Picked it up about a week ago... and absolutely love it!

First impressions:
wow Wow WOW
This thing is a monster!... the top of first and second gear completely scare me...
Best quote from a passenger, "WHOA... this thing pushes you back harder than any airplane at takeoff i've ever been in"

I very impressed with ride quality... i wasn't planning on it being my daily driver... but i cant seem to Not drive it everyday.

Still getting used to all the looks! Not to mention *everyone* want to race?! :wtf:

:D :D

P.S. First track event is Oct 22 (Thunderhill Raceway in No. Calif)... cant wait...

Now all you have to do is order some CCW C14's w/ 18x13 rears and get some 345 30 18 meats on the back :devil:

And then cam, intake/heads, headers, etc, etc.......

Happy Birthday. The V was my gift to me like that. As they say, no one can take better care of yourself then you. Many safe miles. Here's some change for good luck.

Just kidding. But if I'm ever out your way, I want a ride! Like the C5 Z06 is THE optimal affordable track car today, I hope the C6 will be my track car somewhere down the line...

Wildwhl "You got a a new zed-ought-six?"
Dreamin "They told you I had a car? They're such comedians. They meant my little mule, Pepe."

Rolling burnout in 3rd gear ensues...

Dreamin "Not bad for a little mule, eh?"

Pepe comes to a screeching stop like catching the three-wire on a carrier.

Wildwhl "What are we stopping for?"
Dreamin "I can't hurt my favorite clutch."

Dreamin "See over there by the church? That's where my mother was born. See that tree? The third tree up the ridge? My brother planted that tree."

Seeing the zed pumpkin breaking every moving vehicle violation known to the state of California, the CHP's finest join in hot pursuit.

Dreamin "OK, Pepe, let's lose 'em."
Urbanski "This guy's crazier than I am."
Dreamin "Gracias."

The zed takes the freeway exit ramp at a buck fifty.

Wildwhl "What the hell ya doin'? That busy road was cover."
Dreamin "I wanted to show you this other road. This guy who's following us, he's very persistent."

Crashing through the CHP barricade, the zed is now on fire...

Dreamin "No problem. My little mule is fireproof. See that river?"
Urbanski "The one without the bridge?"
Dreamin "It is the water supply for many cities. What do you mean, without the bridge?"

Wildwhl "The one without the bridge."
Urbanski "Where the hell you going?"
Dreamin "Lupe's Escape. I used it often in the past."

The zed flys across the river like a Dukes O' Hazard Charger...

Dreamin "You're OK now. You need a little mule to use Lupe's Escape. That river is impossible to cross for miles in either direction. In fact, over that mountain the river becomes wild. Muy peligroso. Waterfalls, rapids."

Settling back into a sixth gear zed cruise at 140 the zed crew takes in the beautiful mountain vistas...

Dreamin "Angelina Jolie country. Right, Wildwhl?"
Urbanski "Whatever happened to Lupe?"
Dreamin "Terrible disappointment to the family.
Wildwhl "I can imagine."
Dreamin "He entered the priesthood. So I took over the business. It is for the best. I'm not so reckless."

As the zed sails off into the sunset, the camera pans back...

Dreamin "Hey, let's hit it. We're on a roll."

I got a watch for the big 40, man did I get hosed!
Gorgeous car, enjoy!
Saw a video of a modded out Z called "sludgehammer" that was running side by side with a McClaren SLR. C6 Z is incredible!

Ya, sweet deal man..
My bro got one for his B-day back in Jan and loves it to death...Wont let me 10 feet of it with the keys in my hands. Pulls hard in 4th and never seems to run out of power even around 180mph...Wanted to go that bit more, but ran out of road FAST...

Nice Dreamin!

I had a ride in one at Road Atlanta. Zinging beyond 6K just doesn't seen right in a push rod. Best bag for the buck. Just bring an extra set of brakes to the track if your running it hard. And watch out for C5Z's at the track and especially is guys in lowly coupes near the 2900 lbs mark. :)

Good luck!

Congrats, Sweet, Damnnnnnn, etc...

Best car on the planet, best value on the planet, best Euro-beater on the planet, etc...

You can never say everything you want when complimenting the Z06, and I, too, am jealous!!!!

Just to clarify:

1) For the 'Vette, Silver or more specifically, Machine Silver Metallic, is the fastest color
2) For the V, Black still rules

Please refrain from any questions, as this is well documented and proven.

I wanted DSOM on my V, I waited for 2 years for Caddy to offer up the color of your Vette (or anything other than black or silver). I would have settled for Atomic Orange but I got stuck with another GD black car!

DSOM and VELOCITY Yellow make the Corvette world go 'round, that is one bad azz ride.

I got my ass walked on by one of them new Velocity Yellow Z06 things in my C3, they're plenty speedy. I'm sure it was because it was Yellow, the Silver cars are slugs.

Exactly how I would buy a Z06. :drool::drool::drool:
Good investment too.

My dad just bought an Atomic Orange, drop-top, paddle, BLACK interior. :cookoo: :thepan:
I begged him to consider a Z06 :gah:.



NICE.

The Z06 should be at least as good of an investment as the 1978 Pace car or the 1990 ZR1.

Get a Z06 and go out and WHIP ON IT!

If that were true, that would put the C6 drop-top n' paddle somewhere between a Indy Fiero and a Citation X11? :eek:
