He Couldn't Shake Me!

R8!

(click 'downloads' and see the video)

Awesomely good looking car, but I stuck on his bumper like glue. He couldn't get away from my Tundra. Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Ok, ok; it was in 45 mile per hour commute traffic.

It sounded like it had an air-cooled engine. Wonder what running gear it had?

Reminds me of a movie I saw, the name escapes me, where the good guys...or the bad guys...were discussing catching an armored truck on a country road, and it was pointed out that the weight of the truck would allow it to corner much faster than a car...........

Today's trucks and econo-boxes are going back to what the old Vee-Dub had, rounded corners which were streamlined.

base on the audi is 114k or so. the z06 (package and all) runs about 70k last time I checked (it has been a while).

I don't have the money for either. if I did, I would probably pay down my bills instead.

yup, like domestics or not, the corvette is just about the best value in premium sports cars out there. but, i'm a bit partial, being a GM guy.

used to be able to get the "toned down" models in the $40k range.

i truly hope GM resolves their issues and survives these tough times.
