To be honest I don't know his name. I've talked to him a few times but never got his name. The car is silver. I'll be sure to get his name and maybe some pics next time I run into him.

6speeder, 12.0 in Alb, that is just nasty from that car. I love the small cowl on the hood of the V.
The guy I'm thinking of, I worked with and he had a black C6Z06 back in 07 that he let me drive. I heard from a another guy that he no longer has the vette.

I think it's probably a different guy. When went to the strip I remember him liking my dad's C5 and saying he wants to get a Vette soon. So that makes me think he hasn't owned one yet.

This guy is a little :eek:ldman: that always has a cigar in his mouth. Lol If you were to see him around you'd never think he had a twin turbo anything. He is cool as hell though.

Sounds bad ass, I love these cars. I got to drive a new cts-v around the ASR road course and it was sweet .

Nice numbers out of a nice car! Got any pics?

There is an older gentleman here in Las Cruces with a new V with an STS twin turbo kit compounding the factory supercharger. The car is sex on wheels and sounds amazing! He said it laid down 700 horses with a mild tune.
It's a sweat car but it was only running mid 14's at just over 106. He said it is more of a highway car :popcorn: Seems like a real cool guy.

Yeah he wasn't running too fast but I'd be willing to bet that was due to the fact that he was probably babying the hell out of it. If he let someone get in it and rip on it it probably would of had a decent time. Who knows though.

You see that a lot. Not just from old guys either :eek:ldman: There are a LOT of potentially very fast cars here in ABQ that don't get beat on. To each his own, but I RUN mine. Z06 and CTS-V, they are for Go, not show. :beer:

And that's what makes you a bad ass! Ha Ha that's the way I see it as well, especially with a sports car. They were designed to be abused to some extent. :headbang:

Very nice Wayne. Wish I was still out there to take a ride in the V. Glad it's coming together for you...
