fuuuuuuuuck that's a tough one




Paperwork all signed and financing set up for the NoBo 16.5 trailer this morning. Will pick it up Thursday.

Fucking hate financing departments. It's especially bad because I know before I even purchase something that I'm going to turn down extended warranties, etc but I'm too fucking awkward to just tell them up front so I let them waste their time with the entire spiel only for me to say two seconds after they finish "we'll just stick with the factory warranty" where they then of course go on to tell me why it's a bad idea or ask me why. Pretty annoying but whatever.

I suppose I shouldn't feel bad since they're the ones being misleading in order to get the kickback. But it's always so damn awkward and I hate it since I'm not one to be a dick to someone in person when they're just doing their job.

Yay for 180 month financing!

Hopefully gonna throw as much money at this thing up front as possible but then again, if the economy finally tanks and we lose our jobs, at least we can just move out of our apartment and live in a trailer tax-free...

WickedSnake00 Got the trashmission torn down. Nothing screaming "this is the problem" but I imagine the whole thing being filled with silver goop and the clutch pack clearance in excess of 0.070" when then spec is 0.025-0.050" would be bad.

Scary.

WickedSnake00 Wow that's dumb.

I mean if you're going to blow it up, you should at least do it with some nitrous so you get some fun out of it.

That's what I expected, but in an interview a few weeks back the president of Cadillac said that the Blackwing engine is going to be in the CT6-V Blackwing only. Not even the smaller CT, nor will other GM divisions get it.

I can kind of see it from a packaging standpoint on the C8, but that sucks to have such a halo engine and only use it for one car.

I'm just sitting over here disappointed there's not a C8 with the Blackwing engine in it yet.

Now I'm just going to need to wait a few years to find a wrecked CT6-V Blackwing and a C8 with a blown engine, and we can have an all new kind of dumpsterfire.

Also Cadillac's naming convention is fucking dumb. There, I said it.
Sounds like the S197 people when the S550 came out.

Oh shit, have you even thought about how many wins a stock base model C8 Corvette is going to get when they start showing up?

Or will old boomers turn on them because they think mid-engine cars are for pussy socialist europeans?

For car shows there's only two generations of Mustang that exist: 65-69, and 15+. Both of which require copious amounts of chrome. No performance mods though, just chrome knick-knacks put on everywhere.

And of course if any completely stock C7 Corvettes show up, they win. Every category, even classics.

How to win a car show:
1.) Go to Chevy dealership
2.) Buy Corvette
3.) Drive to car show
4.) Hell, leave the factory seat covers, floor mats, and window stickers on it
5.) Clean up at awards
