Default Anyone know about this car?

I am thinking about buying this. Does anyone know the former owner? I was hoping to find out a little more about the car.

So the perspective buyer's forum handle is on the questioned car's license plate?

I am confused..

I am not very creative when it comes to thinking up usernames and wanted to post the question. It seemed like a simple choice at the time.

Well aren't you going to feel silly if you don't end up buying the car

No, I'll just request a username change.

Suggest you do a google search on the license plate. You'll come up with Paul Martin and various info.

I tried that but didn't find anything. Perhaps I didn't try hard enough. In any case, I am no longer interested in the car.

I am not sure I like them. I think I want different wheels.

Wasn't going to say anything at first but I am not a big fan of those wheels either. How about some black zr1 reproduction wheels?

That's because I picked up this bad boy yesterday.

That garage is way too clean, come back when you have some nice fat oil stains.

I was thinking black wheels would be too much but I like yours. I was thinking of something in black chrome to give it some contrast.

Not going to happen. The floor is epoxy and oil wipes right up.

That's not my car. It was just a black C6 with Zr1 wheel I found on google. This is my car.

Perfect floor, white cabinets, matching tool boxes WITH books that clearly have pages marked. No a stain in site. That is a waxxers garage not a tuners. LOL
