Like the title states I got to sit in and drive a Z06 vette this weekend,
unfortunately it was only from the front of the shop to around back to do a windsheild repair!
man the heads up display on some of the gm cars is so cool !!
unfortunately i never really left first gear and did not get to get down on it!
I thought my transmission in my 106k mile saturn had a noisy transmission, that corvette tranny was all sorts of noisy and it had only 20 k on it! its a very high torque motor for sure when your cranking it up you can hear the draw on the starter i guess from high compression??
nonetheless very cool !! made my weekend also drove a turbo beetle with a 6 speed,
why do people who drive standard shifts act stupid and assume that everyone cannot drive their car?? 8 out of my 10 vehicles have been standard shift, i find it offensive when someone asks do I need to drive around?? Heck no I got it i'm cool like that!
just remeber folks german vehicles no matter how old or how new ya need to push the shift lever down to get to reverse!
