  1. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    These so-called officials have been wrong almost every time. They predicted we would have millions of Americans dying; hasn't happened. They predicted corpses stacked in the streets; hasn't happened. The reason for lockdown, they said, was to prevent the hospitals being overloaded; that...
  2. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    Of course there are asymptomatic carriers. There are also loony people driving around out there who will shoot you because they think you are an invading Martian. Are we supposed to cower and avoid all risk in life? What kind of life is that? The entire "pandemic" has been blown out of...
  3. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    Please do some research with non-biased sources. The numbers of deaths have been artificially inflated: People who died of other complications, people well over 60, have been listed as COVID deaths if they merely tested positive. Nobody is saying that you should go out in public when you...
  4. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    Jeans don't stop f*rts, and masks don't stop viruses. This entire thing has been blown WAY out of proportion, don't you think? Barely 1% of the people who've contracted the thing have died; only about 1000 health-care workers world-wide have died; 98% of the people who do contract it have...
  5. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    A local small supermarket chain has posted a notice that "Patrons MUST wear masks while shopping." I ignored it, and nobody said a word. Nor was I the only customer sans a mask. If they insist -- I hear Costco is -- I'll say, "I can't wear a mask. Medical reasons." (If somebody asks, "What...
  6. Little things you like or love about your LaCrosse?

    I had the two peeling wheels repainted last week, which required me to leave the car off and rent something. What Enterprise gave me was a '19 Nissan Rogue, a fairly nice little SUV. The ride with the short wheelbase was kind of choppy; the 4-cyl. engine was peppy but noisy on acceleration...
  7. Coronavirus talk broken off from another discussion

    Speaking of movies and TV shows: Last week Heroes & Icons ran an episode of The Dead Zone from 2003. In case you don't know, this was a USA series from '02 to '07, taking the character of Johnny Smith from the Stephen King novel and the '80s movie and giving him a variety of new adventures...
  8. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    Wow, last post a month ago . . . I'm still working from home. My benighted state is proving itself to be a little less benighted than others; a lot of restrictions will be lifted tomorrow, our "I wish I wuz President" governor says, including those on barbershops. On Tuesday I've got an...
  9. Is there a gas pedal "adapter" for LaCrosse?

    The stock gas pedal for sure. The stock brake pedal is generally fine.
  10. Is there a gas pedal "adapter" for LaCrosse?

    Update, all, I bought the pedal kit from SuburbanAutoParts.com. It arrived yesterday, and I just sweated a pound off of my waist, it seemed, putting them on. The brake offered no problem removing the old rubber pedal and edging the new one on. The gas pedal was a kitty of another color. The...
  11. Discovered a non-ethanol gas station!

    Gassed up there again yesterday and got 22.8 mpg (the instrument readout said 23.9!). Pretty good since I'd only done about 257 miles in 14 days, a lot of short trips.
  12. Is there a gas pedal "adapter" for LaCrosse?

    Glad of the confirmation. If you have a LaCrosse with stock pedals, can you measure that? Or a Regal, I'd guess. If the sport pedals fit on both, the original pedals must be the same size.
  13. Is there a gas pedal "adapter" for LaCrosse?

    SuburbanAutoParts says they don't have the data, but another GM part site says that the go-pedal is 2.12" wide. My quick measurement of my stock LaCrosse pedal says it is a fraction over 2", but it's hard for me to tell how big that fraction is. Can anybody slap a tape measure on his stock...
  14. GM's brake and go-pedal covers

    Hello, all. Former Regal driver here from 2014-2019. Early in my time with the Regal I installed the GM brake and accelerator sport adapters or pedal covers: Buick Regal Pedal Covers - Genuine Buick Regal Accessories I want to add the same things to my current Buick LaCrosse. I like the...
  15. Discovered a non-ethanol gas station!

    A useful site! I drove by one of the listings on my side of the river, and there's no ethanol-free to be found, so I need to update that listing. By the way, I visited the mid-city station again today. The owner is working by himself, as he has had to "furlough" his employees. Gas was still...
  16. Is there a gas pedal "adapter" for LaCrosse?

    BuickGirl, as I recall it was something like a door wedge, but a bit wider! Somebody on Youtube has posted a video of himself taking a regular solid rubber door wedge, drilling two holes in it and his gas pedal cover, and fastening the wedge atop the pedal. I'm not short and don't really need...
  17. Intermittent "Service Rear View Camera System"

    Since I picked up the LaCrosse last August, I've seen this twice, once late last year and again this morning. I have the car in R, of course, and the camera shows what's back there, with the addition of a black bar across the middle of the screen reading the text I quote above. I turn the car...
  18. Who is working from home that normally does not because of the Coronavirus

    You apply a thin metal blade, very sharp, to cut bristles that you don't want on your face and throat. Improves social acceptance and self-respect. Very retro.
