USF1 GP is confirmed for November 18, 2012. Woot! Second last race of the season, so we may very well see Vettel someone being crowned world champion! The change from June to November is great. Sure, it may rain and whatnot, but I'll take that over unbearable heat any day.

Any E9X guys and gals planning to attend? I'll be there pending unforeseen events!

My wife and I are planning to attend. We are tentatively canceling/re-arranging other vacation plans in order to do this. We went to the Grand Prix du Montreal in 2005 because we didn't want to go to Indianapolis. Turned out that was a great decision!

OMG, on Top Gear (US) the Caddi CTS-V Wagon beat a Ferrari California in a drag race. By a lot. That's insane.

Also, on at least speed level the Caddi CTS-V sedan is on the same level as the M5??? WTF

Wagons are sexy.

Totally agree. I'd pick Montreal over Indy any day for an F1 GP. Great choice!

I've been on the Montreal circuit for some curves in a tour bus...

I attended Interlagos F1 in '99, and the return of F1 to U.S. at the Indy circuit in 2000. Miss those days of the V10.

Not a ballah, but just ordered a '12 Ford Focus SE for the boys. Simple unencumbered with distractions and under powered (No sloppy 2nds for the boys either). There, I have done my part for the economy, an American NOT living on credit, pumping $$ into Detroit. Now I won't feel bad buying a German car after I retire.

a 'like' vehicle.

The Focus was on Motorweek last week. They touted it's European styling and German engineering. Nice car, I am sure your kids will love it.

Thanks! It was a consideration for a few months... Making it 'the same' as the German version really updates the look.

What they did previously just didn't make sense. The US version was FUGLY

Where were you when the towers were hit?

I had just gotten out of the shower after physical readiness training.

I knew then and there that the nation was going to war, and that I would become a part of history.

I was at work and we actually set up a TV watching this unfold. I remember thinking maybe this wasn't an accident after the first plane hit and unfortunately that was confirmed when the second plane hit. We were all huddled around a 13" TV in the conference room. Since I live in South Jersey many of my coworkers had family members who lived in North Jersey and New York and were frantically checking on them. Total shock and disbeleif that this could happen to America.

I remember every car proudly displaying an American flag for months after 9/11.

I was on Continental Flight 45 inbound from Milan, Italy to New York. We were diverted to Gander, Newfoundland where we sat in the plane on the tarmac for 23.5 hours after landing as they had to set up a makeshift customs and immigration point and process the passengers from 34 other widebody aircraft before they got to us. Ultimately we were bussed to Lewisporte, Newfoundland where the good folks of Lewisporte took care of the 'plane' people for 4 days before they opened up airspace again. Our first glimpse of what happened was on Wednesday (9/12) in the afternoon when we finally got to Lewisporte and the local cable company laid cable trunks into the church where we were staying.

The people of Lewisporte were the most generous helpful and wonderful people. Canada should be very proud of having them as their citizens because they truly set a shining example of bending over backwards to help in a time of need.

The same day I had began working on IPB products, Order of Battle products, and generating airfield assessments. Everyone immediately knew that we were orienting ourselves towards a war footing.

I was walking into my office building in Midtown Manhattan (Grand Central Terminal area) when my wife called me on my cell and told me that a plane had crashed into the WTC and that it was a terrorist attack.

I went up to the office and tried to get in touch with my staff, many of whom were on the way to work. When we determined everyone was OK we walked to my apartment on the Upper East Side. By that time both towers were down and you could see a huge cloud of smoke over lower Manhattan,
