I like the timing issue... it fits and considering the changes made to the TC, continues.

if you wait, it might not be until Tuesday...

First morning with gloom in days and the breeze and cooler temps show it! yay!

Been busy... went to San Diego last weekend... drove the C6 and got about 20 mpg on the congested 405 and 5 freeways. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis in the Marina district, downtown. Lovely experience. The hotel restaurant, Marina Grill, was FABULOUS.

The interesting fact, the valet service only has about 8 folks, out of 45 total staff, that can drive a stick!! According the the valet manager, some hotels won't even valet cars with sticks!!! damn...

The race, officially under the banner of the WEC, should be on MotorTrend TV for much of the race.

I hope.

ok... time is now available.

The reality is this... age of the car is now conspiring against you. The audio system is one of the first major components to take a shit.

Cars are a harsh environment. Temperature, humidity, vibration... it all adds up to a short lifespan. Speakers dry rot, CD drives atrophy, amps wear out.

And Bose, in general, is not immune... in fact, their long term durability flat out sucks, even for home audio.

Save your pennies, you have time, because, as I said, most of these units are not available.

I have much of the hardware needed to upgrade my OEM system (Delco, not Bose). But haven't gotten to it... a blown up knee has killed me.

However, good aftermarket stuff will fit in the car with minimal mods, but will sound exponentially better than the Bose.

I have to admit, I have rather expensive tastes in audio. I have been doing audio for 45 years and have learned a few things:

1. The best is normally worth it. It lasts longer and sounds better

2. The best is not automatically the most expensive

Much depends on your taste in music, but the truth is, the internal amp of a head unit is not enough.

First off, I would gut the entire Bose system. As I said, it ain't getting younger.

For the front speakers, I got Morel 3-way components. You may not want that, so a nice 2-way system could fit just as well. These are the ones I got:

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_210VIR603/Morel-Virtus-603.html

There is a little speaker in the B-pillar. If you want to use that, it can be powered by the head unit, no problem. It's just adding ambience anyway... but you will need an amp for the front stage, I like these:

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_161ACM23 ... l-ACM-2-300.html?tp=35757

If you decide to go 4 channel, 2 of those, or, 1 four channel:

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_210MPS44 ... l-MPS-4-400.html?tp=35782

But there are others that should do well without breaking the bank... just avoid the junk brands. Morel, Focal, Hertz, MB Quart, JL Audio, Alpine and Kenwood are the best brands.

For the bass, the Bose equalization was junk anyway, so a nice sub would be a huge benefit. I would look at one of the smaller sub boxes with a built in amp. Something like this would do the trick:

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_113KSCSW ... wood-KSC-PSW8.html?tp=114

I like JL Audio subs, hate their amps. They sound ok, just not very durable.

A few brands to avoid... MTX, Rockford-Fosgate (they were world class, but are now living off a past greatness), Boss, Dual, Jensen, Soundstream (again, past greatness), Sony (sounds great, not super durable), Pioneer (sounds muddy, never have liked their sound quality). Stay clear of the cheap crap... The $125 head units are not where you want to be.

All of this is a suggestion and a reference point. Not a hard fast rule.

As I said, I have been doing audio since I was a kid. I didn't understand it then, but it became obvious that I had a unique situation... I could hear things no one else could. I would walk into the department store electronics dept and hear all these high-pitched squeals... at times, it was painful, but I found out later it was either failing horizontal output transistors, or, weak power supplies.

As I got older, I learned that cheap audio gave me a headache. Cheap audio gets harsh, due to the junk components in the amps. This is why I spend money... I don't buy much, but when I do, it's the best I can afford.

Great pics, John!!!

The first pic, the black C2 and C3... there is no way in hell that's original paint... none. The factory acetates from that era looks like crap when new, and didn't age worth a crap. They look WAY too lovely!!!

The old Malibu has aged much better than I ever expected. They look modern today. I am a fan of the Grand Prix and the Cutlass! I would LOVE to find one of the super rare GPs, with a 455 and 4spd. They made a few, I don't remember how few... saw a 1976 Buick Regal in SCM a couple of years back, it was all white, but had a 260ci V8 and a 5spd manual. It was being billed as a fuel economy special. I kinda see it as a potentially great highway car.

The launch edition is a fave, I loved that Bowling Green Metallic, and I saw a couple at Long Beach, it's aging well. Very well. Great colour on the C7.

Again great pics, thanks for sharing!!!

The C8.R was FAST. I mean FAST. All weekend they were flat hooked up!

A rare and unusual pit stop mistake - a lug nut went sub-orbital when they left the pit box... said lug nut then bashed the radiator of the car behind, damaging it. Luckily, no one was hurt, but the Vette did have to serve a drive thru penalty.

The upside? No chance of a BoP change before Monterey next month!

The weather on race day was lovely, mid-70s... on Friday? Convection oven! It was nearly 100F!!!! The tent was ok, but stiflingly hot. No breeze, but at least shade.

