I can see why he belongs in the killfile. He starts this specific thread
by describing how he replaced his C7 engine at 6000 miles, saying he
bought it in the first year, and then goes on to proclaim that I should
read a book on money management and never buy a car new, etc. He also
has to offer his judgement as to how I should enjoy or not enjoy being
noticed in this car. What a total asshole.

He went into my killfile as well. The first and the only Corvette person
I have met in nearly 50 years that I strongly dislike......
