He laid the widest, smokiest patches I've ever seen! If you live in CT it went across Rt. 169 from Rt. 171. About 100' in first gear .... a 8' gap ... then another 50' or so in second. MAN what a MINT car this thing is!! Loaded, all leather with heads-up display that looks like it's hovering out over the hood, heated seats, and the best part: 426 horsepower & 420 ft. lbs. of torque out of the 6.2 liter LS3 V8! YEEAAHH!!! All black with white stripes down the hood. Just when I lost all faith in GM .... although I have heard of transmission problems on some of the earlier manuals. This one is a 6 speed manual. The shift throw is literally 3" long - it's the best shifting transmission I have ever seen. No, I didn't get to drive it, but I got to sit in it at least & play with the shifter.
But how many lawn tractors will it hold? And what's the gas mileage. Practical things can be attractive too.
