My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

You can wrap any car in any color. This would be an easy car to wrap too.

Black with leather and a busted clutch. But cheap. Could swap seats out and wrap it.

Don't know what planet you come from but Camaros definitely have a stigma :lolol:
Not in Detroit. Camaros are respectable here oddly. And I'd rather be viewed as a :derp: than a :waxer: at this time in my life.

Boss actually said "I'll remember this at review time, I must be paying you too much"
. Joking, I'm sure, but still. :wtf:
:wtf: That's a shitty and extremely unprofessional thing for a manager to say to their employee. :disappoint:

Unfortunately, that's not helping the "Dinosaur" stigma at GM then :( . I mean I can't imagine anyone thinking a car with pop up headlights is "new". However in plain conversation without having seen the car... hearing "corvette" invokes feelings of opulence and excess in most.
Oh no, most people I work with are young. My boss is only 10 years older than I am, most of my team is younger than me. They just give no fucks about cars. None. It's sad.

:dat: and not like cost of living is high in detroit... i think it should be near mandatory to not bite the hand that feeds and drive new GM cars every 3 years... the :dill: 's employees get are epic... far better than the general public
Everyone I work with drive 10+ year old Malibus that are paid off so they can afford crotchfruit and sports things and whatever. Others just shop for the cheapest possible lease on whatever is a crossover and done.

SO yea. Either a 4th gen Camaro or a GTO would be pretty great.
I would way rather have the GTO. The interior is quite superior.

2005 ellis dos CABRA con manuel and only 6,500 miles. $26k. Honestly I don't think that's horrible. It's basically a new car.

Hot damn that would be a fun car. Throw a blower on it and some coilovers. You could get 600 HP out of this rather easily.

I like them both but the day you add 5k to the red its worth 20 or less. Id offer 15 on the black one. Really smooth style those have. Nice looking performance coupe.

Yeah I like the black one too. IMO it would make a better sleeper / drag car in black. Draws less attention to itself.

I mean. It's like a more usable vette that nobody knows what it is and it looks like a Grand Prix. Better ground clearance, no scraping, will ride and soak up potholes better, useless rear seat for dog and stuff, fly under the radar, but it's got a sledgehammer of an engine.

:notbad: way to go here

I will never own another black car. Way too difficult to keep clean. Plus, I love color. I want Red, Blue, or #1 Orange, but those are :unicorn: on all cars.

Well, usability is questionable. The :poorvette: has a MASSIVE hatch area. It's ridiculous how much crap you can fit back there. I really like that. GTO's don't really have a trunk because the gas tank is there, so I'm not going to fit much back there, not like I will.

Your point on ground clearance, scraping, and ride is really what gets me going. Would be a 5/7 switch. But the same could be said for a 4th gen f-body.

Mentioned selling the Vette casually to :tits: this morning, and it turns out that she really likes the :poorvette: I had no idea, but she thinks it's a bad idea to sell it. She said I should have told my boss "marry a woman that hates crotchfruit and you can have all the toys you want. A Corvette that lasts forever is cheaper than a year of worthless college.". :notbad: :fuckyeah:

Apparently, she likes that the top comes off and we can cruise Woodward and whatnot on nice nights (which we do a few times per week in the summer). She also likes taking it on road trips. I was pretty surprised, I had no idea she liked it so much. I mentioned the bad roads and she said to just stop driving it to work and we'll carpool in the truck more (we did this today). Maybe she just doesn't want me sinking into another project, but I did NOT expect that reaction. She usually says to do whatever I want.

She drives the :truk: until the Volt is fixed (picking up the bumper from the body shop tonight).

I really do not mind driving the Volt, especially with free charging at work. It's a legit :notbad: commuter. She'll keep driving the :truk: and I'll drive the Volt on days we don't carpool. We've been carpooling 2-3 days/week, so we'll probably switch between the Volt and the :truk: for that.

In the winter, she'll need to drive the Volt because of the heated steering wheel, not on the ZR2. :lolol:
