Default New To Me 2007 Z06

My first post on here. I picked up this 2007 LeMans Blue Z06 back in January. Finally decided to post a pic. I'm in the Bay Area and found the car online at a dealership in Florida. I had a mechanic check it out and test drive it first, then made the purchase and had it shipped over. Just had a 30K miles on it when I got it, and I couldn't be happier with it. I've been searching for an 07 LeMans Blue for a while, and finally pulled the trigger on this one.

Congrats and welcome to the forum! Love the LeMans. I’m in San Jose, you should come out to the autocross at Crows Landing in 2 weeks. I’ll be out there with my silver 2006 C6Z.

The car is all stock. I'm going to have the cylinder heads checked out and have the valve job done if necessary. Besides that, I might just keep it like it is. Well I say that now, lets see how long that last. LOL!

Congrats!! I am in the East Bay also(Tri Valley area). Bring it up to Abel Chevrolet in Rio Vista to have them check the valves. They are the best Corvette dealership/service center. A lot of us in the Bay Area, actually California bring our Vettes there for servicing. They are certainly worth the drive. I have a 2009 Z06 that they did the heads on last year.

Curious, any issues at all getting the C6z retitled in Cal? Smogged? My experience was with a Texas C6Z , only 7k miles but would not pass ca smog. Deal fell through and was a real shame.

There is an Emission sticker on the car from GM stating that it conforms to California regulations. The mechanic I hired in Florida took a picture of it before I made the purchase. When I had the smog check here, there were no issues.

Was this dealership in Tampa? Are the seats two-toned with red/black?

Sure sounds like it'd been modded. C/H/I/tune would've done it.
Reading comments here CA's likely the worst state when it comes to emissions & modified engines.
