11 = 2 + 9

Today’s date, November 29, can–of course–be written as 11/29. A manifestation of my math inclination/OCD combination is that a date like today’s “makes me happy” because the month equals the sum of the day’s digits. That’s just how my brain works, or doesn’t.

******************

My sweet sister and (i)ncomparable niece left today after a week’s visit. That week went quite quickly. Welcome to life over 60.

We were very glad to spend the time with them and to be able to “celebrate ” Thanksgiving although much angst remains in the family. The less said about that, the better.

******************

Cars A To Z will continue with a post this week, the “H” car. I am not sure, however, what day it will be written. The posts are not being written as frequently as I had hoped.

The mad dash to EVs is leaving me with much less material for the blog. I remain convinced that the EV zealots, like all zealots, are dealing in unreality, if that’s a word. As some Formula One drivers and team leaders think synthetic fuels will be the real future of F1, I hope that will be true for the automobile industry as well. That could create quite the market opportunity for a brave and well-heeled entrepreneur. In the meantime, I am still hoping for an in-person look at one of these cars, although it’s now likely that won’t happen until the new year.

 

See the source image

 

This is the Maserati MC20. You see, a mid-engine car does not have to have an ungainly rear perspective.

The MC20 will be powered by a Maserati designed and built twin-turbo V6 of 3 liters displacement producing 621 HP/538 LB-FT of torque. The reason this car wasn’t a part of Ultimate Garage 3.0 is that it does not yet exist in that none have been delivered to customers. I think it’s an amazing design.

See you later…
