Default I did some business transactions on Friday

I finally paid off my BMW and listed it for sale since trade in value is terrible on those cars. Finally got someone to come pick it up Friday.

About an hour after that I made a trip over to a small Chevy dealership in the middle of Kansas and picked up this beast. Been looking for an LS3 Corvette under $20k for a couple years now, but with a little cash in my pocket I decided I could expand my budget a little bit for this car.

2008 C6 Corvette
48k miles
F55 suspension
Longtube headers
Corsa axle back exhaust
I-1 procharger

Don't mind the incorrect Z51 badges, caliper covers or decals.











It will stay in it's current state for a while but I am pretty sure I want to do wide rear quarters and a wheel set up. It is miles faster than the BMW. I think I am going to get it trouble with this thing. And it's super fucking loud.

Automatic. Gross.

Regardless of the lack of man pedal, still looks like a lot of fun.

I was only kinda kidding. I feel like on FI or really big NA builds, people usually know something is about to give and dump them.

That's why a heads/ full exhaust c6z will be enough for me until I can't drive a petrol car anymore he'll, by the time I can afford it, we'll be off petrol.
