Had a medical set back and lost my access to the forum. Reestablished and I am happy, happy, happy!
Hope everyone is well ok and enjoying your kickass corvette. Made mine an 05 loaded manual coupe and it rocks.... black of course.

Thanks, guys!
Finally pulled the trigger on a C6! Love it! Can see at night. Got an 05 with 6500 miles all black loaded with everything but nav.
On closer inspection the springs were shattered? Think they jacked it up using the springs. Went with z06 springs shocks and sway bars.
Added a hurst shifter and when I can drive it is a dream. Happy to catch up on the posts will I was on the outside but wanted to contribute. Will post up some pics of my all black beauty. Loved the C5 but the C6 is just better

I'm not going to kid you I was worried about you Joe. Glad to hear things are moving in the right direction for you.

That black beauty of a C6 must be a blast!

Let me post up a photo for you my friend...its almost identical? I use facebook uploaded photos from my phone ...directly to facebook to post up easy on the net..

About the only use for facebook in my opinion..LOL

Thanks guys! Yep we have twins only yours has the LS3. I an really digging it, driving that is. And for it to be in a CORVETTE...what a life. All Corvettes are cool and we need not to bust on any model. I loved my C5 and would have bought another but this C6 found it's way into my garage.
Yes I went with a rock crusher after all my fat mouthing about the automatic. It is a blast to drive. The lights are so much better...It is a very cool Corvette, just like the rest of them.
Gotta say Buckwheat that is a beautiful Corvette, you lucky dog!

Thanks, Jim! Happy you and yours were unscathed by the twisters.
How's the Corvette? I am so happy to be back in a vette. Only put 1k miles or so since January but there is nothing like a Corvette .
