Chevy brings the Sting Ray back

http://money.cnn.com/gallery/autos/2...html?hpt=hp_c2

Chevy bringing back the Sting Ray after 39 years. Looks stunning. Yea, I know the youngsters and their love of twin turbo, helium powered roller skates will laugh and point fingers but in the 60s that was the car.

I don't like it.

It looks like it was styled by a committee and everyone's suggestions were used. There's just so much styling. I don't like the quarter windows and I don't like the back end. The '56-'57 front grille looks out of place. Oh, and a seven-speed manual?

I do like the quad exhaust in the middle and that the Corvette no longer shares its steering wheel with 95% of GM's other cars.

Shock and titillate me! I've got money!

Lee. The same engine in the Caddy V coupe costs $67k, so maybe in that ball park.

Where do you get the helium for that VW Golf roller skate you push?

GTI, Golf, Rabbit or Passssat. What's in a name? Still a roller skate with a model airplane motor isn't it?

Oh and thanks for finally updating the blog.

It looks like I've given HAP some new material. Finally, a break in the old routine.
