Arrow MY68RS' 2012 ZL1 Journal

This is my journey to unwind a bit on C5 as you can tell I like to talk a lot on C5!
I won't share a whole lot about myself as I want to dedicate this section
to my car the up and coming 2012 ZL1 that I have happily named Bruce Lee.
Yes, like chuck norris!
Am I fan of Bruce Lee movies you might ask? Some. They are ok..
But you notice no one ever beat bruce! Not even ol chuck!
If you are wondering and have seen my section before I decided since I have so much free time
on my hands before Bruce is born I decided to write and come up with ways
to spruce it up a bit. Someone mentioned pics..
Ok fine... All we have is pics from the ZL1 section. Here is what bruce will look
like when I get him sans the egg crate grill:






Bruce will have have the following options:
5 Spoke polished wheels, and the low gloss stripe package with black insert.
Everything else is standard.

7/12/11*
Went down to Young Chevrolet today in Dallas and got
on board with Bob Tyndall and talked about ZL1.
He told me to come back Dec 1st and we will start working out details
and getting ready for my ZL1 order!
This is a 50k car and is nothing to sneeze about so pray with me on this please
as I will need it im sure.
I have decided that Inferno Orange Metallic will be Bruce's color along
with the optional polished wheels UNLESS chevy decides to do another
one off or ZL1 specific color. No Mods are planned. What I can order from the factory,
he will stay all factory in appearance. Manual Tranny is a must. There is nothing that I could do to make this
$50k + car look any better. My money would be better spent making final payments!
My goal, half down, finance the rest. Bob told me he would help me see it through,
shook hands and told me to come back Dec 1st.
Gawd this is going to be the hardest next 12 months of my life but I am ready to start
NOW......again, please wish me luck. I will update my thread as we go along, or change of
plans, etc.

Hmmmm, A build thread with no build? j/k, So has it been said that Dec 1st is the date you can order the ZL1? You'll mod something, I'd be willing to bet money on that one.

The dealer was asking me more questions about the ZL1 as they did not know a whole lot about it, production date etc. They told me based off my information that I needed to be down there the first of Dec to start paper work etc.
They can not due any kind of preliminary check on credit / resources without a VIN number. They already understand even if they are allocated a ZL1 I do not want the first one that comes in; that I want to order mine. I have had plenty of new cars but never got lucky enough to order one. This will be a first for me in that regard.

I am a fan of mods. But im quite sure this is just one of those cars that you would not want to do anything to it as far as keeping it a collectible that need to keep its value etc. All mods do is depreciate the car and it will depreciate enough as it is when it rolls off the dealer lot.

Tint strips don't count! LOL
o well... a little don't hurt...
The first thing I do when I get any car....used or new is tint the windows.....
and do the tint strip.....usually before the car makes it to my driveway even...
so yea.... I guess I will be found guilty of tinting my windows...
We shall see... If the factory would darken em up a little there would be no need right?

Slightly off topic but its our thread anyway so what the hey...
Anyway, yesterday I drove past Young Chevrolet and noticed that they had a IOM with white stripes all the way down the front in the back. Its either a pace car or 45th.... not sure which.. Maybe pace car...
Gonna try and check it out tomorrow to see exactly what it is thats out there..