My knee did limit my roaming. The grassy areas are very uneven, so I just hung out in the corral.

The corral was very nicely attended. It was a full house, about 90 Vettes, I would guess. maybe 100. I didn't count the parking spaces. The corral is located in the marina, behind the start finish line. In short, the BEST parking in the entire track space. Period. End of discussion.

A few random thoughts....

* Hotels are never a problem in LA... just don't expect a deal in Long Beach. There are nearby towns that simply won't be aware there is a race. Amazing, but true.

* Weather is typically lovely, but we are expecting a heatwave... and that will suck. Friday? 90! Saturday? 75! Tuesday? 65 and rain. Welcome to SoCal.

* Traffic sucks, so if you do plan to come, make sure you have ample travel time

* BRING YOUR CORVETTE... and plan ahead. I got the last Corral passes, and I bought 2 months ago. However, Corral parking is the BEST. PERIOD. It is very close to the start finish line. When watching aerial shots, look for a big white tent, it's near the start finish line, behind the grandstands and just outside the track, in the marina parking lot. That tent is the corral. You might even see a bunch of Vettes parked there!

I can only imagine your angst.

Last summer, some tweaker decided to break into our Suburban. They didn't get anything but I felt so violated. Pissed didn't cover it.

They did screw up the steering column quite nicely, tho...

I hope you get the car back!!! But in my experience (8+ years working in law enforcement), your car was targeted. Someone wanted it. Period. I am guessing its been given a "new" VIN and is long gone. I hope I am wrong, but that's a thing.

I am so very sorry to hear!

I assume you alerted the police? that is the best thing you can do. It won't be able to leave the country once the VIN has been recorded in the stolen vehicle database.

Any security cameras? Traffic cameras?

I hope you get it back.

It was a great result for Corvette! The team ran like a Swiss watch the entire event!

A note... IMSA used to do corner flags... then swapped to full course. I asked Doug Fehan about this. He stated that the drivers were NOT honouring the corner flags, so... full course it is.

Working from home!

It's nearly 80... we are in a heat watch for the next few days.

Ordered tickets for the Long Beach GP... got the LAST Corvette Corral pass for Saturday! Whew.

Sadly, thanks to COVID and Bastet's health issues, no Sebring again. I am really hoping things settle down next year!

that pic is scary shit... glad all is ok!!!

Sunny day... huge police presence... there was a robbery at a nearby Subway last night, followed by an armed assault about a block away, followed by a several hour long manhunt with helicopters, police and such. I have no idea if the criminal element has been found... apparently, he had a rifle.

Hi gang!!

It's Friday... and here in SoCal, it's sunny and mid-60s. Might even touch 70 by Sunday. Yes, you can hate me.

I bought a new electric toothbrush... the Oral B io 9. It has AI... it has Bluetooth... it speaks several languages... it is smarter than me. Tech has reached a new nadir...

Quiet day in LA... a bit cloudy and cool.

Lotsa work to do... but nothing outrageous or anything like that.

It's sunny and in the 60s here today... had some more rain over the weekend. Just enough to keep everyone inside. Did do a run up to Simi Valley on Saturday.

Pretty low keyed three day weekend!

Wow. 10 years already? I've been here 10 1/2 years as well. I remember when you came to my old house that we lived in for 28.


I remember the old house! That's been a long time ago, now... gee...

We are in no position to pay off our house, but... it has nearly doubled in value since we bought it 10 years ago. Gotta love the totally insane SoCal housing market.

Thanks to that, we are, on paper, millionaires... the emphasis is "on paper".

Not much going on... traffic near the office was insane. Trucks were backing up the cross street, making getting in crazy!!

Last night, a firetruck was down the street. Don't know why, just hope everyone is ok.

Quiet weekend ahead. Need to run some errands tomorrow, nothing big tho.

Eagles are playing the Buc's on Sunday. Somehow, they got their shit together and made the playoffs. Making it was amazing, if they can win this game, it would be a near upset.

Weather? Warm today, 72 outside... but windy and rain is in the forecast for the weekend. I would love to get the Vette washed. It is rather icky looking... it's been since November, thanks to our own weather. It has this nasty brown sheen of mud all over it.

howdy gang!

It's Thursday here in SoCal! And it's cloudy and cooler. It had been up into the 70s the last few days, but we have dipped back into the 60s. There is even a threat of rain... and in SoCal, that translates into chaos.

Work is throwing challenges... but nothing a little time and patience can't fix.

Geez, dude, 928's are actually going UP... and fast. the days of a nice one for $15k are done. I think people are finally realizing that a Porsche sports car does not need to be rear engined.

As for the 80s cars... it's an age thing. All the kids of the 80s can now afford their dream cars! It's why muscle cars have taken a dump, those who grew up with them are now aging out and selling. This is the time to buy and hold, then sell in about 3-5 years... maybe a little more.

yea, I know... there have been some good operations, but in general, C4 owners were too broke to spend real money.

Especially after the C5 came out!
