Traded the 2019 Pilot in on it. Slightly stiffer ride than the Pilot. This one seems to have a little more leg room than the 2019 Ridgeline (drove one the day I shopped while having the Pilot serviced). The three hour ride back from Reno was very comfortable.
Rented a ‘22 a couple of weeks ago while working up in Omaha. I couldn’t get use to the push button shifting.

Yeah, it's going to take me a while to get used to it also, but the 9 speed tranny is smooth as butter. The radio/entertainment screen could use a reworking - it seems a step back from the Pilot and less intuitive. I do think I'm going to like flipping the back seats up when I take the dogs to the vet.

Watching the news last night.

Don't know about ya'll, but when someone is being filmed in front of their bookcase, I'm usually more interested in what's on the bookshelf than what they have to say. :D

As an example, last week I saw a paperback of "Dune" on one of them (can't remember who it was). It was at the far right of the shelf, but I thought it pretty cool.

So getting back to last night - check out the 356 Cabriolet model! You don't see that everyday. Top marks for this bloke!!! ;)

Watched the beginning of the Goodwood Festival live on YouTube this morning. The Porches dominated IMSA racing and Le Mans for a number of years. Saw a number of them race at Road America in the 80's. I believe it can be said that these unlimited prototypes are the fastest vehicles in racing due to the downforce that can be achieved with the full body design. They also tend to fly very well in a spin.

I had the Vega GT, one friend got the Pinto MPG and another got the Maverick. Three of the best cars ever made!!!
A friend had a couple of Capris. The first one was basically a Pinto with a different body. The second one he had was a few years later and it had the V-6. It had a little pep.

the Vega looked nice. If they had just used aluminum on the heads and iron block it would have fared better. Maybe a bigger bore to offset the weight of the block.
