My second all time favorite NASCAR driver passed away on Monday. The old grey fox David Pearson!

Oh wow, didnt realize he was still alive. I remember him. The battles he would have with Petty, Yarborough, Allison Brothers the good ole days of NASCAR.

Back when men were men. These ****ers nowadays couldn't wheel one of those old beasts from back then even if they did have to ***** to run one of them flat out. Those cars were primitive, actually based on a stock car, and fast as hell. I loved David Pearson, was my favorite as a kid. Hell, he used to have them leave the factory cigarette lighter in them and tape cigs to the dash so he could smoke while racing.

I loved NASCAR in the 1970's and 80's. I don't even know who races anymore.

Totally agree. I've got a bit of a personal connection to a driver back then, and hearing the stories he would share makes them almost not even comparable to the modern guys. I laugh everytime i see one of them smoking in the car.

The thing I hate most today is that that time of year is here to put the cover on the Car and call it a year. Getting too FN cold. Did the last of the detailing, pulled the battery, and buttoned her up yesterday. It just makes me sad... Going to be a long winter. Oh well something to look forward to... Spring!

...that's what you support...
I blame the parents for putting their child on the front lines like that. They KNEW we had sent troops to the border. Now, if you want to welcome everyone to Canada, perhaps we can provide safe transportation through YOUR southern border.

So we let them in and then fire? At least we used non-lethal force. Mexico calls them invaders, but we can't? Mexico has also offered to let some of them stay, but they turned the offer down. I wish we could just dump them in your lap. Canada has all the answers. Funny that they aren't trying to get there.

If the American is trying to cross your border illegally, your government has the right to defend said border. How your government defends the border is up to them.

2019 Ford Fusion Sport.
Twin turbo V6, All-Wheel-Drive, 325 hp, 380 ft-lbs of torque.
My wife and I test drove one yesterday, and wow what an underwhelming experience.
I think the 250-hp Buick wagon we drove a couple weeks ago was quicker and handled better.
And certainly shifted better.
The Fusion offered an "amazing" combination of lagging acceleration, mushy shifts, and uncomfortable seats

That laggy acceleration goes back to the first Fusion sport, it was brutal. You'd get nothing and then all of a sudden the boost would hit combined with a flurry of torque steer and you better be holding on!
