New Stingray and Jay Leno, and 5-0

Sweet Z06… MMMMMMM

American Guns is BACK, after being pulled for “anti-gun” reasons…

Glad to see Rich and the family back on – they’ve had a lot of bad press lately and lost the show over politics and anti-gun hatred..

Here’s one of the latest episodes….. even if you aren’t a gun fanatic – Rich has a little to say about Ford owners… watch from about 2:00 – 4:00 in, although you may want to watch the whole thing because it’s entertaining, and it may apply to you , if not today – SOME DAY!

I would have LOVED to sell Rich or his family a Camaro or new Stingray… well, in a way I can since I still have ties to the dealership!

Check it out, and all the episodes




Not a pretend Detroit Lion either…. a REAL LION!

C7 Stingray seats Vs C6 Vette

Like I said in my Stingray review – the C7 seats ROCK!  Here’s why:




Worlds Greatest Drag Race – with Camaro Z/28

C7 Corvette Stingray Test Drive…..

Thanks to a friend of mine, I had an opportunity to really bond with the new C7. The more I see this car, the more I am bonding with it. But instead of just a 10 second sitting in the driver’s seat as I did at the Chicago Auto Show, I drove this one! The first thing that amazed me was, I actually had to move the seat forward! I haven’t had this feeling since the C5, and the C6 just did not go back enough, so SCORE right out of the box! Everything else about this car is precision. You can tell by the sound, this is a Corvette. Smooth shifting, amazing kick your keester acceleration, and amazingly from the new seats, a VERY comfortable ride. I don’t have any doubts I could drive this car for hours. Even with my “larger” framed body, these seats are a win. I do agree with Al, the cars owner, that it is best to take your wallet out of your back pocket before driving – especially if it is like mine.

I didn’t track drive this car – you know what, I didn’t feel the need. I KNOW it’s there. The C6 was a very capable car. Anyone familiar with it will know as soon as they drive the C7, everything is there and even more. A new model is supposed to have improvements over its previous model – for the Corvette, they have succeeded. Beautiful well laid out gauges, comfortable steering wheel….this car feels like it was built around me. I wonder why people would pay more for another car and not have no where near the resume this car has.

When I got one of the first Camaro’s in my area, it was fun to get the thumbs up from people as you drive by. I got that and more. I noticed most everyone I drove by paused and looked at the car as it went by. It certainly draws more attention….just coast in gear and make the engine pop pop pop as it slows… draws them in so they can’t look away.

We took a few pictures and then I came home in my Chevy Cruze. But for a moment today, I felt like a kid again. Thanks Al for the opportunity! The Chevrolet Corvette is an American Dream – you shouldn’t hesitate to live it.

Congrats Mike on your years of service and for the thousands of things you went above and beyond on for Camaro owners all over the world! It was a pleasure meeting you – and I look forward to my next opportunity to visit you in Canada again… perhaps in 2015!


C7 Corvette – Ron Fellows driving school

A friend I helped with his new C7 Corvette purchase wrote me about his recent trip to Ron Fellows Driving school…. this makes me want to win the lottery even more….nothing would complete my bucket list more than getting to do this every weekend…here’s his letter…


The Ron Fellows school road trip went really well… no issues.  Three days out and three days back, to Pahrump, Nevada… with side trips to Death Valley and Las Vegas (to visit a friend I worked with in New Berlin).

Not sure if you follow the Stingray forum… I posted comments and link to a video from one of my track sessions there.

Car performed flawlessly during entire trip… 31.0 mpg on the way out… 30.5 for entire road trip (see photo of trip display).  Also, my car with Death Valley in the background.


The next generation 2016 Camaro……
