Brought the Z home

My Uncle in FL owned a 1994 Corvette ZR-1 until he died back in 1999. I've been after my Aunt ever since to sell me the car. She finally agreed this year, and I just got back home yesterday:

Re: Brought the Z home

so do we get to guess how much bank she cost you?

I believe riding, like life, is 10% what happens and 90% how you react.

You've got a thing about yellow cars.. maybe you were a Checker Cab in a previous life.

Re: Brought the Z home

Very nicely done, Evl! What are the performance specs on the ZR1?

Any plans for those (extremely protrusive) exhaust tips?

I'll try to be nicer when you start trying to be smarter.

9.6qts of oil I thought the 8 in the big mercedes was a lot.

sweet car. I was also thinking the same thing as Pete, whats the deal with the big exhaust tips?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I've never seen an LT-5 with a turbo. Not really likely without major engine surgery as stock compression ratio is 11:1.

I've been waiting for years for her to sell it. It's been killing me that the car has just been sitting and rotting. It's had about 500 miles put on it since 1999. But I put about 1500 on it since Friday

About what they book for. I sold my 1995 Indy Pace Car, and gave her all that $$$ plus some.

Yellow vehicles look nice Funny that I don't have any yellow bikes though.

Even though I can safely traverse the west side with those in place, those will be removed shortly. They are just extensions over the Borla tips. They gotta GO!
