  1. Looking at some C6 Corvettes 2005-2009 - Z51 option 2010-2013 got rid of the Z51 option and replaced it with the Grand Sport. It looks like the major difference between this and the Z51 is the dry sump oil system. Question is, how manditory is the dry sump oil system for the LS3?
  2. I might have found a C5, but would like to have a mechanic do a preowned car inspection to make sure everything looks straight. Is there any mechanic who specializes in Corvettes in the Houston area you'd recommend?
  3. 6'3" - hence why I'm looking for something more comfortable I can drive to the track
  4. It's official, the Miata is sold! Buyer came by and picked it up today. Have mixed feelings about it. It was the first project car of many that actually served a purpose. Put a lot of time, and even more money into it. It introduced to the track world and you lovely folks. It's served it's purpose for 3 years, and now it's time to move on to the next toy. And the search begins! If anyone comes across a C5 Z06, keep me in mind.
  5. I think we need to start a new time trial class called Vetts & Berz.
  6. I should get a prize for the most derailed thread in TJ history [emoji23] Edit: typo
  7. Any recommendations on a shop in Houston that specializes in C5 and C6 Corvettes? I'd really like to take the car there for a preowned inspection before buying it to make sure everything is lined up.
  8. This is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen
  9. The Miata was a blast, no doubt. And the Corvette will be marginally faster, but at 6'3 tall and herniated disk issues, I have maybe 30 minutes of sitting in the Ultrashield before my legs started to go tingly. The surgery has improved things a lot, but not 100%. I'm just looking for something I can drive to my therapy sessions with. Looking for more cabin room that can support a comfortable foamy bucket seats without my head hitting the roof. My back can't deal with the trailer stuff anymore.
  10. I'm on the hunt for a new track toy. I've always had my eye on the C5 Corvettes. Love the way it looks and would be awesome to check it off my bucket list. My goal with the car is to have something I can drive to the track. The whole renting/dropping a trailer, loading/unloadong the car is getting old, especially since I don't own the trailer. I'd love to buy one, but space is limited. I plan on attending 3-4 track events a year. I won't be doing a full blown track build for it. Will stick to square wheels/tires setup and track duty pads. I've been researching the 02-04 C5 Z06 with the LS6 and the 05-07 C6 Z51 with the LS2. These seem to be hovering around my budget. The later model LS3 is a little more than I want to spend. Wanted to know if any of you have had any personal experiences between the two? Any feedback would be great.
  11. Sold! Will miss this car very much. I entered into the track world with this Miata three years ago. I've learned a ton on it. Time to move on to the next project. E46 M3 or C5 Corvette is next on the bucket list. Let's see what I comes my way.
  12. Thanks for all the feedback guys. I am going to continue to go to track events, but instead of once a month, cutting down to 2-3 times a year. Given that, I'd rather sell this and buy a fun weekend car I can drive to the track rather than trailer my Miata. I've been eyeballing some Porsche 997s. Just need to sort out the rear main seal and IMS issue and I think it would be a fun option for both weekend and track fun. The track is the only place I can think of where the background noise shuts off. MSRH has been a great therapist, and plan to continue to see her.
  13. Bringing this back from the dead. Have a baby now so won't have much time for track days. Would like to buy a fun weekend car that I can take to the track 2-3 times a year. Price drop: $5,000. Looking to move this out soon!
