Went on the Angeles Crest Drive last weekend and meet a few people. I have an orange 2006 corvette, 94 trans am gt, 85 iroc and my wife drives an 05 g35. I also put a pic of my old cbr1000rr. Look forward to meeting people and doing some cruise.

Welcome aboard. Sweet rides.

We'll be firing up some more cruises this year for sure once I get my Vette back on line here shortly. Other members can and do put up and/or organize their own events as the mood strikes. It's a small, but knowledgeable and fun group here. Peace.

I think a ctsv would be a great family car. The g35 has been the best car have owned considering cost, fun, practicality, and reliability.

Well, numero uno is *probably* cam bearings. Dos is clutch that doesn't always disengage in a predictable manner. Then a bunch of odds and ends. It's an 82 I've pretty substantially modified with an LS based engine, T56, etc. When it's running, which has been most of the time after the mods, it's a hoot. Pretty fast like a modern car, not bad handling, but otherwise pretty raw and manual feeling.

A couple years back one of our users had a G37 TT, everything top of the line. It was a gorgeous show winning >500WHP DD. This was during the economic crisis and I think he ended up selling it for < $30k.

There's probably less than 10 in the world if I had to guess. I only remember two others off hand. Mine is almost certainly the one and only CA referred swap if I had to guess. Basically you have to be a masochist.
