Last winter I noticed a QS Z06 parked at the end of my street. It was the first Z06 I'd seen in person, and I was /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif and /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_flaming.gif that the guy would actually drive it in the snow, and that it was always parked outside.

Anyway, I've never run across the guy, so I didn't have a chance to talk to him about the car. In the last couple of months the car hasn't been around, so I assumed he sold it due to kids/practicality (there's a lot of kids toys in the yard).

Tonight I was walking back from dinner (hey, I don't have my Z06 yet, so I'm walkin' /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif ) and the guy's wife was out watering the brown weeds (might have been flowers at one point - we need RAIN /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif ) so I walked up the drive and asked her where the Z was. She said they were getting a new Black 02 tomorrow, and they got rid of the QS 01 a few months ago because of oil leaks (big stains in the driveway /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif ).

Turns out they are getting their Z from the same dealer I am, and that their car was delivered to the dealer today after coming off the line Friday. Well, this of course means mine can't be too far behind! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I invited the couple to my BBQ next week, and told them about the forum (which they already knew a little about). They told me that there were two other Z06's within 3-4 blocks of our houses! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

That's funny .... small world for sure. There is a guy who owns/managed a small hotel over in town, about 2 miles away from me ... he has a Torch Red Z06 always parked outside of the place. I see him once in a while on the road, and he waves back all the time.
