    Yesterday I had to run up to the Dulles Town Center Mall to pickup some accessories for a new Craftsman tool chest I bought. Weather here in the DC-Metro area yesterday was fair, but I didn' take the Vette out because the snow and ice we've had all week was melting and the roads around here were trashed.

    A lot of other Vette obviously felt differently as there were a ton of Vettes out. (Even got to watch a good race between a C5 and 4 kids in a bright yellow Mustang )

    When I left the mall, I drove around the back of it to pick up the main road heading back. As I was driving on the road that runs at the end of the parking lot, I happened to look into the parking lot and the electric blue paint and characteristic blackened wheels caught my eye. I did a double take and realized, it was a Grand Sport. Needless to say, I kept looking trying to get a better view as it was parked at the end of the parking lot. The road suddenly turned, but I wasn't. Luckily my reflexes were quick enough that I kept the truck on the road. I really do love that color scheme. One of these days, I'll get a GS with torch red interior.

    Hey be careful there Rob....As sad as it sounds, I do the same thing with just about every vet. My latest neck twisting encounter involved a sharp looking red C5 with tri-flows, lowered, and a set of 547 HRE wheels. Sweeeet!....BTW, did the C5 win the race????

    What kind of question is that JT? Of course the C5 beat the Rustang!

    The GS's are nice to look at huh? I've met a couple of women who are almost as nice to look at, but no where near as fast!

    When the day comes that you want a bleeder GS Rob, let me know. I'll be more than happy to help you out!

    Yeh, sometimes the only solution to avoiding accidents resulting from straining your neck to look at someone else's Grand Sport is to get one of your own... or TWO of 'em for that matter!
