For all the Z Bruthas and Sistas:

Twas the Night Before Christmas (Z06 Style)

Twas the night before Christmas, and I had just got my Vette
I had finished the break-in, but not run it hard yet;
The car was parked in the drive and the Zaino applied,
Just finished buffing it since that great stuff had dried;

I had checked all the vendors, buying my mods way ahead,
With visions of more horsepower dancing in my head;
Having decided it was time, with all my work being done,
I had just buckled in for a quick winter’s run;

When I turned on the key there arose a mean growl
My glee overtook me and I started to howl;
I backed out of the drive, and put it in gear,
When I stepped on the gas, I knew excitement was near;

The moon lit up the street ahead of this beast,
I shifted into second and was now heading east;
I got on the freeway and shifted to third,
The rush of adrenaline was almost absurd;

I shift into fourth, press the pedal and hang on,
‘cause this car is a movin’, I am flying along;
Out on the road this Z is a dream,
Climbing through 80, then 90, really picking up steam;

Cruising along now and I just need to know,
As I shift into fifth I ask “how fast will she go?”;
I press on the gas the Z responds in a flash,
"Man am I flying, this car can haul a$$";

About this time I look on the shoulder to the right
And I see an officer of the law sitting there in the night;
I hit the brakes hard, hit the clutch, shift the stick,
He puts on his lights and comes after me quick;

I pull over to the side and I prepare for the worst,
The officer strolls to the car and I feel like I am cursed;
Turns out he is real cool, full of Christmas spirit,
Says “love your car sir, just don’t put your foot in it”;

I notice his smile and the look in his eye,
The way he looks at the Z, he’s obviously a car guy;
His eyes they did twinkle, as he listened to her purr,
He winked and he smiled and said “you be careful now Sir”;

I was still shaking as I started to go,
Decided to slow down a bit, keep the profile low;
Got back to the house put the car right away,
Pondered what happened, pretty lucky I’d say

This car is such fun, such a pleasure to own,
The looks that it gets, the stares and the moans;
We scrub them and wash them, polish them quite a bit,
We cry and we scream if they ever get hit;

While driving I remembered the info I came upon,
From a great little website, Z06Vette.com;
It’s a place to get info, meet folks, and have fun;
The members are giving, I really learned a ton;

With FUBU, and Frank, FRC Tom, and JC,
With IMA and Zippy, 1FastDog and Rick D.;
The information presented is so helpful and great,
You can’t get back there fast enough, you don’t want to wait;

We laugh and we joke, and we all love our Z,
We help and we teach, this has become a community;
So I want to say to all those perusing this site,
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!!

Best wishes this Cristmas Season to all the Z Community,
Mark

I just wanted to take a poll but am I the only one that will putting a bow around the car every christmas.

I only do that because my wife says the car is my Christmas present for the next 10 years. So I figure I might as well have something to unwrap each year.

Thanks folks,

Thought it would be fun, Xmas is my favorite time of year, expect other little tidbits over the next couple of weeks...

It took me about 90 minutes to come up with this...

JC, do whatever you feel is necessary with it, it is my present to this site and all the Bruthas and sistas of the Z...
