    Make mine silver with some grey ghost stripes. Ebony interior of course. Delete the oddball colors on the interior. I like the mopars, I just like the vettes better.

    I have an 04 with exhaust, cam and some head work. They go, they stop, but what impresses me most is how it hangs on in the turns. A group of us were running down by Bowling Green shortly after I got the car. Was used, but completely stock when I got it. So we were ripping it up through the turns and it was scaring the s--t out of me. Of course I was like fifth in line and if someone were going to lose control, I likely would have been able to watch it happen in front of me. Even how many years later, I probably have not even come close to finding out what it will do in the turns.

    i have had 3. a BB67 conv., an 80, and the 02. the 67 was a handful, no ac, no p/s. no p/b. poor handling & hot. BUT, a 4 speed 427-400 hp. made up for it all. no heads-up display on that baby!

    Had the 67 wide open, 138 mph. the nose lifted way too high and felt unstable. the 1980 350-L89 auto stock did 150 @ 6000 straight as a arrow & flat as a board. i have never gone any faster, that motor was singing. car felt glued to the road, great aerodynamic shape. the new ones must be way cool..

    I had a 70 with the LT-1 375 hp. 4 sp. (under rated hp imo) Built up from there. It were fast, didn't handle worth a crap with no weight in the rear. That thing would do 360's in the rain on a whim. Guy I sold it to totaled it on the way home in a spin out. I tried to warn him, but the go pedal urge was strong with that one.

    I had a 69 with full Greenwood body. Had 350/350hp, m-21, 4:10, heater, radio, ps, and pb delete. Chrome open hooker header sidepipes. It was a fun car.

    A 911 would take out a Vette unless it was a drag race (back then).

    Want to have fun, go run Auto Cross.

    I had a 66 Coupe with a 327. Had it to 138 and still climbing... Solid as a rock! Maybe the coupe's aerodynamics were that different?

    I've had my 72 911S to 140 or so. Stuck like glue!
    They laugh at me because I'm different; I laugh at them because they're all the same.
