Like Jim I am new to this site and in fact Jim was the one who turned me on to Corvette-Forum.com. I, as well as many other fed up older members of "The Biggie Corvette Forum" are fed up by all the bureaucratic BS and censorship that the mods force on members. They only allow a chosen few to run roughshod over people and when someone confronts them then they ban or give them weeks off like a school kid. OK...I have calmed down and stepped off my soapbox and now will tell you a little about myself. I am on my second Vette, this time a 2004 Z16 Commemorative Edition Z06 and so far I have 14K miles on it and loved every one of them. It is bone stock and seems to be OK for me even though I am toying with the idea of buying a decent 2002 - 2003 and modding the hell out of it including twin turbos, and all the go fast stuff. This will appease my need for speed and still allow me to maintain my Z16 in it's stock form. I look forward to being active...maybe too active for some people...in this forum.
