  1. Glad we FINALLY got THAT cleared up..................
  2. Geez, a guy is here 5 minutes and he becomes 'Management'......................... Seriously Dude, from one Canuck to another congrats and as the guys have mentioned above, very well deserved, .........................but as far as giving you the gears.................... yeah that will probably continue............. I hope it does, as that's what makes this a real cool place......you will probably collect your 'pay check' and have little to do to earn it......

    1st LSM Christmas Raffle (list updated)

    You're the best !
  4. I hear you loud and clear Hubert, IF we all liked the same ride, the world would be an extremely dull place.............. and , Like you or not like you... I have always been a Corvette guy and never a Porsche , and like you, not one for me, BUT I do kinda like the turbo Carrera...... big whale tail in black...... we all have our passions, and once a Car Guy, always a car guy, and I can appreciate what it takes to keep a ride clean and what it takes to build a ride.... tuners, for me, NEVER, BUT I always try to talk with the young guns who have them and see what they have done, and some of those guys have HUGE talent.... defiantly not for an old fart like me, but I sure can appreciate what they do, and any of that is better than some of the other trouble they could get in...... its all good, and a little friendly rivalry is also very healthy.....
  5. DANNY................ my eyes HURT............................... that IP is absolutely STUNNING. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy cow man........I bet I spent 10 minutes looking at it...... the clear resin makes it POP !!!
  6. Thanks , buddy, I thought I 'might' be getting carried away a bit.....the $10k plus service fees for a Lambo, would be enough for me to say no thanks, BUT IF I had enough dosh to buy a Lambo then the 10k service wouldn't be a problem I guess.... HUH.... I'm afraid I'm a Corvette guy through and through, I know they are MY passion, and they are NOT for everyone, and they or the guys that drive them can get a bad reputation.....I have noticed though, most of the Corvette guys are now old farts like me.... been down the road a few times and know NOT to be a Yahoo with folks..... old and wise, maybe............... well old but not that wise.... as I mentioned I still have a very soft spot for a '69 Mach 1, or Boss of course, '70 Mach 1 or Boss, and as I had a '71 I could do that again all 4 spds of course.... they still turn on an old guy like me.....( T M I ??? ) I always drool at Barrett-Jackson when those come up on the block............................................. sigh....................................................
  7. I totally agree, your painting skills are incredibly clean and accurate..............

    Fire at sovereign hobbies

    Damn, Jamie is a good guy, I have dealt with him a time or two.... hope he gets back up and running once more.....
  9. I can agree , but I must say.....the C2 and C3 are not great road trip cars, they do ride a little rough and are, or can be a bit of a bear to toss around some heavy curves at speed in stock form, don't get me wrong a 67 L71 4 speed is still very high on my want list ( 200 k does take the fun out of that want a little tho) and as an owner of a C4 and a C5, I have to totally agree with the C5 is a little 'bulbous' in the back, BUT with that said.......... when they first came out I was outraged at the bulbous styling, and vowed to keep my C 4 always ( which I have so far new in 93 and still have her 44,000 miles) then for some reason the C5 grew on me, no not like a fungus, but it did, I drove one, and wow what a change for me.... there are many reasons why the style change for the C5 , one was so two sets of golf clubs could be hauled..... like I gave a damn about that.... I did go out and buy a 50th anniversary roadster from a good buddy of mine and I have to say I love it......the style has grown on me and along side my C4 they make a great pair, with the LS engine power it is a rocket ship on wheels ..., BUT the C7 nay, nay....... not for 100k each, and the mid engine C8, I get why and all that stuff, but that would be like Ford doing a mid engine 'Stang, not in my world.....I guess I just have to step into the 20th century and leave the 21st to the young guns....... in my particular case, I still have a very soft spot in my heart for the Mustang, I had 3 of them, I am also VERY lucky to have a wife who embraces my car hobby, and participates with me at car shows and events, and I know how lucky I am to have ONE Corvette let alone TWO, Martin, I don't mean to hijack your thread and make it mine or about "those other cars", but all of us 'Car Guys' can appreciate your frustration at the lengthy time of repair to your steed... this is even becoming frustrating for ME, and it's not even my car....... have fun and relax in the sun, drink a couple dozen beers, and look at the pretty girls if you have to......
