Talking Took the plunge!

Hi Everyone. Just traded my 2009 Saturn Sky for a beautiful MY 2002 Z06. The Sky was fun, but I longed for the real thing; as in V8 power in a true American icon.

I got a great deal at Jeff Wyler Chevrolet of Columbus (formerly Bob McDorman Chevrolet). This Z06 had been in storage for the last couple of year in one of Bob's "barns" where he has quite a collection of classic cars. It has 64,000 miles on it. It has been thoroughly checked out and runs like a dream.

I used to belong to the Skyroadster forum and I knew how to post pics there, but it has been a while. As soon as I figure it out there'll be pics for you to see. If you want to see some pics go to Jeff Wyler Chevrolet of Columbus in your search engine, then search for 2002 Corvettes. Mine is still on the website.

Looking forward to sharing Z06 Zeal with you all!

Re: Took the plunge!

Here are more pics of my Z06 taken with my I-Pod at the dealership. Sorry the picture quality is poor. I'll use my regular digital camera next time.

Congrats!!! Love the C5 in MY. Curious about the previous question from Trig, was the Sky a Redline? Curious about your thoughts on that car.
