We work hard to keep this place civilized and friendly. There are no "seedy" places on the CAC. I encourage you to explore the site. Be sure to check out the tech center, history, education, etc. I suggest that you start with the forums for the model years that are of interest to you.
The comedy section can be a little colorful, but it is tame by today's standards. The Edge is a forum for controversial topics, but there is no flaming even in there. Otherwise, it is all very safe for family members. The Off Road Lounge is a general "Lounge" for members to relax, make new friends and chat in general.
I am new here but I was a very early on member to that other forum. I have introduced many people to it since my joiningg in January of 2000. I must say that I am disappointed at the number of rants against not only other generation Corvettes, but other enthusiast cars in general.
I love that site and many of the member there, I have the highest regard for the work that it has taken to bring it up to where it is. It is a vital service. I will also keep attending there. I just wish that there could be a little more fellowship. We own world class sports cars across all the gens. That should not be easily forgotten.
