Hello from Charlotte, NC

Hi all .... just bought myself a "new" Z06 for my 60th birthday. I am at the bottom of the learning curve but having a blast. It had 4275 miles on it when I bought it a month ago. Now it has nearly 6800. As you can see, it's garage queen days are over and it now has to work for a living carrying me to work everyday.



Here it is on it's first day "on the job".

Thanks all .... nice to be here.

It is a 2004, bone stock right down to it's original GY sneaks and past-due tire repair kit. They will be replaced very soon ...

Re: Hello from Charlotte, NC

Welcome Aboard! Congrats on your "new" Z06! With that low of mileage, it must have been a garage queen. But what the hey, the last owner saved her just for you!

Welcome to the site Theo! It was nice of the previous owner to save it for you, but these cars are meant to be driven :D

Re: Hello from Charlotte, NC

Welcome
Belated Happy BDAY .. you are only a couple years older than Americas only sports car (this from someone who was 12 when the vette was born)

Congratulations on your Z, looks like you scored a sweet queen. Ain't it awesome to be in Love again
