I would love to go to that show, I have read about it on the corvette forum. It's huge, I think its an all weekend meet.

Heck, at this point I would love to go to any corvette meet, just haven't had time with school or modding the corvette when there has been a meet worth going to. After next week my planned mods and maintenance for the year will be wrapped up on the corvette, been busy with it. I just have to grow a pair so I can cut holes in my side skirts to install the Z06 rear brake ducts next week. The thought of cutting up my car body makes me want to vomit but I want to do it myself. Wish me luck.

Nice!!!!

When i move to Florida (couple of years). I might pick up a vette as a toy car. Can't do much with that in Chicago and my garage already has 2 cars in it.

Well, I cut up my corvette. This was easily the most mentally challenging project I've tackled on a car. Here is where I'm at today, next pics I will post will be of the vents/ducts installed and the car cleansed of all the fiberglass dust. Relieved I got the cutting/drilling done without ruining my side skirts.

Nice looking car! I miss CO. I lived in the springs for about 1.5 years. Awesome weather year round for when I owned my s2k.

Your car looks great!
Back in 2000 when I bought my S2000 I cross shopped the corvette (I ended up paying $40,000 for the S, so prices were comparable). Lately, I wonder how much fun the vette would have been.

I detailed the corvette while it has been sitting. Just started it for the first time this year. Kept things very simple on the detail other than the wet sanding the wheels. Used M105 and M205 with an orange and white pad respectively. Used Meg's #20 for sealant. Adams #1 and #2 polish were used on everything aluminum. Sorry for the photobomb, will be at least 3 years before I would be willing to detail the car to this degree again.
