I sincerely appreciate the offer - and I'll keep it in mind - but there's nothing I need at the moment. Thanks again.

True enough. On the other hand, I live in an apartment - no garage - no yard - and no off street parking. Snow has been on the ground for a little over two weeks now. The prediction for yesterday evening - this morning was a sever winter storm with 2-3 inches. Which we seem to have escaped yet again with a dusting. It's 12:30 AM right now. TV and internet weather are still saying 30% chance of snow. But the temperature is 5F, so probably too cold for an appreciable amount.

Serious aero-mods are coming, but probably not until next May.

FWIW
  • ~5% of my highway miles are at 47-55 mph
  • ~40% of my highway miles are at 40-46 mph
  • ~55% of my highway miles are at 33-39 mph
