    Oldham deserves a round in the Yugo for this post.

    Is this a hint you're gonna test that old wive's tale that Coke removes oil stains from driveways? If not, please do...I don't want to waste a Coke in my own driveway.

    Old cars leak. And the sky is blue. And Edmunds gets defensive about its choice of LT cars. Just the way it is.

    It would be nice to compare the running operating repair costs between the Yugo and the Corvette. And the number of break-downs / days out of service. I'm not sure which one is more reliable.... :)

    I'm betting they don't have 900 miles on the Corvette yet. But the speedo is broken, so who knows.

    Not if you take them all apart and put them back together right, which is what this car clearly needs. And on a 66 that is part of the fun.

    I just posted this in the latest post...but...here it goes again..........

    Edmunds, I really don't understand what you guys are doing with this Corvette. You bought a classic car that requires a lot of DIY type projects and your aren't doing them.

    I'd really like to see the bloggers that are most handy do a few of these projects on the Vette and document how they researched (YouTube, Corvette Forum, etc), where they shopped for parts and how long it took them to fix the issue. All of this should be helpfully documented with pictures.

    IMHO, you guys are really blowing a great opportunity for more clicks and a solid following.
    Don't worry about what other people think. Drive what makes you happy.
