RE: Pets in a Resturant

I think the time for this type of legislation is ripe. Legislation regarding service dogs may happen in Canada.

RE: 2016 Chevy Camaro

Birth of the Camaro 1967! Wish I still had my 67 SS 350, with rally headlights & hood and debadged. 295HP 10.25 compress ratio, Muncie wide ratio, 3.23 gears and Bose 8T Stereo. VV Mono Leaf rear springs VV, 68 brought a better rear suspension. Bought it in 68 while in the Coast Guard and sold it in the early 70's. Drats! Got http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj53/snoking1127/camaro2.jpg In the late '60's I had a '67 Camaro RS coupe, with the 327 V8 and 4 speed Muncie. I know exactly what you mean about that mono leaf rear suspension. That axle used to jackhammer on hard starts. I also didn't care for the GM shifter, although a Hurst shifter would improve things. Did I mention the 9.5 inch drum brakes ? Other than those things, I really liked my '67 Camaro RS. There's only a few vehicles I've had, that I still wish I had. That Camaro was one, another was my '62 Volvo PV544s (Sport), with the B18s engine. I actually wouldn't mind having a 2016 Camaro...the 3.6 liter V6 engine would do just fine for me.

RE: The Thrill Is Gone: RIP B.B. King.

Sad to see him go. He was one of the greatest. I first heard him in 1969. It was a jazz radio station in Edmonton, Alberta. I've been a fan ever since.

RE: It is with great sadness....

A buddy of mine is an amateur drag racer. About two years ago he had his GM 10 bolt axle rebuilt with new gears and had a locking axle installed. I believe for parts and labour, it was around $ 1500 in total. They used quality parts. It wasn't a dealership though, it was a performance car shop that does a lot of axle rebuilds, along with building performance engines, etc. He figures he's had at least 90 + hard launches and runs down the drag strip with no problems. Also uses the car as a street car. You might want to check with performance shops and gear shops, along with the dealer to get the best price....with quality parts.

Littering and it's effect on wildlife

It bothers me when I see wildlife affected by litter that has been casually discarded by careless individuals. I realize skunks aren't popular, but as the man in the story says, what a horrible way to go. Creature dies after getting it's head stuck in drink cup

RE: Seasons changing?

I've been around the same area for 66 years. I haven't noticed much difference. Some times we hit the hottest day...or coldest day for a particular date. But that's the way it's always been. On the same token sometimes there are records in heat/cold that are still there and were established in the late 1800's. Climate does change naturally...it's the way of the world. I live in a city that's known to be the coldest large city (over 600,000 pop.)....but dinosaur remains have been found about 60 miles away....and north of here....palm tree fossils have been found. But then at another era, in the same area... thousands of years ago there was thick glacier ice over where I live....then it melted 1000's of years ago. So change happens . Lately I've noticed many scientists are starting to say what we are experiencing is the natural variability of climate. That is what I have believed has been happening for a long time....it's just natural climate variability.

RE: This is why some people don't fly!

I don't like flying in passenger jets. Have been able to avoid them for years. Unfortunately this fall, we may have to fly. Not looking forward to it at all.

RE: $500,000 Mountain Bike

How about a Vincent Motorcycle brochure for $500 instead ? :B Wow...$ 500 for a Vincent brochure. Think I'll content myself :) with my lot cheaper, Vincent reproduction tin pressing of a early Vincent Black Shadow. It is a repro of Vincent advertising that would of been found in a Vincent dealership.

RE: $500,000 Mountain Bike

I can't imagine a bicycle being worth 500K. Now a vintage Vincent motorcycle, for around 50K....that I would love to have.

RE: NASCAR question...

I know who you mean when you refer to Jr., but to me there will only be one Junior....Junior Johnson. I followed his career from the Daytona race where he ran his '63 Chevy Impala with the mystery 427. What a race, what an engine. Junior Johnson was a colorful racing driver in his era. Don't get me wrong I like the modern Jr. ....a very good guy.

RE: Graffetti in the National Parks

Personally I absolutely hate graffiti and "graffiti artists" but that's just me. X 2. In my town we have a huge railway yard . I've checked out the train cars in the past few years and many of them are absolutely covered with graffiti 'art'. I've seen some photographs of the same rail yard...filled with train cars...back in 1962. No graffiti anywhere on any of the train cars. It was pleasant to look at the pics of train cars, the way they were. In my experience artists create their work on their own property...ie; canvas, etc. I'm not sure why graffiti specialists only seem to 'create' their work on other people's property, invariably without the owner's permission.

RE: 1000 miles on 2015 Silverado 6.2/8 speed

Nice truck, great engine and I'm impressed with the MPG. Powerful gas engines, multi speed transmissions and good MPG. Back in the late '70's and 80's I would never have thought this combination of good things would ever happen. We're in a golden era.

RE: Wife would like an acadia,traverse,or enclave 09 or 10 ???

I`ve driven a few. definitely not a TV for a TT. maybe a large PuP, but that's it! the engine has it`s share of problems. What problems has this engine had, other than the previously mentioned timing chain ?

RE: N. Cal to Florida

I took a 2015 Explorer (3.5 V6 non turbo) out for a long test run and would agree with you. It does seem underpowered. I think it's quite heavy. It's comfort is excellent. The optional engine is a turbo V6 of course and I'm sure that would be fine in power.

RE: GM trying to keep you from modding your vehicle

Very interesting thread about what does ownership constitute and our ability to modify as per an owner's machinery needs...or simply desires to modify machinery. This thread should stimulate a lot of discussion. Thanks for posting.

RE: Insomnia-cures?

Congratulations on getting off of the anti-anxiety med’s, hope you feel better. My cure for sleeping problems works every time. All I need to do is go somewhere in the rig and I sleep far better than at home. That and the food tastes better. I guess it is the magic of being on the road. What I find relaxing about sleeping in the trailer at a park...is the quiet of the outdoors, the gentle wind rustling through the open screened trailer windows and the Queen sized mattress is wonderful.

RE: Insomnia-cures?

I've never slept a lot. Five-six hours a day is pretty normal for me. My doctor asked me if I'm tired with this amount of daily sleep...I'm not. He says, then my body is getting enough rest...for me. But everybody is different, wise to check individually with your own MD.

RE: Didja ever...

I don't do colour selection of paint. My wife does. She has a very good eye. So far, all is good in paint selection over the years.

RE: GMC Canyon & 30' Airstream

While the Canyon may handle the trailer under "ideal" conditions put it into an emergency braking/ lane changing situation and it's going to fail horribly. It's simple physics. Ever hear the phrase "tail waggin the dog". You know that for sure...." it's going to fail horribly "...even though GM rates this truck...when equipped for towing at it's maximum rating, to tow and handle a trailer of the size/weight in the video. I'm different. I tend to go with the GM (or Ford or Dodge) university trained, engineers who have a pretty good handle on simple physics and are able to design, test and determine what a vehicle's capabilities will be.
