	"Impressed with the fun factor!" coming from a guy who owns a '96
Corvette LT4!! I LOVE IT!! That is one SERIOUS VOTE for the Coupe GT and
its overall ability. I also love my C-GT because of the fun-factor, but
you will find that it has so much more to offer that you forget it's
12!! years old! -like solidity and durability ...a slight uppercut aimed
at your vette. ;-)   I am not sure of your Coupe's option list, but my
'86 Commemorative Design Coupe GT has options and design features that
you may not even have on your '96 Vette! That's an exaggeration, but
you'd be surprised how many new cars that cost $15K either don't have or
have just recently started offering things such as cruise control, power
everything, hydraulic lifters, an overhead camshaft, and an aluminum
head. It is an overall winner and is still, after all these years,
competitive with most new cars. I can only imagine the praises I would
be uttering if I owned a urq...... if only.... :-(

	Why, I ask the list, is it that almost all C-GTs seem to have this
problem? I am one of the lucky ones...my C-GT was never aimed at the sky
and was actually raked slightly forward(down?ward?) even before my H&R
sport springs!
