    Dude, you should know better than to trust the car labels on Autotrader. Neither of those are ZR1s. Come on, man!

    New SPORT car in the stable

    Interesting to see adaptive cruise on a manual. That's not available on any stick shift car in the US. Do other Euro spec manual cars have that as an option? Does it disengage below a certain speed?

    Reaction to Pista vs NFGT

    thanks! It's got twin Rotrex blowers, coilovers, Brembos, B&B exhaust....my 3rd E39, and the best of all the other cars combined.

    My new 'Bird.

    I do like those, but I need a mint '89-90 SHO first!

    Yessir!

    My new 'Bird.

    Gonna have Jeff do an EFI conversion on it. Tired of it not running well/carb needing maintenance with the ported heads/cam setup off my old Mark V.

    Other than evenly spaced exhaust ports, and a 90 deg V, what exactly do they have in common? The LS architecture is related closely to its LT5 predecessor in the 90-95 ZR-1, but shares little with the Ford...

    My new 'Bird.

    Found this gem near Toronto. Rare 35th anniversary super coupe with a 5 speed, with 13000 original km.

    Pretty much everything. Power, torque, small/lightweight nature, and the sound. Though, to be fair, the LS/LT motors that debuted in '97 are no longer SBC's.

    My Pista and GT see eye to eye. 😁 It is total stealth compared to the GT and Senna, no question.

    Chip, the heaviest, largest motor ever installed in a Vette over the past 30 years was, not coincidentally, the only DOHC motor ever installed in the Vette, the 1990-95 LT5. The pushrod motor is neither heavy nor obsolete compared to its OHC rivals,but rather it is lighter and far more...

I've had 10+ Corvettes from a pristine '85 to a C6Z06 race car to a 2019 ZR1, and aside from the rear styling, I'm all in on this one. I really like the interior layout, and...

    Getting a Pista this week...

    Pista leaves the GT for dead on the straights. I like the feel of the GT a little better in the tight stuff.
