Monday Musings 66

Sorry, anti-vaxxers, but the vaccines work. Yesterday, Israel–which has fully vaccinated 81% of its over-16 population–lifted its mask mandates. Vaccine hesitancy is nothing more than a manifestation of ignorance. I’ll show this tweet from @DocBastard again:


-You do not know The Truth.

-You have not discovered things Doctors Don’t Tell You.

-You have not done research.

-You are not better than everyone else.

-You are not holistic.

-You are not special.

-You are not “woke.”


What you are is wrong.



I wanted to write about an amazing Studebaker Gran Turismo Hawk restomod being offered at the upcoming Mecum auction in Indianapolis. Of course, Mecum does not allow online pictures of current or recent lots to be captured, at least not in any way that I can figure out.

I searched for an analogue for the car, but could not find one that looked as good as the one in the Mecum photos and in Black over Red. Here is the link to the auction listing. Here is a picture of the best comp I could find although not in the proper colors:



Yep, that’s my model. Yep, right now I have GT Hawk on the brain. Can you say OCD?! In all seriousness, from the description the Mecum lot reads like the “perfect” car for me at this moment, but will probably hammer for way more than I would have considered spending, even if our three-car garage weren’t already full. As far as I can tell, the car is being sold with a reserve.


OK, this is a picture of my car:



What do you think of these C7 ZR1 wheels as a replacement?



OK, now I’m just looking for things to do to my car. Still, I really like these wheels more than the current ones and they would fit my Z06. Besides, by the time I’m done with mods later this year my car’s engine will have more HP and torque than a stock ZR1. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated.
