Congrats on the buying the Z. The waiting for delivery or picking up the car is always hard to do. I waited 2 weeks for mine..it was the longest 2 weeks...

No need to lie, we understand.
Beautiful low mile cherry w/ 22K, a LOT of quality life left in it.
Lucky find.

Just had mine out first time in 8 weeks, like breathing fresh air.
Hate being a buzz kill but my cruise reminded me how squirrely damned rear gets on winter roads w/ a light salt film.
Michelins have 10K on 'em, a strong pull in 2nd, gone. 3rd, gone.
Z06 is a challenge keeping planted pointing forward on a perfect road, anything less & ride can get interesting real fast.

Use extra care learning this car & it'll be around for years of pure enjoyment.

Drove it about 40 miles today... I didn't want to stop... The clutch, trans shifts effortlessly... The entire car is a joy to drive even bone Stock!! I cannot imagine how it is going to act once I begin modding... which will be soon... snapped a couple of pics today. Love this car!!!

Ryan, I don't know if you can get this Black to shine like your JSBZ....

I think I am willing to find out though.... If nothing else I can take your H/C/I Z for a drive all while testing out the new LG coilovers...

I will also echo that sentiment. I bought mine on January 15th and I still don't have it! Haha. Spoke to Intercity today and it's looking like Thursday of this week. What's going to be more painful is staring at it in my garage for the next 2-months. We've gotten 18" of snow in the last few days and the roads are a mess. Very much looking forward to Spring.

Congrats again.......

Not sure what is worse, not being able to focus and pacing around the house while the car is being delivered or how many times I kept opening the garage door to see it sitting in my garage..... Thursday is right around the corner, hang in there (better said then done, haha)..

I drove from Austin to Houston (~2.5hrs) to pick up my Z. The closer we got, the more nervous I became. This is the first car I've owned with this kind of power. Needless to say, the drive back was extremely pleasing.

Congrats on the new arrival. You'll love the car.
Got my '08 JSB Z06 3 1/2 years ago for my 60th birthday. Arrived from Pennsylvania to California with only 8500 miles on it. Since then did the heads and cam package from AHP. Runs liked a raped ape!
Enjoy!

I bought mine the day after Thanksgiving, 2012. Drove to Arlington right across the street from Six Flags, in a 2005 coupe. Made the trade and drove back to Texarkana...3 1/2 hours with a great big grin on my face. Good times.

That's a great story... an 05 coupe for an 06Z and some cash I am assuming...?

Congratulations and enjoy your new ride. I just bought mine the past weekend and took a 7 hour drive one way to get it. The drive home in my 2008 2LZ Z06 was awesome. Car was loaded with Nav, new tires, Spider wheels, K&N C/A/I, Akrapovic titanium full exhaust with the carbon fiber tips and Mild-2-Wild installed, 32K on the ODO. I was so excited I stayed up all night and gave it a wash, clay bar treatment and detail. I'm in the Midwest where we usually have snow, rain and cold weather and we have nothing but extra warm weather and sunshine since we picked it up. Weather all week here is above average and in the 60's this coming weekend. Awesome first week!!

Good looking car. I'll be packing my **** up and shipping both Vettes back to Texas from Washington in about 5 months when I retire. Can't wait, tired of this 7 months of rain.
