    • Logically, that makes sense Frosty but one thing that this pandemic has shown me is that logic and common sense have gone out the window. I have heard of quite of few incidents at Universal and Disney World (which you have to wear a mask to be at) of people from states with mandates, etc... stating "This is my vacation. I don't want to do this on my vacation." etc... Simply because you're on your vacation doesn't mean the virus is not going to infect you. Back in May when we had road blocks into our state to screen for New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and other epicenters to inform them to do so, people were just driving around them. Either getting off the exit before or driving off road to go back to the exit before (I kid you not). Poor planning by whoever setup those roadblocks. I'd have a cop waiting and fine people who did that. Then people who flew in from anywhere were supposed to quarantine for 14 days.  My Dad has always said how do you enforce that quarantine? You can't really. Sure, law abiding and community conscious individuals like you or I will certainly abide by it but I would say people like you or I are not the ones spreading this thing.    Alright, done with my rant of the whole stupidity that is this pandemic response of individuals  
    • Curious - I have no idea. I would need to know more about this car.
    • I think the snowbirds from northern states with mask mandates in place like New York and Michigan won't have an issue wearing marks or freak out. It's the more liberal states that have failed to instituteituite some sort of mask mandate that you have to worry about. So you are going to have a mixed bag of snowbirds. Now the interesting thing is this -  will they be allowed to come to Florida without having to do a 14-day self-quarantine? One thing I had not expected in this pandemic was a shortage on coins. Everywhere I go these days, I see signs about asking for exact change or using credit/debit cards because the stores or restaurants are short of coins. Heck banks that never use to accept hand rolled coins are now accepting them just to get them back into circulation! Go figure.
    • Yes I do get that mileage. I record my mileage and gas consumption every time I drive from Michigan to West Virginia for the annual car show in Charleston. It's a combination of expressway and US highways. It's about a 7 hour, 400 miles trip one-way. Drop the top and the mpg drops to around 8 mpg. But hey - it's a convertible - what do you expect? I know LS motors are stout, but if this was my motor with 175k miles on it, I'd be looking at a set of new bearings, some general block clean up, and perhaps have the crank and bores inspected for wear. Some light port and polish work on the heads (nothing radical - just improve overall flow). Then go with whatever performance improvement parts I had in mind. However, I get that money talks too. It's your wallet at work here. I have not forgotten that. It's merely a suggestion for longevity.
    • Florida is a well, a very loosely governed state when it comes to COVID restrictions. Many snowbirds have stated they want to come down and early because of that. My county is also very heavily republican and some radically so that they are under that belief that masks are the devil and a breach of our freedom. How we got a mask mandate passed in my county is beyond me but very happy we did as we are seeing some great results. We went from having about 200-250 cases a day to 50 so either people stopped going out to avoid masks or they are working. Win-win in my book. Problem is now that they are talking about repealing that in September so we don't scare away the snowbirds. Basically asking them to come here and give us the virus freely and unimpeded. Completely asinine. Swear this whole situation is more and more let's find the idiots. Instead of acknowledging what works and creating an approach based on that, they go backwards. None of these politicians passed an elementary science class and it shows. Yep. The virus doesn't react different dependent on the weather, it's primarily human behavior in those times. When it's colder, people tend to be inside more where it spreads more easily. I always laughed at the people who said the heat will scare away the virus or make it act different. If that was true, why does Florida, Arizona, Australia, and other hot locations still have the virus?   Having an autoimmune disease, I've basically settled down and accepted this is now my life for the next year or more till a vaccine has been widely distributed. Getting worried about my parents as my mom is taking more and more risks. My brother-in-law is a little more loose on this whole thing and I think that is influencing my mom. My dad and I are trying to make sure she doesn't go too far.  I feel ya. My fiancé works in a bank. At the beginning, it was hard for the bank to procure PPE for her so we had to use the items we found. The bank has been really good about the whole virus things except for that in the beginning and then when they opened up to the public. Still irks me how they did that. Luckily, I've always worked from home so hasn't really impacted me much in that sense. However, these shut downs have negatively affected the company I work for. Hoping everything works out as this is by far one of the best companies I've worked for. It still is crazy how specific things are scarce. Soda is one thing that shocked me being as such. Cans are in short supply but even getting bottled soda of a specific type is hard. I enjoy a soda 2-3 times a week so not a huge deal for me but it is one of those pleasures I like.
