Looking forward to catching some cars & coffee action, and some meets/drives, I'm good with my right? I've been told it snaps necks, and not just by my passengers :headband:


I'll start to catch up on HT current affairs...Carry on gents
welcome back my man, can't wait to see that z51 of yours

Hey all were having a car show sometime early October for leo and also were finally doing our grand opening for our new location. I'm getting booths to come down, If you guys have any companies who would be willing to come run them by me and see if we can work something out with them.

Of course brother Rick, just make sure you pass your jet pilot training course first! It's whole lotta love under that driver's seat!
I should be a little further south of Manhattan Beach too!



Since I don't really have a thread anymore here, although I did bomb my ZLX thread earlier with some pics. I figured I'd keep my HT bros in the loop!

Now some more sneak pics of what's been added to the garage since the ZLX got sold.

I ordered a C7 in February, 2013, I wanted a LT1 with Z51 package & performance exhaust package, those were my main criteria. I was originally going to order black but since every sports car I've ever owned was black I felt a change up was needed. So I decided to go with Shark Gray Mettalic. Purchasing the 1LT package meant I didn't want all the fancy bells and whistle add on that GM uses to up the bill. My main concern was the Z51 package, 7 speed manual tranny, and dual sunroofs (clear & carbon fiber weave). Because of the Z51 constraint imposed by GM, it pushed my delivery date into 2014. That was good for a couple reasons, 1, it let me decide how I was going to make this C7 stand out above the rest & 2, I found a super deal on a 2009 Z06 owned by a 72 y/o gentleman down in Virginia. He was the original owner and one cool due, that many of us hope to be like at age 72! He's owned over 25 sports cars in the past 20 years alone.

So he basically made me an offer I couldn't refuse with a price more than $15K under book value & almost $20K in mods. The guy was just tired driving a 6 speed and not having a roof, so I came along to help him get rid of his problem. The Z06 already had a Vortech V-3 Si-Trim unit with a 4" pulley, along with the following added by the OG owner, a Callaway Honker C6 Cold Air Induction System, C6Z 1 7/8 American Racing Stainless Steel Headers, C6Z American Racing X-pipe with high flow cats, 02 Extensions, MSD 8.5mm spark plug wires, NGK Spark Plugs, C6Z Cam Package, ATI LS7 Underdrive Pulley, Gates Belt, LS7 Crank Bolt, LS7 160* Thermostat, F.A.S.T. 102mm Intake Manifold, C6Z Mild to Wild Switch, these were the main components that went into his build and all of which were barely broken in with only 2000 miles on upgraded build, and all work was done by LMR. After seeing their attention to detail and the performance to this car, it was a no-brainer that they would have my C7 to play with next. With all the mods the car dyno'd at roughly 175 HP over the stock 6xx, making a about 750 RWHP.
I amended my C7 order and instead of having it delivered to NJ, Steve & Josh of LMR both agreed it was best to have it shipped right to LMR in Houston, it saved me both money & time.

Here's the Z06 shots first:










2014 LMR800-TT C7












That's all for now folks, hold down the fort brothers!

Please tell me you still have the Z06 and it's coming with you. If that is the case, it may not stay with you for long!
