Here is me next to a Cobra (I am no fan of Carroll Shelby, but that was a sweet machine)

That yellow Vette was born the same year I was and was loud as F***.

I usually hate promoting anything Chrysler related, but I really like the old Chargers and I like this paint job:

And of course, the hottest car there, ah, the Saleen:

Well, she wasnt there, but she was on my camera with these pictures:

I cannot believe I am responsible for creating something that adorable. I still think she is the mailman's.

Well if you're not taking credit, major compliments to your mailman. He does great work!
All the other pics are :cool: too.

Looks like it was great time ... for the mailman. She's a cutie.

Car event was probably fun, too.

Beautiful little girl- I think the same thing every time I look at my son. How my dumb ass managed to make a perfect little guy is amazing to me.

(This thread has completely changed direction- Baby thread GO!! :D)

Great pics!!! and the car photos are cool too.

Notice that Dan's(silver V) and I (redline V) don't have our hoods open. That's because Brians V makes ours feel rather flacid. Everyone grinned when they saw the NOS bottles in the trunk's spare tub. Also we were parked next to the Saleen that stole the show so the V's were seen by about a million people. I've also come to realize there are about as many Corvettes in this country as Honda Accords. Anyway, after the show I'm off to Big 3 for some more mods!

As much as they drive you crazy, the kids are fulfilling arent they? Thanks for all the positive comments guys, Linnea appreciates it, or will some day.

Tony, just wait until they are old enough for us to pass on our car-sickness to...

I am rather bummed I didnt get my car lined up next to yours and Brian's. How awesome would it have been to have gotten a picture of all four colors?!

Oh well, maybe next time. Thanks again to Joel!

WTF that Saleen S7!!!! Costs $550,000 does 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and
200+mph!!!!! I saw that guy in the convoy going to the show. I wonder what the insurance is on that thing.

The greatest news is that the fastest production car in the world runs an American V8 with an aluminum block, pushrods, and 2 valves per cyclinder. Take that Euro-trash!!!!!!!!!!

See the web site for the S7. Check out the performance tab!

Did you notice the Ferrari guys, standing around with long faces, getting ignored by all the people drooling on the S7? :lol:

Since I'm the forum hater, I'll rain on your parade :D.

Not really digging the NOS and Z06 Stickers / Emblems.

I bet that thing is fast though. :thumbsup:

Enjoy,

I'm normally not a big sticker guy but the NOS stickers have done well when showing the car to the general public--since your general goofballs understand "NOS" their eyes instantly light up when they make the connection. Heck, I have people regularly look under the hood, see the Maggie and think its all stock!! :eek: As far as the ZO6 emblem--I couldn't stomach "Volant's" crappy emblem and a factory V emblem didn't cover up the holes adequately.
PS--It's very fast :lildevil:

Heh, it's all good.

Personally, I de-badged the outside, HOWEVER, I did put an LS6 enblem on the back where the CTS was. My buddies were teasing me about it being rice this weekend, however I consider it an homage to the C5Z that we shared an engine with.
