Back In Business- And A New Honda Accord


                         Watch Cars & Bids In the Coming Week-  You Can Bid On This Alfa!

            It is car #07 of only 55 produced for North America- The NRING Giulia Quadrifoglio.

It's time to start traveling again after a 16 month hiatus because of Covid-19.  I have not posted anything rercently and apologize for my absence.  Just 10 days ago I returned from a 4 week stay in Upstate New York where I got a workout on the 'family farm'.   I exercised by cutting down a large dead pine tree, rototilled our garden, removed brush and debris from a long winter and got to run through 15 gallons of gas in the Cub Cadet lawn tractor as I mowed and mowed and then mowed some more lawn.

However I did find time to trade in my trusty 2015 Chevy Impala for a beautiful new Honda Accord from Garber Honda in Henrietta, NY.  They treated me right and I've always admired the Accord since the major refresh in 2018.  My ride has a detuned version of the Civic Type R turbo engine with 252 horses that makes the Accord go like squirt. (0-60mph in 5.6 seconds)  It is mated to a 10 speed transmission that shifts like butter and is always in the right gear for the situation.  The Honda engineers performed a litte magic in that department.

So my next adventure is photographing the Sahleen Six Hours at The Glen at the end of June, followed by something very special at the Glen the weekend of July 9-11th.   The return of F1 cars of yore and assorted historic races.  I can't wait for that!    Watch for my photos after these two race weekends.

In the neantime, heres some pics of Alfa wheels compared to the Honda wheels on my new ride.  What do you think?    I personally like all of them.    Also- I'm posting a warm start video of my Alfa Romeo Quad with exhaust valves open.   Tun up the volume and get ready for racing..
