Start the thread "do you use C5 on the can?"

Facebooking is the king of the "posting while pooping" world but C5 is probably #2

See what I did there?

Enjoy your Vette. Sounds like you just aren't Camaro material - they are beautiful cars and I love mine!

Number 1 is understandable but numbers 2 and 3 make no sense to me.

Seriously, if you can't stand not being noticed driving your car, then you need to buy a Lamborghini or Ferarri.

Congrats on the Vette, for me it will be a 2016/17 vette and so far I have had no problem with my paint. In the end it all comes down to what makes you happy and what fits the budget for me.

For some reason I don't like seeing "pooping" and "make a sticky" used together.

Alright, you know nothing of law enforcement. Patrol level collects evidence. Detectives can not handle that unitl patrol collects it. Then it goes to lab. Then to detectives. It's called a chain of custody. Yes, we process prints when lab doesn't, and yes, we lab test DNA as well.

Quoted you above because this is how I feel about the Camaro community. So, it's alright for you to throw that out there, so I'm just using your own words to describe why I feel this way about the majority of 5th gen owners.

Eh, I officially don't care. I'm going outside to play.
LS2 vettes do not require premium gas. Rated 400 testing on 87. I used the 08 as a comparison. 07 and 06s are posting 12.3 to 12.5. 08s have seen 12 flat with a professional driver. I believe I saw 11.87 with one that only switched out the run flats on drag times.

You will get a garage like that one day and probably bigger and better. I need a bigger one personally right now. I did not say one was better than the other, I think they are both great GM sport cars and have always been a Camaro fan. Each car has a different feel and performance based on how they are designed. This is my first Corvette and probably not the last one. The Camaro is my second, the first one was a 67 SS and it was a great car too.

Why would you compare them to each other and why in the HELL would you ever say one is better then the other when they are totally different cars.

I disagree.
A uber small sample size of folks you saw pulled over and at a gathering doesn't represent "a majority of camaro owners". It represented folks at that gathering. Heck, this site doesn't represent a majority of camaro owners.

You're correct. p.320 says the old GM basic text saying to use 91 but you can use 87 with reduced performance and knock.
I used LS3 data.

Same.

On corvetteforum.com, over 65% of corvettes for sale are Z06s and they are in the $48-$60k range vs. $28k-$35kfor a 08. Dunno for a 07. At 500 hp, its for race enthusiasts so insurance is going to jump.
