    ... as this is a Camaro related thread ...
    we better clarify for Corvette&new-Camaro Owner Jeffer2013
    that the sign in MikeysZ06 photo does not mean
    "do burn-outs for 2 km ahead"

    burnouts is not this one ..

    do burnouts is this one

    I kind of like the originals more..... Some retro stylings remind me of those cartoon portraits you get at fairs, etc. Talking the mini "cooper", etc. I've liked Camaros since elementary school. Started in 1976/7 school year. Soft spot for the late 1970's Z28......... I'm conservative in that you could get a Corvette new under $30k back in the 1980's. I think its crazy that some cars that could be fully loaded and under $30k are now $100k vehicles. I bought my uncles 1977 Ford F250 4X4 cheap. He bought it new under $5k. Now a loaded F250 touches the $100k barrier. Something wrong about that! Not taxes, etc.......

    I hate to consider myself old enough to say so ....
    Consider the price of a bottle of pop, chocolate bar, bubble gum ... etc ...
    and since the 70's, you will find that little has changed with those commodities but the price has rocketed.
    At least the automobile has had many, many goodies added along the way ...
    (although not sure about the Fords though - as a GM guy, I'll just agree with you that nothing has improved for $100k Ford ;))
    OK... I'm going back to my rocking chair and this typewriter-board-with-TV thingy that I'm using for this reply ....

    I still sometimes smoke cigarettes. Two packs was $21.66 the other day. A $20 lasted me all week in the 1980's. I'm sort of boycotting new vehicles except my truck. On trucks I'm a Ford guy. Their cars not so much!

    boycott the smokes (heavily taxed & healthier), and buy yourself a Corvette -
    and you'll soon be thinking just like the rest of us on the days that you have to drive the truck.

    You don't sound like you are suffering from any strain of Vette Fever.

    I think your prognosis is bang on Dr. Bixter44 and I concur that the symptoms are not conducive of physical Corvette Ownership .... yet ;)

    Completely understood and agreed and I am sure that everyone in this forum is wishing for and looking forward to
    your "words" of relapse into Corvette Ownership ... for when it happens ... Cheers & Good Fortune

    Thanks..... For right now just discovered Sergeant Preston is on my Direct TV...... I'll earn more police goodwill now and hopefully name dropping their co-workers will keep my zero tickets in BC streak!
