I've been looking at some new (used) cars lately, for me. I'm thinking of going from the E to an S, and looking at AMG in the process. Those are not cheap, but they are really cool.

Dawg fans were grumbling that all these series start out with the away game.  I agree it doesn't really matter. There was some fear ND would not come to Athens when that deal was inked, but I thought it was a given.  Fans worry about silly things at times, duh.  The OU series with Alabama and UGA would be a real thing.

Go for the AMG.  It's a hunk.  Gas mileage will vary.

I had fun with the Caddy CTS-V which is somewhat comparable.

One of my favorite things about this time of year is seeing people pull out their classic cars.   Got to hear and see this guys beautiful 65 Shelby cobra.   Sounded and looked amazing.  It looked perfect and that roar.

Ya know, I'm at the point in my life that it kinda hits me when I say "later" or something like that. What does "later" mean? How many more "later's" do I have? I'm definitely on the other side of "half way", like many others on this board. So, I don't know if I want to wait until later.

I am starting to struggle just a bit getting into the GTI, which apparently is 0.4" lower than the usual Golf.  I've been working out and stretching, and it's starting to be a chore.  Getting into a car like a Corvette at my age starts to be a real chore.  I can see why folks like SUVs (some, I hate'em personally).

Guys my age like to buy that flashy car they dreamed about all their lives, which is fine, but it starts to be impractical.  I know one can pick up a used nice Corvette for quite the discount.

Did I mention how bad the roads in Boston were?  Terrible.  Massachusettes in general had bad roads.

So the wife's car has nitrogen in the tires. Can you switch back to regular air?

Another one. I was trying to adjust the wheels on the screen door where we live and one of the screw heads is stripped. Anyone have a suggestion on removing this screw so I can replace it? Problem is it's recessed and I can't get at it with anything I have on hand. Is there a bit I can buy that will do the deed? Ugh.

Regular air is 79% nitrogen, which I'm sure you know, so it's close.
As for the stripped recessed screw, I think drilling it out may be required.
