To be fair, the Supra has a 2JZ and maintains much of its original form factor. This is still not as impressive as the fact that there are 8 second streetable (stock interior, exterior, and block) ones not requiring the owner to be an oil prince with a hired driver, though. » 10/22/14 5:26pm Wednesday 5:26pm

I wasn't very interested in corvettes until I drove an old one, and even then it was nearly impossible to get into gear or drive because I was used to newer cars and the gear oil was basically molasses. But it was all good fun, the challenge making things more interesting, and. I ended up with tons of respect for the… » 10/21/14 10:26pm Tuesday 10:26pm

The post in which I admit to being an unresourceful drama queen.

I had a revelation when I woke up this morning. What if... just what if the problem with the C4 feeling that it is down a couple of cylinders is because it really is? So I go down and pop the hood and, even in my morning haze, notice two scorched and cracked plug wires. It's now running like a few thousand bucks again. » 10/21/14 6:18pm Tuesday 6:18pm

Late 128i M-sport 6MT with some luxury packages. Revvy and ultra reliable NA I6, +30 MPG highway, relatively light weight and good handling combined with comfort. Basically as fun as an old car to drive while being really nice to use and dependable. » 10/20/14 10:23pm Monday 10:23pm

Dammit man, I just heard about this. It's really a massive shame to lose you, and it's disappointing that this is how things happen now. I think almost any Opponaut's going to miss your presence on here (haven't been able to yet due to inactivity) and it really won't be the same. This just sucks, and I hope to see… » 10/18/14 11:15pm 10/18/14 11:15pm

I visited my state capital for the first time today (potatodump)

Mine—if Northern VA can be considered as part of VA, of course. I really just wanted to see some cigarette headquarters (namely Altria because I'm a strange person), and I was not disappointed. Not only was the building's name a total lie, but it looked completely post-apocalyptic. It was covered in metal panels and… » 10/18/14 9:27pm 10/18/14 9:27pm

There's no real reason for disappointment either way, but unless you do autocross competitively there's no need for the extra fraction of a second. It's more a matter of what car there is the potential for getting a good deal on I think. » 10/18/14 4:03pm 10/18/14 4:03pm

Whelp, I've ruined the one thing I enjoy in my life.

I left the oil cap off the C4. It runs like shit now. Speaking of shit, I just stepped in two separate mounds of dog shit to make the day even better! Now my car gets to sit under a cover for a few years until my broke ass makes enough to buy a rebuilt engine. I'm even angrier at myself for ruining something… » 10/17/14 5:30pm 10/17/14 5:30pm

A 2013 6 speed Z51 would be the way to go for me if I had lots of money to spend on a weekend Corvette. Magnetic ride control, LS3, 0-60 in 3.9, and decent seats. White is definitely the color for a C6. The ZR1 is just so awesome, though. Cooler than the C7Z in my opinion—it was just so impressive when it came out… » 10/16/14 10:18pm 10/16/14 10:18pm
