Dropped in to Carvaggio today to check out various customizing options.

Was told that the Z06 starts out as a vert and that the hardtop is "glued" on!:-? Therefore there is no need to reinforce body when making the conversion to either the vert or the coupe. I found this most surprising. I luv the vert, but wanted the performance of the Z. So, if John is correct, why won't the general let us vert luvers have a Z vert, without having to pay an additional $14K to get a custom mod?

Checked out some of the other stuff he has and was really impressed with the custom seats and interiors. Very cool.

He also cuts the tops on Z06's to make into convertibles, he does this on supplied customers cars, I was going to do that but never sold my convertible, he has also cut the tops off of a few Z06's that I know the owners. :)

Very interesting, but doesn't it defeat the entire purpose of a Z??? Its supposed to be the unltimate race enthusiasts car, and making it a vert adds a ton of weight, which is a race car no no
