From a national leadership perspective (federal and state governments), we have almost completely given up on protecting the population from the virus. Our president and so few governors have the balls to just say “Everyone STAY AT HOME NOW, except for Essential and Critical activities”. The hit to the precious Read more

Nostalgia is a funny thing - someone might actually pay this. But in the end, while this one was THE one to have, and this one is every bit as nice of one of these as you will probably find, we’re left with the simple break-point fact which is this - Fox Body Mustangs are hot garbage even when perfect, in the ‘toy’ Read more
