Back in the saddle

I'm from generation X. I lived through the hey-days of the original 5.0 I had a 88GT, 90 Notch, and 91 LX. Then I had kids. Eventually I had to sell them all off. Now my kids are getting older, so I thought it was time. I know S197's are yesterday's news. But having 3 kids and being a working man, a used 2011 is the best I could do. Only 18k miles. 6 speed Premium.

The Original 5.0 movement


This was my daily for over a decade. Sold it and still regret it.


This is my current daily.


This is my project car. A 66 Vette. Idle since 1978.


My 2011 5.0 Man is this thing RED! Reminds me of my notchback 5.0 but nicer!

Hey anytime you can sneak in a bad *** fairly new car and still have a decent daily driver and have a side project you are doing pretty dang good. Love the old foxes. Congrats on the new to you 5.0! Nothing wrong with being proud to pickup a s197 5.0. This is the perfect time to do it. All these cars getting pawned off for nothing so the owner can go get an s550. You just have to find one that's not been rode hard and put away wet. Seems like you did just that.

Welcome to Mevo, the Race Red looks like mine (except I don't have the 5.0 on the fender ) It is the fastest color.
