Default had to let go of the vette ... :(

I had already posted I was going to get me a viper and keep my vette...but I didn't. I traded her in. I was heart broken. But maybe my next one will be a c7 or a z06/zr1. I still love vettes more than anything. Im used to waving at every single one I see on the road , now they dont wave back lol I have to stop doing that. Maybe I traded it in because my girlfriend who recently left me loved my vette. And there were too many memories made in that car lol (she wanted a zl1) but anyway the viper is a monster! And driving either one takes my mind of things LOL makes me happy. Its a 2010 camaro 2SS/RS built by a friend at a local motorsports shop. It only has 12k and all of the following goodies : big cam installed,American Racing headers,PRC double valve springs, TSP push rods, LMR intake, Dynomax mufflers, Hurst shifter, 4:10 Gears,and BMR subframe bushings. All work done by Laramie autosports with receipts. I justrecently called them so they could send me the dyno sheet but I do know it has close to 600 hp. It sounds pretty nice but doesnt feel faster than my vette lol here are a few pics of the new whips tooken earlier today when I washed em. (BTW camaro5 forum members are way boring. They never ralk about anything exciting like on the vette forums) haha

You did what you wanted to do.
I really like the Viper Look. The Camaro, not as big a fan.
As long as your happy, that's the main thing.

Good Luck

Well at least you still have the Camaro.

BTW, is it just me or is there a lot of Vette hating (envy) going on in Camaro 5? I mean, I don't blame anyone for getting a Camaro-- I think they're cool (even though GM, like Ford, isn't creative enough to come out with a genuine 5th Gen, they had to go retro. I'll rue the day they ever do that to the Vette. That'll be the effective end of the Corvette for me).

Youre right there is alot of hating LOL..I try to defend the vette and their drivers as much as I can. But man..The only reason i find it weird is because on that forum you have all the 6cyl and ss's and zl1's mixed up. you dont know who has what. And they all trash talk the vette..well most of em. There are those who respect em. On here you just have the corvette owners..no corvette is a 6 cyl LOL theyre all gorgeous, either fat booty or narrow body

Yeah thanks! But i must say its alot better when youre on here and you have a vette because you can relate to anything the guys post up on here. I do like everyone on the forums here. always so helpful with everything and what not. corvette owners are by far the best!

In the end, I came back to the GS though. I like the prowess of the sportscar over the brute force of the muscle car.

I own Z06, ZR1 and a Viper ACR Vooodoo Edition. I love each car for different reasons! Enjoy the cars you have and do not worry about what anyone else thinks!

Okay, I'm going to probably catch hell for this, but here goes. REAL MEN DRIVE VETTES. That's why your gf left. Just talking about selling the vette made her leave. It would make anyone sick. Camaro? Viper? Gag! That's like comparing a steak to a hamburger. A diamond to zirconia. Just stating facts. You should have your *** kicked. ROFL
