Pete, your "observations" match my "perception" of what contacts have "hinted/suggested/[fill in blanks]"...

The hood deal may just be a poor-fitting one-off pilot-piece...or...??

Wixom needs "help"...we've covered that, and Corvette's flatline emphasizes that...

4199 freakin' pounds for the ZL1?! What I suspected, but kinda disappointing at the same time...after "assurances" by some, and "flames" from others, at suggesting such "heresy" as a possible-4200 lb. result, loaded...

I'd say the "case" for a mid-$40s (priced 'tween the now-inevitable mid-$50s ZL1 and 2SS), well under-4,000 lb., with LS7 motor-vation and BOSS-bashing reflexes is stronger than ever...

But, again, what do I know?

Stay tuned...we're passing the "summer of discontent"...no likely signs of a fall harvest...we NEED a winter planting for spring blossoms and summer growth!!

How metaphoric...as opposed to EUPHORIC...

EDIT:

There's at least as much "room to grow" with a 505 hp LS7 as there is with a 426 hp LS3... "Maxed" at 505? Not hardly...
