    That says a lot more about them than him, and not good things.

    Just watched the first few minutes and I don't think he has a tour on his build date yet as he was asking plant workers who follow his feed to see if they could get him in.

    I too will have to wait but getting the CFTP version with the painted on stripes will be worth waiting for. I will just be patient and stay active doing other things and enjoying the cars I have now during the fall and winter.

    I stopped watching YT videos where I don't recognize the person or organization that created the video. Burned too many times. I refuse to click, even when someone here links them.

    Hack: I hear ya but honestly, my beef is really with Google and YT, the content creators are just trying to do what this country is about...capitalism. I can't blame them for that even if their production knowledge is even less then their automobile knowledge. :-)

    V: I'm going to be afraid to call FP on Thursday this week after reading more and more about pushes. Hope we both hang on to what we have...ditto for the others in this basket.

    A lot of the guys are getting pushed from a week to a specific day, which is a good thing.

    Google and YT are also trying to make money, but those organizations provide a lot more benefit to me than some random YT content creator. I don't hold anything against YT for that. But if the content is garbage or there are too many ads I agree it's not worth watching. That's part of every business' struggle - balancing profit vs. providing value to the customer.

    Hack: I DO hear ya and while both G and YT are businesses, I do understand what THEY are doing. Problem is, I don't like it. For example, they've learned (mostly) that people will not watch a 15-second ad before a clip. So, what did they do? Put TWO 6-minute ads there instead. I now have to sit through at least one but if/when the second one starts, I bail and I hope others do as well.
