The US maximum is 92 octane and we have 10% ethanol.

Picture also the speed of Sarti catching everyone miraculously starting late, (jet-mode)? and Barlini in the other Ferrari getting a mere 7-8 seconds ahead of the chasing pack.

The garden has no off-switch this time of year! It will be 83F (28C) this Sunday (Mother's Day).
Watching Graham Hill in the film he said nothing just murmurs and expressions..it's as if JF thought he had the 'wrong' accent.

Now, I DID NOT expect to see my Belgium and UK friends posting about CCR....they were a very influential band in my life....here's why:

The US mandated a draft of all 18 yr olds to "join" the military....I was a 2H exempt status due to my full time college student status....as the Vietnam war escalated in the early 70's, the exemption was taken away and they replaced it with a "draft lottery" based upon your birthday....the numbering system ranged from 1 - 365....they began drafting at 1 and kept going....based upon my birth date, my lottery number was 112....as I watched the lottery grow into the 70's and then 80's and then 90's and then it broke 100, it became evident my full time college status would not prevent me from being drafted....I knew several friends and acquaintances that went to Vietnam....some never returned except in a body bag and others returned and were warped from the horror of this war; I purposed in my heart that I WOULD NOT GO TO VIETNAM....and made a conscious decision that if I was drafted, I would immediately leave San Diego and head for the Canadian border....never to return to the US; fortunately, the lottery stopped and I was able to graduate from college and remain in San Diego.



Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Ooh, they're red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the chief"
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no
Some folks inherit star spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer "More! More! More!" yoh
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, one
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no

It was indeed extremely fortuitous for you that the lottery stopped before you started packing for Canada.
Cassius Clay the ex boxer was ordered to go to Vietnam and he cited he was a minister and a conscientious objector to the war. After he was convicted to 5 years in prison the Supreme Court acquitted him on human grounds and after more various too-ing and fro-ing and a decision of one person overnight he was finally let off.

Didn't think of this - it must be the exact dimension (or less)....keep rebuilding and upgrading the current car!

My friend , while I was reading your story .I was like...."Lost in words" !
I didn't knew about the "Lottery" and lottery numbers ..."WOW" Imagine , Crazy ?!?!
I watched I don't know how much movies (lost count) about the Vietnam (nam) war ...Regarding this war .The last movies that I watched was "Hacksaw Ridge" and "Danger Close" (2019)
And of course also lots of documentaries ...

Damn ....Jesus Christ !

One thing is for sure , it was horror ! And for what ? So many deaths for nothing ....All these body bags covered in the US flag and the shock for the families !
The only thing about your situation that I can imagine and feel ..Is the tension and stress of that lottery . It must have been terrible for you !

I'm very glad to hear that you could avoid this war . My friend you was "VERY" ...Very lucky !
Thank God ! Bless you my friend !!!

For all the American families who lost their son/s there...
Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad ?....May they "RIP"

Apocalypse Now was as crazy as you could get directed by F F Coppola with Willard played by Sheen sent to terminate the crazed Kurtz played by Brando, a rebel special forces officer accused of murder.
Sheen nearly died of a heart attack while it was being filmed.

And of course also lots of documentaries ...

Damn ....Jesus Christ !

One thing is for sure , it was horror ! And for what ? So many deaths for nothing ....All these body bags covered in the US flag and the shock for the families !
The only thing about your situation that I can imagine and feel ..Is the tension and stress of that lottery . It must have been terrible for you !

I'm very glad to hear that you could avoid this war . My friend you was "VERY" ...Very lucky !
Thank God ! Bless you my friend !!!

For all the American families who lost their son/s there...
Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad ?....May they "RIP"

Thank you - it was such a horrible time. The most absurd and terrible audio of all was of Richard Nixon, US President at the time, stating to another cabinet member to "keep the body bags coming until November of next year when I'm re-elected....and then I'll stop the war then and the American public will see me as a hero".

This seems impossible, but Nixon actually thought it a good idea to audio tape ALL of his conversations while in the White House, thinking his words would absolve or substantiate why he made some of his decisions....the CNN video series entitled Tricky Dick was simply incredible -
