    Re: New Corvette C8 - mid-engine

    Looks like the designers spent a little time @ Pininfarina. That is one great looking car, I’ll be glad to age out before the internal combustion engine does.

    Re: Munich Hi-End 2019 Photos and Commentary

    Mike, if you find “Diesis” speakers, please take a moment to listen—horn with open baffle design. I heard them in NYC @ Bob’s Rhapsody location and was gobsmacked.
