    Push start

    In the late 1980's I lived in Oregon, and about 30 years ago I bought my first Vette, a 1968 327 4-sp. Private party, no warranty. 50 mile drive home, and on the way into town, there was...

    tires for 2006 Z06

    I ran through the stock Goodyears quickly, and am almost ready for new tires after the Nitto Invos. Incidentally, the Nittos lasted more than twice as long, gave me better traction, and I chose not...

    Jet Stream Blue?

    I don't have that. But I do have a DSOM Z06 with all black interior and 15,000 miles. Very rare color, and I think it's prettier than the follow-up Atomic Orange.

    Goodyear Schmoodyear

    My wife needs new tires for her 2006 Coupe at about 14K miles (steel is coming out). Anybody who gets 30K miles must run them pretty gently. I had to replace my 2006 Z06 tires at 11K. I spent WAY...

    Yes, I always use Mobil 1. Terri did get a DIC message saying "NO OIL PRESSURE". When I started the car to back it onto the trailer it sounded fine, so I looked at the gauge and it was fine! She...

    Zero oil pressure

    My wife's 2006 coupe came up with no oil pressure today when she first started it. She checked the oil and the dipstick says it's OK.

    DSOM

    Interesting to note that DSOM is the rarest color with about 5%. My Z06 is one of 282 in that color. The reason it seems odd is that I remember a poll a couple years ago asking what color people...

    Help! Oversize Nitto rears

    I got the Nitto Invos put on a couple weeks ago. The fronts are stock size (275/35/18) and the rears are a bit larger than stock (345/30/19, instead of 325s). After several hundred miles, I haven't...

    Help! nitto invo

    Hi--
    I just ordered Nittos front and rear--will get them on next week. I will let you know if I get the same active handling message from the 345s being 1/2 inch taller than stock 325s.

    My guess is No, not a mule, but an assembly line ZR1. I suspect the wording is just B-J routine legal bs.
