I take offense to your dismissal of all other C4s! Sure, the L98s never made huge horsepower, and the doug nash 4+3s didn't help very much in acceleration, but it doesn't make either of them bad. It's the combination used in the Callaway Sledgehammer, the fastest corvette to date. An '85 Z51 with a 4+3 will get to… » 8/01/14 11:34am 19 minutes ago

I almost made a really moronic move while driving today...

I'm generally an incredibly absent minded person to the point of making simple things difficult to get done, but when I drive I've always been focused to the point of being overly-tense. Today I pulled off from the highway onto a road that crosses it to turn around and thought "damn, this is a really sharp turn here… » 7/31/14 9:57pm Yesterday 9:57pm

I bought a cheap jack. (And other C4 Update stories)

It did jack shit aside from letting me screw up my rocker panel by being a moron. Couldn't get the stands under either because it couldn't hold the car up after a few inches despite being rated at 2 tons. So I'm halfway through the tuneup with a new distributor rotor and cap and spark plug wires, but fuel filter and… » 7/30/14 9:39pm Wednesday 9:39pm

If you slam it, your car will slowly be destroyed and will be miserable! It's a really clean Z32 with low miles, so I think having it be all-original would not only be cool but increase value. It's a decision you should make, though. Some good aftermarket wheels and tires along with a non-brotastic suspension setup… » 7/29/14 11:36pm Tuesday 11:36pm

GM can make a new GNX

Take the ATS coupe, make it less stylish with a more spartan interior. Only offer it in black and put a Buick badge on it. A tuned version of the CTS Vsport's V6 turbo, the Corvette's 7MT with a short final drive and long 7th gear for a high potential top speed. The top end punch of the V6 turbo combined with the… » 7/29/14 10:51pm Tuesday 10:51pm

I feel younger than I want to right now. The 2000's were definitely the best of times and the worst of times. Best because no responsibilities and worst because they kinda sucked as a decade. 2003 was the year my father traded in an old V6 5MT Accord for a Sebring... Yuck » 7/28/14 12:59am Monday 12:59am

I once had a similar problem when Victorious Secret and Hardibro got into it on Oppo. I posted something jokingly siding with VS and plenty of people jumped on my ass threatening to get me banned and whatnot (others liked it). It was a ridiculous situation, I made a post to diffuse it with some humor and get people… » 7/27/14 8:31pm Sunday 8:31pm

1985 Corvette, insured for $6,000 for 6,000 miles/year. I set up a plan with Hagerty with my father's info and I pay him for it, half what I'd pay had it been under my name. It's $166/year. That includes roadside assistance and 10 miles of free towing, and stuff I don't care about like their magazine. It's a… » 7/26/14 11:26pm Saturday 11:26pm

The C4 boldly went where it had never gone before

It traveled around 100 miles, give or take. Shitty drivers and a somewhat strong sun sans AC aside, it was glorious: on the highway and down some twisty rural roads to a crab place on a river where two bros in a wrangler said something nice about my car that may have been sarcastic, and on to the Chesapeake Bay… » 7/26/14 9:58pm Saturday 9:58pm

It's more fun to tick a box for the manual transmission than not be given an option, anyways! Although the point of the Viper is absurdity and excitement more than anything, an automatic would make it more accessible to the person who just wants a look at my money car that would default to a 458 or something. » 7/25/14 5:11pm 7/25/14 5:11pm
