New Corvette Stingray Unveiled For 2014 - C7 Redesign

Not sure if I like this new style, looks somewhat Japanese like a Nissan or something.

Exactly.

That kind of money would by you 1 Nice muscle car. In fact, it would by you 1/2 of a show-caliber car.

It would buy you 2 drivers. My '67 is a driver car and it looks sharp as hell from 5 feet away, but it's nothing close to that Vette in performance and at best I'd be able to get 2 of them for the cost of the Vette.

(now comes me shamelessly showing off the Camaro...sorry)



If you're looking for your absolute best performance for your dollar, it's damn near impossible to beat the Corvette. When you don't hand-stitch the leather or use purpose-built key-fobs, suddenly you have a performance machine that can keep up with a $300K exotic that you and I can actually afford to purchase, maintain and fuel.

I'd rather have a used low mileage Ferrari 360 Modena for about 80K.

The sound from the Tubi exhaust is amazing.

Just love the glass engine bonnet.

But you'll be able to get a used, low mileage Stingray in a couple of years for 30K.

And a used ZR1 would torch that Modena.

I like a vet but even the mac daddy stock vet wouldn't touch my TA. Not only was it super clean but it ran 10.8s on motor and in theory deep into the 9s on spray, (built for spray, never unleashed) and it was a full street car with a/c, power steering, leather, etc etc. Could drive it to the track and run 10s, then drive it home.

Had 12.5k in it, and sold it for 12.5k. Free racecar!

I can't imagine the valve adjustment interals and cost to check tolerances/adjust them.

I LOVE the looks of them though.

You are 100% correct. The Corvette is the most affordable super car on the planet.

I am in the middle of an extensive build on my 65' Chevy II and am probably putting a new GMPP 525hp LS3 motor in it which is a slightly hopped up version of the Camaro and Vette motor.

500+HP LS motor, 5 speed Tremec TKO600 trans, 4 wheel disk brakes, TCI front touring clip with power rack. All new stuff. Its going to be nice.

I should have just bought a Vette, would have been cheaper.

My buddy built a 6-figure '68 and he dropped a crate "M-Block" motor in it that bolted into the small-block engine bay but produces large-block power.

It's a pretty amazing motor (hell, the car is incredible).



His car is a no-shit show car, though. He's brought home a couple of good-guys builders choice trophies, etc... It's an amazing ride. It took 9 years to finish, but an incredible vehicle nonetheless.

I currently have a Dart Little M 427 SBC motor that I took out of the car. It has 3,000 miles on it. I just want an LS motor really bad.

PM me if you are interested in the 427 I am looking to sell it.

I tell you, I'd love it. The problem is that A) The suspension in my car is stock from a '67, so it's not like I can take advantage of the power and B) I gotta believe that thing would tear my 700R4 transmission apart.

I wouldn't mind a little more intel on the motor if you want to shoot me a PM though. I was pretty amazed by the specs on my buddy's.

So you went with the LS motor instead of the Dart, eh? I really thought the Dart was the way people were trending these days.
