    Seriously? 3 choices? BF Goodrich Radial TA Hooooooosier Pirelli P600 This is what I can get in 235/60/15? Unless I look at the 245/60/15 then it's the BF Goodrich all by itself. How old am I anyway?

    What's better than driving my Vette? A new C7 at Fontana!

    I was given the opportunity to join GM at the stingray precision Drive event at the auto club Speedway in Fontana California on Thursday. Several different courses were set up for us to drive the car, including a short blast on the superspeedway. The new car is good, very good.

My mechanic purchased the motor directly from the Chevy dealer, this is the version with the hypereutectic pistons, aluminum heads, roller cam etc... as seen in the GM catalog. I have...

    Headlight is opening by itself

    My right headlight opened up all by itself on my '69. I'm pretty sure I can hear the actuator hissing. It's been doing this for about a month, if I leave it sit in the garage for 4-5 days it will close by itself. I disconnect the vacuum lines and plug them when it's shut will it stay shut...

    So my Dad is going to buy a new Vette (he's had a 1969 C3 which is now mine, a '90 ZR1 and currently a '99 C5 Coupe). Is there a performance axle/automatic? Is there an insullated convertible top option? (He's in the desert and needs to keep the heat out). I've got him convinced to get...

    Voltage output on a '99

    The local dealer tells my dad he needs a battery and an alternator. 1) Does the alternator have a separate voltage regulator (I'm pretty sure it's built in) 2) Is 13.2 Volts normal output? The car is ranging between 11. something and 13.2 max. So my dad says. He took the car...
