Welcome! :chevy:

Welcome. The c4's are fun machines for sure. It's nice to see that you get your hands dirty. You really enjoy the car that much more when you can say you've done work yourself. :thumbsup:

I'm sure I could swing the payments in about 5 years, I'll keep you all updated.

ParisTNDude 03-03-2012 09:44 PM

Yep, you'll find plenty of positive feedback by the Chevy fans on this site over almost any car with the bow tie on it....especially Vettes since they have always shared some of the same components. I've had 3 Vettes myself and just sold my 84...very nice cars. I'll have another some day.

GTAHVIT 03-03-2012 09:47 PM

Nicely done man!

:respekt:

Vette TPI 03-04-2012 10:41 AM

Thanks! Can't wait to get them. On another note, I got my certification from Drivesafe. Picture of the car cover on Nicky, and the dealership sent me a key chain and water bottle. :w00t:

Glad to see that you took driver training. Very few people your age (or any age) for that matter do. It means you take things seriously and that is the sign of a true car enthusiast.

Welcome to Camaro5 ! :)

Welcome to Camaro5 ! :)

I very well plan on being a true car enthusiast for the rest of my life. This was the first class I've taken. And I'm taking HS/College credits at my local community college for automotive basics. :chevy:
