First, a detour…yesterday my wonderful wife was able to make both vaccine appointments for herself with a national pharmacy chain. Ironically, her first appointment was to be later this morning. Of course, my first vaccine appointment was earlier this morning.
We went to State Farm Stadium for my appointment and as K Squared (our realtor) predicted, my wonderful wife was vaccinated as well despite not having an appointment. We both received the Pfizer vaccine and our next appointments, three weeks hence, have already been made. Talk about an early appointment, try 3:20 AM. We don’t care, really.
I am very glad we are five weeks away from “max immunity,” but still disappointed that so many people believe lies and disinformation about the vaccine and won’t take the shot(s). Ignorance is not bliss, it’s dangerous. Get Vaccinated!
This piece from Corvette Blogger is very interesting to me. It is a list of the fastest General Motors cars in the history of the Car and Driver Lightning Lap.
|1.||2019 Corvette ZR1||2:39.5|
|2.||2015 Corvette Z06 (Z07)||2:44.6|
|3.||6th-Gen Camaro ZL1 1LE||2:45.0|
|4.||2017 Corvette Grand Sport (Z07)||2:47.1|
|5.||2020 Corvette Z51||2:49.0|
|6.||2017 Camaro ZL1||2:50.1|
|7.||C6 Corvette ZR1||2:50.7|
|8.||2015 Camaro Z28||2:50.9|
|9.||2011 Corvette Z06 (Z07)||2:53.5|
|10.||2014 Corvette Z51||2:53.8|
The 2019 ZR1 has the fourth fastest lap among all 281 cars ever tested. The three cars ahead are/were WAY more expensive.
The #2 GM car is, of course, identical to mine except for the year. Oh yes, I’ve had some intake and exhaust mods done to add some power.
The time for the #3 car was with the automatic transmission because it was nearly a second faster than the lap recorded with the manual.
Once again, while the car snobs may disagree, dollar for dollar the modern Corvette is the best performance car in the world. Long live the Corvette!
