    It warmed up quite a bit a while ago and rained a bunch to wash the salt off the roads here, so I decided to take my car out for a bit :rockon:. Ended up having my buddy call me to come take some pictures for him of his WRX, so I figured I'd take some of mine too since I don't have hardly any of it. Also took a few of my friend's fox while i was at it.

    thanks starfox :beer:. yeah, the first two were waaaay underexposed, so to even get anything out of them i had to bump the levels up quite a bit, hence the noise. i still think they turned out well though.

    thank you, i'm happy with it so far. picking up my cam and stuff for it end of next week. i sold my cobra back in february and didn't really plan on getting anything else, but stumbled across this and got a hell of a deal on it so i figured it was a decent trade off.

    thanks, i like them a lot too, not too great for the track though, lol. they're Ruff Racing R281s, 19s on front and 20s on back.

    no, it's a non z51 handling package, but for the price i paid for it, i wasn't about to complain. i'll just buy the aftermarket sway bars for it and some slotted rotors and hawk pads and it'll be close enough to the same for me, and at a fraction of the cost.

    car looks hot, try "noise ninja" for the noise and don't bump the levels so much, your highlights look like a crayon coloring book

    wow, i didn't realize how noisy the first photo really was until i opened the picture on my laptop! i couldn't see any of that on my crt or my lcd at home, now i see why you guys keep telling me it's got a lot of noise! i was relatively confused there for a little bit because i thought it looked ok, but it definitely does not on my laptop screen! thanks for the compliments on my car by the way everyone.

    Looks good. How is the corvette in comparison to a terminator?

    it's a lot different of a car. both have their pros and cons. one of the biggest things that i like with it is the shifter is actually in a comfortable position. you don't feel like you have to reach 5 feet ahead of you to shift the car. i'm definitely still a big fan of the 03/04 cobras, but i just decided i wanted something different for a change, and this is the first chevy that i've owned.

    **i think the seats might be more comfortable too. i drove the car back from maryland, which is a 10 hour drive from here, and wasn't even sore by the time i got back, lol.
