Hi,
Haven't been on this site for years but got the itch to maybe play with my car again and will be using this site to start for info and just wanted to post, say hi, and see if anyone here from the very beginning still here. Guess C5 Z06 is no old the section not getting the action it use to 20 years ago. Back in the day I'd post often, stuff like posted of my Kooks LT Header install with pics from beginning to end but been so long my account no longer existed so I guess those posts are long gone. Still got my Z06forum T-shirts and stickers and business cards from the days lol.

But to introduce myself, I go by my original screenname donm527. I have a 2001 QuickSilver Z06 ordered and received new on Nov 2000 and still have it.

Odometer crapped out years ago but I am guessing in last 20 years, I doubt I put 40k on it, I just got busy with life, child, etc., and only took it out of garage a few times a year?

Been contemplating or getting close to the idea of selling her, maybe trying a completely different sportcar at this stage of my life. Used car market crazy right now I wonder if I can get a good price for it... cost me $50k 20 years ago. But like after taking the car our for a spirited drive, this car is still so much fun and scary and exciting... and the damn thing still looks so cool with the FRC shape and small glass in the back and 20 years later still no slouch with an 0-60 just under 4... I may just wanna do some fixing up for pieces that seem to fall apart even sitting in a garage for most of 20 years and keep enjoying.

I'll stop for now and say good to be back for a bit maybe.

Don

Lol, found my ole profile pic on my HDD and put it back on. :)

And I guess my old account wasn't deleted... I thought I used donm527 but it was don527 but I think it was tied to my old AOL account that I don't have anymore lol.

I am here but hardly ever post. I have a 2004 Commemorative Edition Z06 that I bought in August 2006 with 1,423 miles. QUACKEN currently has 27,346 miles. She was Bloomington Gold Certified in 2010. This year she received NCRS Chapter Top Flight in WI and IL, Regional Top Flight at the IA Regional and passed Performance Verification in IA as well. She’s registered for Triple Diamond at MCACN in November and is qualified to try for the NCRS Dave Hill award at National. The car is all stock and unrestored.

I'm still here. Well kind of. It's only been just over 4 years with a different C5 Z06 in the garage since I last posted.

I'll admit, it's nice to see a couple familiar monikers of those who still share the same passion for their Corvettes. With that, I'll set aside more time this winter, and post up a bit more.

Thanks to Don for the "Save the Wave".

Hey Don! ...and I also see Mufflerbearing (aka: Pat, right?) Long time...
I still have my 02 that I bought new. Has a bit over 95K on it...(haven't been driving it much...have a bum left ankle & knee). I'll have to spend a quick minute on this site soon to see the changes. ;)

Good memory, yes I’m still Pat most of the time. I’m hoping things pick up here when the C8 Z06 hits the road in another year or two.
