Default Holy Cow! Thanks to a couple forum members, I'm back. Very impressed so far

I haven't had a vette since 2010 and eight days ago I saw a beautiful 2019 Sebring Orange Z06 M7 listed in the for sale section. My wife saw what I was looking at and said you should just get it. I was surprised but she knows how much I enjoyed my last one. So, I'm back and very impressed with the improvements GM has made. I know everything isn't perfect and there have been various issues, but I look forward to getting back on track at VIR with my buddies. I have LOTS of reading to catch up on with this forum. Also, lucky for me, I picked up a beautiful set of Forgeline wheels from a forum member to put on the car so I can save the cup tires for the track. Still grinning from the ride home today

Made the wife drive my Mustang GT home 3 hours (she hates it...lol):




Made it home after 3 hours of driving. More comfortable than I expected:



New wheels from a generous forum member. I love the Forgeline VX1's. They should go nicely with the orange:

Congrats, I was following that thread in the for sale area. That's a beautiful Z. And those rims are my favorite from Forgeline. You really scored on both deals.

Great car and congrats! I seriously almost bought it myself, it was everything I wanted except the brakes. Hope to see you at VIR. A bunch of us are going March 24/25.

Thanks fellas. The car is in perfect condition and still has the new car smell. Not one scratch on it and it has a clear bra covering the whole car. The installer did a fantastic job. I was very pleased with the sale....and I'm pretty ocd by nature. My bank account is going to hate me this year.

I, too, was enjoying watching that car. I would have bought it but for having purchased a new Z just a couple of weeks earlier.

Congratulations!

Congrats. Beautiful Z06 and it looks like you scored two great deals. The Forgelines will transform your car both in performance and looks.

^^ Thanks Mike.


Got her fully detailed today. Fantastic work. Whoever installed the clear bra did a great job.
