    Greetings all from Cary, North Carolina...long time owner of my Chili Red 2004 MCS, I "got my learning" on old Flathead Ford race engines. I'm getting ready to do a Supercharger maintenance along with adding several mods and figured I should introduce myself while I study the forums for tips and techniques...

    Like others I was on various other sites and have migrated here to Motoring Alliance. I'm also a long time member of the Tarheel Mini Motoring Club...with work and family commitments I have not been able to make many events, but hopefully that will improve in the coming year.

    Best Regards,
    Cliff Ward
    Cary, NC

    Welcome. South Carolina was number 3 on the list. NC was 7th... either way that's bad out of 50 for both states...

    As someone who lives in and does a lot of driving in NC, I'm surprised we're not lower on the list. In my part of the state there are a lot of poorly designed intersections and traffic lights are being replaced by traffic circles. Combine that with the decades behind road system in and around Charlotte(I77 for example), and the blame for our poor rating should be shared with the careless traffic engineers.
