C4 ZR1 or 96 Collectors Edition for me. I know there are better options, but they were the poster cars when I was going up.

Stink Star Stink Star if you end up getting that GS I’ll be humping your leg for DAYS.

To be honest, would forego the Collector Edition and go with a standard 96 6-speed since they all come with the LT4. The ZR-1 would be slick.

Made an offer on a customers car. Cleanest GS I’ve ever seen. Literally looks new top and bottom. Only issue is he put stupid tires and non 17x11 wheels on it, but has the originals. He threw out a stupid number (to be fair he wasn’t looking to sell) but invited me and the corvette tech from my work to come see his corvettes because they are all that clean. So he has a 96 GS, an ‘04 24hour Z06, and a Ron Fellows C6 Z06. They were all perfect. Maybe someday he will want to sell and in that case he now knows I’m the guy. The guy was super nice and you could tell he was excited to show us the cars. So much photo documentation on the walls. He wanted a picture of us in the garage so I bet we are gonna end up on the wall too 😂View attachment 147786
Hey its Paul, great fucking guy. His LeMans C6Z is the cleanest around.

Anecdotal, of course, but been watching Portage Ford's inventory lately. That 107k Raptor 37 they have in stock, real cost is 87k with a 20k ADM tacked on. They've dropped their ADM to 10k, total price 97k. Raptor has been there, what, 2 weeks now?

Looking at the rest of their inventory, EVERY car has a price cut almost similar to pre-covid. Trucks with 4-7k reductions, cars with 6k reductions, etc.

What type of go fast mods are typical on those. I know they are something like 400hp from the factory. But I seen a sick looking slammed white one a few months ago on Irving. That MFer was moving from a dig, then we both got on the EOE, and he hammered down and got little really fast. No way it was stock
Late to the party but same drivetrain as my car. This dudes mods are basically turbo back, intercooler, splash of ethanol and a piggyback.

Unfortunately other than a piggyback everything for my car would have to be custom. I’m just running basic bitch intakes I made and a burger jb4 piggyback. I’ll probably fuck with e85 this summer and turn up the boost more.

Looking at trucks in Wisco, came across this:

I imagine this one still had some healthy markup.

I’ve been wanting a Charger Hellcat for so long now. It may be soon time.

But my boss also just got a 2020 GT500 and holy fuck I might have just fallen in love.

But I also drive a fuck-ton for work and neither of those two options are feasible. So I may be stuck with a Prius or some other bullshit gas saver.

The way hellcats are getting stolen and totaled out the clean ones left in 15 years might be worth a fortune.
