After nearly a year, an order that didn't go throught on an 01, and countless hours of searching and switching back and forth from red to yellow, I finally picked up the Z I really wanted. YUP!!! IT"S YELLOW, with the mod,red interior. Thanks to this and the CF I was able to locate this vehicle in Ohio. The only down side to this whole experience was that a friend and i took a bus down to Ohio from Mass. and it took us 21 hours. On such short notice it was the only transportation I could find to Ohio. So I ended up riding on a couped up smelly bus for 21 hours /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif so that I could get this car. Driving home wasn't bad at all though. I was so excited that the 850 miles seemed like a walk in the park. In fact, I made it all the way home without even getting pulled over, that is until I got within 1/4 mile of my front door. I was anxious to get home because I was tired and wanted to get the Z indoors. I was going through town, almost home, and then I see flashing blue lights /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif The police officer comes to my window and says DAMN this thing is sweet!! He asked if I could stick around while he called his partner to come see it. Here I am thinking that I was getting pulled over for speeding (because I was /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif ), and this guy just wants to check out my car. He said he thought it was a Lamborghini. I thought that was pretty funny, as its pretty difficult to mistake one for the other. But, he let me go, and I finally made it home in 1 piece. I can't wait to see what this car can do. Thanks to everyone at Z06vette.com and the CF for all the answered questions and interesting posts I LOVE YOU GUYS! (well, maybe thats going a little over board, but you get the picture /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif)

Welcome to the fam! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Any questions whether the gendarmes are attracted to MY? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif Is it because the Winchell's signs are the same color? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif , but you're not getting my Bud Lite!

Congrats on the car, and not getting a ticket. My neighbor said the cops pull him over all the time around here to see the car and BS - beats getting a ticket any day. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I'm extremely happy and I still can't believe I finally got this thing. Glad to hear you guys liked the story. There is actually a lot more to the story than the above post. I just gave you the brief edited version. I didn't want the post to drag. If I can get away from my car long enough to type it out, I will post the extended version (its pretty funny). Anyway, time to go make sure the Z is still in the garage and I'm not dreaming /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Extended version should be forthcoming. I picked my car up at Jake Sweeney's in Cincinnati OH. I haven't heard anything about them, and only went there on a recommendation of a forum member, but all in all, I would have to say that I was pretty happy. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
