Yes...long week end on the horizon, its Friday, its the Vroom Room. Come in make yourself comfortable, we have cappuccino and biscotti. Lets hope that we have sustained warmth and sun for the next few days.
The Colonel is still busy with several projects, and it seems it will continue for the next few weeks, seems like its going to go into June, obvious June is just around the corner.
Have you noticed how gasoline quickly reaches market balance pricing. Everyone knows where the pain threshold is...yes $ 1.50 a liter is the sweet spot of pain. The threshold is visited, the reactions are loud and emotional, the price recedes below the threshold and its all good again.
Do you think that CSM (Citizens Main Street) will alter their habits to save gasoline? On a recent extended drive, the confirmation was that the price of gas is irrelevent with little influence as to how people drive. Its huge, its a brick, its displacing the air of 3 small vehicles, and its going fast. The verbal comments is that gas just hit the pain threshold, the obeserved driving habits "gas must be free".
As cars become increasingly more complex, bristling with technology. The mechanical purity of motorcycles increases in appeal...yes motorcycles and hot rods or is it hot rods and motorcycles have a common mechanical appeal, and cool factor.
You must have noticed that every serious car individual, gearhead, has at least one motorcycle, for the "mechanical experience"...
We caught this video on Dean's Garage, that deals with older Honda 750's (the 4 cylinder versions) turned into cafe racers, that captured our interest and resonates.
Have a wonderful long week end...
PS: You thought we forgot...just a bunch of old cars from the 2011 Mille Miglia...here.
