We should do another Mach-E Meet-Up! Hit the poll for your favorite date(s). Suggestions on where to meet up would be great. We have done Alice's in Woodside and Breajker's Cafe in Redwood City. How's the back parking lot at Ford Greenfield Labs in Palo Alto sound? Or something in Pacifica...
I woke up stupidly early this morning so I popped over to YouTube and watched the Historic Trans Am race from 2021 at Laguna Seca. It was kind of interesting to see Jim Farley was driving an orange Mustang fastback to the win. 😊🐩
Brief (maybe not so brief so TL;DR at the end) synopsis of my first HVBJB failure:
Note that my 2021 GT-PE is almost always in Unbridled, so that’s how I had the drive mode set.
Friday, August 18, 2023, started driving home from work. All appeared normal. The first street was a resident street...
Looks like Magic Docks have been installed in one location in Canada, eh: 😎🐩
WiTricity recently published an article comparing their modified MME's wireless charging to a J1772 L2 plug-in charge. 😊🐩
In the video, they do get an SVS notification on the dash, so I don't know if that's an issue related to the charge rate. 🤷♂️
In a nutshell, CA wants all new EVs sold in the state to have bi-directional charging in 2027. Could be an interesting change. 🤷♂️🐩

I talk a lot of smack about Kick to Open (KtO) not working very well on my car. Well, a few weeks ago a neighbor was talking to me about my car and asked if my car had KtO. I told him that it did and said it didn't work for crap. Of course, my car had to shave this Poodle's topknot. I kicked...
A friend invited me to go hunting tomorrow morning. I’m going to see how the MME fares with all of my junk in it. My biggest concern at the moment is possibly getting stuck. Next is the HVBJB. I will post back after I do the RT. 😊🐩
Today on the way back from work I stopped off at a store. I locked my car after I parked and went shopping. Walking back to my car, the lift gate opened when I was about 3 feet from the car. It's never done that before. Pretty sure the Kick to Open sensor didn't open it since I was pretty far...
This morning on the way to work an F150 cut me off. I was using Adaptive Cruise Control to maintain spacing and expected the car to slow down in order to maintain spacing. I had a fun surprise when the car throttled up and I had to hit the brakes in order to prevent rear-ending the F150. Once...
One of my cousins who has been a life-long Ford guy (he’s in his 60s) saw my MME for the first time today. He was really jazzed about the car. He recognized the nOtAmUsTaNG crowd and said that while they might have a point, he disagrees. He loved my car and thought it has a place. 😊🐩
I just walked through a parking lot where there is an EVSE at a handicapped space. The car parked there not only was an ICE car, it had no handicap placard or sticker or plate. 😱🐩
To top it all off, most of the lot was empty. Some people have nerve. 🤬🐩
I guess we missed a Spring meet-up. Anyone up for an end-of-summer meet-up (or maybe we should just forget end of summer and just do a Fall meet-up)? Anyone got a good location? Mid-morning seemed to work best for people in the past. Date/time suggestions? 😎🐩
New Poll! Breakers Cafe in Redwood...
