So I'm somewhat sad today. I was driving home today and I saw a really nice looking C6 Corvette and my thought was, "man that looks old". Is it the C7 or simply that the C6 has bee around so long? Don't know. I've had such a strong desire for that ca for sooooo long. I started working on it in 2003 so maybe it's simply that it is 10 years old in my mind. Or maybe it's simply that the C7 looks so good????

:(

I would say it's a combo of the two..... You have been around the C6 for a long time and now the hot new C7 is out, It's not better it's just different.

I'd like to see Navy Blue Metallic from the 4th gen make a come back.

I started to really love the C6. I dreamed of owning a Jet Stream Blue or Black Z06 but I saw a pic of the C7 in front of the C6 and it made the C6 look ancient. It is still a nice looking car but I'm drooling over the C7 now. Especially in Laguna Blue. I'm really looking forward to the C7 Z06.

The new C7 will do that to you.

I'm at the V8s. A couple of race teams have invited me to stop by. Don't type too loud. I don't want to wake up just yet ;-)

So where are all of you.

WEEKEND WEATHER WARNING!!

Not to be a Donnie Downer, but I hope all our Mid-West HouZe-Sitters will be safe this weekend from the predicted potentially violent weather from OK North and East to MI...and if you are, that will be OK by ME!!

Be Safe!

Pete, hope you brushed up on your AUSSIE before you went to Austin, mate...

But I have a wager that I can do no worse than a tie with a devout Blackhawks fan.

So...I was off on a "field trip" the 2nd 1/2 of last week, in the wilds of Western Ontario prospecting for business associates for an upcoming Business Venture (details to follow, soon), when what to my wonderous eyes should appear but these delightful gen-you-wine C7 seats!! (sorry for pic quality, the phone was new to the snapper!)

Honest to Pete, Pete!

No, they aren't "hot". Yes, there's a receipt. Yes, there's obviously a "story". Yes, they're Brand New C7 seats...in fact, never installed...and never even sat on!! No, I don't think Local Chevrolet has a Part#...but we have the seats...

Tadge, can you get me the REST of the parts? Soon? Thanks in advance...
