Long tubes really wake the C7 up. Headers and a tune will deliver about 450 to the wheels.

Finally got my plates. And had a friend print me some stickers. Prob get some different color ones (blue to match car, matte and gloss black) and a little smaller. I'm not a huge stickers on the car guy so not sure how I will use them but they are cool.

In case you were wondering: https://jalopnik.com/400424/jalopnik...ak-meet-elwood

I was considering a small outline one in matte black on the license plate between L and the D or a small blue one like in the link on the back hatch glass.

Oh hey.

Still don't have my Kooks from Maryland Speed...
Picked up these wheels, haven't decided on if I'm keeping them or going forged wheels.

I really like the 60th Anniversary Cup/C7 Grand Sport wheels. I'd love to have a set myself, as I have a 60th Anniversary Grand Sport. I think if I bought another set of wheels, though, my wife would have something quite negative to say about it.

Have you explained to her how a fast car, nice wheels, big house....etc, makes your junk bigger? It's true. You can't argue with science.

I'm thinking of another Vette with some nice wheels, and maybe a larger house.

Might get these instead in 19" all around. If not, I might put a tinted clear on the cup wheels and run them.

So I was looking at trucks yesterday. 2017 High Country with about 6k in add-ons. I am TRYING to like the C7 but I just can't. Thing is, they had a 2016 GT3 Porsche, a few old 911 turbo convertible, 4 C6 ZR-1's (one is a Carlisle Blue), and numerous other C7s including some Z06 cars. They had a C6Z as well as a bunch of used Grand Sports. I honestly am done with C6's and the C7 just doesn't do it for me. I wanted to like them but I just can't.

They did have two GTR's but not feeling them either.


I am STILL hung up a Viper.

That is one sexy beast. It's about the only C6 I would consider.

How difficult was that? I opted for the aftermarket LED taillights and then tinted covers, but I'm not completely in love with them.

I didn't use the external ones, they came out right after I bought mine. I did a How To writeup because there was no info on installing these inside the tails. Not too bad at all. Going to get them tinted soon.
