  1. Not sure if it is completely unexpected, given the uncertainty of the current environment, but the Charlotte Checkers (AHL affiliate of the Florida Panthers) have decided to opt out of the 2020/2021 season based on "safety and logistical concerns related to the COVID-19 panemnic. Here' s the link from the Observer. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nhl/charlotte-checkers/article248269275.html
  2. As the resident car nerd, you should know better than to dismiss the cooperative efforts of BMW & Toyota as simple "badge engineering". This has the potential to be significant for both brands with more projects and sharing of technology on the horizon. https://www.drive.com.au/news/bmw-wants-to-strengthen-bond-with-toyota-124587
  3. All Charlotte locations of B. Good will permanently close, along with the Raleigh and Fayetteville ones. I did notice the one in Durham was closed when I was there on business a few weeks ago... https://www.charlotteobserver.com/charlottefive/c5-around-town/c5-development/article243806567.html
  4. We keep our 1970 Thunderbird at the AutoBarn, and there are a LOT of amazing cars there - a mix of consigned cars for sale, as well as storage for owners cars. I park in the "back room" which holds some real treasures - Tom Cotter (The Barn Find Hunter himself) stores some of his cars there as well, and I have been lucky to strike up a friendship with him. He's been paring his collection down recently and sold the car I have spent hours drooling over - a 1 of 1 1967 Ford Country Squire. I still miss seeing her in all her glory... https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1967-ford-country-squ
  5. I need to post some pics of the other participants but there has been an "Invisible Heroes" cruise on the 485 loop the past 4 or 5 weeks. We have been cruising with the group the last 3 weeks. There have been some amazing cars including the 1966 GT40 that won LeMans (the actual car, not the replica from Ford vs. Ferrari), a 1928 Bentley 4 1/2 Liter, two 1965 289 Cobras, a GT350H "Rent a Racer in Wimbledon White (one of 50 in that color), and many Porsches etc. We have alternated between our 1970 Thunderbird Landau Sedan and our 1990 35th Anniversary Thunderbird Super Coupe.

  6. As my late dad was fond of saying "I bet that fixed his wagon".
  7. Us too. Looking forward to a wild ride!
  8. Took a few pics of this recently. 1st one is from ASG weekend and the last one is from Saturday after the Wake Forest/Furman game. My teen son got a job working in the visitors clubhouse at BB&T, so this project is rising right in front of the door he uses to get into the ballpark, so he will have a cool perspective.
  9. Haven’t posted in ages, but need to get back “in the game”. My son got a new job working in the visitors clubhouse at BB&T, and I took this after Fuman lost to Wake Forest on Saturday. Hope it is an acceptable return to a GREAT forum.
  10. If my mother-in-law said one more time that a funnel cake would hit the spot while watching the fireworks... So yeah - more food trucks around the park (in general) would be a bonus. I know there were a few around the time of the grand opening, and we do spy Mr. Softee down there occasionally, but not nearly enough. Also I am unsure of how long the Fuzzy Peach will last in the stadium. I suspect gameday traffic isn't too bad, but when the Knights are out of town or during the off-season, that will be a tough road for sure.
  11. We watched the show from my office, which overlooks the park and the stadium. Has anyone seen (or is anyonw willing to guess) how many people were in the immediate area for the show? The park was packed for sure - but how successful was it? Would love to know...
  12. That is pretty solid! Maybe they can channel that into an expanded space behing the Latta Arcade, unless the new buidling there won't allow for that. Thanks for sharing!
