Don't thank me, thank my second PC and internet aching! I sorta drifted away from DC and CF after the peak of the C6 speculation, having a kickass time making photochops from various shots, from the very first spyshot s (San Francisco?) to the subsequent magazine shots. Now with this "embargo" on the Z06 pic I'm all giddy again to follow the details. And I'm looking for a C6 within the next couple of months. So hang on again folks!

I saw the illicit pic (awesome!), and also copied it to my hard drive. However, I didn't copy down the specs that came with the post. Could someone post them at least? I assume if the photo was the real thing, so were the specs? Thanks.

Oops! Now that i just read through the posts, I see the specs have been reposted. But my question still stands. Are the specs as valid as the photo? Are they from the same source, or just someone's best guess? Thanks.

Links to all of the pictures (that are hosted elsewhere) are available in many threads here at DC.

We chose to not DISPLAY, or host the picture. That's all. You can link to them all you want. We don't control the internet.

I just had these AWESOME baby-back BBQ ribs tonight, got them from a local pizza place. I tell you, the meat just fell off the bones, nice smoky BBQ sauce too.

I can't quit thinking about those ribs! I'm ready for a road trip to IL just for those ribs. Did this happen to anybody else?

PS Loved the z06 picture

Radical departure from the base corvette? Didn't look that way to me. I was expecting more. There are just too many things that don't add up in my mind. Why would GM pick that God awefull color for the hottest corvette ever? Why the same headlights? Why such a small hood scoup? I think this is a huge prank by GM. I call it BS.
