It's enough to make me bail out of this little group...I own two beautiful vettes and I really don't appreciate anyone telling me they are "ok" If you don't own one, you can't even understand...
Hey guys. I am the admin of this site and let me say the I understand what you are saying and i take your critique seriously. The problem as I see it is that many of the people whom is joining are in fact owners, but by some reason never gets around to uploading the cars. Sure there are a lot here that doesn't own a Vette but like to view and rate them. I do not want to exclude them from the site, the majority of them give nice ratings but of cause there will always be some one spends there time giving bad ones. But do let me know if you have suggestions and other feedback, this site is still very young and I am constantly trying to optimize it. Regards MB-83
If you look at my Vette and judge it as "o.k"....At least put your car out there so we can see this awesome machine and judge you back! How about that?
I hear you fellas. And Robert I have noted your thoughts down for the next group brainstorm. There will be a lot of changes in the near future so I hope some of them will help out this issue.MB
So now this person has rated my C6 as "bad" LOL! Welcome to the forum!
So this "Deon O" has ratted 50% of the vettes on here as bad! MAn he must have a back to the future car!
I think that if you are going to rate someone's Corvette then you need to have a Corvette. I think the guy that rated my ZR1 must have a Chevette and only wishes for a Corvette!!
Amen brother! These people are only here to ruin the site for all of us real Corvette enthusiasts.
I used to get upset but once I thought about it , it just very jealous people venting , I love all corvette's, a 66 went by my door yesterday and I could not stop grueling
If you don't own a Corvette you have no business rating anyone else's and your opinion isn't relevant anyway...
Agree Robert, no Vette, no vote!
The site is open to all,Thats great . But i agree no Vette no vote
Many of the people who join are also family and friends - of cause they can vote and rate Vettes. As long there is no "slandering or bad mouthing" its okay. If a person only wants to rate "bad and ok" well that person must have a boring life if he/her cant appreciate a beautiful car. But still they are not out of line with the guidelines of the site.If there are people you give low votes on purposes - just ignore them.MB
Yes you are right,
To Glenn G. , that same "Deon O" rated my car as "bad" also. Most of the cars he rated, he rated as bad. Wonder what his problem with Corvettes is?
Forget about that loser. He is just here to upset us . Lets not let him do that.We all know where he can put his ratings.
had a guy vote on of my Vettes said it was "BAD"? I thought it was because he doesn't have - OR - like Vettes?... found him on facebook, looked at his profile and saw where things he REALLY liked where "BAD" or "BAD ASS" as in a GOOD thing! but still counts as BAD or "don't like" on my votes! OH WELL, too each there own!!!! I don't give a schiit what he thinks, I LOVE my Vettes
I know my vette is BAD , " BAD TO THE BONE " the way I like it !
Sure is Joe
I really don't care what their comments are. They are most likely jealous and I just take it with a grain of salt. I feel that if you are truly a Corvette enthusiast, all Corvettes are cool. Some of the neatest Corvettes I have seen are barn finds.
Sorry MB, but I agree with no vette-no vote. He's just a lonely idiot with no Corvette anyway. He gave me an OK so that must mean Fantastic! Hahahaha
I know mine is Fantastic! Don't need some "lonely idiot" telling me it's "ok" LOL!
This is my last word on this topic...Most of us work hard and sacrifice to have these great cars and to keep them looking like they do. So think before you rate someone's car as "OK" or "Bad". If you just want to cause trouble, I hope you will go some place else. Here is a pic of my "OK" car.
Truth be known, he probably has a Mustang or Mopar. You know, the ones made out of sheet metal. I met this guy at an audio store after he saw my Vette. He said I have a Miata that I've put a ton of money into and I bet it's faster than your car. I said, that very well may be true but it not a Vette is it? Hahaha!
Way to Go Bob .You said it all
well things could be a lot worse we all could be working for WalMart and driving a Mustang " just saying "
I've had maybe half a dozen people rate my Vette as just "ok". Sometimes I get the urge to ask them "What's up?" I imagine a lot of you are like me in that your Vette is a source of pride to you and it gets under your skin when someone "disses" it.
Got that right, Squeak!
The problem I see here is , " don't cut off your nose to spite your face " what happens to your invited friends ? can they not vote ? My friends are my biggest fans !
If you owned a vette anyone rateing your vette as ok and don't even own one you just say poor bastard!!
Mine just got rated OK, but mine is a all OEM ,with 66K. You can't compare a surviver to a restored classic, or a C-6 .What we need is some guide lines for rating.
I just got another "OK" from a non owner...I'm bailing off this site. Don't need the aggravation. Good luck to all you good guys out there! Jeff C, you can kiss my ^%%^7&&!!!
Won't rate because I don't have one. But I do have these! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1161272031340.172117.1213981074&type=1&l=d6371cccc3 I have some more that I haven't posted yet.
In my opinion there are a lot of Corvette owners that don't qualify to rate a Corvette !depends who you are , male , female , kid , been around the block , original , custom , fast , not so fast !Best to drop the rating thing all together ,then no one gets their feathers ruffled or is it don't get your panties in a wad life is to short enjoy your Corvette and remember what a bummer it was before you had one " just saying "
I dont get upset, I figure if they dont own a vette they dont know what to look at anyway to come up with their vote. I got a BAD vote from someone who doesnt even own a vette. As long as I know my vette is great I really dont give a crap how someone votes, all vettes are great!!!!!!!
