Yeah, but unlike the first <3 year attempt, this one's lasted 33 (come June 21st).

And about going OT.......surely you all should know by now that ANY thread in the E36 forum is subject to going OT with the slightest provocation.

I think it belongs in a body shop, so they can carve all that crap off if it and return it to the clean classic lines of the E24. That thing is "Corvette Summer" ugly.

Shameful destroying a nice car and adding how much weight in the process

Ugh. Wish I didn't look. This is turning into one of those "hey guys! Don't google this!" And everyone googles it, regrets, and tries to forget. Except for df who then tries to defend it.

Imagine putting that Koenig body on a C4 'Vette. Now paint it Glitter Red with Glitter Gold fade...... add some ridiculous tilted-to-port hood inlets so tall you can't see past them to drive. That's Corvette Summer.

^Really that is it? Based on CJs post I was expecting something real bad, but it is just a riced out Corvette.
Do not Google post FAIL.

What's up the the owner's inability to post usable photos of the car he's trying to sell? What is it with people?

Horrible, I know. I noticed that NOBODY posts pics of interiors or post mileage or the transmission type

Or they just flake on people


(I ended up not buying that coupe)

will.
not.
google.




i only defend *artistic* stuff. not that the stuff chad mentioned was what *i* like, it just wasn't as horrible as what he (and the others) portrayed it to be. trust me, i have seen much worse portrayed as 'art', and bothh the artist and gallery were as serious as a heart attack about it....

Wut. 3.9million miles.

Looks like a typo for 396xxx, which is still crazy.
