Came up on it in the stop-n-go crush traffic of the Southbound I-5 at Santa Clarita...a burnt-orange metallic C6 with a wide, mean stance and incredibly wide tires...I knew way before seeing the badge it could only be a Z06.

I worked throught the holes in traffic and finally came along side, giving the driver a heartfelt thumbs-up. He waved back, a huge SEG all over his face.

Nice car. Coming from a company that still seems to think shoving a V-8 in a FWD car is a pretty good idea, It did my heart good to finally see GMNA build a car that needs no lame excuses, no caveats, no "Yeah, but" modifers.

Made my day.

Buddy of mine runs a dealership just down the street from my house and he let me take one for a spin:eek: they are lightning hit the interstate not really paying much attention and he had to tell me to slow it down b/c we going about 110 on a on ramp :willy: and it felt like 40:lol: Just wish I had the 75-80K their asking for the car. Could you image a twin turbo Z06 Vette or a S/C one:eek: that be like at least a 755 HP rocket:willy: hmmmm dreams seem to never com true.......

There's a guy who attends my school who owns a Black on Red Z06, I've never seen him in person though, just glimpses of him driving and parking in the lot.

Groucho, This is the first one you have seen in the wild. Wow. You drive like 250 miles a day, I'm just surprised that you haven't seen one yet. I live in a town with 20,000 people and I saw a Silver one pass through months ago before they were even for sale. It is a cool sight to see though. If I had the bucks I'd have one. They are saying that stock those things can run high 11's. WOW.

A friends went 11.66 at 126 mph with 18 miles on it. Literally picked the car up and drove straight to the track. That was only his second pass too.

They are running mid 11's with no problem. Everyone that puts DR's on or slicks gets told they can't run unless they put a roll bar in. My guess is with slicks you have a high 10's car.

I see them all the time here. I have "raced" one already with my Goat. It had a car on me before I hit 4500rpm's in 1st. By the top of third it had about 4 cars on me.
Oh, dude.

I sooooooo dig your signature.

"NO OIL FOR PACIFISTS" indeed.
