While we're at it—ZR1 Centennial Edition page from the 2012 Corvette brochure with the redline cup wheels.

Good morning, all.

Marcus, there were cup wheels late in the C6 years. We have replica cup wheels on our 2012 that are slightly smaller versions of what you could get on a 2012 Z06 or ZR1.

Responding to Letty's question from yesterday:

"… how are you liking the InDesign CC?
I'm on the CC for my other programs, but for my ID I still use the old one, as thus far I am not having a good time with the CC in use of Photoshop and Illustrator. I've developed new cuss words as of late.
I do book layouts for the paper I used to work at and have found I'd rather stick to the old reliable when pressed for a deadline but I know I need to convert sooner or later. Thoughts?"

I find that keeping absolutely up-to-date all the time makes the transitions less painful because they're more incremental. Basically, Adobe is now doing revisions twice a year, and I'd say about half of those revisions are meaningful to me. So, in the last year, InDesign gave me better layout adjustment, visual font browsing, OpenType SVG font support, and endnotes—all of which I use.

But … two things: one is the eternal your mileage may vary—your usage may be such that you never use the new features and all the constant updates bring you is annoyance because Adobe does change and move things. The other thing is that its part of my job to always expose myself to the latest and greatest, ao I can justify some extra time mucking around with new features and capabilities.

There is a "big trip" planned for our 25th anniversary in April 2020. We’re going to drive the Great River Road—the succession of highways that follow the Mississippi River. We’ll head north, starting south of New Orleans and ending up west of Grand Rapids, MN.

My current estimate is 13 days/4,900 miles total, though I wouldn't be surprised if we added a few more days and 500 or so more miles.

It Was Five Years Ago Today

It is five years ago today that Ivelis and I began the trip that I would end up writing about in Lincoln Highway 101. In spite of our many preparations, both of us were quite aware that there were many unknowns, including whether we would even complete the trip successfully.

This situation was something that had not been true of our two previous “Big Trips” back and forth across the United States. The possibility of a catastrophic failure of some essential component of our 1985 Corvette was part of an honest and realistic assessment of our plans. A few of our friends heightened this awareness: they were quite enthused by our trip—until they figured out that we were driving it on our own.

Despite this concern, we hit the road with optimism. I’ll let the second edition of the book take it from here:

After a final check or two, we departed from our home in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Once we had traversed a few local roads, we drove up to New York City via first the Pennsylvania Turnpike and then the New Jersey Turnpike on what turned out to be a lovely spring afternoon—definitely a good sign at the start of this long and potentially fraught trip. As I had hoped, it was generally “smooth sailing” on this particular Saturday as we drove slightly over 100 miles. Ivelis and I encountered our only significant traffic issues during the day as we traversed the many merges (including The Helix—yes, a merge with an actual name) into the Lincoln Tunnel before it deposited us right into the center of Manhattan on West 38th Street.

From there, we drove along 42nd Street through Times Square itself toward our hotel. On our way through “The Crossroads of the World,” we passed a giant billboard advertising the (at that point) almost brand new 2014 Corvette Stingray—very cool and definitely another good omen. I would eagerly search for any positive indicator I could find throughout this trip.

On the tires - I've never been a fan of run flats, and here I drive mine all year and don't swap out winter tires for summer ones. I have the Nitto Invos now and love them except for the rain issues. I previously used Kumho Ecsta Supra SPTs on my other Vettes. I used Bridgestone, Michelins, Perelli, Goodyear, all those 'fancy' ones and kept coming back to the same old Kumhos that everyone made fun of me for. Then I started to see all those people start using them as well. Problem is, they don't offer a complete set for this car. The Goodyear and Firestone as well as Bridgestone I've used I didn't like. Lackluster grip, road noise, not good in rain, or just flat out didn't last well for the money they cost. I want to pay for a good tire not a good name.


Got it—I'll be interested in what you end up with, since we are clueless about non run-flats. The different front and rear tire sizes do substantially narrow our choices.

I was so ready to discuss shocks that I forgot to say good morning.

In the 40s and wet, wet, wet in the Philadelphia area. Starting to clear out at the University—only a week until commencement.

Bill, Ivelis and I send our best.

Letty, tires for our cars are non-trivial. Ivelis wanted to stay run-flat with our tires, so we've gone with first Michelins and than Bridgestones for the all-seasons. Both have met expectations. We keep the all-seasons on so long during the year that the original Goodyear summer fronts are still with us—Ivelis burned up the first set of rears a while ago.

Good morning, all.

I want to report that we had a successful stereo head unit upgrade to Louis, though I ended up having a pro do it. All-in cost was about $1,500 parts and labor to add somewhat better sound, CarPlay, and a backup camera. They did a beautiful job—the Kenwood Excelon looks like it has always been there.

Ivelis points out (correctly) that $1,500 is less than two months of payments on whatever the next Corvette is. So, if the fancy new telematics extend Louis' comfortable life for us by more than that, it's a win.

Happy Easter!

Beautiful today, which is unusual for Easter in the Philadelphia area—it's usually much nicer on Good Friday.

Plans: I'll cart the parents to and from church, than the family will gather at the ancestral Mulhern home (a large circa 1905 Craftsman) for Easter brunch. We'll likely drive the 1985 over, as it's Light Blue Metallic is an appropriate Easter color.

There's probably some more detail somewhere—maybe I'll fill it in later.

Good morning, all.

Had an actual tornado warning at 3:21 AM this morning, startling a sleepy Philadelphia area. No one hurt. With the hilly land around here, it's hard to tell the small tornados from the severe thunderstorms—the meteorologists argue endlessly over the distinction.

Despite being a former naval person, tanks have alway interested me—perhaps because of my paternal grandfather, who was a colonel in the army. As you know, they share a lot of nomenclature with warships: hull, turret, deck, etc. However, their history seems well-trodden, everything from the big cultural treatises, to the highly illustrated, to the country-specific, to the model-specific. I'm delusional enough to think I'll be better off if I "hit them where they ain't."

Congrats on your 24th Big John … living large is the best revenge …

Put me down for one the the books … might be your first presale … have you ever considered a digital format also?

Thank you, Marcus. Digital is tough for a book with as many images as I think I'm going to end up with.

Got back from our 24th wedding anniversary jaunt yesterday evening—we spent a few great days in Austin, TX.

Reached a decision on the Buick Riviera book. It's a go, though I'm still not what avenue I'll end up using to publish it.

CONGRATS ON THE ANNIVERSARY AND THE BOOK DECISION. GLAD YOU HAD FUN IN AUSTIN. AUSTIN, HOWEVER, LIKE DALLAS IS IN TEXAS BUT NOT TEXAS. IF YOU WANT A TASTE OF TEXAS GO TO FT WORTH OR "SAN ANTONE", THE UHR HOME OF TEX-MEX COOKING. A MOST DELICIOUS TOWN IT IS.

Thank you, Gris.

I've been to just about every city in Texas, the lady not so much—most of her experience has been the panhandle as we travel Route 66. We did consume many excellent meats while in Austin. We also made it out to the Texas Military Forces Museum at Camp Mabry—you know it's a big armor collection when they have not one but two M7 Priests.

Good morning, all.

Got back from our 24th wedding anniversary jaunt yesterday evening—we spent a few great days in Austin, TX.

Reached a decision on the Buick Riviera book. It's a go, though I'm still not what avenue I'll end up using to publish it.
