But let me get serious for just a minute.

Recent events make it clear that our country is in serious trouble.

Serious Trouble.

Of the sort few could imagine last year as we played out what seems in retrospect to have been a really stupid political season.

But now we need stop beating up on each other and start working together to find our way out of this mess.

I will start by refraining from any further political ranting, raving or even just teasing on the OGTA thread.

I hope each of you in turn will also find ways to promote healing and help save our nation.

We are all better than what we've been.



On the other hand, I reserve the right to continue calling out turbos and FC's for what they are:

1) Hyper blown compensation for under powered units.

2) Over weight predecessors to the 4 door "sports car".

Respectively.
Emphasis mine. This belongs in the lounge.

This ain't politics Crit, this is the future of our planet.

The Lounge is a place for people who drink Martini's.

OGTA is a place for people who love 12A's.

Answer to the Pop Quiz:

E. The United States

One thought. This is totally just 12a here. But, if you're really that concerned about this planet stop driving a 12a... dirtiest engine ever besides a 13b... As for me "I love the smell of idimitsu in the morning"...

Yes, considering rotaries burn a line in the ozone layer everywhere you drive..

I second that though.. nothing like the smell of a premixed rotary on cold start first thing in the morning.

My V8-loving coworkers like to make fun of my car though.. saying it's a glorified snowmobile or it has the engine from a washing machine... they talk a lot of smack, yet none of their trucks or v8 sedans can hold a candle to my 1.3litres of fury :-P

Only second place?

The Donald wouldn't settle for that.

He has people who make sure he gets first.

seeing as how I expected nothing, and seeing as how my old 84 took 1st place (wide body) I'm ok with 2nd. Im still thinking you should buy a Prius since that 12a is causing such a dent in our ozone layer. Better yet a Flinstones car would be even better!!

Hardee har har.

All the 12A's in the Universe don't do as much damage to the ozone in a year as Trump's hot air creates in a day.

And Paul, you realize of course I'm just kidding you about your 2nd place finish.

In fact I think that SE of yours is absolutely beautiful and fantastic! Did your wide body really take 1st?

Tommy, SA stands for "SkyActiv" technology, a series of Mazda innovations based on the 12A concept.

Incidentally, my Mazda3 consistently brings 40 mpg, about that of a Prius at 1/2 the price, 2X the fun and no ozone damage.

Here's a wikileak:

It's his last post starting with "Hardee har har." I was paraphrasing what I read.

As much as a younger me would like to engage you Ray, the older me says resist. Too much kool-aid in your system to accomplish anything more than a perpetual argument. I think Crit had it right though.. the lounge is full of leftys and rightys to give you enough sugar to enhance your diet. I'm not biting that hook Ray, not even nibbling at it. Nice try. As for Nikki's? Not me. A pair of webers maybe or even a Holley or two but Nikki's are too passť for me. Fattened up=better but stock is just not enough juice. Had one, done that. Reliability? Without question.. performance? Not so much.

Well, for the record Paul, I've contributed more to OGTA and this thread over the last ten years than anyone else to make it interesting, provide useful information and keep it going.

More about Nikki's, Webers, Holleys, Del Hortos, SEs, FEs, FBs, SAs, Felix, Donny, the Lake House.

12As, 13Bs, one rotors, you name it, all documented with lots of pictures and lots of good natured conversation.

Have you ever heard of Goat Beer?

Trump is just the current topic of conversation and concern, we can all hope for better days.

Indeed, I've contributed literally thousands of times more than the Loud Few who would silence me, who drop in once in awhile because they need something.

I dare say, I'm keeping OGTA alive as we speak, although I'd have been content to let it die years ago.

But people keep clicking and commenting, it drives me nuts.

And for the record, Crit is NOT right.

Anybody is free to contribute anything they want to this thread, to click or not click, to comment freely.

In fact they are encouraged to do so, hopefully without criticism or personal attack.

This is what Makes OGTA Great.

Praise Trump or Trash him. Del Horto's? Well Nikki's are better.

Heck, you're even free to trash Nikki's, I won't tell you to take it to the Lounge.

After all, this is America, the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

Where Wankels roam and REPU's, though endangered, are not yet extinct.



But here's the problem.

Donald Trump is a serious threat to the welfare and survival of our country, the country I know and love.

And this bothers me deeply.

I realize my Republican friends may not want to hear about this fly in their ointment, but it's true.

The Dude needs to be impeached pronto before he destroys Everything.



You may have a different point of view; if so I'd be interested to learn and promise to be respectful.

Even Del Horto's have a place in this World.

But until the Mistake Called Trump is corrected, until the nearly daily barrage of insults to humanity end, until he's impeached, well I might need to say something...



Now let me offer a word of advice for those whose hair stiffens and whose feelings are bruised when they hear anything but Praise for Lord Trump:

I don't offer Trump criticism freely, only in response to fishing (if you don't believe me, review the record, I only respond to prompts).

So if you don't want to catch a Snapping Turtle, don't fish in my fishing hole.

Let's let others carry the thread for awhile, I'm sure OGTA will be better for it.

Ray, I'm not disputing your claims. I'm not refuting them either. We live in trying times. We've been here before and we will weather the storm. I've heard stellar comments about your contributions to this thread and I have gone back and read countless pages in order to better understand the mindset of OGTA'ers. None of this is in dispute. It's just that you hurl so much of the same thing constantly on this forum that frankly it just gets boring. I try to change the subject but to no avail. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood because my 7 is still on jackstands. The ultimate departure from any of this has been an evening drive to nowhere and now I can't do that till I get my radiator situation remedied. Yeah that's my excuse.. frustrated FB lover. I'm going to walk away from this thread for a while.. maybe it'll heal itself. While I'm gone try reading anything from Dr Judith Curry former chair of Georgia Tech School of Climatologists and recently resigned. She was a God of climatology till she questioned the "science" of current world held views. From Kyoto to Paris it's all been nothing about our atmosphere and all about new world order($$$$). I'm signing out for the duration. I've got parts all over the floor of my garage. When the big flash in the sky comes I hope to be revving 7000 and shifting into third. Till then "adios mr marose" (movie:"class")!!

I'm sorry Ray, but you seem to not be able to leave well enough alone. I've fought an unpopular war, despise politics and don't elect to engage on things outside of my control. I don't ever knowingly pick a fight with Dena at home because nothing good comes from it - who wants to fight? My only recourse is to block you here on the site. You also shouldn't decide to come to the lakehouse. You won't be welcome.

BTW, y'all don't let my personal foibles ruin a good thing. I'm fine, just turned on a filter.
