  1. easy way out. nice, but noticeable.
  2. Jesus, lighten the #$%# up. Those comments, while rude and immature, are pretty mild. Don't be surprised if they're just trying to yank your chain.

    OK, so the car has no real problems, yet you don't like it. Alright, we got that. Some Porsche owners (yes, even American ones) will not buy a Corvette no matter how good it is. Same with Ferrari vs Porsche.
    "If this...if that..." We could have this same argument in another country for another car, and the patriotism argument would still be there. So what? Is patriotism the reason why so many Americans buy Porsches and Camrys/Accords every year?
    Some would argue that if the Corvette were made in another country, the view would be very different. So feckin' what? Evo magazine wrote of the Z06: "If it were built by Porsche it would wear an RS badge and command twice the asking price. It really is that special."
    This coming from a magazine that has openly admitted its holier-than-thou, snobbish attitude toward American cars. Difference being, of course, that they've driven the Z06 in anger, even on British B roads, and can see its overall worth. Have you?
  3. What's wrong with Patriotism. While it's awesome that the Corvette is American, I don't just like it because it's American.

    I love it because it's a great car, not because it's a great American car.
  4. Welcome to
  5. And for the record, I did not call YOU a Euro-retard, I just said that you were making the same arguments that tons and tons of ill-informed Europeans stick to.

    You make a good attempt to validate your arguments, and for that I commend you, but most do not.
  6. I'm going to go to Preview Day at Barret Jackson. I hope this will be on display, along with the Challenger.
  7. Which car won the test? I can't remember.
  8. And you have the right to STFU FAG! <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>
  9. I don't even like the Corvette much and I'm telling you to eat a dick.
  10. Ferrari 599.
  11. I know.What's your point?
  12. Thanks for hijacking the thread.
  13. What day is that? I doubt they'd have it on display until it makes its official introduction at NAIAS.
  14. Next Sunday. Jan 13th.
  15. Instead of eating Tasty Motor's tasty motor, I'm going to eat his tasty brains so he can never ruin another thread.
  16. Looks like that's the first day of the NAIAS press days as well, so I'd assume they may have it at B-J as well.
  17. TastyMotor is English.

    This makes me feel embarassed.

  18. There's no need for you to feel embarassed. There are plenty of American idiots who don't embarass me. Every country has idiots.
  19. there are a trillion more americans on this board than there are englishmen. this guy is letting the side down!
  20. every country has mentally challenged civilians.
  21. UGH

    it's the PROPORTION that matters

    okay, so like, 95% of members are american so you have room for a few idiots, whereas there's a dozen or so brits... the more idiots we have on SC the worse we look in comparison!
  22. Well now you're empowering his idiocy more! Just ignore him and maybe he'll go away. It'd be a win for everyone, he'd be gone, and your "british ratio" or whatever would increase.
  23. Have you ever seen the Corvette fans at the LeMans race in France? Take a wild guess what country many of them come from?
  24. I like it, even that color is appealing. Of course, that shit interior is still disappointing and I wonder how many years it will take Chevy to do something about it.
  25. you can pay an extra $10k or so and they'll cover it in leather. Doesn't solve every problem but it should placate the dash fondlers.
