  4. Need a stock rim for the rear, anyone???

    Member Sales/Trades - Parts & Cars
    I've had endless problems with my dealer Bill Heard Chevrolet and Farmers Insurance here in Las Vegas while dealing with the accident repairs on my Z. They are trying to stick me with a bent rim in the rear that should have been repaired with my insurance claim. It's a long story but I can't be...

  6. Headlight adjustments, HELP

    C5 Z06 - Pit Road
    I just got my Z back from the body shop after the accident. Total came to about $4,500 (deductable was only $500 though). Passenger side corner of the car's nose was bashed up. It hit a skinny tree. These car's are definately costly to repair! Upon investigation of the repair work done to my...

    One of mine is dented, front passenger side. What does a new one go for?

    "good thing you were'nt on the Duc" I was thinking the same thing almost immediately. Would have had a good chance of becoming a dead duck. Be safe out there everyone!

    Thanks for all your support guys! This forum rocks and you guys are the reason why. I have a $500 deductable so that's what I pay the dealer after repairs have been made. I hope they know what their doing. It is a Chevrolet dealer with plenty of vettes so hopefully the have experience. Sorry...
  10. My Z hit a tree

    C5 Z06 - Grandstand
    Last night out of nowhere noticed a large paint can in the middle of the street. Swerved to avoid it but hit some loose gravel near curb a slid into a small tree snapping it in two. I am thankful I did not get hurt but the front of my car is in BAD shape all because of this stupid debris left...
  11. Anyone here have a permit to carry concealed gun?

    The Garage (non Vette related)
    It almost seems like a liability to carry a gun unless you are highly trained and experienced or it's a definite life or death situation. What if a situation eroneously causes you to brandish the gun but not use it? I'm sure that you might still get in trouble. Here's a scenario for you guys...
  12. Anyone here have a permit to carry concealed gun?

    The Garage (non Vette related)
    I think it's called a CCW permit. Anyone have one? Why do you carry? Have you ever been forced to use the gun? Was it a hassle to get the permit? How long did they make you wait to get it? Here in NV you have to wait about 120 days after filing and taking the apprpriate 8 hour trainng course.
  13. Futures and options????

    The Garage (non Vette related)
    I traded futures on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade in the "pits" as a local for 2 years. I also handled customer's accounts. If you want my opinion do it only if you have a lot of extra income you'd like to gamble with. It is amazingly difficult to make any money over the long run...

  15. C6 diecast models are in!

    The Garage (non Vette related)
    Thanks for posting them QS Z06, Because a number of you have been asking the model is $87.25 shipped to you. I know this is not cheap but this early in the game it's supply/demand. I was lucky enough to have my rep get a hold of 4 cars before the official release date of February 2004. They...
