Great pictures of the show MistreSS looks like it was a good time. Been a good week for me so far, work was slow so I ended up getting a new one with more pay doing same work or maybe even less. And after dealing with the tire pressure sensors going off for the last year the lemon law went in effect for my 2016 Silverado the first offer from GM was $2000 for the inconvenience , after the attorney claimed he could get a little more we rejected the first offer. Today I received a call and the offer was surrender the vehicle for full purchase price minus the mileage Now in market for new truck.

Question Crazy speeds of Slot cars

I put a link in here for some Slot Car racing in Sweden you have to check this out the speeds are insane, if you reach down to grab a car that has flipped off the track you could loose your hand.

Good morning guys.

Speaking of Chevy trucks, I keep seeing more and more of those new 2019 Silverados and omg are those hideous - imo GM failed miserably with the design on those. The new 2019 Blazer on the other hand, I would rock one of those! I'd call it more of a crossover now instead of a small SUV but still. I saw one in person for the first time the other day, an RS in 'cajun red tintcoat', and I was very impressed. Very aggressive appearance from the front - I think they actually look better in person.

Question That looks like the Camaro and the Aztek had offspring

That looks like the Camaro and the Aztek had offspring, I don't know but they could have been fooling around?

Ugh God the new Camaro is ugly as hell too. Who in the hell is running design at GM right now?

The Camaro needs an ENTIRE redesign, not just refreshes of the 2010 car. That car is the same damn 'shell' since it was reintroduced back in 2010. And why they call the 2016+ Camaro a new generation is beyond me because visually IT'S THE SAME CAR with mild front and rear refreshes. The new 2019 is the same car too but with another variation of refreshes.

I basically agree about the new Camaro and Silverado looking... grotesque. And what is it with black wheels these days? I just don't see the point of that at all.

Interesting that the Dodge Challenger has looked basically the same for a whole decade now... but hey, at least it's not grotesque.

I agree on the Black Wheels thing back in the day when I was still driving traditional Muscle Cars, if you couldn't afford Mag wheels you took off the Hub Caps and ran with the wheels all Black. so I think this is kind of a poor mans wheel. Unless you have some Chrome on them someplace.

Good Monday morning.

A lot of people were painting (or plasti-dipping) their wheels black so the auto manufacturers just hopped on that bandwagon.

Exciting (at least for me)! Bedrock just released new, updated renderings for its Hudson's site development at Woodward and Gratiot Avenues in Downtown Detroit. The original plan was for an 800 ft tower but that has now been revised to a 912 ft tower with a stepped design (shown below). It will surpass Michigan's current tallest building, Detroit's Renaissance Center, by 185 ft. Work at the site has been underway since December 2017.
