Default ZR1 amazing and ridiculous

First I would like to thank Mary Barra, my Third Son Harlan Charles, Plant Manager and Whomever I missed for the Delivery of my 75th New Corvette-which by the way is Vin #75......
This VETTE is Truly Amazing-after a mere 25 Miles I can tell you do not miss out Buying this one.....
First of ALL WHAT difference in the fit-finish and Paint job.....I am not the kind of guy who ever looks at every nook and cranny but I did take some extra time Examining the car.. ....The paint finish is NOTICEABLY better then in previous years even to a novice like me and the gaps and alignment on the panels are almost perfect.
I also really like the Sebring Orange and the way the Orange Package Design added touches.......
In driving the car the first thing I noticed was that the front hood is not a problem -and the rear spoiler without the ZO7 Option does not hinder your rear view in any Way...
I did notice without the Economy Mode you better be aware of the sheer raw power this car has when you first take off from a light or wherever...
The most fun---DRVING WITH THAT TOP DOWN---So Quiet and you do not get blown around and I have not yet put on the Wind deflector.
My biggest problem was talking to and answering all the Questions from people asking me Questions even in this short drive---it was distracting which you do not need when you are behind the wheel of this Monster...
I would also be REMISS if I did not THANK ATLANTIC CHEVROLET in Bay Shore for the way they made my Sale of my 2018 and Purchase PAINLESS....Hats off to RONNIE D. and Michael C....and of course to my SONS for spending some more of there Inheritance...
Will post some Photos shortly...Harvey

Hey Harvey...Congratulations! I use Atlantic to service my Z06 but didnt consider buying from them because they charge $20k+ over MSRP. Just curious what they charged you and what did you trade in? (If you dont mind me asking)
