Just had lunch with my buddies who own an auto repair shop. I pull out of their parking lot across traffic next to another car already waiting at the light. I look over and this guy is mouthing words and waving his hands. I roll down my window just as the light turns green and he says, "Is that 405 horsepower?" I reply "yuppers". He says " that is absolutely awesome" He is about 55 or 60 years old so I gave him a little tail wag show thru first and second gear.

Makes a guy feel good. Kinda like I made the right choice. hahaha

Oh, another thing happened today. I was in the Z and at the drive up teller window at the bank. I hear a guy pull up to the stall to the left of me and hear him revving his motor and power braked the car. I just keep looking straight ahead. Then I hear the motor race and the tires squeal a second time. I look over and it is my buddy in his Highway Patrol car (undercover). He is a big wig in his division. He rolls down his window and says " do you want to race?" hahaha I replied " I think they call this entrapment". hahaha

He is a Corvette fan but does not own one. I need to take him for a spin some day.

LOL

The Z does get a lot of attention. Yesterday when my wife went out to finish up our xmas shopping, we were coming out of a store and walking towards the car. My wife noticed a young boy (maybe around 10-11) had hopped out of his car and ran over to the Z and was checking it out and telling his Mom that's what he wanted to get for Xmas :)

We just laughed. I can remember those dreams myself when I was 10. ...Sometimes dreams do come true!
