Bob Hardt (Torch on the Forum) really doesn't like my plate. To me, its just a plate having a little fun with our fellow brethren. I'll take your opinions under advisement. Thanks.
I was thinking of getting: RIPPIED Your thoughts?

personnally, I would keep the EATSC5S. It is most certainly true. But then again, i have a very dark sense of humor...

Yes, It does. I personally never race other Vettes out of respect... it would be just a race where some Vette loses. Why not set your cross hairs elsewhere?

Alesnik, I belong to the NCCC and all we do all summer is race other Vettes in sanctioned events. Every Vette there loses except one. Makes us all better the next time.

Rippied?? Depends.... who's the audience? It will be meaningless to non-Vetters and only a small percentage of C-5ers will know what it means. Some may make a connection with B&M (Ripper). On the other hand, sounds like DRM has been good to you so maybe they deserve the plug.

If you're going to pi$$ off other Corvette owners, do it right and go with ZR1 ETR or NEW KNG. That will really burn up the old school guys.

Keep the plate, and if they can not take a joke... well you know the saying.

I first saw your plate in BG and must say was a bit surprised you took aim at C5s. Can't say I was pissed, but it did bring a little grin to my face. It does bring out a healthy competative side of us ordinary C5 owners. You've got an awesome car there and should be proud. I don't think I'd change the plate to Rippied, I agree that not many would know what Rippied means. It may make you a "Marked" man at some of the vette gatherings though. I do enjoy your enthusisam. You'll find not all C5s are all that edible

My plate started out on my second Grandsport as a little dig to the new C5 guys. Then since it cost some coin when I bought my first FRC I moved it to that car, then to my second FRC and now to the Z06. So as you can see, it was in the beginning a little shot from the Grandsport.

Dennis, not guilt, just want to make sure it doesn't p*ss people off too much. Torch has said he really doesn't like it. I wanted to see how many share his opinion. I belong to 3 local Vette clubs with over 700 total members and I've had a lot of positive remarks since the plate was first on my GS. Anyway, its all in good fun.
