You let ricers lauch ahead of you at stoplights because you are sure you can beat them and it's not worth your time.

You carry a bottle of quick detailer and a microfiber cloth in a little shaving kit case in the rear hatch.

You find yourself cleaning your wheels of brake dust after every single drive, and once again swearing you will change to low dust brake pads.. but don't get around to it, and then find yourself cursing as you clean your wheels once again.

You can't wait to pull up to a stop light next to a 2014 C7. In a deserted area with nothing but open road in front of you.

Don't care how much premium costs. You just buy it.

Close the doors of your car with two fingers so you don't smudge the paint or glass.

Always valet.

Know how wide your rear tires are.

Sleep comfortably knowing there's never been a Mary Kay z06.

You press the traction control for 7 seconds every time because the others are useless.

You have no excuse to be late for work you just chose to be.

Everyone you work with knows you as the guy with the z06 whether you know them or not.

Your known as the guy with the z06.

You have never been asked how much hp you have... They already know... It's alot.

Would only drive a zl1.

Never in a million years debadge your car.

I'm pretty much the opposite. I would debadge mine. Wouldn't drive a ZL1. Always get asked how much power it makes. There are tons of them here so having a z06 doesn't make you stand out. I've never valeted, I park in the same space I would park any other car. I drive in the rain. I take it to home depot. I take it to the gym.

And my car is highly modded 1050rwhp car. I built it to drive and enjoy, so that is what I do.

When somebody says "oh you have a vette" you shake your head and say no. I have a Z, big difference.
