Hello all. I picked up my 06 a few weeks ago and I'm loving it. I have had a couple posts but figured I should introduce and post some pics of the ride. Look forward to being on the site and exploring your posts. You guys have already been a wealth of knowledge and ideas. Lots of expensive ideas.

I'm down in Tampa. Same thing here. Couple of three I have seen around town but that is it. I go up to Tally occasionally for football games. I'll try and catch up with ya. Just about my favorite town to party in.

Tampa, you say? They still have that WWII submarine tied up at a dock for touring down there? THAT was cool.

I'm North Tampa and I work down by the stadium. I get around all over though. I have a good buddy with a SRT8 Charger out in Riverview. I'd love to meet up sometime. I think Brian (Pisnuoff) and I are going to try and get together sometime this weekend.

Off topic; I just watched Love The Beast which is a documentary Eric Bana (Troy,Munich, Blackhawk Down) made about his 1977 Ford Falcon he has had since he was 15. He started racing it in the mid 90s and the movie is mainly about he and his friends growing up with the car and this big race he did a few years ago with it. Great car movie.

Congrats on the new ride! looks to be in great shape... are you sure its not an 07? I thought they only put the small GM logo at the bottom of the front fenders on the 07's

Thanks Natedog. Unless all my paper work is wrong, it is an 06.

A group of f-body fellas and I get together every thursday night out in Riverview, just an informal meet and greet type thing and then we are working with a local performance shop to set up something more regularly.

I'm a big Camaro guy so that would be fun. I just started a bowling league on Thursdays but maybe when it is done I can come by.

They're on my 06 also. Welcome to the club. I'm up in Jacksonville. Might be up for a road trip sometime. Will let you guys know.