Love the Thrush glass pack woodpecker on the window. Cool car. I rate it as Exellent
Why not have the people who don't have Corvettes have to list the car or cars they do have.I figure a guy with a decent car would have more credibility than someone who drives an 87 Camry.
I'm not going to let a bunch of jealous haters run me away from a good site. Although I do wish they would change the voting to only Vette owners. I've gotten a few of those "okays" but I know how nice my car is so the haters can kiss my tailpipe.
Hello I agree with you and squeak people that dont even have one crack me up, and if anyone has noticed most of the ok's or bad are those who dont have one.I laugh at them when they have something to compare then compare till then I have no reason to pay attention to what you have to say in fact I find it comical lol.By the way squeak (NICE CAR!!)
Thanks Fancy! Your's is nice too. What year is that?
i just got my first "OK" from Jim D, who, apparently likes corvettes because he's wearing a corvette shirt in his profile pic, but has not bothered to upload pics of his Vette if he does own one. Out of 150 ratings given, he has dished out 143 "OK"s ... now that's a tough audience. Maybe I'll rate his wife that's in the pic with him in lieu of his car ... hahaha jk ... could care less! Cheers boys!
There are cars on here I would like to rate as "outstanding" but you're only allowed so many. I wish I could get around that.
Gotta love it...
I thought it was just me wow I'm not alone! I love my girl and everyone else's. I don't think no Vette should have an ok or bad vote. Those shouldn't be an option because we all have a special bond with our Vette. It really hurts my feelings
*Update* Anyone who has not uploaded a Corvette on this site can not give a "OK" or "BAD" vote anymore. MB-83
You-da-man MB!! Next up, how about more than 10 "outstandings" like Squeak suggested?
Will look into it Bob
@Bob You can get more outstanding votes by winning challenges.
The rate your Vette thing is getting old, There are more comments on this then the rest of the site, All Vettes are Cool. Either put some rules or category requirements on it. So we can move on. We all love our cars from C-1 thru C-6 But they are all completely different Cars at heart .But they are all Chevys. You cant compare a C-1 blue flame 6 to a 500 hp C-6. You cant compare a 74 surviver with 350 cid 180 hp with 67k , to a full on restored 74 with a turbo charged 400 hp 454 cid . As for me i am happy with my C-4 surviver with a little LT-1 300 hp with 67k on it. ( PS my electric Smart car is faster from 0-35 then my Vette, don't tell anyone we need to keep this just between us )
OK, IMO enough is enough. MB has enough problems keeping this site up and dealing with the idiots that don't like our Vettes. Screw-em, we know what's cool.
There are a lot of beautiful Vettes to look at on here and if you get tired of that you can check out Sassy. She's easy on the eyes! I never get tired of looking at them. I went out today and took some new pictures of mine.
Squeak you make me smile
Sassy, if I've made one pretty girl smile today, I've done good.
It takes a Vette owner to understand the way we feel about our rides. I mean Toyotas, Fords, Nissans etc. are cars and there's nothing wrong with that but we have Corvettes. It's an exclusive club. I was driving down the bypass an hour ago and some guy in a beautiful red C6 going the other way flashed his lights at me. Oldsmobile owners don't do that. So to me, it seems like rating our Vettes is like rating our children. It's okay to do it but you'd better be damned nice about it.
He is adorable isn't he? Now, lets change the damn subject. From now on this thread is about Squeak, and that's all. We all know he gets lots of exercise dusting his black vette. I know because I had a black 95 and it was a dust magnet. So, what's up Squeak? Where do you hail from?
My Red C4 gets dust just sitting in the garage .
Man! I opened a can of worms with this post!
yes yes you did it sure gives me a good laugh daily hahahahah
Real Corvette lovers are picky about their cars and do not appreciate some yo-yo in a 1991 escort rating their pride and joy! LOL!
My Sassy is getting new brakes today she's headed to the beach Saturday am!
mine just got brakes and now is getting a master cylinder today!!!
I went to the biggest Corvette show in Arizona on Saturday. 260 Corvettes and "BUZZ" took 2nd place in C5 category! As in most shows, there were more C5's and C6's than anything else. I was so shocked because there were so many beautiful Corvettes there as you can imagine. Our club (Arizona Corvette Enthusiasts) took home 9 trophies and we had 29 entries. What a day.
I wish Martinsville had a Corvette club of some sort. 9 trophies out of 29 entries is very good. We have shows but they're usually small and a lot of people around here think if it's not a C2 it's not a "real" Corvette.
My Baby is back on the road lol
What do you do when you want to rate someone "outstanding" but the website won't let me. I feel like merely "Great" isn't good enough.
Come on MB! We need more "outstandings"
You can get more "outstandings" by winning challenges against other Vettes btw.
I'm not the brightest bulb ya know? I don't really understand how this challenge thing works.
Here Bob. Under every Vette in here there is a Challenge button. Press it and you challenge that Corvette to a dual. Then others can pick their favorit
If accepted, you will automatically follow each other
