    Default Spring Cleaning

    The "Tuna Sport" hasn't seen much driving over the winter. What with temps below 50 and Pilot SuperSport tires, I usually leave it in the garage. Well, Spring has sprung (I hope) and car show season is starting. So, I pulled out the Tuna Sport this week and cleaned it. Here's pictures to prove it:

    It's 5 and 1/2 years old now with nearly 50,000 miles. The LS7 is still screaming and I'm still having fun with it. That's what I bought it for anyway.
    There's going to be a Corvette Show down in Lawton, OK this Saturday but the temps are going to be low - 35 at sunrise and, maybe 50 by early afternoon. The Michelin Pilot SuperSports don't like cold roads or temps below 40, so, it may stay in the garage. I hope not.
    I'm hoping the weather guessers are wrong.

    Seems the weather guessers are going to be right this time!

    I’ve always wished those clowns were paid on commission/performance.

    I guess I'm a fair weather show person. 40 degrees and 25 MPH winds were not fun. And I take the tire tread cracking warning seriously on my SuperSport tires.
    I did get to visit for a while and see a new C7 ZR1 and say hi to a few friends before heading home.

    I think that those winds were gusting to 45 or so.
