I've made a few resolutions:
1. Spend more time with my car and Corvette friends;
2. Go to more Car events;
3. Restore (at least) one Vintage Kart.
To prove I'm serious, here are some photos from today. Don Kingery stopped by with his new 2016 Stingray. He ordered the Z51 Handling package, the LT3 interior, and special chrome wheels. What an amazing car!
Don let me drive it, which is dangerous for two reasons (I might scratch it and I might become obsessed with having one)! With 460 HP engine and the 8-speed paddle shift transmission I was able to break 100MPH on the on-ramp to the I-5 south. The sound of the engine roar and the rev-matching shifts remind me of the Corvette C7R race cars. A smooth and solid ride, fantastic interior, every high-tech electronic feature imaginable, and sexy looks cause Don to say, "I love everything about this car!"
I enthusiastically agree with him! Don, thanks for getting my 2016 off to a great start and for helping me keep my New Year resolutions!
P.S. One of the coolest options is ability to "eliminate" the mufflers with a push of a button.
