It's been to quiet around here. Whats new?
You're too funny Tweaky! Very true though! But, if we didn't want the kids, we'd get a Z06. Johnson has a black one on the lot, and they said they'd take $15,000 off...But I passed.I would think that would be a bonus. :
Good thinking -- My son turns 15 on April 1st & we are looking for the 1st Daily Driver. (he already has a '70 Monte Carlo, but wont be driving it everyday). I like that no room for passangers thought....We'll see.My folks helped me get an 81 Firebird for my first car since it didn't have much of a backseat.
Too cool. I hope we have the same luck. We are a 1/4 mile track family. Spend quite a bit of time at Bandimere. He talks a big talk, we'll see in a year if he can walk the walk.Both my kids (son/daughter) got driver training like I did... We ran the wheels off the car(s) through the learner's permit months. Literally like 5K miles. Cross country, downtown city, mountains, snow storms. Sliding/spinning/brake thresholding practice on dirt and pavement parking lots. The only thing that makes a skilled driver is seat time. Both followed in Dad's footsteps with high performance cars from the gitgo. First cars were son with a modified turbo Daytona and daughter with a Turbo/AWD Eclipse.
My son is now 26 and a talented SCCA racer, my daughter is 25. Both love to drive and neither has ever had an accident and neither will own a car with an automatic.
Hit the road!
