hmm ... since the title is about the ZL1, it shouldn't really be in gen auto. I can fix that though.

There, now the title matches the forum its posted in

...

.....

It's interesting...some days - you believe you have the best friends in the world....

...other days....you come to realize you're being watched more often than you'd like to be....

And yet on others....you remember how to view, in detail, which moderator change the title of this thread to...


But this day.....THIS day - you drive one of the most kick-ass cars in the WORLD...and that alone is enough to make what the knuckleheads are doing in your journal thread funny.



hmrhrm - to settle a rumor that a certain speed-challenged moderator started...no, I did not fill up Lazarus with diesel....

...the kind gas station attendant (apparently retired from GM), banged on the window to stop me just as I slid the credit card in. That....and the 40 "octane" rating button on the pump raised my eyebrow...


...and to address another little quip - I was not trying to figure out how to get the car out of the showroom...in a fit of nervousness being so close to Lazarus....Chris pooted....

...finally........THIS IS THE MOST EVER-LOVING COOL CAR I'VE EVER SEEN, HEARD, OR DRIVEN....EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HOLY SWEET MOTHER OF MERCY!!!

Welcome Back J.

It's been one heck of a party, but we know you weren't missing it since you were out driving Lazarus...

Tom Henry treated me (us) to one of the most wonderful delivery experiences I think I'll ever have....that is, perhaps until we buy our next car from him...

To start - we arrived Saturday morning to a salesman greeting us outside....

"You here for the ZL1?" More of a statement than an answer...

"Yeah - how'd you guess?"

"Well....you're all smiling - so you're definitely not here to pick up a COBALT, I bet! Hahaha."

...my other car's a Cobalt...

Annnnnyways....then he promptly shook my Dad's hand, saying "you're going to love this new car!"




Later - he realized his mistake and was good-natured about it, meanwhile John D, the salesman who handles most of the THR sales was simply brilliant about the whole introduction experience. Helping me through OnStar (who pretty much blew me off...the system was down, can't activate - sorry!)...showing me the functions of the car...and expressing a genuine appreciation for the thing.

In fact, all the guys in the area said the same thing (which did nothing to keep my already inflated ego in check)..."People are walking right by that grand sport convertible to get to your car!"

Yep - the car was in the showroom, as the pictures showed...and Tom kept my keys under his own personal surveillance to make sure nobody could do anything to it.

Weasel stickers in the car, bottle of wine, THR shirt, hat, ALL my associate build papers and documents....which by the way - he had the mailed window sticker laminated in such a thick plastic I think it'll outlive me!!...and a smokin' deal on this car to boot.

Honestly - I felt like a King, no joke. To top it off...he took us to the "Barn"...which is about the coolest place for a gear-head to be.

Tom is a class-A guy, as are the staff members of Tom Henry Chevrolet. I eagerly recommend anybody check them out if you're thinking of buying a car. It's so worth it...they've got the small-town, family feel that is so hard to come by these days.

And lastly, but CERTAINLY not least....gtahvit, aka Tran, aka that little snot who wouldn't tell me where my thread was at!!!!!.....flew all the way up from Florida and back in the same day just to spend that 6 hours with us as the papers were filed, and I got to fire the car up for the very first time.

...I can't quite put into words what that meant to me. I joked about about good friends...truly - it doesn't get any better than that. Thanks, brother!
