If I remember. Maybe we really need to try the "posting pics of nekkid girls" to get more people involved.

Chat log from tonight's chat session:
Quote:
Welcome! You have entered [The Lobby] at 3:06 pm
[] 3:06 pm: and thre you are.
[Rich Z] 3:06 pm: Anybody home?
[Rich Z] 3:07 pm: Yeah, just got out of the shower...
[] 3:07 pm: did you try tugging on the wire to see if the tire started to leak?
[] 3:07 pm: you and me both got home about 10 minutes before 8
[Rich Z] 3:07 pm: Heck, I pulled it out completely
[Rich Z] 3:08 pm: 20 minutes is about the best I can do for a shower and a shave.
[] 3:08 pm: skipped the shave
[Rich Z] 3:09 pm: The wife and I are going out shopping tomorrow, so I couldn't skip it. Would like like the wild man from Borneo.
[Rich Z] 3:10 pm: Being retired, I don't have to shave very often.
[] 3:10 pm: yeah gotta keep her arm candy looking good
[Rich Z] 3:10 pm: Well, I'm a far cry from that......
[Rich Z] 3:11 pm: Wish that guy hadn't posted pics of that C7 Z06. Sure does look sharp!
[] 3:12 pm: yes it does. i like the gray.
[] 3:12 pm: i drove one last week. love the seats
[] 3:12 pm: not z06
[Rich Z] 3:12 pm: Yeah, I've got a cyber gray C6 Z06 and I really like that color too.
[Rich Z] 3:12 pm: You drove a C7Z06?
[Rich Z] 3:13 pm: Oh..
[Rich Z] 3:13 pm: Saw several C7s on 95 on the way down to Englewood and back early this week. Was visiting my mom down there.
[] 3:13 pm: 2014 2lt manual
[Rich Z] 3:14 pm: Of course, the drawback of being retired is buying a new Corvette is going to be highly unlikely.
[] 3:15 pm: hell not any better with me.
[] 3:15 pm: and i work
[] 3:16 pm: the c5 would make a heck of a down payment
[Rich Z] 3:16 pm: I doubt I'd get a tenth of it's value from a dealer.
[Rich Z] 3:17 pm: Maybe if I wanted to trade in the C6 coupe AND the C6 Z06.....
[] 3:17 pm: sell c5 private
[Rich Z] 3:18 pm: Not likely. That car has too much of my blood, sweat and tears embedded into it. It would be like selling off my arm.
[Rich Z] 3:18 pm: I've got it running REALLY well now.
[] 3:20 pm: yeah hard to give up
[] 3:20 pm: so you have a c6 z06 as well?
[Rich Z] 3:20 pm: Are you still looking at a supercharger for yours?
[] 3:21 pm: yep
[] 3:21 pm: getting closer
[Rich Z] 3:21 pm: yeah, my wife talked me into buying the C6Z when the C5Z was tied up being hacked to death.
[] 3:21 pm: i might ask my friend rich to come in one night and talki car care
[] 3:21 pm: detailing guy
[Rich Z] 3:22 pm: Hopefully he'll get a bigger audience than just me and you. I do need to put some sort of banner up about the chat session one of these days.
[Rich Z] 3:23 pm: Next couple of Thursdays will likely be out, so maybe after the New Year I'll work on that.
[] 3:23 pm: yeah that might help
[] 3:23 pm: yeah next year
[] 3:23 pm: so trade both c6 for c7
[Rich Z] 3:23 pm: But honestly, getting people involved here in anything is a pretty tough sell.
[] 3:23 pm: lower your overall costs
[Rich Z] 3:24 pm: Maybe. The wife thinks a new Jeep would be more practical considering some places we would like to travel to.
[Rich Z] 3:24 pm: Prices of new Jeeps are pretty outrageous, though.
[] 3:25 pm: get a used one
[Rich Z] 3:26 pm: Yeah, maybe. But that is a gamble. Some Jeeps get driven pretty hard.
[Rich Z] 3:26 pm: At least there isn
[Rich Z] 3:27 pm: At least there isn't any snow down here to contend with. Salted roads tend to eat up those things pretty badly.
[Rich Z] 3:27 pm: Of course, some yahoo driving one through the surf in Daytona Beach would likely do the same thing.
[] 3:32 pm: yeah but i'm sure you can find an early trade in
[Rich Z] 3:34 pm: I went through that stuff before I bought my '98 Wrangler new. Looked at a bunch of used ones but they all had issues even I could see looking underneath them. A lot of college kids around here, if you know what I mean.
[] 3:35 pm: yeah. maybe look at orlando jeep here
[Rich Z] 3:36 pm: Well, back then the internet wasn't all that much to speak of, so a lot of browsing can be done online.
[] 3:37 pm: yep
[] 3:38 pm: just got my hood back on my car tonight
[] 3:38 pm: got a bubble in the paint. had to fix
[Rich Z] 3:38 pm: Argh... But at least with these plastic cars you don't have to worry about rust on the body panels.
[] 3:39 pm: yeah. i think we got it all fixed now.
[] 3:39 pm: got to order the stripes again
[Rich Z] 3:40 pm: Been meaning to take my car to a local shop to see about getting my tiger shark bumper fascia painted and installed. Never done any painting myself...
