Thanks... and yes we will still have the same matching plates... 2010ABM has first dibs on them if I ever give them up...
Bring your jack and run some back to backs within the DRs and the OEM GYs. I'll betcha 25 cents the DRs and GYs are within a 10th.

Ha Ha... that is TOO FUNNY...... I'm on your side now with all the ****y guys...

I'll need some lessons before I can become a Jedi Master though... this no lift shift and 6 freakin gears has me all screwed up. Not to mention skip shift... none of which I have experienced yet due to proper break in... What happened to the 4 speed stuff... much easier not to miss a gear.

True I was a both ways kinda guy, but now I'm there those Auto guys are just sissies who are skeerd to row the gears...

And this cannot be confused with the CIRCLE or TRUST... once you're in that's it.

We'll have to have a board of directors meeting.

This is the first manual that has been introduced into the circle.

Of course, being a founding member you will get your earned vote.

But the added members last year Owen might not be so forgiving.

You've still got a 4 speed, just learn to use them the way GM intended...1 > 4 > 5 > 6.

1 - Watch me kick your a$$ off the line...
4 - Top gear for the standing 1/2 mile run...
5 - Top gear for the standing mile run...
6 - Cruising on the freeway because I bought this car to care about MPGs...

Let's see... upper/lower pullys, cam, springs, headers, ADM intake, porting and a few other goodies. I took a ride and O M G was that thing fast... and pulled that turn down by his shop at 60... he said it handles better than his ZO6. It will be on the track in two weeks after we get through with all these car shows. Then it goes back under the knife for a 4L80 and get it to the 9's

And yes the SIM car is still running 9's. He put a ZL1 dash and Nav in it too. This LS7 is a solid car all the way around... has Pedders SuperCar Coilovers on it now.

Always fun stuff around here...
