    I think it's the Yugo 75th anniversary model.

    Can’t be a Yugo. Even a Yugo looks better than that!

    Oakie, If you ever get by I will let you drive it ... AKA... CHM Edition... Can't Hide Money... C8 Corvette . Went and looked at what was suppose to be a perfect 1969 Black Corvette recently and it was a bust.

    I've never been much of a Corvette fan. I just didn't care for their looks... Until now!

    The new ones are spectacular!

    I gave up waiting for Corvette to get to the mid-engine. After selling my 1968 Vette I bought a 1973 Pantera. Cleveland 351 engine, ZF transaxle, 550 hp at the wheels and car weight around 2700 lbs.

    Only problem it really liked aviation gas, but at that time I could drive up to the Gillespie Field fuel pumps.

    Madea lot of money on it when I sold.

    As I recall, the only Corvette I've ever taken a ride in was a buddy's '01 Z06 a couple years ago. No turbos or anything, but had been worked over extensively, and I was stunned how fast it was, and how well it handled. The current models? I couldn't imagine.

    I had a 1970 vette convertible. It was built for top end racing . Kind if a dog in the 1/4 mile but from about 90 on up it was a beast . Worse mistake was selling it to buy a truck to pull a horse trailer

    Nice car SF as with the others you have and had recently I am Envious. And very happy for you .

    I truly love the old muscle cars

    During the 1980's I just knew with the big horse power green font 165 to 200 hp cars lol it was the end of performance cars as we knew them.

    When the big three finily got a handle on new technology got the bugs worked out

    Hp and handling gas millage creature conforts all came together in one fantastic package old cars could never match

    I would truly enjoy having a new Wonder go like heck car but not going to happen unless I win the lottery

    But I am happy for all those who can and still keep the performance alive

    My family doc is a bit of car guy he has a cobra kit car but it's a high end one . It has a 427 side oiler buit up of course with a 4 speed all the goodies .he was going gto give me a ride but frigging covid knocked me out of that few minutes of joy I was looking forward too

    Was sitting at the hall of fame museum in charlotte with a group of fine gentlemen... Rusty Wallace, Ken Squire, Humpy Wheeler, and my Wife asked why Humpy Wheeler kept looking at me.. does he know you? Finally he spoke up and he swore we had met somewhere... I laughed and told him yes... The Charlotte motor speedway a few yrs ago. I bought a Cobra replica 427 and took hot laps around the track after the car show and swap meet. And you were jumping up and down like yosemite Sam and threw me off of the track and said never come back. I drove that car home 100 mile and got soaked from a rain storm about half way.

    Absolutely beautiful. I love the look of it and especially the color. Enjoy
