Corvette isnt really a muscle car either tbh
Yeah, I think once you have the ability to take a corner, you fall out of the muscle car category lol
id consider a corvette a sports car
but it does fit the actual definition of a muscle car.
"Muscle car is an American term for high-performance cars, usually rear-wheel drive and fitted with a large and powerful V8 engine. "
as does the mustang but thats always been considered a pony car
Definition aside, when I think muscle car I think of a big block american car that'll pin you to your seat from stoplight to stoplight. Something big and heavy that's built to go fast in a straight line.
The vette will set you back in the seat for sure.
5.7l v8 405hp 405tq
For a big car its really not that heavy though at 3000ish
I dynoed it 2 weeks ago and it hit 345/340 and it makes 300ft/lbs tq at 2300rpm
and they perform well in the corners too!
Really well with his new coilovers!
I rented a 2019 Stingray while in Florida recently. It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately the top of the window is in my field of vision and I have to stoop down to see anything like traffic lights or road signs.
I guess my mid-life crisis will require a different screaming yellow vehicle. :P
I took my nephews miata out the the windshield frame covered stoplights when I was waiting for them.
Never thought that would be such a pain in the ass. Ended up looking over the windshield
Had a busy weekend at this years Maritime Tattoo Festival. Got to snag an amazing piece with a fabulous artist. Super happy and a great experience!
Now onto the other side next week
wow that work looks incredible
Thanks. About 12 hrs over 2 days (bulk on day one). Really great experience and my artist was amazing. Super great guy! Josh McDougall from Elevated Ink -Toronto.
I’m not trying to be an ass, I’m honestly just curious because I don’t have tattoos, and anyone I know with them is like a home made prison special deal. But I gotta ask, do tattoos of that magnitude have any kind of lifespan? Or if done right will it keep its colour 20 years from now? It looks great!
If done right they will last a very long time
Car spent the week at Hooked on Detailing. Paint correction, Xpel wrap and some CeramicPro
Looks good! How was the cost?
About three car ramp sets.
is that the before or after?
lol, you're not far off
I got a quote for my jetta a few years ago, was $2grand.
They do pretty spectacular work
As mentioned, yes, if done right - they will last the test of time. I've got some great work and some not so great work but I've certainly learned a lot of the years. This one was done really well-even if I'm biased. It should hold up.
I've been busy working on the last of the inside cosmetics and renos for the house before it goes up for sale later this summer. Tore up the floor in the dining room due to water damage that is now fixed, painted over the terrible burnt orange color to a lighter grey. Still need to bust up the tile by the back door and lay new flooring. Night and day difference.
And then had to throw in a pic of the kids! <3
i had my whole house painted except the master bedroom before we moved in
so we did the master bedroom a few weeks ago, now i remember why i paid someone else to do it, because painting SUCKS
When we were selling our house in Halifax, we were touring the house with a potential realtor. When we hit the master bedroom, she made a comment about how poor the paint job was in there and how we should never hire whoever painted that room to paint anything again. *I* painted the master bedroom.
I now have a *never have to paint* get out jail free card for life.
I too have been banished from the paintbrush after apparently staining a single rail on the deck wrong. Darn!
i liked staining my deck
also what is up with the weather here? i spent mon-tues in cape breton/ antigonish and it was like 25 there, yesterday in Moncton it was warm and sunny, today warm and rainy, and i come back this afternoon to cold rainy bullshit.
Seriously needed some beers and bbq with the besties after a rough few days.
We were there tonight for the first time. A+ will go again
Had a great day with the kids, first ATV adventure of the season with Parker, glad the burn ban is finally lifted. Then the boys enjoyed some afternoon sun in the sandbox.
Another great day with the Boys! My wife was at work which kinda sucked but we still made the best of a great Father's day! McDonalds, then got Parker his first ATV!
This lovely beast made my tummy very happy!! <3
