My brother blew up his SHO last week, so he was in need of a new car. He eventually wore me down and got me to sell it to him. I didnt really want to sell it to a family member, but I'm sure he'll take care of it. I'm kinda sad to see it go because it was my first brand new car and I had alot of good times in it.

The good news is that getting rid of it basically frees up about $600 a month (payment, insurance, maint, etc), so I can more quickly get my other cars paid off and start saving for a house.

For those who dont know, here's what it looks like. I sold it to him just like this.

I left the wiring, but he had his own set of 12's and an amp, so he didnt need the subs.

I would like to get the Mustang paid off before doing any serious hp mods, but I hope to have the loan gone by middle/end of the summer.

And he was trying to race a C5 Corvette and he blew up the tranny, it was a 93 MTX with 210k miles.

I like those wheels...they really fit the image and shape of the car....a rarety. Not that you wanna hear that now.

What kind of mods did he have? [/b]
Did he come close to beating it?


Sorry to hear it's gone, Joe
But, of course you can extend an invitation to him to join the club.


And we'll still talk to you even though you don't have a Taurus any more.

Sooooo, did he at least win? Even a partial win is good, but damn that sucks to throw a trans

What are you guys smoking, its a 350hp Vette vs. a tired 220hp FWD V6.
Of course he didnt come close to winning. The tranny blew up when he tried to speed-shift 2nd gear.

And he didnt have any mods, unless you count no A/C, no heat, bad motor mounts, risky electrical work, and numerous bondo jobs as mods.


And I believe the offset on the wheels are +42mm, but its been awhile so I could be slightly off.

Welcome to the club, Steve! That's cool you got the vette off the line.


Hope you enjoy the new ride, Joe had it fixed up really nice!


See you around.
