Seriously, there are some great deals to be had out there on C5s & C6s.
Lol, financially I won't be getting a new Corvette, so I guess that answers your question.

Nothin' wrong with that. A lot of us started out that way ... and with all the aftermarket stuff available today, you can personalize and up the performance to the level you want/can afford. It will also make your wife's gift shopping for you perpetually easier - a useful sell point BTW.

I'm hoping with the C7 coming out, C6 prices will drop. A newish C6 GS will be in my driveway within the calendar year, fingers crossed.

Thanks for all the conversations

Wow...we have a couple of days for the actual Corvette to be shown. I ve been a member for 7 years and its amazing how many people love Corvettes as much (if not more) than I do. This is my 6th Corvette and I love each one. My first was a 86 black coupe and since than they just kept on getting better. However, lets hope this Corvette is better than the current and I have to admit the style has grown on me. I wish it was just a little more exotic in the front. I would like to see about 485 hp in it. I think that would be great along with the other refinments...

Looking forward to seeing the pics. The GS is a very nice package.

I've been trying to decide about getting a newer C6 or maybe getting the C2 I've always wanted. Time and the current economy have pretty much settled the issue. My C3 needs a little work and would probably get rid of it to get a C2 when the bonuses are more than a nice dinner again.

Meet Dozer. He turns 3 yrs. in March. He 28" tall and weighs 130 even.

Huskies are beautiful dogs. I picked a Malamute for the following reasons:

Bigger and stronger
Lower metabolism = not high strung
Better in the house (see above)
Great with children
Smart
Great disposition
Closest genetic link to the wolf (along with the Akita) and maybe the original dog
Aggressive towards bears...for running interference when I fly fish in griz country.

Malamutes are very loyal to their pack (family), although somewhat aloof. They have some other interesting cat-like qualities such as the way they play and groom themselves. Malamutes are very clean dogs. Like Huskies they have a high prey drive. Dozer regularly kills turkeys and grouse and eats everything but the primary wing feathers. He eats squirrels whole...he just crushes the bones first. Huskies can have blue eyes, which are very cool. Malamutes always have orange or brown eyes which are beautiful too. The AKC standard size for male Malamutes is 80#. Dozer came from a kennel that breeds large weight pulling champions. I don't compete with Dozer, but his father can pull 4700# on a sled.

He's an amazing dog...everybody loves him. And he howls at women.
