Default Z51 Badge for Coupes & Verts

Just back from the Myrtle Beach Corvette Club Show last week and hooked up with Rich from CarMotorSports. Great time if you have never been there. New Z51 Badge in similar style to LS1 badging is now available and CMS is considering an F55 badging as well. Thought I'd share some pics of the Z51 badge that Rich mounted on my coupe. Tried to get some different angles to show the overall effect. Last few pics from car show:

Looks like you have been hanging out in the C6 section to much and they got to you

I like the badge just not sure about the location.

Hopefully I'll make it to the next corvette show. Weather pending ofcourse.

just make sure you don't change your shocks, springs or sway bars after you get those badges so you don't become a poser.

There actualy was a "Z51" F.R.C. called the "LIGHT WEIGHT" in "99"It was corvettes effort to get the car in the hands of racers and at the track! they were first seen in a series called the "motorola cup" and it was some of the best racing Ive seen to this day! It Is considered the for runer to the ZO6.

Me no likey.....

It's not a model of the car like a Z06, it's a suspension RPO code . But as we always say - it's your car do what you want and what floats your boat.

I like the design of the badge, just not where it is located. But, then again it's not my car.

I have to agree with the old guy on this one

In fact isn't Z06 an RPO code? Wasn't the Z28 an RPO code? One of the most popular truck RPO's, Z71 and I've seen that plastered all over Silverados for 2 decades. Just saying, Z06 has become more because of what it represents not that it is any thing other than an RPO code.
