Regular Car Reviews: Corvettes at Carlisle 2014

Published on Sep 15, 2014 189,760 views

No matter what you think of Corvettes themselves or the kind of culture they cultivate, it's hard not

to respect the amount of dedication that goes into Corvette ownership. We've reviewed several, and

we've yet to meet someone who ever takes their responsibility lightly. And that's deserving of a certain

respect in itself.

  • acousticbruiser19
    acousticbruiser19 4 года назад It's because Mr. Regular knows how to describe things in a way that anyone can understand because we've all had those moments. It's being normal and philosophical at the same time without being a pretentious douche.

    LIMB Clinic PC 10 месяцев назад My 94 Cutlass was a piece of shite that would have a hard time going up hills, had fucked up rear view mirrors that could not be fixed because it had weird pieces that cars don't use anymore, and would on occasion overheat for no apparent reason. But I'll be damned if it didn't take the punishment that came with me learning how to drive like a champ.
  • james wilsoncroft
    james wilsoncroft 4 месяца назад TheDriver458 my first car was a $900 SAAB NG900 turbo and it lasted two months before tranny and clutch went kaput. Tossed through a wringer but gave me a fun first car experience before I discovered all the problems. Lesson here people, always be smart about your first car purchase, don’t ever put too much trust in words but in physical evidence of the car’s condition. Despite all this I miss that little beater, fast forward 3 years I’m a SAAB guy because of it and I love the quirky weird kid’s lunch table vibe as Mr. Regular described in his review of that ‘86 900 Turbo

    RoachOverlord 4 года назад @J.Yossarian How old does a car need to be to be considered "classic"? My Z is an 84, which makes it 30 years old this year.
  • J.Yossarian
    J.Yossarian 4 года назад @RoachOverlord That's a good point and, TBH, the Z31 is probably the best model for RCR, but I'm really hoping he'll cover either the 240, 260 or 280!

  • IOUaUsername
    IOUaUsername 4 года назад (изменено) The 280zx would be a more interesting review. It's not a pure z car, it's one they tried to weave some luxury into. It's insanely well equipped, but all the added technology is from 1982, so you get weird things like a CRT TV, pushrods to control the rear windows from the front seat rather than motors, and a red LED digital dashboard.

Respectful, good family, matching hats with wife, the car is a part of the family and when you buy a new Camaro, they welcome you into their group at the local Autocross kinda like a little brother with a solemn nod and a hand shake that says 'You're on your way'. Good people them Corvette people.

  • ACFM hd
    ACFM hd 4 года назад @Squidward .Tentacles I agree in that regard. I do respect the Nissan for what it is and I am a big fan of some Japanese cars.  I owned a S2000 for many years and loved it. It's just that the original comment implied that Corvette owners at a corvette rally would feel intimidated by the arrival of a GTR.  And that's just laughable. It would be like someone pulling up to Harley Davidson gathering on a Hayabusa. Although the Busa would wipe the floor with a Harley in regards to performance, no one would be impressed or give it a second look.
  • NoBrakes23
    NoBrakes23 4 года назад Godzilla is an awesome car, but it weighs a go-zillion pounds. Some of us like to turn while going down a hill, and all the horsepower, AWD, and fancy driver aids in the world won't make up for the car being too damn heavy.

  • Mythbuster
    Mythbuster 4 года назад A GTR showed up... And then what? The Vette showed the GTR who's boss. Cause you know what? the GTR needed 4 attempts AND Nismo tuning to beat the American plastic ZR1 and the Viper ACR around the friggin Nürburgring. Don't be such an arrogant twat thinking the GTR is "the car of all cars"... A GTR has no soul. It's not even an engineering marvel if it can't beat simple brute force(Vette, Viper) around the most difficult racetrack in the world without extra tuning... 
  • Mythbuster
    Mythbuster 4 года назад (изменено) @RLAgito The old Skylines were cult-cars, the R35 is nothing more than a computer with no soul. And I've ridden in one. Spectaculary fast around the racetrack... but soul-less. 
  • Thunderstruck170
    Thunderstruck170 4 года назад @100vasiliy don't know where you saw a used audi r8 for 40k, but the lowest i saw was $75k.  If you wanna go used car prices I can match you there, C6 ZO6 for $35k or ZR1 for $65k

