    First drive of spring - post yours too!

    For those of us high enough in latitude for this to even make sense, many have been having their first sports car drives of 2021 in the past weeks.  RC posted one in his EVO thread, so I thought this post could be a celebration of warm weather and fun cars. 

    In our case, a first 2021 drive of a 300km loop from home, criss-crossing the major river here, past still-frozen lakes, and a small hydro power plant at a dam.  No green yet, that is still a couple of weeks away, but 16C is fine for summer Michelins....

    For any feeling left out because you live in summer all year long (indecision), or our Aussies for whom it is autumn, feel free to substitute your own milestones....

    Nice 4trac kiss I already posted one in the GT4 thread, but here are a few more. From Route Col du Pillon towards Montreux and frost this morning. Spring is here but winter tires still recommended indecision

    Here you go. Steering box needs some adjustment and I will have the California style bumper guards removed but a great way to start the driving season...

    Great photos guys. Indeed spring has been very limited until now, here's to many, many more.

    Not a pic, but a video of a cold start of my GT4. Car has headers but factory mufflers. Will put the summer wheels on and take it out this weekend, most likely.

    (This is LaSalle St. in Chicago, the heart of the business district.  Also recognizable from many movies including Batman and various gangster films.)

    Have not been back in Chicago for over a year and have little desire to return.  The criminal element has taken over many parts of the City and I expect more and more social unrest in with the pending release of the CPD shooting of Toledo, the thirteen year old boy, and the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial.  Media, once again, is disingenuous in its coverage as it focuses on a handful of soundbites that distort the trial.  While jury decisions are notoriously difficult to predict, the state has not proven its case for murder beyond a reasonable doubt.  Even lesser charges are difficult to meet as many of the state experts are more beneficial to the defense's case.  


    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    The media is making a big mistake by not preparing the public for a not guilty verdict. This is always a good practice but in this case the prosecution is not going to win.  Eating a fatal does of fentanyl is plenty of reasonable doubt. 


    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    The top source of unbiased coverage of the Chauvin trial is Legal Insurrection with Andrew Branca.  https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/04/chauvin-trial-day-9-wrap-up-medical-experts-resuscitate-prosecution-case/ 

    Branca, unfortunately, was not able to follow yesterday's proceedings live so he is behind with Day 10's analysis.  Legal Insurrection's founder, Bill Jacobson, provided live blogging yesterday.  https://legalinsurrection.com/2021/04/chauvin-trial-day-9-wrap-up-medical-experts-resuscitate-prosecution-case/ 

    I have zero respect for Big Media.  It is propaganda versus investigation and reporting.  Sharyl Attkinson's book Slanted does an admirable effort of portraying the issues and bias of Big Media.

     


    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    While it’s true that the majority of cases brought against police officers in misconduct cases are dismissed by jurors, this one is different. Chauvin will be found guilty on one of the charges. The testimony against him has been devastating. 
     

    The only defense he has is the cause of dead is not related to the misconduct of Chauvin. That will be huge mountain to climb in light of all the medical testimony saying otherwise. 
     

    My guess is they will  find him guilty on one of the manslaughter charges. If he’s sent to prison, his life is over. The prison population will have a field day with him.

    Re: First drive of spring - post yours too!

    How closely have you followed the testimony?  You seem to base your statements solely on what is reported in mainstream media, which is duplicitous.  Read the Legal Insurrection articles.  You possess the legal horsepower to follow Branca and Jacobson.

    Great pics and beautiful car. When my son got his license I did the same and I have to admit that it felt like driving in a Tesla with Autopilot on. After a lot of practice and coaching he now drives the RS on track, which in the beginning was yet another level of "fear" :)
