So this morning I went for a little #drive and stopped in at a #Starbucks; a #Diablo followed me in, and within five minutes, a #Skylark #GSX, a #Triumph, and a #Stingray followed suit. This is not a location for an official #CarsAndCoffee, but all four owners knew one another and had #breakfast and #coffee together…
Year end summary of the ‘vette:
I’m trying, ok.
Ordinarily, the prospect of stumbling half-asleep to work at some ungodly hour wouldn’t excite me. I like my mornings slow—linger in bed a while, take my time drinking coffee and eating bagels, go over the car news for the day, and stroll to the subway on my way to work. There’s something nice about not having to…
Despite taking Thursday and Sunday off, I still managed to work 59.5 hours this week!
Pulled apart the parking brake boot on my new 1974 Stingray, I’m boiling it. Hopefully the plastic will flatten out and I can glue a backing plate on it so it’ll slide instead of getting all bunched up.
Stingray is a controversial cellphone tracking tool that sucks up information from all nearby cellphone users. It’s often sold as a vital tool for finding serious criminals and terrorists, an argument that is weakened somewhat when it emerges Annapolis police used it to try and find the perp in a $50 chicken robbery.
I think I fucked it up. Meh. Got to take off the plastic wrapping when this got here this morning, then toy around with it in the photo booth and drive around the back lot. I still think the suspension is too soft on these. Absolutely amazing other than that, even with the autobox. The paint is garbage. GM is the King…
Heard a boom and a smash coming from my garage. Came out to see this mess. A cabinet fell and spared my dad’s car by inches. I don’t have the faintest idea how you would repair fiberglass but I imagine it’s not easy. Super grateful that we don’t even care about cleaning up the mess. Stay safe oppo.
You NEVER expect to see a C2 this early in the year or any time in the winter in Michigan...But I just did.
As I lay here on a lakeside hammock, I figured I would share my thoughts on my latest exploits while on vacation in Florida visiting family for the holidays...
No, seriously, I’m asking. Good autocross is hard to find.
(Full Disclosure: Chevy wanted me to drive a new corvette so badly that I bought a used Ford Explorer from a local Chevy Dealer and asked if i could test drive the new corvette. To my honest shock my sales guy said yes.)
Why yes I do believe it is.
I know there's some TX2Kers around here so this should be good. The Harris County sheriff's department (that's Houston for you Yankees) used a deputy's Corvette C7 Stingray equipped with the Performance Data Recorder to catch street racers in the act on March 20 — the same weekend the TX2K event was in town.
Am I doing it right?

C7 with the Z51 package. Always nice car spotting at The Domain in Austin. Now I'm sitting outside a Tesla store watching videos of gas-powered track cars. Fun stuff.
The first impression reviews are starting to roll in. Spoiler alert: it's really, really good.
