New Corvette Stingray Unveiled For 2014 - C7 Redesign

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

I want a used vette so bad. Just as my fun car. No rain. Just for fun driving and cruising. Maybe in a couple of years
I had a year two Viper...which was really the first year they were driven since the initial order (in 91 if I remember correctly) mainly went to collectors who never drove them. I didn't pay a premium, and it was a fun ride, but a car without a usable second gear that had a removable top that took four people a half hour to put on curbed my enthusiasm...I'm looking forward to the new NSX personally...

That's the problem with exotics and why most of them have very few miles on them when they get resold.

The cost to maintain is ludicrous.

Most have to take the engine out to service them, usually around 5-10K for a complete service depending on if 8 or 12 cylinder.

Vette's can be daily drivers, exotics not.

shit...the 4v Ducati adjustments are anywhere from like 500-800.
...and that's for 8 valves total. lol I can't imagine what it would be on a Ferrari or Lambo; or any other engine that uses Desmo valve actuation.

which is why, if I ever get a Duc, I'm getting the 2v and doing it myself.

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.
is this dave's camaro?

Yup.

Thing is amazing. Still has a couple of gremlins, but an absolute monster. If you want I can PM you the facebook address for the builder. It's a complete build history from the old black junker to that thing.

Kevin did a fantastic job...in just a hair under a decade.

He saw 'em on a Challenger, liked them and put them on there. He also had the scoop painted like an RT. He wanted something that looked a little different than every other Camaro out there.

I'd have gone with a simple hockey stripe and matching SS stripes or maybe just the hockey stripe and painted cowl, but his idea looks pretty good (even though it's a clear MOPAR stripe).

So as not to go full hijack:

Spoiler!

I still think it's bad ass; I would kill to have something like that.

I also like the old Yenko stripes

Yeah, I think those look sharp, but if you want to really piss off a car guy, slap Yenko stripes on a regular Camaro...

The hockey stripes were my happy medium. I wouldn't build a ripoff (even if they look fantastic), but that styling is sharp as hell. A hockey stripe captures some of it without making you a classic car pariah.
