Remo,
I had no idea you were harboring this secret ambition to be a truck driver. And you, with your aversion to winter driving. Who knew?

A More Resonable Alternative

Now here's a C5 that I'm a little more familure with:
  • Sub mach - but still very fast at street level.
  • No GE Turbo Fans - but is powered by Lingenfelter.
  • Can't carry armored vehicles - but can crush Porsches.

Prescription for Remo:

Go south for the winter. Take your Corvette with you. Drive each day the sun shines. Stay there until the robins fly north.

1 fill up would pay for one of those rumored 600 hp Super Vettes! Dang!

Remo, whatever it takes to get you through ;)

By the way, that's a beautiful photo by the lake.

I flew those in the air force. There were many impresive loads that thing could haul.

One fun haul I remember was flying that thing with 18 cobra helicopters stuffed inside along with... (rest of post edited out on account of don't want to give away too much info on it's capabilities... never know who's reading)...during desert shield/storm.

That thing can really haul some 'lota stuff.
