    Default COS trip

    Send me your number, I'll put you in my phone and when I head that way I'll give you a call. I have some other friends out there that we will visit as well. Not sure when this will happen, but I need to get out there sometime this summer. Have you heard about RMCSC? Rocky Mountain Corvette Social Club is a non-club club, no rules, no officers, just a bunch of Corvette folks who get together to enjoy our cars. Go here to see what it's all about and join. Rocky Mountain Corvette Social Club Home Page We have been members for 4 years and try to make it out for at least 1 event a year.

The third thing that I am looking at is the drivers seat, the thigh bolster is "flattened" (for lack of a better description) a bit and I'm looking at...maybe new foam for that seat, maybe I'll take it over to the upholstry shop and see what they think.....

    And then the last thing I'm thinking is get school out (this coming Friday), so I can take it for a few drives....thinking Colorado Springs, so I can get some "picturesque" (I'm thinking Garden of the Gods) scenery for some nice photos ops.

    BTW Gregory, I haven't forgot about you, just haven't taken the time to get the stuff boxed up and ready to ship yet.
    Tom, if you do make the trip to CS and Garden of the Gods, let us know so some of us can meet you there and see the car. Also, contact Bruce Miller and he will photograph the car for the avatar for the RMCSC and you can use it for the CAC. I need to have him take a picture of one of mine for the RMCSC also. I will be on the Tail Of Dragon and CF (for the rest of us) on May 31- June 10.

    Yep. Defintely heard of those guys and is on my To Do list. I hadn't joined it while I was restoring my 1989 as I didn't feel confortable taking it on long drives yet. Since I decided to abandon that project, sold it and got the 2004, there's nothing stopping me now. No work needed! BTW, I took the top down for the first time yesterday as the weather was so nice. It was so fun I drove it to work this morning!

    Congrats on the new (to you) car Tom. She looks like a beauty. BTW, I just swapped out the GY's for Michelin Pilot sport A/S ZP's last week. I just wish I hadn't waited so long. These tires are great.

    I missed my C4 for a while after buying this one, but not long. I like the 02' more each day.

    Thanks D, I can't take credit for the pic...it's one that the dealership had advertising the car, I just stole it from them. But you can see why this car caught my eye.

    I did have the out-of-state-buyer inspection today, the officer who did the check was drooling all over it. I just told her "thanks".

    I get the same responses to mine, Tom, and they're inevitably amazed when I tell them it's almost 12 years old.

    Hope you're enjoying the heck out of her.

    Jane Ann, the original was 640 x 480, not good enough for a desktop.

    Question here, Is the Mag Red from 99 the same as Mag Red II of 2001? They look the same, but why is the 01 version called Mag Red II? Just curious.........