[] 3:41 pm: too bad you are so far away. my friend that owns www.blastofforlando.com
[Rich Z] 3:42 pm: Oh yeah, got cracks in the paint on the hood that still bothers the crap out of me that I would likely get fixed at the same time.
[] 3:42 pm: and law dawg restorations would do it
[] 3:42 pm: he's been painting for over 30 years
[] 3:42 pm: did many corvettes
[Rich Z] 3:42 pm: Yeah, wish I was closer. Going to be a crap shoot picking someone around here.
[] 3:43 pm: https://www.facebook.com/lawdawgrestorationsllc
[Rich Z] 3:43 pm: Everyone sings a good tune about their qualifications...
[] 3:43 pm: make the drive and drop it off. hell i'll drive you back if i have to
[] 3:43 pm: he's the only onoe that has painted all my cars
[Rich Z] 3:44 pm: I'll keep that in mind. Appreciate the offer... Any idea on what a complete repaint on a C5 would costs? Same color as original.
[Rich Z] 3:45 pm: Just ballpark figure is OK.
[] 3:45 pm: not sure
[] 3:45 pm: he and i trade out stuff
[] 3:45 pm: but his quality is top notch i would venture to say 3500-5000 rough guess
[] 3:45 pm: http://www.desktopnexus.com/groups/m.../image/935448/
[] 3:45 pm: i helped him with that car
[Rich Z] 3:45 pm: Kind of makes it tough to get an estimate long distance like that.
[] 3:46 pm: and if you've read my fixing and painting thread you can see some of his work
[Rich Z] 3:46 pm: Looks like a nice car! I like the old muscle cars.
[] 3:47 pm: it was a project and a half
[Rich Z] 3:47 pm: There's a muscle car museum near my mom's in Venice that I've been meaning to go to, but it just never works out time wise. We drive right by it going from the motel to her house.
[] 3:48 pm: http://instagram.com/lawdawgrestorations
[] 3:49 pm: some of his work
[] 3:49 pm: is it that old walmart building
[Rich Z] 3:49 pm: Maybe in 2015 I'll think harder about that paint job. But to be honest, I'm afraid I'll become real anal about rock chips and crap like that with a new paint job. I want to DRIVE the car!
[Rich Z] 3:49 pm: I'll be having heart attacks during love bug season!
[Rich Z] 3:51 pm: Yeah, I've talked to a local guy who owns a shop locally that specializes in restorations. But I haven't seen any examples of his work to use as a reference. As I said, they all sing an impressive tune...
[] 3:52 pm: well you have my car as a reference
[] 3:52 pm: peruse my thread
[Rich Z] 3:53 pm: I would have to see it in person. I look for the smallest of details and flaws in stuff like that.
[] 3:54 pm: i understand
[Rich Z] 3:54 pm: Speaking of which, it looks like GM got it's sheet together on the paint jobs they are doing on the C7s. The ones I looked at looked REAL good. No orange peel that I could see. About #$%^&* time!
[] 3:54 pm: give you an excuse to stop by
[] 3:54 pm: yeah near flawless
[Rich Z] 3:55 pm: Hah! I didn't realize this chat system had a profanity block. Dammit....
[Rich Z] 3:55 pm: Heck, been a while since the wife and I have been to the Orlando area, so that's a maybe.
[Rich Z] 3:56 pm: Not sure I quite trust the C5Z for a long trip quite yet, though. Still got that intermittent drivetrain noise...
[] 3:56 pm: eh bring the c6 z06
[] 3:57 pm: maybe we'll hit up the drag strip
[Rich Z] 3:58 pm: Yeah, probably so. But thinking about it, getting a paint job down there would mean having to load the tiger shark into my wife's truck and driving two vehicles down there. Not sure about that...
[Rich Z] 3:58 pm: Heck, I consider the C6Z as a luxury car, not a drag car.
[] 3:58 pm: i think the bumper would fit in the c5. just lay the passenger seat down
[Rich Z] 3:59 pm: Probably wou;dn
[] 3:59 pm: all the way forward with the seat then lay the back down backwards
[] 3:59 pm: well crap i forgot it's a frc
[] 3:59 pm: might be tight in the trunk area
[] 4:00 pm: i keep thinking cvouple like i have
[] 4:00 pm: coupe
[Rich Z] 4:00 pm: Probably wouldn't be willing to do that because there would be too much chance of damage to the interior. Plus I have a brace running across the car on the inside that would probably be in the way. Yeah, the Z is different....
[] 4:01 pm: eh oh well.
[] 4:01 pm: well time for me to spend the rear of the night with the family
[Rich Z] 4:01 pm: Heck, that's something I forgot about in my list of mods for my car. Also forgot the MGW shifter... Duh.
[] 4:02 pm: too many things to remember
[Rich Z] 4:02 pm: Yeah, me too. Going to crank up NetFlix and watch some garbage for a while. Maybe one of these days some other people will show up.
[] 4:02 pm: i'm debating the tiger shark nose also
[Rich Z] 4:02 pm: Have a good night. If I don't talk to you before then, have a nice Christmas!
[] 4:02 pm: but still needs t ogrow n=on me
[] 4:03 pm: thanks and you too!!
[The Lobby]: has left at 4:03 pm

Probably not for me. Just got back from visiting my mom who has been put into an assisted living facility. And it's Connie and my anniversary. I think this is our 37th, but don't hold me to it......
