Very nice! Pretty exciting ride! I hope your Dad enjoys the new Vette.
I could not own one of those, there would be no rear tires left by the end of the week!
Any future performance mods planned?

Moved to "Your Other Rides" section due to family vehicles do not qualify as "Your" rides nor do they qualify for COTM.

He loves it. I know that he says that he doesn't plan on doing anything to it, but then again, he said similar things before buying the Camaro. He said at the most, he'll tune it because he has an HP tuner with several GM licenses. I think he knows that he can get into enough trouble in that car as it is.

Nor do they fit in the category of 'your' 'other ride'. General Chat is probably the best bet for this thread.

Sorry about the wrong section thing. When I posted about my dad'* Camaro and Grand Prix a few years ago, I'm fairly sure that I used the "your rides" section. I honestly never thought that it was an issue.

Yeah, my dad wasn't a huge black-on-black (or "murdered out") fan, but he looked at this Grand Sport for a few weeks. The more he looked at it, the more he liked it. Heck, he ordered a set of side marker covers (probably the only real mod he is going to do to the Corvette, period) to complete the blackout look.

When you become a moderator or admin here, then you can have a say in the matter, until then, how things are done here isn't your business Randall.
