So I've been offered by a dealership that's struggling to move Corvettes a direct trade no questions asked if they can find my perfectly spec'ed Corvette or close to it.

 

Non negotiable requirements for me, Grand Sport, Z07 Pack, Competition seats, manual trans.  They said if they can find one like that in a 1LT trim they'd give me a buzz.  I'm not 100% sure how I feel about this yet...

The GT350 is a recent vehicle without the heritage of being owned by douches, plus it is still at least a Mustang with decent practicality. The corvette is built solely to stroke the ego of its owner.

Haha actually I have a pair of Ray Ban RB3183, Oakley Flak 2.0, Oakley Flak Jacket, Oakley Gascan, and two pairs of knock of Wayfares from my Corsa sponsor packet.

 

Going out I usually wear my Ray Bans.  For running I wear my Flak jackets.  Casual, driving/racing, and every day use, I wear my Flak 2.0's.  I rarely wear the Gascans though.  They just don't fit my face well.

 

Aviators don't fit my face well.  I have a relatively small nose bridge.

I thought about getting Ray Ban Scuderias but two problems: A. I'm not a Ferrari owner and B. I'm not a douche.

The GT350 is a recent vehicle without the heritage of being owned by douches, plus it is still at least a Mustang with decent practicality. The corvette is built solely to stroke the ego of its owner.

I mean.... I guess?

 

I kinda disagree, especially because the heritage of mustang owners is for sure worse than that of Vette owners. We like to do crazy burnouts at stop lights, run people over, just be general douche canoes.

 

But the point here is Nick is an autoX guy, for that purpose who cares what people think of your car, you want the best weapon for the task. I am not sure which is better in that realm, but I want to say a Z07 stingray would be hands down. The Grand Sport is kinda amazing.

 

But.... The voodoo is special sauce, its a Shelby, not just a Ford, it has some serious heritage that is more special then "just the new corvette that happens to kick ass". If I had the choice between both, that would be a seriously difficult first would problem to solve.

Having the best weapon puts you in the class where your competitors also have the best weapon. Now your margin for error has shrunk to infinitesimal levels.

The GS Z07 is a better track car, let's not kid ourselves.  But there's more to it than that as well.  Thankfully for me, SS class is loaded with a bunch of geezers who are afraid of the gas pedal ha.

 

On that note, if it weren't for my surgery I need, I could hvae been on pace to win CAM-C this year in my region. :(

Oh I got passed by a Vert Stingray this morning.  He was probably late 30's.  Completely ignored me like you wouldn't believe.  The FEAR is real! lol

Yea having the best weapon puts you in that class, but that's what you want! Who cares if you win when you know your car is better. Go up against the best, with the best, and see what happens! It's not about winning, it's about the fun and the experience. Winning is just s bonus.

Sux you can't get Cam-C. This is why I don't even bother autoXing. I would be in Cam-C Lolololol.

I'm confused. I thought you said you think with the Z07 he would be up against a lot of other top notch cars where his car wouldn't have an advantage anymore. Vs his 350 where is was the top dawg in the class.

Either way, I agree with what you said here completely lol.
