    Gnil:

    Full of muscles to be able to keep steady in the freezing and strong water streams ! Spring is lovely. Green everywhere. Nature only has a few month to grow, flower and go back under the snow. Everything is accelerated. 

    Yes, it's booming with energy in plants and water flow!  

    And finally Ford found enough energy to get the 2021 Raptor ready to build - I built it today - ONLY $83,655!!! - , we'll not expect before the Roma eternally stuck on the ocean...

    Just what this cripple needs to get even more WAY BACK INkiss

    But Sun Ra - with all the status and power conferred upon her as Lead Bitch - spat and pissed that the 2021 Raptor still only has 450 HP, and refuses to be impressed until the Raptor R arrives, by just some suspension tweaks.sad

    So she ordered the TRX to get us by as our Lead Truck, demanding that the new Raptor just replace the 2020 as WAY BACK UP truck...  so tonight she built:

    AND NOTE BENE:  beside that drool inducing addictive power advantage, the TRX is 8" NARROWER than the Raptor expanding our horizons and reducing our future Idaho Pinstripe damageskiss


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Love the Ford but the Ram takes the cake with that motor. 8" narrower in your neck of the woods is also a big pluswink


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Cooler heads have prevailed - BoomBoom pointed out we already had the 21 Raptor - it's called the 20 Raptor and that Sun Ra was right:  why beat the sh.t out of the same truck twice with 2 depreciation curves instead of one? And Sir Cosmic Messenger said he'd miss the mud he'd built up in the passenger seat, and would have to start all over again.

    And my excellent and ethical dealer committed my R to me even dropping the 21 order.  

    Sabre meanwhile, schmoozed a rig out of the owner's daughter at the Dodge Dealer, and presented some recreational alternatives, that while inappropriate for spinal patients fused crotch to neck, are highly amusing for Labrador Retriever puppies:

    The Crewe surmises 21 Raptor sales will be weak, why change rigs for a few suspension bits?

    And we all truly need, want and must have, as Rhino points out,  a 700 hp off-road rig asap [8-10 weeks]smiley

    Haha, yes Enmanuel, nothing better than old friends....

    Being reminded by Her Spire of My Girl. -- One compelling thing about Seneca was her command of higher math.  She aced Calculus 400 at Stanford, and found complex functions like Green's a playground.  

    She delighted in Poisson distributions particularly.  Building these random distributions per:

    \!f(k; \lambda)= \Pr(X{=}k)= \frac{\lambda^k e^{-\lambda}}{k!},

    Rather than just retrieving back to Daddy, she built the distribution -  since she knew he struggled at Calc 300 and 400 at Cornell:  Haha Daddy, do your homework!!!!heart

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    As Enmanuel has pointed, the designs of Nature are mind blowing [Fractal surfaces] unimaginable in detail.  Perhaps Seneca, the imaginary mathematician could generate this formulaically.  It's not just Her Spire, Her Memory,

    They are slowely populating the streets of Zurich, it is really a great looking car with a lot of presence but an elegant design.

    Congrats on the addition, the dark blue suits the car very well.

    Looking at it, looking at the Portofino, I still having a hard time picking the Roma over the Portofino.

    Either one is a winning choice.

    Whoopsy:

    Looking at it, looking at the Portofino, I still having a hard time picking the Roma over the Portofino.

    They do look similarly successful as designs?

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    The Portofino, kinda good looking at its presentation, now already looks like a dated car.

    The Roma is the best design exercise that has come from Ferrari in house team since they parted ways with Pinifarina (not difficult though).


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Looking at the Portofino, dare I say it reminds me of 1960s Ferrari convertible, 250 California. But modernized with sharper lines.

    The Roma on the other hand might have a hint of 275 with the extra short deck and extra long hood. Mixed in with some Aston Martin Vantage and turned into Admiral Ackbar, with the headlights pointing sideways out instead of straight ahead.

    I loved the modern interior of the Roma over the dated Portofino however.

    There's enough differentiation to appeal to a multitude of driving enthusiasts and many would not refuse either Ferrari for inclusion in their garage.  However, one would prefer the Roma over the Portofino because it is a closed coupé and more usable at one of the local tracks.
