By the way, he chickened out of a truck pull contest. At least the Ram Hemi was tough enough and good enough to accept a challenge from a Vette.

Thanks for all the advice. I actually learned a LOT about what that hemi was capable of when shifting.
Hey man good to hear you learned a lot. The engine is only half of the part of going fast. Lol.

ok my first question is what school do you go to that the students have vettes, and second, you just have to know that you may have lost but knowing you could just drive over the vette like it wasn't even there is priceless.

Actually, I'm in college. And he's about 29, and had scrimped and saved and worked to get his dream ride. Heh, I should mention that before the Vette, he had the Ford Taurus I took on and beat. So, having been whipped by a 7,000 lbs full size truck in that little car, he was very hell-bent on revenge. I forgot to mention that one to "kevin." It's only fair I gave him a race.

Before that Vette, the best car I've ever raced was the Cad Esc back when I was 18. That was a high school senior's mother's car.

Lol, 'cause he's a good friend, I let him go this time. Should he ever try to pass, he's gonna wind up smacking into a turnpike barier.

Why don't you see if the corvette owner will just let you pull him up in the bed and drive him around piggy-back for a couple of nice photo shots. That will be less embarassing!!
