I expected the manual transmission to give me more trouble, to be a bit quirky trying to cram 7 speeds into an area that usually had 4 or 5. But this is the smoothest easiest manual I have ever...

Can you mod a LEASED car like that? What happens at the end of the lease? I honestly do not know. Just asking.

This thread has devolved from OP's question asking us to help him understand depreciation to the usual, "I am smarter than you about finances" schtick. OP's initial 'evidence' would suggest he is...

Because I'm not selling it.

1. As a buyer I would be very wary of buying a used Z06 with 4K to 8K miles on it because I don't know what kind of miles those are. It may very well have $25,000 to...

Joe, get a Novistretch. I know they look kinda lame, but they are cheap, easy on, easy off, and easy cleanup. I only use mine on major trips. The amount of bugs they accumulate is nothing short of...

Two of these: 23" x 13" x 11" side by side fit very well. That leaves the entire space under the partition empty, plus these are "squishy" so there is ample room between them or on the sides to place...

Just choose the right car wash: Touchless and trackless. There are no brushes to touch your finish and no tracks for the tires. It's just a flat concrete slab like a garage. I've got the foam canon...

So basically you decided to get married before checking out the bride. I know they used to do it that way, but times have changed.

You know, of course, that you will get answers all over the map. A much better way for you to approach this is to do a little studying. Go to the corvette site and study the options to find out what...

These numerous postings showing mpg based on the "last 50 miles" or the "last 400 miles" strike me as largely irrelevant. They are examples of cherry picking. If you want to figure out your real...

Yes. You don't need the Z51 complication. There are so many reports of dealer confusion over the oil change. It's a little more aggressive as well. But do get MSRC. A Stingray is great as a Grand...

You actually have two methods available to you. The first is the "Hill Assist." Press the brake firmly and release. The car will, in theory, stay in place until you move forward. The second is to...

Absolutely right. The C2 plus half the C3 were Sting Ray or Stingray. In 1977 the name disappeared and did not come back until the C7.

The badge is history, homage to the past. Generations of corvettes went by with no Stingray. They brought it back with the C7, and you want to take it off? Sacrilege, I say. These other corvettes are...

I think the rumor started with Tadge. He has stated, "Enjoy the manuals while you can" while discussing the decreasing demand for manuals. I believe in the US it's down to 3-4% overall with many...

Claiming that the roof off provided 80% of the convertible experience is like saying a blow up doll with 7 love orifices is just as good as real sex.

80%? Maybe 50% on a good day. That whole back half is still there and in the way. But what you see as a benefit I see as a detriment. Having a sun roof that opens is not the same as the vert...
