Talking Argenteus Lives: Dragoneye's 1LE

EDIT: Formerly "Lazarus Lives, Dragoneye's ZL1"...I have since bought a 2014 2SS/1LE RS...visit the most recent pages for pictures and discussion......if you want to.


Guess what I orderrrred?

Mr. Tom Henry will be putting the order into the system for me on Saturday when the system opens.



Ordered a Silver Ice Metallic ZL1. Black Satin hood insert, black wheels, suede interior package.
Manual Transmission.

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......

First, Joe...I hate you.

Really.

I can't stand your superhuman maturity...your ability of restraint...no spending money...saving for 4 years...to get the car of your dreams. It's simply not right. Nobody should be able to do that...

You...freaking MEANY




Ok. Now that I got that out of my system....

I must say....

Joe, I've waited for 4 years to see this thread started. FOUR YEARS.

You have no idea the true happiness I have right now (and over the past few days as this has come to fruition) to see this started. But, to see it before my very eyes....

It's amazing, "little brother!"

I can't even begin to tell you (and everyone else) how truly happy I am for you.

Oh HELL YEAH, I agree!!!

For someone who's waited this long and who's been this faithful, I...well, I don't think there is anyone more deserving of the car...just wow... !

And Joe, when you take delivery, I WANT TO BE THERE!!!
