While my two cars have vastly different turning radii, there's no confusing which one I'm in. However, on occasion I do find myself looking for the clutch pedal when starting the automatic and trying to press a steering wheel start/stop button that isn't there on the Spider.

I’ve been so used to driving simple basic work trucks for so long that it has taken me some serious time to adjust to learning and using advanced features. I still struggle to park it straight since I’m 40+ years used to making wide due to poor radius turns in bigger trucks, vans and pulling trailers. Old habits die hard but I’ll get the hang of it some day. I do like my truck, especially when I fill it up at the pump. 23 + MPH compared to 10 to 13 or so. Paul.

How do you like your Ranger, Paul? A friend of mine works on it. I remember when trucks worked for a living. The fancy versions now rival luxury cars.

Interesting take about factory new look and feel Dave. Within days after I retired my service truck was the 1st thing to go and I replaced it with a new Ford Ranger truck. The day I took delivery it was cold wet and raining so in reality once I got it home it was pretty yucky looking. Paul

Happy owners will only see the detailed, factory-perfect car of their dreams. I've never had a car look as good as the day I took delivery, and it's never bothered me.

Porsche haters would love to see that.

Because the top of this large parking structure is open air, though now gated off, it is still open to the elements...and there must of been 50 very beautiful Porsche's in a wide array of models...but all was kind of sad to me so I didn't photograph it.

Best Wishes, Traveller

Let's see some of those Porsches. Do you have a favorite?

Guest: Great Escape...very nice!

Paul: Alas, I AM NOT traveling...all things considered in today's world...I am not quite sure when I will again.

Life is tough in an invite to Maui today...I declined....I squint into the foggy future...who knows?

Best Wishes, Traveller

PS Shot from the top of the Pasadena Superior Court parking structure...which, interestingly, is now gated off to store $140~200,000 Porsche's for a local and a bunch of rich

Oh, I like it. Great composition.
Our photo club has a topic for this month's contest of Architecture. This would be great for that.

Very nice but I feel like.... well like a Peeping Tom. Sweet, now show us the good stuff. You know the really really good stuff. ;->

Is this in the LA vicinity or are you as your name imply traveling again. Paul
