So let me get this right... GM are calling us Gay .

Well it was also designed so it wouldn't have the cooling problems of the Z06 on the track

No problem. You can congratulate me!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Hey Chuck

I don't know if you watch The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime ( the old BBC Top Gear Twats) but this weeks episode, Clarkson drives a ZR1 around a track . This program is funny and worth a watch.

so I haven't been on the forum in forever but Chuck and I were exchanging messages about him visiting the new baby at the detail shop and he texted that he was 'listing after it earlier'...I commented spellcheck actually got one right. His gait is a little off to one side or the other, depending on what his back or his foot is doing at the time, so if he's lusting after his new car in a slanted fashion it's an ideal explanation. Glad your wheels are finally home big man. Enjoy!
