    Well we've been looking for over a year now and finaly found a perfect b/w 97 GTS. The car is PERFECT, looks just like it rolled of the show room floor. Its stock with headers. exhaust and 3:55's. The only 2 other things were doing to this one is lowering and 20" 547 HRE's. Will keep this one as stock as possible to retain value.
    Pictures really suck but ill post some later.

    Take a look at the vett, it got booted from the garage. :headbang:

    Love them vipers. All i want now is a 06 black coupe and a 2002 graphite rt-10.

    I did not realize that the new Z06 came in white... is that the case or is it painted?

    Awesome Vipers!!!

    That is gorgeous and your lady made an incredible choice!!!

    I also own a 2006 GTO with the LS2 6.0L

    I just ordered the APS TT system from Australia and it should be a lot of fun. The GTO weighs in at about 3800lbs, but it is quick nonetheless.

    The TT kit as it sits from the box will put it around 530rwhp... the limit is endless!!!

    Great looking Vette and will share with some friends!!!

    Do you have any dyno #'s from the S/C LS2?

    we dynoed it untuned and it put down 457rwhp with just the blowere and exhaust. Im hopeing to see around 500 next time we dyno it. Im going to be doing cam, rockers, heads and long tubes next to get this bad boy close to 550-575rwhp. The car is amazing. really easy to drive and heandles great. Let me know if you want more pics ill send them to you. I got dozens of them from the whole conversion process.

    The aps kit is great we were going to go that route but she wanted more bling under the hood. The Magna kit is a great supercharger.

    I agree completely... I had a hard time deciding between that and the Maggie because DANG it looks sharp. I would love to see some more pics man... I love Vette's too! Shoot them to [email protected]

    The White Viper is cool as heck too! The Vette will be a beast when you are done!

    I wonder how a white viper would look w/ black stripes! I would bet it would look damn tight, especially in person.

    Can you give specifics on the tire/wheel sizes you're using as well as the method for lowering the car(s)? I'd be interested to know how much you've lowered your white Viper, and how, and if you have any issues with wheels rubbing the fenders/hood, etc. Thanks.

    Nice cars! You put the Vette in the right place. You should post those pics on the Corvette forum.

    im running 20x14rear and 20x10 front with 345's and 265s Hre 545r wheels. I used custom build coilovers(forgot what they are called)Got them from parts rack. The viper is lowere about 2-2.5inches and rub a bit in the rear. Not bad though The b/w viper will be lowered with eibach springs and lowering shims.

    Hey I just bought my b/w 97 gts from Chris at Star city motors (well 2 months ago), I see that is where you got yours from. Mine is also perfect and looks brand new! people keep asking me if it is just out of the wrapper?! lol

    Anyone who is looking for a Viper, i would recommend Chris he was very helpful with me and i got exactly what was promised.

    If you do not mind me asking, what does it cost to change every body pannel and supercharge the Vette? I am very intrigued and LOVE the car.

    For SuperCharging give Chris at East Coast Supercharging a call. They are in Cream Ridge NJ and are the best around when it comes to supercharging vettes. I think they charge approx 7g but don't quote me on that price. Tell him I sent you.

    Well i got the blower for 4,999 polished at a huge discount(6,990 retail) Installed it my self, super easy.

    The wheels and tires cost me around $2,500 all the brakes including pads and rotors were araund $1,800 all the body panels were $4,500 and i had to get an aftermarket hood which was $800 to fit the blower. Plus a complete paint job which i got hooked up on for $5k with the labor for the panels install. The body shop is the best in this area, i just happen to know the owner. Plus another $750 for miss stuff like emblems, trim, new brake ducts and such.

    Remmember all these parts were bought brand new from the dealer so you can find some cheaper stuff used.

    I spent around 13-15k for everything. Plus 51k for the car brand new. SO im in it around 65k. Thats about what you can get a z06 for but when we bought ours they were still selling for 100k plus and like i said we wanted white with a removable top and the z06 has neither.

    Hey, I have always said you need one of each. If it is fast I like it.

    I just wish all C6's looked like the Z06. They are just to plain and boring without the Z parts on them.

    I acutally thought it was going to be a lot more, especially for the body panels. I love the look of the car and having a targa top is amazing on a Z06. I can not wait to see the pictures of the other cars.

    I think most are apprecative of fine automobiles and the corvette has MOJO. Not as much as the Viper though ;)
