Well I was thinking of trading in my 07 for an 08. Maybe I should save my pennies and wait a year. That beast is supposed to be $100k+.

People on here seem to think that just cuz you post something that means you always believe it... I was posting articles that I thought would generate healthy interesting debate.... I said it a # of times.. I don't believe everything ... most.. half.. i don't know what % of all the conspiracy bs I believe..
Probably less than half.. (and the majority of that not being that the govt did it stuff.. rather that the govt had previous intelligence that it or something very similar was about to happen and used 9.11 to their own ends...)

case in point...
If you posted a link to an article that we are going to bomb iran doesn't mean you want us to bomb iran.. or that you know we are going to do it.. Just saw an article and thought it would make for some interesting discussion.. or you thought people should see it.. right?

In any case...
I imagine Jalopnik is probably onto something here.. They tend to scoop stuff first pretty often

It was a sad day when your dad sold that ZR1, and I know he doesn't like the SMG M5 but please convince him that the new 6 speed M5 will be a superior car to the the new Z06.

Lots (and I mean LOTS) of love for the M5...
That said... The fact that the 6 speed is actually slower to 60 than the auto is just a travesty.

It is quite common on high end sports cars these days. The car can shift faster in sports mode than any person with a manual trans. I did not see in the article but will the Vette have paddle shifters similar to a SMG.

OK, how about we "know" cops are looking for us. It is amazing how paranoid I get when tooling around in it.
