Re: 800 HP

you could have titled it 800 HP and 6000lbs

Just kidding, they look great, must be nice to have 3 summer toys.

Canada post has came and gone, now they are coming again ...

Re: 800 HP

you got my hopes up. I thought you did something to the vette. but thats a lot of work to get it to 800 so I should have thought better.

both are still nice.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: 800 HP

most people buy guest houses, but you have guest toys - I like it

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

if driven like they are supposed to (WOT) - the truck. but for highway driving - the vette by a long shot. i averaged almost 27mpg driving it from MI to GA when i picked it up. i was amazed

i took the ol lady out for dinner last night, about 20 mile round trip, and i used 1/4 tank of gas.

6000 lbs, i wish. just over 7.

the truck is my daily driver, the car is my "toy" and the bike is a waste now. i have only gotten to ride it about 5 times this year.

my color options were between black and black, it was a rough one. after several milliseconds of deliberation with myself, black won.

is it at least a late 80's color, i don't want to be too far behind
