Dear Friends,

As you know, I considered selling my prized 427 C5R Z06 last year when I got divorced but was fortunate not have to do so. She got to keep her damned Infinity and was happy with that.

A few weeks ago there was a thread asking about the sale of ythis car and I told people I was not selling my Corvette. Well, a few dats ago I woke up with very bad double vision a week or so ago, and after a battery of diagnostic tests, found I have a chronic degenerative neorological disease. Because of the costs of treatment for the condition and the fact that driving is now much more difficult, I am electing to sell my custom made 2003 Z06 with a handmade Thunder Racing 427 C5R motor whcih generates well over 630 crank bhp and about 515 at the wheels in its present trim. This car black with a custom black red interier, it is immaculate, it is kept under cover and in a garage. It is never driven in the rain. It has 17k miles on it and has won over nine awards and has two binders of documentation. In short, it is an awesome car. I will likely be posting it on E-Bay motors in the next few days but since the car is here with me in Houston, I thought I would post it here first. I am asking $49,900k and am not willing to negotiate given the great great performance value this car represents. This car has >100 bhp advantage over the new C6 Z06 and approximately $65k in mods over and above the price of a new loaded 2003 Z06. If you are seriousy looking for one of the fastest street cars around - one that will easily blow the doors of a stock C6 Z06 - at an awesome price, and you have the cash, call me. I will not be giving test rides unless the person is serious and comes with a certified check in hand, current insurance, and valid driver's license. This car also represents a substantial savings to get better than C6 Z06 performance

If you have specific technical questions, call Angie Skinner at Thunder Racing 225-754-7223. They can also fax copies of dyno sheets etc. This Vette's VIN is 1G1YY12SX35115186

Serious Inquiries Only Please. This is hard enough as it is as sellin this car is not my first chcoice. My cell phone number is 225-505-2484 and my office e-mail is [email protected] My cell number will be changed to a Houston-based number in the next few weeks. Please call me only if you are serious and have the funds. Crank calls will be reported to the police.

Truly sorry to hear it. It was a sad day when I had to let my 03 Z06 go as well, but it wasn't any where near these circumstances. Prayers and best wished coming your way.

I hope it goes to a good home!

I'd be all over this car if I didn't have the concern of cross-border importing.

Sorry to hear about your health....
Hope everything works out.

Best of luck to you. I too have a degenerative disease that, thankfully, has not affected me too much yet.

Someone is going to get a great deal on an awsome car.

Thank you all for your kindness, thoughts and prayers. Until someone makes an offer and shows me a check, the Vette is still mine. I'll keep you posted.

To quote Abe Lincoln "No one, not in my situation can understand my great sadness at this parting. To this place and the kindness of these people, I owe everything..." (A. Lincoln, Springfield, IL, April 21, 1864)

Warmest Regards,

Felix

Good luck , and best wishes. I will include you in my nightly prayer. Please listen to your doctors. Treatment failures occur, but, they occur more frequently when one doesn't follow orders. Good luck and God Bless. The car is just a car, good luck with your life. I wish you well. Oh, one hell of a car though!!!!!!! Dr.Bigg
