I sold my 04 Z51 Coupe in 2006 because the quality was terrible. Paint was orange peeled, fit and finish on panels was non existent, and the roof constantly leaked.

Traded it for this:

Did you know it takes a 4 part video for someone to say use Windex to clean your windows. :lol:

I still Love My 1987 C4 Corvette Roadster.
Drove it much this year.
6,000 miles.
Its time to buy new rear tires. I have them almost bald.
Mickey Thompson is making P315/35R17 street tires now..Price right at around $150 on Summit Racing when I checked last month.

That reminds me...
I've got Pilot Sports on my FRC I bought back in 04. I only put about 10k miles on it since then, but that means the tires are 12-13 years old not counting the shelf life. Something about old tires and beating on them at high speed gets me nervous...

The democrat party is the most successful hate group. It attracts poor people who hate rich people, black people who hate white people, gay people who hate straight people, feminists who hate men, environmentalists who hate the internal combustion engine, and a lot of bratty college kids who hate their parents. However, the real secret of the party's success is that it attracts the support of journalists who hate Republicans, and who therefore work tirelessly to convince the rest of us that we should vote for democrats.

Yes Nitro.

New tires are in order to be safe.

I had a front tire blow out on my driving my 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix with the 1965 Olds 425 Rocket V8 I transplanted earlier this year.
I was driving 80 mph steady on Interstate 80 here at 7:30 AM.
The left front tire Blew out.
I went sideways at 80 mph.
I pulled the car back straight counter steering.
Not easy to do with a 4,200 lb car.
Lucky the car sits low stock. Low center of gravity it has.
And its a widetrack front & rear stance car.

So that week in September I went out & bought 4 brand new tires for my 1963 GP.
Cooper Super Cobra tires.
P225/70R15's.
Set me back about $425 from Discount Tires in Joliet, IL. Got a pretty good deal. The Boss lined me up with his discount.
We do lots of repair work for Discount tires & send them work too.
