    Corvette Encounter

    I knew someone w/ a factory 91 Corevtte ... we did a small caravan up to a retreat this weekend up 400N. We were able to do 2x 20-100 runs and 1x 40-100 for a total or 3 runs. By 100mph I was 5+ car lengths ahead and still pulling. I have it on video and you can see from the passenger side mirror the little blue spec in the rear.
    However the driver of the Corvette was not too skilled on mountain driving. We went to Helen after the retreat yesterday and he totalled his car off the side of a mountain which I also have on video ... it's weird how life plays out. I guess we have to have hope that all things happen for a reason. We make our own decisions and we grow w/ each experience.

    Sucks about buddy wrecking his car. Is he alright?

    Good kills. Something to remember is that the 91 Vette's have the L98 engine. The L98 sucks on the top end - it's a torque monster down low though.

    Yo

    He's fine ... he's just depressed about the situation ... I'd be in even worse of a state in his position. He's into cars since he owns three cars ... now it's only two. He's seeing the performnace and value from Subaru and he's looking into a WRX but I would like to see him get a STI. Nothing too serious, it's just ideas he's looking at. He should be joining us at the Subaru dealer tonight for the STI display.
