    My C6 Z06 - They don't make em like this anymore.

    With everything going supercharged, turbocharged or electric, and getting heavier, I gotta love my NA 427ci American V8, hand-signed by the builder C6 Z06 that weighs a mere 3100lbs. She's a high powered go-kart for the street.

    And no it's not stock...about $30k in upgrades, coilover suspension, 3-pc forged wheels w/345&285 tires, custom audio system, seats, steering wheel, heads, cam, headers & x-pipe & custom tuning by CSP, custom oiling system and xpel ultimate on 75% of the body.

        Yes, Sir, Atomic Orange. It was paint corrected by Mr. Sparkle, he does good work.

          I painted my Chevelle that color. Looks great out in the sun.

            Sorry, I've actually never taken it to the track, it's just fun on the street for me. She's only got 11k miles on her and spends most of her time in the garage. That's actually a bitter sweet thing, because I actually want to be able to take it out more often but always afraid to get her dirty, lol. When I had my good ole 2012 5.0 I didn't care, I drove that thing thru everything including snow, without a hiccup, so it's a tradeoff....

              Awesome, and yes, that color glows in the sun beautifully. I used to have a 72 Chevelle SS that was painted a custom blue color with white rally stripes, and had old school Cragar SS wheels. It actually had a built corvette 327 engine, instead of a big ole 454, but it was still a cool car.

                        Yeah the weight thing was a big focus with the C6 Z06...carbon fiber here, balsa wood there, you name it...it was all about pure performance...a race car you can commute to work with and get 30mpg on the highway. No it doesn't have an MB interior, but it's a pretty legendary American sports car that can be attained @ a reasonable price.

                          Your garage looks bigger than my house.

                            Haha, that's not my garage, that's my car @ Mr. Sparkle (LI Detailer) getting paint correction and Xpel Ultimate. I live in a small humble ranch with a one-car garage.
