  • I know that lately, we've gained a lot of new members which is awesome and a lot of those new members are coming from other forums that may use vBulletin and their Private Message (PM) system. Here, we use the XenForo forum software which is (IMHO) much better than vBulletin. The "Conversation" system here is the same as the PM system on vBulletin. So if you want to PM another member, just click their username in a post, and click on "Start Conversation". To see all of your PMs, click on your profile and go to Inbox. Hope this helps.

2011 CTS-V Sedan
I've had my 2011 CTS-V sedan (Recaros, sunroof, A6, Thunder Gray) for a few years now and it's my daily driver. I'm about ready for tires and thought that I would come here, and I'll browse the main forum for current tire advice.

This car has turned out to be just about the most reliable car that I have ever owned. Note that there are NO MODS, and that I drive it every day, park in a garage, and am not in the rust belt.

Find Old 1966 Corvette?

I bought a 1966 Corvette new in Texas and sold it after 18 months at 23,500 miles. It was last seen being driven by a medical doctor to Chicago in the fall of 1967. I have the 13-digit VIN but don't want to post it publicly. It was a Nassau blue (the bright, saturated blue) coupe with matching leather upholstery, 390 hp 427 cid engine, close-ratio 4-speed, 36.5 gallon tank, A/C, factory mags, and all other options available for that car. I had switched out the springs and stabilizer bars for those of the off-road suspension, resulting in a profound improvement in handling *and* ride.

Those cars were known for having a short life because they got wrecked a lot and parts were worth more than whole cars. Good tires that would keep the car under control at full throttle on bad surfaces were rare; I had Michelins on mine but most people had Pirellis or Dunlops and the car came with bias-ply tires, so ending up upside-down in the middle of the road was a common problem, often resulting in a totalled car. But if it's still on the road somewhere, I still have an original key for the doors/glove compartment for the current owner and would like to hear about the car.

Is there a way in your web sites to find a classic Corvette by description or VIN?

Welcome to the V-Net!

My 2011 V Wagon has also been very reliable. I responded to your tire question. As for finding the Vette, try the Corvette Action Center.
