    It's Going to be a Lonng 464 Miles...

    Hey folks -

    The sales manager at Lindsay Cadillac in Alexandria called me up at work today and said, "Hey... your car fell off the truck..." I knew he was jerking me around, so I finished his sentence, "and it landed on its 4 tires right in front of your shop, right?"

    I won't bore you with the details, but, suffice it to say the sales manager and the GM at Lindsay worked with me to make the right deal. They gave me enough for my Z06 (first time I've been Vette-less in.. ages) and accepted my GSU cert. After getting all the paperwork straightened out, visiting Luke in the parts dept. to sign up for the "V Day" at Summit Point, I headed on home.

    Details:

    Thunder Gray
    Black interior
    Recaros w/Suede surfaces
    6-speed Manual
    Navigation System

    And that's it.

    The drive home was torturous, as I really wanted to hammer it. But, too much traffic, and, I'm only at 36 miles so far. I've got some miles to put on it before June 29th arrives.

    I'll get some snaps of it posted soon. But, you've seen Gray Vs already, so there's not much new to see here. :-)

    Remember DOT4 and wrap your tie-rods with heat shield tape.

    Yep. There are a couple of other Track-Ready mods that have to be done to this car (per my source). The aforementioned are on the list, as are a couple more. :-)

    Thanks all.

    JVP,

    Congrats on the car.

    I am going to take my V out to the track in a month or two and a post with a list of track day mods would be great.

    The 464 will be over before you know it...I thought it would be a long wait too, but it only took me from Monday @ 7pm until Friday @ 5pm to do it. The long wait was waiting for it to actually arrive at the dealer...2 whole weeks from the time it shipped.

    Congratulations!

    I'm at just over 850 miles now, took me one week to get to 500 miles. Unfortunately, we have a winter storm going on right now and I can't play...so play for those of us in snow territory when you can!

    Congrats jvp. As of Friday mine was supposed to be here tomorrow. I bet they were on the same truck

    So tell me more about "V-Day" at Summit Point and this list of track mods. I just finished ordering some new track pads for my Z so I don't know that I'm ready to start buying parts for the V...

    I'll meet you up at Summit Point at the end of April, and we'll discuss it in person. :-)
