So much for calling Chevy to get a Z06 Brochure. I love my car, but the idiots at GM customer service leave something to be desired. I called the number that was posted here earlier and spoke with a lady, I wrote her name down somewhere, and asked about the 12-page Z06 brochure. She said "sure, I know what you are talking about." She further stated that they, meaning the reps, were recently authorized to send out that kind of info. Anyway, she told me my brochure was on the way and I even got an e-mail confirming it. So what do they send me? I got a fold out with a picture of every GM car on it. :curse: There were better brochures handed out at the auto show. There was a card in the envelope that said I could request more specific information if I wanted. WTF? What a bunch of crap. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_mad.gif I guess they really do expect the Z06 to sell itself, or maybe I shouldn't have told her that I already owned one. Anyway, I'm glad I finally did get my brochure from eBay. I got one off eBay for $18, but they are up to $54 now. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif I don't have time to bother with those numbsculls at GM customer service anymore, so I'm glad I went with the back-up plan. Good luck to anyone that tries to get one from GM. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

I got mine from the dealer when I ordered the car last May. You buy a car and the dealer does not give you the brochure. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif

Dealership gave me 2 brochures and 2 of the big fancy ones they come out with every year. He's given me 2 brochures (the $10 ones) every year since '93. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

z06scott,
Sorry about the $54 on ebay. That was me. I bought 2 in the last 3 weeks or so and each on was $52.00. I had 3 of the 2001 Corvette brochure's and had to get me hand on the Z06 brochure before they are gone 4ever. I did find out that the people selling the Z06 brochures on ebay are Chevy salesmen. So instead of giving the brochure to someone that just spent $50,000 on the car. They hide them away and sell them on ebay for their own benefit.
I also think that there are 2 Z06 brochures. The one that I bought was very confusing. On one side it has info on the Z06 and if you flip it over and open from the back it has info on the other models. I have never seen this one before. The one my friend has I remember it being just of the Z06. So the quest goes on to fing the other brochure also.

Z06Phil:
I have all three brochures, the 39-page Corvette brochure, the one strictly on the Z06 - 12-page brochure, and the one that is mainly on the Z06 and has a fold out of the other models. I got the one that you said you had never seen before for free, from a nice gentleman over at CF, the fold out one. I was lucky and the 12-page brochure, the famed "Z06 brochure," that I got off of eBay for $18 was actually the 12-page brochure. I noticed that a lot of people are disguising the 2001 39-page Corvette brochure as the 12-page Z06 brochure and then people are paying $50+ for it. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif I hope the people you dealt with turn out to be honest. I would hate to see you put out $50 for a brochure you can get at Chevy Mall for $10. Best of luck. Yes, I can see greedy salesmen hiding and selling these on eBay. If there is anything positive to be said about car salesmen, at least they make us lawyers look good. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif -- Scott

PT Barnum was right!!!!!! What's with this Fifty dollars for a Z06 brochure? Why bother. Instead get a 2000 Ferrari Yearbook and enjoy your self. What are people doing with these brochures? The presentation of this brochure is nothing out of the ordinary. These fuzzy pictures look like something out of Bob G's Magazine! Is it just going to sit on the shelf somewhere or will the kids get at it and destroy it? In a few months there will be a new one to chase after. They must not pay those Chevy salesmen much if they have to flog Z06 brochures on the side. You can get brand new Corvette brochures from GM Marketing for seven dollars! Get them from the source. Is the z06 finished after 2002 model year?

The dealer that I bought my Z06 from, gave me one of the nice 12 page Z06 only color brochures the day I gave him a check for my deposit. He said it was the only one that he had gotten up till that time. But I was the first to put down the cash and order A z06. That was back in early June of 2000. It is framed hanging beside the window sticker and original registration on my office wall at home. Looks very nice!

Criswell Chevrolet in Gaithersburg MD gave me the 12 page Z06 brochure a couple of weeks ago. They advertised that they had 5 Z06's in stock for sale in the Washington Post this weekend. Anybody in the Wash DC area ought to go there to get one (brochure).

I would be nice if someone scanned in some of the pages of the "famous" 12 page Z06 flyer so we could see what it's all about!
