Hello All!

Well after getting all of your initial feedback a few weeks back and enjoying some private emails also, I have become one of you. I purchased my 2002 Z06 from Westfall O'Dell Motors in Excelsior Springs, MO off eBay of all places. I got my order # and TPW in the mail this morning so I am now officially stoked. My wife and I are expecting our first child about the same time so this is doubly exciting (for me at least).

Just a short blurb about me: I got my first Vette (a 1971 Coupe) in 1981. I kept it until just a few years ago then sold it and invested the money in Internet stocks while the getting was good. This Z06 has intrigued me since I first read about it, but I have always been holding out for a Porsche 911 Turbo. Well the other day I drove one and really was not that impressed. That opened the door to the Z for me. I'm a mechanical engineer and have been into cars for 25 years: drag racing (another Vette), road racing, and restoration. Bring on the Z06!

Glad you made it over to our side. That car seat is going to look good in the Z. Why? Because nothing looks bad in a Z06.

I was hoping I could get a baby seat in there. Can you turn off the passenger side air bag in the Z? If so, my new daughter is going to have one classy ride. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Great idea! I have seen one of those in the car mags. Any clue on where to get one at a decent price?

Congrats on the Z!! I take my two year old out all the time with a car seat.
She already knows how to spot other Corvette's and wave!

My TPW is July 16th. The dealer said I should see it 10-15 days after it's built.
