Default New to me ZR1

Well all the way back to the C4 ZR1 I said I would own me a ZR1 one day. Well I finally got one thirty years later. I had a C5 and had a major illness in 2015 and almost passed away. When I got out of hospital I began my guest. I bought a base C6 and within two months I found a one owner Z06 and traded for it. First time with this kind of power. Long story short I began the mods to about 520 to the wheel. Power was intoxicating. I keep it for about two years and traded for a black perfectly modded to my taste with the cooling bricks, e85, ported here and there putting 740 to the ground. I love my new ZR1!!
