Northeast Florida is growing by leaps and bounds. Fortunately the highway planers were ready for it. Forty years ago I-295 was built as a four lane connector between I-95 and I-10. Now it's six lanes and work crews are clearing the trees that have grownup on the extra ROW purchased back then to add four more lanes. No houses have to be moved because this widening was planed for.
The two lane road between my town and St. Augustine was widened to four lanes ten years ago with extra land purchased for extra widening later. Most of it was farm land and the few people who lost houses along the route got enough money to build nice brick homes on the backside of the land they had left. Florida doesn't have to deal with freezes and road builders know that tourist and tractor trailers keep the state going and construct roads suitable for both. Some parts of I-4 through Orlando are getting a little rough I'm sure there is a plan to fix that.
Never let the truth get in the way if you are a Liberal.
Maybe I'm wrong but I though an internal combustion engine was basically an air pump. Getting the air in and out in an efficient manner produced more power. I flipped the air cleaner cover on my 68 327 Impala because it allowed more air to the air cleaner than the one and a quarter inch hole on the side snout. It had nothing to do with the sweet moan from the spread bore carburetor at full throttle.
One of the best sounding exhaust I ever heard was on a ten wheel flat bed truck with a big block V-8. The owner had simply welded a three ft section of six inch black pipe to each exhaust pipe in place of a traditional muffler.
My wife just started nursing school. Tonight she is going to practice doing a bed bath on me. I hope she wears her naughty nurse outfit
She has been helping take care of her invalid mother for almost ten years so she knows how. She just needs a male patient and figured I would enjoy it. Out of the fifteen students in her class, one is male.
