Weird how some families start early. My dad turns 70 in May and he's only been a grandpa for 5yrs!

All the older guys at work saying "I'm old enough to be your daddy!". Yeah well my dad's old enough to be YOURS

Nice rides Tony

Sorry, back on topic now

So....today I'm perusing craigslist and stumble on these for a price..
....and I just had to test fit them when I got home....
Just have to buy some 25mm spacers for the rears and I'm gold. Needless to say, I'm a very happy camper right now.

This is starting to get out of hand Tom.
The wheels do the trick and Dozerboy is correct. Needs tint.

Yeah, its getting out of hand, Mike. Just like my truck, the Cruze, etc, etc, etc....
but those wheels were flat-out like new. Not one scratch or mar on any of them. All clean on the inside surfaces, too. Tires will get me thru one or two seasons, which made the deal for me. I couldnt pass them up for the $500 I gave. I wanted C6 polished wheels on the car, now Ive got them.

Windows get tinted whenever I decide to call Darius (4warned) up. Probably will go 35% like on the Cruze.


Im still trying to figure out why everyone I know thinks it's strange I bought a Vette? Ive always had a fast car/truck.

I had a 3rd, an Atomic Z06 to match my ZR1, but I traded that one off for the wife's car 18 months ago.

Very nice! I would love to have a 427. Actually, I would love to have a ZR1 or a Z06 too for that matter, but those 427s are very rare and a top down cruiser like that just has to be too much fun.

The best was when I rolled up next to a Camaro SS at a light in the 427 Vert, he thought it was a regular wide body C6............

That was until the light turned green, when I yanked 1st to 2nd at 55+ mph an was over 90 mph in 2nd he was a bit behind me by then.

The 427 is a hell of a motor, the ZR1 is pretty bad ass as well.

I really want a DEMON, just because I see it as a hugely sought after car in 15 or 20 years.

Maybe this year I can add that to my collection.



these were the twins, traded the 2009 Z06 for a Porsche Boxster S for the wife, now I just ordered 2019 Boxster GTS to replace the wife's 2013 Boxster S, otherwise a Hellcat or Demon would be on my radar to purchase for sure, we shall see how things go.

I do not spend money on really anything, I live a really simple life, not a lot of things I waste my $$$$ on, except shiny things with HP and TQ...........lol
