New guy from Colorado

Howdy, Met a member from Colorado Springs at the Adams Polish clinic today, but because I am an idiot, I did not get his name.

I bought an '03 Torch Red Z last fall. Lovin' it. 21,500 miles. I bet I drive it more than the last couple of owners. Stock motor and drive train, with a few appearance mods.

This is my 2nd 'vette and first Z. And I am old (63)

Cheers,

Rick

Re: New guy from Colorado

Welcome to Congrats on the C5 Z06. You are only as old as you feel (I'm 63 also).

Welcome, Rickster. I'm younger than you (58) but not by much. Been to Longmont once to visit relatives. Beautiful place. :1_welcome:

Re: New guy from Colorado

Welcome Rick to the best Z06 forum on the web,

I apologize for the lack of introductions. I guess you could say I was so impressed with your low mileage garage queen Z, that I completely forgot to introduce myself. Better late than never... My name is TJ.

Sweet ride my friend! I look forward to seeing you at other local events.

Welcome to Nice that the previous owner saved the car for you!
I'm in Colorado too, just about 300 miles south, in the "Land of Cool Sunshine".

Thanks for the welcome. And I know 63, isn't old, just the other day, one of my students said I didn't look a day over 62.

Re: New guy from Colorado

Thanks for the kind words. Here is a pic of my Z from when I picked it up last fall. I removed the Corvette decal from the windshield, as I figured out what kind of car it is.
