Love Corvettes, hope to get my first when I pay my SS off. Looks like you have done a great job, can't wait to see what engine mods and dressup you get done over time

Love Camaros, hope to get my first when I can pay for one. Thank you, added a mod list to the top of the thread.

Just removed the windshield washer tank and the hoses along with it I don't expect huge improvements I know. But Doc has shown any weight makes a difference. I'd love to get my Corvette down around 3060 what I hypothesized last night.

Pretty good, that something I could never draw correctly is a car. Jets I could do. Cars.....not so much.

Maybe a C4 might be more up your alley. They have more straight angles close to a jet than does a Camaro, C1,C2,C3,C5,C6? Just my thoughts

Does anyone think it would look pretty cool to have a ZL1 shift boot in my Corvette? Might be worth the 62 bucks... I can't find anything of the same quality.

I just washed and waxed Nicky again, cleaned out the garage of winter debris and fixed the Explorer's nonlocking driver door

Congrats man. I almost pulled the trigger on a car just like that when I was 16....color and all. Dad wouldn't budge saying it was too fast. Glad to see you taking care of it like that. Welcome to the family....Kenneth

If I asked my dad he wouldn't budge either It's in my mom's name and her and her husband were all for getting into a cool car club, learning more, and have a good time.

If I seen my son being that responsible about maintenance and care I would have to say on!

It took me until 27 to get my current ss. Your leaps and bounds ahead already. Stay safe and give em hell.

I expect to keep my car and get an SS around 26,27 Depending on if I like the 6th Gen Camaro. It'll be a pretty good debate
