I just wanted to introduce myself, as I'm new here. Been planning on a z06 for some time now, and yesterday put a deposit down on a 2011 carbon edition in supersonic blue. It's been a long time coming, but I found the right car at the right time. From the serial number (last 3 digits?), it looks like this is #45.
I'm flying from San Antonio next Friday (feb 16th) to DFW with my dad, to pick it up. Pops is going to "help" me drive it back. We're both looking forward to the 85mph toll roads between Waco and San Antonio.
Beautiful car, love the color! Welcome to Z06Vette.com.

oh, and I be going down I-35W from Ft Worth, to 35 proper, then taking the toll roads from waco to Austin, making a stop at Emma Long on Lake Austin for some pictures and uh... scenery (you know what I mean).
Last I heard the people at COTA canceled all plans to allow groups to use the track. I know you can do a driving school at Texas World Speedway in College Station and I HIGHLY recommend you get some professional instruction before letting your right foot overload your ability to recover. These cars WILL bite the novice.
Also, save the dates of May 17-19. That's the Lone Star Corvette Club Classic show that's so big it has to be held at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. On Sunday, you can put your car on the big oval and we'll even let you try out the infield road course.
BTW, our schedule on Saturday is kinda light and I'd love to see the car. Maybe we could meet up some where in South Austin before 6:30 that evening. I'm staying at the Omni South Park. Shoot me a PM if it might work for you.
