    Yeah - the latest super 918 & 911 spawned Porches nun under 3.0 seconds to 60 now. But they have a couple hundred more HP. We will see.

    I was scrolling through threads over on the C8 site of Corvette Forums. From the pictures I actually thought the C8 might have come down in size from the C7. Wrong - it's at least several inches...

    I have a feeling it will be a big hit. Too bad the manual transmission option is out - many will not like that. Rear styling is unfortunate and too busy IMO - might look OK in basic black. Curious...

    That seems really advanced for 1910. Cool old car. Boy, we've come along way since .095HP/cubic inch. It had something down low on the right side of the engine that almost looked like a...

    I heard something about trying to hold the price down so that's probably a base level motor. That's OK - not everyone bought a 427 back in the 60s in a Corvette.

    Hundreds of thousands go through a similar thing every year with nothing but insurance and a small savings account in the bank. They are in far better shape than most.

    I went back and looked at a picture of myself circa early 70s. Personally these videos are staring to depress me.

    Reminds me I haven't visited a drag strip in at least 10 years. Boy that black Nova looked good but sure needed some suspension work. And that 60's Chevy pickup was a good sleeper. He just needed...

    A beast yes - makes my 66 Corvette look like a Prius. Couple observations:

    - No earplugs? I said - NO EARPLUGS?

    I think most of the horsepower ratings were truly dyno-based, but were gross figures without accessories, etc. But when insurance and safety gadflys started making a public scene about escalating HP...

    Never happen in Arkansas. No telling how many thousands of dollars in fines I would have racked up restoring my 66 Corvette. I pulled the motor and body off the frame in the garage. I sandblasted...

    Yeah really - if he was going for a Fury he should have at least used a 64.
