Default #1686- ok now some good stuff....

First off if you got the A8 and love it Iím glad for you.
But holy crap is this thing fun to drive with the M7.We
spent all afternoon in the car, came back home to take care of the ďkidsĒ and then took off again. We went to our local haunts and the car is defenity a show stopper. Good fun. I wonder how long Iíll Have a drivers license?
Like that review said, throttle response is like speed limit..... then jail. Not much in between.
Tomorrow she goes for ppf and tint.

For your amusement these are my new kids....the wife needed something since all my boys are out of the house and Iíve been totally pre occupied wiaiting for a car. oh well!



New goats(kids) .... new ZR1 ..... happy wife....
life is good
please donít ban me for posting a non corvette pic. Lol




The Jake stripe is a hit. Looks great at night under lights.

That car is smokin' hot...Congratulations....
By the way I had to buy a few horses through the years for my wife to balance out my need for speed...
When my daughter was 3 she wanted a puppy .I thought I could pass off a pair of dwarf Nigerian goats instead.
She wound up with the puppy and the goats. Those little goats are fun...I remember bottle feeding the little critters!

That stripe in the night photo looks great! I know you and I are in the minority, but your chrome wheels look fantastic!

The goats are way cool, and your car is beautiful, the only reason I didn't get that color was my Z06/Z07 is that combo, very nice.

Thanks for all the comments. I didnít know how popular the goat picture would be. LOL or the Chrome but on this color I just had to go with chrome.
We just dropped it off at the paint protection shop and I guess it was a good omen since there was a stingray already in the shop. While there I had a great conversation with the owner of that car who turned out to be a retired Police officer and after our conversation he handed me one of the challenge coins that they carry. So that was pretty cool. Thank you Jeff if youíre on the forum!
Iíll be traveling all of next week and I just wanted to thank everyone again for all the comments on the car and as soon as Iím back Iíll get some pictures out there with the silver 72 and this one together which should be pretty cool. I post about the xpel and cerrmic...Canít wait to get to Spring Mountain.

Car looks fantastic!

After my brother-in-law got divorced, he bought a goat to keep him company. Itís been nearly three years now and they seem really happy together.

HAHA...OK so now we need to start a poll..How many ZR1 owners have goats or goats in their immediate family? Too funny. And we all own a goat anyway the ďGreatest Of All TimeĒ corvette... at least for a little while.

yea the little guys are about 10 days old. We have goats to keep the brush down on our property. We bottle feed them to make them super friendly.
They live in luxury here.
Until we got the first ones I had know idea how much personality they have. They are hilarious when they are little.
