:seeya:

I wanted to respond on another thread, so I decided to go ahead and register. I don't own a GTO, but I have an '85 Vette w/ ~375 crank hp/450 lb/ft. I've been a member on one of Troy's sister sites, Corvetteforum.com, for several years.

I've recently come to terms that my current DD ('05 Scion Xb), though roomy and certainly "different", is not for me. I've had it for a little over a year and, as soon as it comes out of the body shop for light hurricane damage, I'm going to sell it. Thinking about getting an '04 GTO since, 1) I can get one in the price range I want to stay within, 2) the engine is tried and true (though I'm sure the LS2 is no lame duck), and 3) engine mods are readily available and relatively cheap compared to the LS2.

It looks to me like the GTO community is just as helpful, knowledgeable, and fun as the Corvette community. It also looks like I'll have to learn to type the different variations of smilies. :cheers: :D

Welcome!!

Yes you are correct the LS1 does have a ton of modifications readily available when compared to the LS2. Good luck in your search for a GTO!

Thanks guys. We are all fine. Our house only lost a few shingles and some gutter. I just found a water leak in the roof about 20 minutes ago though :willy:

I intentionally left the Scion and my wife's F150 supercrew in the open driveway since they have full coverage insurance. Quite coincidentally, they are both have appointments at the body shop in a week or so. The Vette, her old Corsica, and my Katana 600 (motorcycle) are all under the carport, since they only have liability coverage. In the back of my mind, I was kinda hoping for a tree to fall sqare in the middle of the Scion. Oh well... :D

I've been meaning to get pics of the Vette for about 2 months now so I can put it on a couple of sites for sale, but things keep popping up and I haven't gotten around to it yet.

You need a Roof? My brother works for a roofing company in Hattiesburg. You should give him a call and have him hook you up!
PM me if you want him to give you an estimate and help you out with your insurance! :cheers

I admit I've thought in a similar manner before myself. When I lived in Michigan, the summers brought frequent thunderstorms, and hail was not uncommon either. On more than one occasion did I move my car outside hoping for a new paintjob. I am glad to hear you and yours weathered the storm. :cheers

No wonder our insurance claims are so high...............if everybody thought like that we would REALLY be in trouble............................ :eek:

Even if I was only thinking like this I certainly wouldn't go on a public forum and say so........ :eek:

And why would I leave two vehicles that DON'T have comp/coll in the driveway? So I can save you a penny on your insurance bill? :rolleyes: Tell ya what, next time we have a cat 4 hurricane roll through, I'll park the vehicles with c&c in the carport and you can pay to have my non-c&c cars repaired afterwards.
