THE ALL AMERICAN CORVETTE STRUTS IT'S STUFF AT THE GRUELING 24HRS OF LE MANS FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS READ BELOW!

By Spinning15

Filed under: /blogs/browse/t/vehicle/v//p

The Corvette C6 406 HP and Now this Z06 505 HP Vette is one incredible sports car - 5 Lemans Wins since 2002 over Porche, Ferrari, Maserati and Mercedes proves that America can produce a consistent world dominating sports car!

After 2 years, the 05 Vette has no squeeks no rattles - one great 7 speaker Bose stereo system - and a quiet cockpit - so you can really appreciate the tunes. This Vette is very nimble, handles like a dream, well balanced, and goes around corners like it's on rails. Won the JD Power and Associates prize for best initial quality luxury sports car for several years now!

Mash the loud pedal and hang on it's the Z06, you can listen to the SWEETEST exhaust sound (a high compression American V8) while doing it!
Thanks Bruce

I Thought after the 1967 Corvette Tri power they would never build another like it...Looks like they have!!!

I have owned a couple of Vettes But after the 1967 I onwned then my parents traded it in without me knowing I though I was going to be depressed for life. I bought a 1981 I did not think it should have been called a corvette! It was a dog!!! Then that led to a 1992 Crossfire Corvette Oh my God No one could repair it. Then this one came along as I entered a contest held by the Corvette Museun in Tennessee my family played a prank on me and made me believe I had won a Corvette!!! My wife saw the raffle tickets and made me believe I had won it. I looked into this Vette and the more I read the more I liked what I read. I felt it had the right Stuff! It has Won the 24 hours of the Le Mans two years ago and the Austin Martin Squeek a win this year by a hair.
I was going to go with the 400 HP Le Mans Blue plus a automatic paddle shift model. Special order. I bought two raffle tickets one for a build your own and the other for the Z06. I was not lucky enough to win either raffle. I was buying the Vette for my dear wife and me to finally go on a long awaited vacation we have been waiting to go on for 28 years. Make a long story short. My wife and family got together and put the down payment down for me!!! Now I have the best Corvette I feel Chevrolet has made since 1967 an engine that weighs 350 Lbs with 505 HP Holy Smokes. Yes It is Real fast!!! It Handles like nothing I have ever driven and now I am adding Twin turbos a Borla exaust and some other goodies to include a good tuning by Jimmy Smith the best tunner I know! The twins will be done at Lindenfelders soon. His Father was killed racing or testing one of his famous cars. I plan to make this my last but fastest Vette I have ever owned. It is Scary fast now but everything is relevent.

The Cars That I Love and a little bit about what I like and do.

By Spinning15

I am Spinning15. I am a Thunderbird SC and a Corvette enthusiast. I like Ford Thunderbirds Super Coupes especially Stroked and Blown modified ones. I also like Corvettes and have owned a few for many years of my life, the first one being a 1967 Tri-Power 427-435 HP.My real first car was a 1949 Ford 6 cylinder flathead...
My wife and I presently own a few Thunderbird Super Coupes. They are one of our favorite cars and many people do not know much about these awesome cars. We also like the LX and the LS 5.0L HO. We have one which came with a Lentech Terminator Plus transmission and to top it all off, it's A Bill Elliot Special. It is a 1993 LS with the SC ground effects and everything you can possibly imagine and only has 36,000 miles on the clock! It is a big favorite of ours. We just acquired a Corvette. The Corvette is the newest addition to our collection. We got it as an Anniversary pesent to ourselves, with some luck, hard work and some money we had saved up for this Beauty!!! I guess we can forget about early retirement for now. We love the Fords and working with Fords especially the SC. I especially like older cars like these Thunderbird SCs because of it's potential and was built way ahead of it's time. Being it's a 6 cylinder, it's a real challenge to make it perform at it's maximum capability. It handles great and has gorgeous lines which do not seem to age, just like the Corvettes and the Mustangs. The Corvettes are usually fast already so it will be for special enjoyment for my wife and I to enjoy. After 30 years of work, we are happy to own it!!! Eventually it will be given to my son who serves in the Army as a Chinook Pilot and instructor of helicopters and commercial fixed wing pilot and instructor as well. That might be awhile and a few miles to come yet.

We are also vendors of performance parts for the Thunderbird and accessories for various makes and models. We presently belong to the MN12 Thunderbird Super Coupe and XR7 Cougar&Mark Vlll Club here at Motortopias Awesome site!!! We are also members of SCCoA, TCCoA, SVTOA We have many good friends that are here at this time and are happy that they invited us to join up with them. It is an honor for us. So we decided to join in the group and happy that we did. We have an E-commerce store on line. It's URL is...

There will be some new inventory which we will have on the shelves soon. We have many parts for almost every vehicle made but mostly at this time we carry a lot of Ford parts. We are especially proud of our Nickel Plated SP Performance Rotor line of brake Rotors and Pads etc!!! We can provide them for any make and model, domestic as well as imported. We also have internal engine parts made in the USA, BHJ Balancers, Scorpion Roller Rockers, Special Cams and spring packages from Comp Cams, Aries and other well known names. We will carry custom rods and pistons, crankshafts, blowers, bearings and many other hard to find parts... New Or Used! Stop by, no matter what you drive. We will keep every one of you in mind so we can keep up with all new car trends and applications. We are also offering certain discounts for special items. Thanks for taking the time to read our Journal. I had to edit this 5 times due to a faulty keyboard and me.
Thank you and we look forward to meeting as many of you as possible.
Happy 2007 to everyone...
Cheers!!!
