I know you from SHOFORUM, you're in Vanilla Park, right? ;-)
I'm E1 V2 over there. Beautiful car, man.

Ready to quit the SHO game already? If you can bring me that car tomorrow, I'll pull your front valvecover to see if you're welded, but I doubt it is.

I do that for free for V8 SHO owners, BTW.

Yah, I am selling the vette too. I may be getting a different job. That is a pretty good hike. So going to get something alot more thrifty.

I am almost positive it isn't welded. Car looks like it has never seen a wrench. But what time would you want me over there?

100 percent city. I am getting 17mpg. 4 stop signs, 3 lights and a right turn. 6 minute ride or 1.2 miles.

That is my current trip to work. My new one will be an hour or so in rush hour traffic.:eek: aka 25 miles.

On my first tank when I had some mixed driving I avged 22-23.

These things see 18 city 26 hwy with the AC on. Trust me on that, I have 5 of them. One of the greatest 4 door American cars ever built. Safety is 5 star PLUS - See my Avatar - I wadded one up at 70 into a concrete block and lived.

Nacht - Come over any time after 9 am and I should be up and around. My cell is 630-240-2834. You should already have directions.
Finley and 22nd, remember?

Hey -
You need to mention that this car is now Welded too. And that welding has a lifetime written warranty which will be transferred to the new owner upon contacting me.

Big plus for any V8 SHO to be welded. Peace of mind.

Sweet car, rare color, last V8 SHO and high options for a 99. Super low miles.:biggthump:hail:

The engines have been known to slip time on secondary camshaft timing sprockets. When this happens, piston meets valves and it gets ugly from there.

A 'Welded' V8 SHO engine has had these timing sprockets permanently welded to the camshafts as a permanent fix for this problem. Once these engines are welded, these cars frequently see well over 200,000 miles.

Welded = GOOD
