C8 crosses flooded Miami Street

People in Miami, Florida love to show off their sports cars, and this guy decided to show how well it drives in hood high water; not sure if it has the front lift option.

The first named storm of the year, Alex, set Miami Dade County in its sites and dumped enough rain to flood a lot of low-lying streets and stores. But the residents don’t seem to want to change their plans including taking out their sports cars for a spin. Case in point, several videos popped up of a black Corvette C8 driving through flooded streets in what appeared to be above the hood. The C8 survived the flood and drove on down the street.

But oh no, the madness didn’t stop there because multiple videos of Floridians doing Florida things in vehicles were uploaded and many insurance companies have received calls about owner cars needing a bit of drying out and repair.

Click on the picture above to watch the C8 cross the road. For a mash-up of videos features a floating Nissan Sentra, a few BMW and Infiniti products stalled or near stalled, and one dead Mercedes-Benz CLS, Click Here.

Brandon’s 1965 396/425 Corvette

Here’s my ‘65 396/425 roadster that I got in 2016. Traded up from a Silver ‘64 coupe. Can’t beat a C2 Corvette for power and reliability!

My mom had a dark blue ‘63 327/300 4-speed roadster when I was growing up and it was our only family car. I would sit on the pad between the seats when both my parents were in the car. My mom used to drive the ‘63 to work in Chicago every day, rain, shine or blizzard. Thank heavens for positraction! As I grew older, a more practical family car was in order so the Vette was sold to make room for a brand new ‘73 Vega… 😢

Once I had a little extra cash it was time to buy my own C2. The roadster is a delightful car in the California weather. I found the coupe to be a bit stuffy in the summer.

This very sharp and very original example was owner by an N.C.R.S. judge who has achieved no less than three Top Flight Awards! The paint is in beautiful condition, the interior is still features the original door panels, dash and console, and the engine runs smooth and strong and shifts crisply.

It’s loaded with options, including air-conditioning, p/b, p/s, p/w, tilt/tele steering column, am/fm radio, those sharp YJ8 aluminum wheels, luggage rack. And it even has two sets of T-tops and original storage bags; one painted and one clear. This is one of the good ones. You could drive it regularly, if you wanted to. And you should!

some random thoughts

I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury.

Life begins at 40 – but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times.

I’ve got all the money I’ll ever need, if I die by four o’clock.
