HE COMES BACK 45 minutes later. Says he just had to look at it one more time, went on and on about it to his kids, and that he will definitely order a Stingray Blue ZL1 by the end of the year.

I swear I should get some kind of commission check.

Nice story

No great story at this point, but I'm always surprised the reactions I get. I regularly get asked questions about the ZL1 when I'm at a gas station, and this is the first car I've had where someone has actually approached me to see if he could take some pics (of course, he was an SS owner looking to upgrade!).

Just today at around lunch time I stopped to fill up. When I pulled in a few guys standing around an old pickup truck at the pump next to me were "wowiing" the car and making positive comments. As they were leaving, an old guy (on a Harley) was walking out of the snack store and asking me if I would take $30K cash for it right there, (I don't think he was offering, just making conversation). I told him more like $60k. He looked befuddled by my response, so i said "you haven't seen one of these before, have you?". He shook his head, so I rattled off some specs and his jaw dropped, like he wasn't sure if i was a nut job or something. I asked him to come take a look and I popped the hood. I rattled off some more specs and when I looked up, there were three other guys walking up saying they had to take a look for themselves. Lots of positive comments and one old guy on a Harley who'll be dreaming about a ZL1 tonight.

Great story! I Have people coming up to me when I stop to get gas alot too. Most have no idea what a ZL1 is. I have had one guy say I have heard of an SS before but not a ZL1. Is the SS better than the ZL1. I of course tell him all the stats including the horsepower and he says Holys--t!

Yeah this is the first car I have had where people come up to me and ask questions about it regularly.

A couple of weeks after I got my car I seen a group of 5 teenage kids (boys n girls) from Korea (I think). They seen me come out and I asked them (Didn't know what they were doing until I asked )"What are you guys doing"?! One of them said we were just taking pictures of your car. We don't see any of these in our country. I said go ahead and take as many pictures as you want, just don't touch the car please. They said with relief "OK thank you very much" It was pretty cool.
