Hey guys, Aguilar reports in the corvette forum that he gets his full synthetic Mobil 1 5W30 oil by the case for $26 at Costco. That's for 6 qts. That's about $4.33 a qt. It's about $9.50/qt at Autozone. You might want to consider getting your oil at Costco.

I don't know if Costco sells Dex-cool antifreeze, but Camaro owner's manual recommends flushing your antifreeze once every 5 years.

I think Costco is located over there sort of close to Viva Chevrolet. Kind of that same area.

I don't think Las Cruces has a Costco. I could be wrong on that.

Hey everyone! Sorry I have been AWOL. The working thing has been kicking my butt. Finally finished the house remodeling so looking forward to some Camaro time.
Anyone hitting the strip latey?
Ordered a new Vette looking forward museum delivery in March.

Who did you order it from? I didn't have any luck with Viva. I've ordered mine from Mike Furman @ Criswell up in Maryland. Hope to have it drop shipped to Viva. Hoping for Jan arrival.

I struck out at Mission as well. I guess El Paso just does not sell enough new Vettes to get in on the first allotment. I went to Classic in Dallas, they had a total of around 100, I am number 40. They ranked buyers by how many cars each customer had bought in the last 10 years.
Another note; I don't know about the others but Mission will not have a certified mechanic for the C7. I am hoping this will not make warranty work difficult.

I went factory pickup, because my Camaro was a preorder and got lost for three weeks on the rail. Also could not pass up the chance to see the factory.

We stopped by the Corvette museum on our way back from camaro fest last year. That place was awesome, almost couldn't pass up the 60th anniversary vette they had for sale. Loved the look of the white with silver stripes paired with the LS7.

Hey guys & gals, I'll be moving to El Paso in about a month and I look forward to meeting you guys. I've been in Arizona for the past 4 years and its time to come back home.
I drive a 2011 2SS with a few mods and I love to drag race so I'll be at the track a bunch. As some of you may know, they recently closed Firebird and Speedworld and that's where I used to race so I haven't been to a track since December.
I recently dropped a big stick into my motor as well as a Circle D converter and the car feels fast but the track is the real place to find out what it really runs.

Here's a couple of pics.

Thanks guys. I need to get a new diff side flange for my car, the bolts got loose and ruined the threads. If I can get the parts in time for Friday I will try to make it. If not I guess I may just try to show up and say hello to everyone.

Welcome, sucks to hear they closed down Firebird though, I loved that track. Hope to see you around soon, hopefully I can get down to the track more this year.

Please be sure to let me know if you're planning on co,ing Sat to Farley's at 3pm. So I can make sure the management has a big enough area blocked off in the parking lot and for tables.
