    Hey Bruce,
    Thanks for the compliments, its definitely a "20 footer" but I sort of like that because we can take it out and enjoy it and not worry about a nick here or there on it. This one came out of Ohio and has the 3:70 rear end. It is a lot of fun to drive but does not have good "slow through town" manners! I have never tried the AVGAS but have considered it. Does it really make that much difference?
    I have always liked those Marina Blue Vettes, your looks great.

    Beautiful LT-1 convertible. I used to own the exact car, maybe even that one. Loved it and never should have sold it but I had college to pay for. Oh well, those are the choices you have to make along the way.

    The LT-1 I owned had 4:11 gears with no options. I used to run 20% AVGAS in it just to get it to run right with the 11:1 pistons. Miserable to drive any distance on the highway but around town was a thrill a minute.

    Bruce
