    I took a couple black and white pictures of the Corvette because if you had of taken pictures of the car when it was new this is what they would have looked like. Sometimes it's hard to believe the car is nearly 50 years old and was built just a few month's after man first set foot on the moon. This car started to roll down the assembly line while NASA was trying to figure out how to get the Apollo 13 crew home alive.

    How often do you take it out?

    Not nearly as much as I used too... I put 500 miles on it this year, most of them going out to dinner on Saturday night.

    The first year I had the car I put 2000 miles on it. The yearly mileage has been steadily declining ever since to the point I've considered selling the car. But the car is really fun to drive. You can't stop for gas or walk out of a restaurant without attracting a small crowd. A 10 mile drive always yields at least a dozen thumbs up and another dozen honks or waves.

    My favorite was the time the wife and I were driving down State Street on a Saturday afternoon. This really hot 20-something chick driving a good looking lifted truck pulls up next to us at a stop light. The hotty leans out the drivers window and screams "I love your car, take me for a ride". At which point the wife turns to me and says "You never get to take this car out alone again"... LOL...

    The nice thing, is even if you aren't driving it it's not like it is losing any value. You can probably sell it today for more than you bought it for.

    We'll have to drive it up north sometime to one of the car shows you go to. Its' never traveled on a trailer, might as well enjoy it. Ya, it gets a few rock chips here and there, but it's worth it.

    If the sound of my Corvette wakes you up at 2:00 am.

    1. I'm really sorry.
    2. I'll tone it down.
    3. 1 and 2 are lies.
    4. I really don't care.

    I sold my Corvette last week. I put it up for sale on KSL for what I thought was a crazy amount of money and it was gone the same day. The first guy to come look at it walked into the garage, looked at the car and says "I'll take it". He never even drove the car. He handed me $500 and said he would be by in the morning with the rest of the money and to pick up the car. It was the simplist sale I've ever made.

    Last picture of the car I took before he drove it away...

    Damn - were you just fixing it up to sell it? I thought that was your baby.

    It's a great looking car for sure.

    Fixing them up is the fun part to me... I'll be getting another toy, not exactly sure what yet but I now have a wheelbarrow full of cash to work with.

    The wife wants a Viper GTS and I'm thinking a Z06 Corvette. If you don't know what a Z06 is Google them, they eat Ferrari's for lunch on a beer budget.

    That's a Z06 Corvette cop car... nice...

    Here are a couple of cars I'm looking at.. the first is a Viper GTS and the second is a Corvette Z06.

    Even better then being married to a hot young stripper wife is being married to one that appreciates hot cars...

    The wife wants a 650 hp 7th generation Z06 Corvette next....

    Meet my new toy... It's a 2011 Corvette, with only 24k miles. I pretty much stole this car as the guy was in a major bind and needed the cash by Saturday. The guy took the car to CarMax to wholesale it and when the CarMax guys turned their backs I told him I'd give him $500 more than CarMax offered. The guy was thrilled to make an extra $500 and I bought a car I could easily flip and make $3000 to $4000 on. CarMax was pretty much robbing the guy.

    Anyhoo... we decided to keep this car as our new toy. When you stand on the gas driving this car you had better make sure it's pointing in the correct direction because all hell breaks loose when it comes up on the cam at about 3,000 rpm. If you turn off the traction control it pretty much fries the tires anytime you stand on the loud pedal.

    Drop a gear and disappear....

    So I spent the past week bringing this bad boy up to Ice standards. First thing was to detail the entire car and engine bay.

    Then the real fun started... I added a Mild to Wild exhaust system, Air Raid cold air induction and a ZR1 wicker bill (spoiler).

    Next up will probably be reprogramming the ECM (Electronic Control Module) so I can remap the throttle to be more linear so I can steer the car easier with my right foot like God intended.

    This car is wicked fast :-)
