    B, you got me so scared. I was expecting you to be touting the virtues of the new Cobalt or something.

    Silly me for thinking they actually did something right with their cars.

    Loco, I think the C6 has transverse leaf springs in the rear suspension. I do like the new Corvette though. The new headlamps remind me of the Modena. For the money, it is one of the best performing sports cars.

    again... as stated in another thread.... the C6 WHICH IS A RACE PREPED CAR Is equiped with four-wheel independent: includes transverse fiberglass leaf springs..... k? and the only reason nascar is still using them is that they have so much time and money ivested into those motors that changing anything would cost millions... that and its kind of in the rules you have to have one....

    Sooo... what exactly is your point? The 3200 lb race prepped C6 has been measured at pulling .98 on the skippad & runs the quarter at 12.7... leafsprings and pushrods or not... thats good enough to take any car you have. I take it you're british and you've watched the Top Gear review one too many times?

    btw... B what were you doing on chevy dot com? isn't that like against your religion or something? :)

    yeah I'd have to say Chevy has done something right.
    I've got an 88' 1500 C-series with 156,000+ on there 4.3ltr v6
    and not a fucking problem ever. I also had an 81 Camaro 250K mileson the original motor with a 305 that burnt and leaked 9 quarts of oil every week , we tried to kill that motor and you just can't kill a 305. I also had an 87 Beretta w/200K on it, only reason I sold it is because I bought the CRX.

    It's ford that really blows donkey balls
