Tim will be with you "always and forever". I am sure you feel his presence daily. Please accept this token of our appreciation for you, simply being yourself. Kathy said the smiles on the photo will last forever and ever!....

I also thought it fitting that Tim & John be together with the ZLX...

Brothers Forever!!......

John, I also included the following link to one of my favorite tunes.....I hope you will enjoy not only the photo, but the recording as well. It speaks volumes....God is GREAT!!..

Kurt, as I've told you, words cannot express the thankfulness I have for you, your time over the years, your shoulder, and all the things & doors you've opened for me. Thank you so much for the pictures of me & my co-pilot, I know he's always with me.

You're one of those people that comes around once in a lifetime and I'm so glad to have known you & be able to call you a friend. The Kellers will always hold a dear place in my heart!

P, thank you for all your support from Day 1 with my build, and I'm glad my first set of wheels & tires went to you so we'll always be connected and I'll have a little piece of the Bullet!

It pains me to have to say this, but the ZLX is SOLD, and it couldn't go to a more deserving individual. He may not have 500 posts or be active on the forums that much, but he has followed my build since day 1 and we've communicated for years, as he's come to me for advice and to try to emulate the ZLX, and made it known that if it were ever for sale he would surely want the opportunity to own his dream car. I really felt like a parent choosing a family for adaptation of a child. It was narrowed to down to 3 buyers, one wanted to convert to a straight up track car, another wanted a show & go car and the third, well, it made his dreams come true. I could've started a bidding war, but that's not my style. I wanted this car to go to someone that would respect it, honor it, appreciate all the blood, sweat & tears that went into it, and make his heart pump as it did mine when I stepped on the gas pedal, and I think I made the right choice.

This car has made my dreams come true of being in Hot Rod magazines, being featured at the GM Nationals and meeting tens of thousands of people that fell in love with my creation. It will always be the ZLX and now the pride of someone else's life and I know he'll do it & me proud. Hopefully he'll step in and introduce himself, but I'll leave that to him and I guess he may even start his own build thread, but I'm not sure how much can be added, as I think it's perfect the way it is. I'll have many excellent memories and it's made me lifelong friends, and I hope to continue those relationships!

Kurt, will you ever get tired of hearing, "You're the man!!!", my friend? I hope not, because YOU ARE THE MAN!!!


As I mentioned, and it breaks my heart to say, but I know I'm making someone else's dream come true....The ZLX is SOLD.....Time for my next chapter in the Chevy world!

I want to thank everyone that followed my thread, the constant words of encouragement only fueled my fire to make it better & better, and it will always be the fastest, neck snapping, head turning car I've ever owned.

Big THANK YOU to Cunningham MotorSports for making the perfect world beater, Ryne & Tex you guys are the best & Thank you Rick for bringing me to them and all your support, and to Mr. Pedders, Pete Basica, thank you my friend for ALWAYS being there and making the best products in the world!! I'm proud to be Team Pedders and look forward to my next chapter!

Of course this won't be my last post as I have a few more ideas and want to send off the ZLX in an honorable fashion, so I'll be back!

Hello everyone my name is Alfred or also known on here as fisherboy561. Im proud to say that i'm going to be the new owner of the ZLX and will be bringing the ZLX down to South FL. As John stated in his last post I do not have several post on here but have always followed the ZLX build since day one. John has been very good to me and always has time to give me great advice. I will do my best to keep updated photos and info of the ZLX on here and as John stated earlier, there really can't be a build thread because John has left nothing else to do to the beast!! We'll I hope to meet all of you that have followed the ZLX build in the future and thanks again John for everything, i'm truly honored to be the new owner of the ZLX!

Welcome Alfred,
Congrats on an outstanding acquisition. I am sure the ZLX will fit the bill. All of us on C5 have come to love that ride and watch it become one of the best, if not the best Gen 5 on this forum. I always told Kathy, "If I had a fourth bay on my garage, that precious piece of gold would be bedded down between my babies....

Yes, it is THAT NICE!!

Keep in touch Alfred!

Now, as for you John, my friend--What a honor it has been to not only know you, but watch you grow in your love of God and others as well. You always say to me things that make me proud to serve Him. I remember the first time I typed something on this thread...Your getting the 'eye candy' engine cover from Roger at Emblempros.com. I knew then I had found a new friend. It just evolved into a far away friendship...
I can hardly wait to watch what happens with the new C7....JOHN...KATHY AND I MET OUR 1st BLACK C7 ON OUR WAY HOME FROM CHURCH ON SUNDAY!! I told her, "Lookie....Here comes John!"...

Our hearts skipped a beat....Now...What can I do with a C7 on my editor???...

Guess we will just have to wait and see....

John, The picture I sent via email, with Tim, you and the ZLX, You might take that to Wal-mart and try to have them create a canvas print. John Blount, whom has a C6 IOM, took a photo we shot and had that made into a canvas...It is the size of the trunk area on his vette. It turned out SWEET!!

Just an idea....

Later John...

Kurt ABL99...

Thank you Solo, it was a very hard decision deciding to sell or not to sell, and it brought many a sleepless night. At first I thought I was doing the ZLX an injustice by selling it so soon, and I really think had the car not gone to Alfred (Fisherboy, see quote below), that I may have not sold it. I had several interested parties and probably could've started a bidding war, but when Al said he was serious about owning it, I knew it would be the right thing to do, and especially after meeting him & spending the day with him today, I know it will be well taken care of and truly appreciated, and that's all I really wanted. I felt more like a father having to trust someone to watch over a child, as silly as that may sound. But as car enthusiast know, you get a certain connection when you build something special, and you want to see it go to the best possible home. Having lived in South Florida back in the early 90s, I can think of no better place for the ZLX to go, I can just see it now cruising down A1A, snapping necks along the way!

Al, it was truly a pleasure to meet & spend the day with you today. It only reconfirmed what I already knew, that the ZLX would be going to someone that will carry on the passion for it and continue to let it evolve. Feel free to use this thread to continue to post updates should you wish, my build journal is now your build journal. I know you will love the car and it will give you many years of enjoyment, and I look forward to see you make it yours and put your touches on it. The ZLX has made my dreams of having a car in a hot rod magazine come true, and I wish you the same pleasures it has brought me. Nothing can or will ever takes it place as being one bad ass, super fast ride that ALWAYS put a smile on my face, and I can tell after today seeing how happy you were, that it will do the same for you! Be safe and keep us updated, I'll talk to you soon!

Kurt it only figures that you would be the first to welcome Alfred, you're one class individual and I'm honored to call you a friend. I know Al will take good care of the ZLX, and it really made me feel good knowing it will be appreciated and well taken care of. I will certainly be printing all of your masterpieces you've sent me, and they mean very much to me, but I think you know that! I look forward to seeing what you come up with next!!
