about the top 1 percent income bracket, but the 1 percent of the population that has served in the military. For all those who have served, the country owes you a very big thank you. I hope that all...

    How Fast?

    In the Lexus lane, yesterday, hit 91 MPH and there was plenty left. Wasn't sure if monitored by the black and whites, so limited the speed. will shoot for 110 next time out, So, the question is; how fast have you had your Tesla? What is the top speed for a 75 D? Ride was Mercedes S equivalent.

    Dallas Area Charity Laps

    May 25,2019 Texas Motor Speedway is offering charity laps at the speedway with your own car. $40 for three laps and you can buy more. They have a pace car that limits your speed, but it is fun and it is for charity. I believe pictures in the winner box are offered as well.

    Survey Says!

    There are no self-driving cars available right now. It may be hard to believe with all the hype surrounding the emerging technology, but it’s still just hype—excited fanboys buoying a new piece of hardware far above its actual capabilities.

    I changed my mind

    The other day, I posted that I went for the [email protected]$2 grand and no buyers remorse. Today, I changed my mind and wish that I had not spent the two grand.
