I rode by Criswell Chevrolet yesterday and noticed that a Electron Blue Z06 was still sitting there. I first noticed it at shop night on Tuesday. So, I stopped and inquired. It was available! Apparently some one had orderd it but would not pick it up!?!

I took it for a short ride - WOW!

Next thing you know they are appraising my 2000 Coupe and filling me in on the financing, etc. I told the salesman I would chew on it over night and get back to him.

Hardly slept. I was busy this morning and thought for sure the car would be sold. Even called the salesman and told him, "Thanks, anyway".

My son talked me into driving by about 5:00 o'clock just to see if it was still there. Next thing I know I am driving out the parking lot in the EB Z06 and it's mine!

Man, what a thrill! The Z06 is the same, but it is entirely different. What an automobile!:cool: :cool:

The bad clutch and vibration are gone, too. What a deal. :D

Wow, Steve. What a great decision!

For sure now that your 2002 season will surpass your amazing 2001. Looks like we'll have to be spending more time at MIR with its 11.5 floor.

Did you rescue the Tric or have to leave it stranded? The Kirban?

Thanks, guys.

Nothing like a new toy. Especially one like the Z06!

Ranger, I kept nothing. Mostly because I didn't have the opportunity. I really had no intention of buying it when I drove into the lot and parked. I actually signed the papers while a couple of nice folks were test driving it! Got a dirty look over that!

But while I did not keep the good stuff, neither did I keep the bad stuff. The bad clutch is gone, so is the vibration!!!!!!!!! No more pedal sticking to the floor. No more gear grinding. What a relief.

Hopefully I learned something in the last two years with the 2000, but now I will be looking to you guys for advice on the Z06.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
