You an buy 1LT Corvettes now a days with rebates for 39k. So if that is the case you can get a lot of mods on a Corvette too unless that is a 26k dollar exhaust system...LOL

I have had LPE cars in the past and think they are amazing though. So, I can understand why.

your a little off on the TT price I get the idea though.

Yes, a new Grand Sport and an Exhaust,
or an older Corvette with lots of really cool mods.

I finally paid off my 2005 corvette..
It became my deposit for the Camaro.

I didn't want to start at LPE with a used car...
It was a nice vette too.. I had a lot (8 or 9?) of them.
It was time for something different, and I can use the back seat for the 4 year old. I always liked Camaro's.. My first car was a '67 Z/28. Wish i still had that one.. sigh..!!
My little Kimberly likes daddy's Race Car.
I can hear her little voice now...Go faster daddy! ...faster! .....FASTER!

My own little cheering section at the racetrack!

What do you you mean had? Did you get rid of your LPE vette?

They pull the engine in the main shop, then send the underachiever over to the machine shop for an attitude adjustment. Should exit there as an overachieving bad-a$$ chomping at the bit to eat a few snakes.

If I remember an old article from last years SEMA builds right they pull the engine by droping out from underneath.

Damn, Windy now you have gone a given me the Suspension bug! Pesky thing is gnawing on me day and night. I know damn good and well if I scratch it things are going to get more expensive. I am thinking Pedders as well but I cant find anyone to buy the stuff from. I want to let LPE do the install while its there, any ideas? How about some pics from your trip?
Something about bad ass cars just does something for me, so get us some good pics!

I spoke with (and ordered from) DMS (Mike white - Marketing/sales).

Do a search for pedders.. his phone # is in a lot of threads in his sig.
I am sure Rob is o.k. too..

Wow, now things are happening, Mike from Pedders USA eamiled last night and seems eager to help, figures we caught him on vacation. I asked him to come up with a package for this build, lets see what he comes up with. I have heard nothing but good things about their products and think it will be a perfect match for the build.
