Met up with Pops Yesterday For Lunch (Corvette 427)

Photobucket isn't letting me upload any pics for some reason so I'm trying the attachment feature.

Met up with my dad for a quick lunch yesterday at a local burger place and we could sit and see the cars over at the papa johns while we ate. I just snapped a few iPhone shots.

His car is an absolute beast. Z06 engine and body in a convertible and we picked it up in Kentucky at the corvette museum late June and went on a 5,000 mile round trip out west. It was a blast and every time I see this car I drool. The exhaust is insane too. The butterfly valves open at I think 80% throttle above 3k RPM. It sounds amazing and crackles like fireworks during the lag between shifts.

I used to eat at Papa John's years and years ago. There is a place walking distance from my house that has the best pizzas.

I've never been much of a papa johns fan, I'd rather make my own pizzas or go to an actual restaurant for some pizza.

They really are. The enjoyment they can evoke in either driver or passenger seat is nuts. Thanks and you're welcome!

Nice one haha. But no we didn't eat there, just parked there so we could sit next door, at the burger place which is awesome, and see our cars.

It seriously is. My dream car is an E92 M, but the day my dad tries to sell his vette if I have the money I'd have to take it off his hands!