  • malevolenceXXXensues
    malevolenceXXXensues 4 года назад @ACFM hd well, in my opinion Corvettes are about the sensation of Danger, straight-line performance, high horsepower for a moderate priced sports car, and the oversteer. While Skylines are more balanced out, better turning, and technologically advanced. But keep in mind a Z-28 Camaro did dominate the latest Skyline on the track

  • Mythbuster
    Mythbuster 4 года назад (изменено) @HerpDerp063849 I've ridden in one thank you very much. The pacecar at the Supercar Challenge on the Dutch circuit of Assen, being driven by the owner, an ex-racing driver, and he absolutely went for it, because he was told to "make them(us) a bit crazy"...  You can litterally feel the computers keeping you on the road.  That exact thing makes it soulless, it's too perfect, too humorless. It's a spectacular computer and an amazing experience, but a computer none the less. It's the preteen boys who say the GTR isn't soulless because its "so very fast". I ain't a Chevy fanboy at all. If anything I'm a Dodge or BMW fanboy. I'll have a slower Countach or a Murciélago over a GTR any day. Sorry for prefering good old mechanical handling, like my underpowered E36.
  • J.Yossarian
    J.Yossarian 4 года назад @Mythbuster I just like it because it's a fantastic car and is the perfect blend (in looks at least) of import and American muscle IMO. pls dont hate me
  • Newgenerationisbg
    Newgenerationisbg 4 года назад @100vasiliy Just because american cars aren't imported much, doesn't mean they aren't popular. Here in the capitol of Bulgaria, I see 3-4 Camaro's on my 30 minute commute to school every day.
  • Marine475
    Marine475 4 года назад @HerpDerp063849 You miss the point. Supercharged or N/A engine power delivery is way different than in modern turbo car and some people enjoy real torque curve and not a flat line. To assume that Nissan engineers know better is just childish, both companies have resources to build whatever they want, the technology is there so is the knowledge. The only difference is in the objective they want to obtain. It's the same thing with 911 engine in the back or Ferrari using N/A V12 in their most powerful cars.  BTW V8 in vette is lighter than turbo v6 in GTR
  • Mythbuster
    Mythbuster 4 года назад @J.Yossarian What? I hope you're refering to liking the Vette for those reasons? O.o I'm confused, cause I don't see how the R35 has any muscle-styling in it :/

  • Justa318i
    Justa318i 4 года назад @100vasiliy No one is talking about used, and in the US a new C7 is 50,000 dollars, a new GT-R is 100,000 dollars. A C7 Z06 is 76,000 dollars and will run rings around a base model GT-R for 24 grand less. And by the way, I would take a C7 Z06 over new R8, let alone a used one, R8 and audi in general are about the most bland and boring a super car can be.
  • 100vasiliy
    100vasiliy 4 года назад @Justa318i the only good thing about Corvete is the engine. thats it. it nowhere near as refiend and detailed as a GTR and a R8
  • Justa318i
    Justa318i 4 года назад @100vasiliy Except the C7 z06 has better wheels, brakes, and suspension than an R8 and GT-R Gimme a call when Nissan and Audi stick massive carbon ceramics on their car for under 100,000 dollars new.
  • malevolenceXXXensues
    malevolenceXXXensues 4 года назад @100vasiliy as refined as your grammar?
  • Justa318i
    Justa318i 4 года назад @Steven Nathan Do some research, a car's brakes, wheels, and suspension aren't really up for debate. And it's preference, but I think a RWD V8 would be more fun to drive than an AWD 6 cylinder whose computer handles all of your inputs.
