The Cimarron Starlite
Cruisers' Car Club proudly features,
great classic vehicles, which belong to the good folks of Oklahoma.
month’s Great Oklahoma Classic is a C6
Chevrolet Corvette LS3 that belongs to Shelby and Donna Lauener of Perkins
This C6 Corvette is painted a beautiful Jetstream
Blue Metallic with a removable transparent roof panel. The removable roof
allows light into the passenger area but keeps out the UV and bright sunlight.
The transmission of the C6 Corvette is a six
speed paddle shift automatic. This is a fun transmission for those that like to
sift or those that want a complete automatic. The ‘Red Line’ for the LS3 is
6500 RPM which gives the feel of even more than 436 horse power.
The engine is an
LS3 6.2 liter (376 cubic inch)
which puts out 436 horse power with special order dual mode exhaust package
that can be switched to ‘OPEN or CLOSED’ depending on the exhaust sound wanted and an the additional six horse
power over the regular exhaust system.
The interior is two tone ebony and champaign with
the 3LT preferred equipment package complete with Boze premium seven speaker
system, six disk CD changer, MP3 format stereo and heated power six way leather
The interior also includes a ‘Head-Up’ display on
the driver side windshield which includes a digital speedometer, tachometer and
various engine information features.
Wheels for this C6 are chrome plated aluminum
five spoke eighteen inch fronts with nineteen inch rears. The tires are
Michelin ‘Run Flat’ P245/40ZR18 on the front and P285/ZR19 on the rear.
