Thought I would share some pictures of my new 2008 Z51 MN6, Z51. Loaded 3LT car with only 13,000 one owner miles. Just drove it back to Cape Cod, Mass. from New Jersey on Tuesday. The car was literally kept in a bubble. Appears new and drives like it. Just changed out all the fluids and pulled the NPP exhaust fuse to liven up the sound. It's been a couple of years since I sold my C6 Z06. Feels real good to be back in a nice C6 again. Love the CRM paint. Thought I would share some pics:of the new car along with my others.

Thank You. Stop by sometime. This color is a bit lighter than our Long Beach red C7's. I may like CRM more.

I am always sad to hear of a Vette leaving Jersey, but it looks like it went to a good home.

It was in Ramsey, NJ. Super guy. I thought he was going to cry. His neighbors came over as I put the plates on it. They were shocked. The car was $61,000 new. He just didn't drive it that much. The owner's manual was in the plastic wrap, never opened. I opened it today. There was a note from the salesman congratulating him on his new Corvette. I feel like I just bought a new Corvette. Real time capsule. Really enjoyed the 250 mile ride home.
