Man, it felt tense when you drove free-way the first time and you had to carry your 14-year old cousin with you.

Btw, LBN, don't you have to have adult over 21 supervised you when you drive (meaning you can't drive alone)?

Yeah. Once I get my JOL (Junior Operator's License) the restriction goes away, but then I can't have any passengers except for family or drivers over 21 for six months.

Actually, kinda on the same topic, according to my grandfather (who worked at Du Pont for years), there was one chemist at Du Pont that was responsible for both the idea of putting lead into gasoline and also using Teflon as a non-stick coating. One man responsible for most of the harmful emissions in the world...
Hi LBN,

tetra-ethyl lead is only illegal to put into cars with no-lead or catalytic converters. The lead turns the converter into useless weight....

As for the lead I add it's in a "octane" booster for leaded engines. Maybe 1 - 3ml at the most. But it does work for my vintage car... When all of the sources for this chemical dry up, I'll have to put my 455 back in the car and burn more gasoline. Like twice as much - 8mpg to 17mpg now....

The motor isn't that powerful, but it does make the car go. Lots of torque and that's what makes a car "feel" like it's powerful... It's the torque that puts you back in the seat! Horsepower at high rpm's is great, if you have time to rev the motor and get the car moving.... I'll personally take 410 ft pounds of torque at 2,800 rpm over the same amount at 3,600 rpm. 2,800 rpm is just above freeway speed for me. The car runs 2,500rpm at 75 mph. So when I hit the gas pedal it moves... No waiting for the supercharger or turbo to kick in.

As for the emissions... Propellants of old were a major cause of that as well. In the "old" days, most aerosol cans had other types of propellants (MeCl and 111 tri to name a couple) and even today CO2 is a large one being used....

The real cause of today's pollution, population increase in countries that don't have environmental laws. Beijing for example is really worried about air quality and the athletes for the upcoming Olympics. The air quality there is 10 times worse than Los Angeles today... They would have Stage 2 or Stage 3 smog alerts almost every day there right now...

Well enough of that noise... I'm not a tree hugger by any means, but that's my two cents on things...

Take care and good luck driving those "Expressways"... They can get scary at first!

Take care, :-)

Well, I'm officially a man with a permit. I got it yesterday, and went out driving in the late afternoon. When you first get behind the wheel, 15 MPH feels really fast.

Hi LBN,

Yeah that first ride by Yourself is a real hoot! You feel free, but so afraid of making a mistake or going to fast and trying to remember everything your parents told you or the driving instructor. Those feeling will pass the more you drive.
Hopefully, you never get too over confident, because that will spell trouble in the form of an accident. Just when you thought you had it figured out, something or somebody will get in the way....

Good luck with your new found freedom and use it wisely. :-)

Yeah, that is rather odd. I haven't seen HVAC at all since the last time he posted in the thread. Cappy is out there from time to time.

But yeah, I won't get too confident in Massachusetts (comes with the territory).

I've just seen Knocked Up. Aside from all the bad language and whatnot, it's a great comedy that filled with utter most meaningful idea. I like these kind of comedy, followed up is Click. They teach something about family you know, those very simple things about family you know, that we just take them for granted everyday.

Hi LBN,

Maybe cappy is spending more time at the beach or work?? You just never know... He's got a folding rig going though...

As for HVAC. He's got his own business and I'm guessing with all of these high temps in the mid-west he's real busy trying to keep people cool!! He's been very consistent folding with his rig.... I was just curious if I missed a post or something.

Yeah I imagine that driving in Mass. is a lot like driving in LA... Lots of cars, many, many people in a big hurry to get from here to there... Even though it would only take about 2 or 3 hours to get out of the State, right??

Well take care and enjoy the day, :-) Oh and Fold On!
