I ordered mine 07/08/2012 and took delivery of my 2013 Blue Ray Metallic ZL1 Convertible VIN# 2G1FL3DP0D9801378 on 08/29/2012 at Apple Chevrolet in Tinley Park, Illinois. I posted my vehicle pics on 10/02/2012. I do love the Crystal Red color and yours is certainly beautiful. I do not know if I was the "first", but I was certainly the so-called "first" ZL1 Vert owner around here and received mine considerably sooner than yours which is
being touted as the "first." Good luck with the mods. After consultation with several national upfitters, I have decided to keep mine stock for now and work on one of my other cars first.
