    I've had my Vette now for about 6 months and I gotta tell you, if it wern't for this site, I would have given up on my vette. It needs a good deal of work, and you guys have saved me Soooo much money it's not even funny. I grew up a motorhead working on GM's Fords and Dodge, but the Corvette has got to be the most fun I've had tinkering. Even with the knowledge I have from other cars and projects, I find there is a LOT I don't know about the Corvette. And the people on this site are extremely helpful when it comes to figuring out a problem. My most recent fixes were the cooling system and my Differental. I almost went out and spent a ton of money replacing the Diff, and both trailing arms, which as it turns out, are in good cond! My hat's off to you and this site!!! Thanks for all the help.

    Me too!

    I think Corvette Action Center is the best forum on the web. I was really fortunate to find CAC while I was searching for my corvette. Because of the information in the knowledgebase and the technical information that you'all shared, I found the right corvette for me.
    What I like best about CAC is everyone's kindness to new owners, especially when the same question has been asked and answered before.

    Thanks, Great Job!

    Speaking as someone who is just getting into the 'vette scene, I asked some pretty 'noob questions, and always got GREAT replies. Very informative and gentle on my lack of knowledge of 'vettes. Thanks to all the participants who have increased my knowledge and appreciation of this fine car.

    Thanks very much for this thread to help tune us all in to what this is all about.

    I looked very hard for a site like this about two years ago and gave up. I came up with a need for some answers about a month or so ago, looked again and found this great site. I have frequented a site, much like this, covering the other car type which draws my enthusiasm, for about two and a half years. I have said that the site was the best on the internet. Since finding this site and forum, it is most definitely number two IMHO, and closing in fast.

    My sincere thanks for taking the initiative to put it all together.

    Have a great day,

    Default Nothing but good things to say

    Here's another young guy that has been made at home here at CAC. I've meet close to a dozen CACers from the Virginia/Maryland area and am very impressed with their willingness to accept a much younger person into their group. I don't have much to bring to the table, but I'm sure taking a lot from it. Like Rob said:

    Who will take care of the older Corvettes once we're gone? The younger generations of Corvette owners will....provided we teach them those things that may seem trivial to us
    I expect to be able to teach my children and many others all about vettes someday, and I can say that I learned it from a bunch of ol' farts on an internet site when I was younger.

    GM's reported top speed is 175mph for the coupe and vert and 171 for the Z06. Z06 looses a small bit on the top end due to its gearing. Check the mags for tested top speed.
