THE BEAST, well not really as Caddy is the Original Beast, has returned.
It took much longer than is normal, but no expense was sparred, and patience was a must due to supply chain BS.
I am trying to get 500 miles on her for clutch break-in and to change engine, never a motor, oil, once done she gets a real tune, redline in 4th gear, and flex fuel tune.
She runs strong with drive-off tune at about 60% of power, but once tuned I need to work on a tire strategy.

This dove built her nest right outside my home office window, should be interesting to watch over the next couple of weeks.

Mourning Doves are easily spooked. They love to build nests in our hanging planters, but if we're too active they abandon the nest and leave the baby birdies to die.

Did not know that, I'll try to be careful the next few weeks.

Here is the Caddy, MOAB, mother of all beasts, she made it home in the past month after 12+months of geniuses giving up.
I think I have the misfire figured out, as old e85 in the tank is the first target, and I need to get a much better tuner.
The problem cannot be mechanical, as at 110K miles I replaced EVERYTHING.
When it is up and running, I will post up the 3rd gear burnouts, on e85 at the wheel is 750hp / 730tq.

And I may change one day, as the best Mopar Performance Shop is in Jensen Beach, about 1.5hrs from my house, I know the owner, have seen many of his project SUVs, they are all very beastly, and most would thrash cars at the same power levels.

Saw one of these about 9 months ago on 5th Ave in Naples, damn sweeeeet!!

This is an AI assisted 8 or 9 shot panorama of the Margerie Glacier at Glacier Bay in Alaska - the same glacier I posted earlier with the huge hunk of ice crashing into the water. When I processed this I was disappointed since everything above the rugged mountain on the far left was left out. I should have taken a second row of photos above these.
But Adobe just released a beta version of Photoshop that has a new AI feature called Generative Fill and I decided to try it out. I just used the crop tool to double the height of the panorama, selected the blank space and chose "Generative Fill". About 30 seconds later everything in the top half of the photo was generated by Photoshop.
So... it ain't real but the portion that was generated is very similar to some other photos from a similar angle that I found with google. It even generated 3 options to choose from and this looked the closest to what I remember.
It just got a lot harder to tell what is real... and a lot easier to mess with people online.

Yeah, I've done my part. Just a PSA. Not particularly interested in who is interested.
