Don't worry - you can't. It's not just about the performance, or I'd stil be waiting for many more years to get a ZR1

Very smart. Huge Z/28 with a LS7 advocate. Liks to party. He left for SEMA on Monday. We have had no contact since the plane door closed. The police sent this roof surveillance image. #299 is the third from the left. He is a #3 wannabe....

I'm predicting this thread will be at 50 pages before the ZL1 even shows up.

Now that I think about it #2.99 looks a lot like DRAGONEYE. Hmmmmmm. Have we ever seen #2.99 and Dragoneye in the same place at the same time? Please post your favorite Dragoneye photo for analysis in forensics.

Hopefully I'll have the car in time for spring/summer next year, and I'll use this thread as a more of a journal than build thread...since I think the car is just about perfect as-is.


It should look something like this......

Attachment 300973

Attachment 300974

Attachment 301448


I've got such a huge grin on my face, I can't even believe this is happening!!!!
I ordered the same but I have a question. What is the option code or combination to get the hood the way it is in the pic. My dealer and I were confused because the insert from what we understand only includes the vented area. The area behind the vents up to the windshield looks painted. What is the option to have it the way it is in the pic?

Let me help you...

Joe...

ZL1...

Tom Henry RPO (See 1FLA option on my build sheet as an example..)

Special paint options (see Doug's wheels)




You know, the TOM HENRY/FBODFATHER treatment....



All done in order to allow Joe's closest friends to enjoy the build process with him.
