Seem like nice guys, just sadly, almost insanely mis-informed. The 928 of all its evolutions and years outperformed the Vette. Until 1997 that is. But if they had continued building the 928, it would have still kept it's crown. That being said, I will walk all over any stock z06 as long as its for the right $$$. Blown87, feel free to cross post that over there, as I am not a member.

Seems like a pretty split group, some have respect for us, some are just not educated in 928s and want to spew forth their petty ill-informed knowledge from hearsay.

Doesn't seem like too many of them do their own work. Too bad, this might be a case of more money than know how!

I just smoked a Vette this morning on the way to work and I come across this. Where do I sign up in the Corvette forums to let them know their brethren 'ain't' what they're cracked up to be?

Bragging about spanking a 79 200hp Vette with an S4 would be like someone with a ZO6 bragging about beating a stock 79 - 928.....

Damn some of those guys are cheapos. I'm only 25 and I can afford to maintain a 928 AND IT IS DRIVEN DAILY. Do Vette guys have the budget of Honda CRX owners?

i agree, very miss informed. Some of the stuff they said would be like me saying, hey isnt the corvette interchagible with the camero? WTF? sounds like few of them do any of their own work on their cars. T quote the great Mr. T, " I pity the foo who dont twist they own wrench! "
