Default My dream has come true

After owning two c5's, an 02 Z with longtubes etc putting down 412 rwhp and an 04 Z making 720 hp to the wheels, I finally got my dream car. I have been looking for two years for this beast, and it's finally here. Now I just have to wait for the PA winter to be over. I don't plan on too many modifications, but I am going to start with some subtle things like lug nuts, tint, sunex paint protection, installing the safecraft fire extinguisher on the brey krause mount, rpi side marker tinted covers, and acs front splash guards, maybe an x pipe later with a bms filter etc. Here are some pictures of it (some are from when it was for sale)

Congrats! I too live in PA, northeast philly actually. I drive mine unless it's snowing or they are calling for snow. These cars handle well in the cold weather, with sensible driving of course. Enjoy the car, it's truly awesome. I've owned many Vettes, and this one I think it my long time keeper.

I'm in PA as well. Real close to Pittsburgh so I know the feeling. I actually recently made a video about putting the car away for the winter and it made me quite sad...

If there wasn't so much salt around here I'd try to drive it year round. The snow by itself isn't really an issue but that salt...

I feel your pain. I've been through Clearfield, PA a million times (Clearfield Dairy). I have many relatives in the area. I'm near Buffalo, NY and I bought a 2018 Z06 with 6300 miles on it in December 2018. Can't wait for Spring. I bought the Borla X pipe right after I bought the car. I had the car ceramic coated and I'm gonna have the chip guard film put on it in the Spring. I just put together my new Quick Jack and I'll be lifting it, possibly, today. I'm gonna install the X pipe. Can't wait!!!!

Congrats on the car it looks awesome!! I miss my Z so much it makes me sick.[ 2019 Z06 Manual Torch Red 3LZ] I hate the winters so much here in Chicago, talking about being a long winter. My car is in the garage sleeping, right on the other side of the wall from me, and its killing me everyday. I can't wait to move somewhere warm [eventually ]] so I can drive all year around

Nice!! I'm sure you will enjoy. The competition seats are great, they were definitely on my check list when we got ours.

Question: Which size of the ACS splash guards are you considering? I'm wanting to get some as well. Thanks!
