    See, I am not the hugest fan of the C3. Was for a while, but something about it now is just off.. the C2 has grown on me though, especially when they're done up like in Fast 8 (Fate of the Furious) - man this is a gorgeous car: https://www.optimabatteries.com/en-u...fast-furious-8

    I'm not huge on the C5 either - it's wide hips and oval tails just look... wrong. Also I'm not huge on the popups on this gen. the C6 was a HUGE improvement over the 5 in terms of looks, IMO.

    In terms of track-only car, the C5 is a hard bargain to beat. In terms of looks, the C3 can look WAY nicer.

    Oh man, that C2 is doing it for me.

    "So you've done this before?"
    "Oh, hell no. But I think it's gonna work."

    Oh come on. Who doesn't want to roll down the street, thinking we are Faceman doing a mission for the A-team?

    The biggest problem is that till the last gen of the series & the original Grand Sport, that they were dogs in performance. It could barely get out of its way. It begs for heart transplants.

    yeah i think the C4 gets cooler by the day. its really hitting that 80s retro vibe. the LT1 6 speed cars are actually really pretty good cars. i guess good tires are hard to find for them in size though.

    the c3, what can even be said? maybe a decent car when it came out in 1969 ... but Jesus they went to 82, and were trash for 80% of there run.

    The C3 was supposed to die by ~80, dev of the C4 took longer than expected.

    10 years isn't THAT much longer than the normal life of ~7-8 years. The C4 lasted for 12 years apparently, C5 was ~8, C6 ~8... C7 - who knows.

    if no ones curious, i can stop posting these updates, but i figure at least someone is curious to "pull back the curtain" and see about others lives and choices without feeling judged or attacked for making different life choices. I'm a bit intellectually promiscuous so i often wonder about others lives and like to hear about them.

    but anyway, here is a poly update.

    My primary and my other partner met earlier this week. basically my life building partner and the woman i'm dating consistently. It was always important to me that they meet. I'm a bit of a friends mixer, i'm not a person who runs a compartmentalized life, and i like to have important to my life people know each other. it went really well. it certainly took emotional labor on all fronts, before, during and after. but it went really well, everyone got along awesome and even had some fun. purposeful discussions with everyone concerning expectations were important. and we are planning more events together, and maybe of the larger "polycule" with the woman my primary is dating. It was kinda a big step, but really, turned out awesome when the work was put in to make it turn out well.

    I'm also excited because next week we are going to hang out with my metamour's polycule, and there is a guy in that polycule i want to know better. I got into this through a lot of art people, and so most of the guys in this group are pretty art-centric guys. thats the way there brains work, and its interesting and cool, but its very different than how my brain works. i'm a pretty nuts and bolts centric guy, but this guy is also a nuts and bolts centric guy. kinda the first one i've come across. I'm interested to pick his brain, buy him a beer and hear his story. so im pretty excited about that.

    anyway, if no one cares, i can shut up. just let me know.
