And the wheels and tires will compliment your car, not as much as yours do but they will still look great... I'll get a pic of you trapping around 180-185 or so... and some video to take home with you...

Hell, give me enough notice and I'll come get you and drag your car down... save the wear and tear on it... 2 days up there, three days back... wont travel as fast with your car behind me...

Man if i still worked in Alaska and made the money i use to i would for sure! All my money use to be spent on racing full out Sleds with top sponsorship against the best riders in Alaska, my dream was one year away with the Iron Dog Race but then my father passed away suddenly and life just changed for me and my family. I think about it all the time winning the Iron Dog, toughest race in the world and brutal on the body and machine. Imagine riding in sub zero temperatures for 9 days straight covering over 2400 miles in the roughest terrain in Alaska. My friend Dwayne Drake who i rode with weekly is a past Champion and always tried to get me to race it but i always put it off to the next year every year and i regret it badly. Someday when things change i will take you up on that offer Robert~

Tim, I've always admired those men & women, but especially the beautiful dogs that would run in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race! The beauty of the lands, the Alaskan range, then along the shores of the Bering Sea, and then finally Nome....Cool stuff. Set your mind to it, and you can achieve anything you want! Hey, I think Kurt's rubbing off on me! And that would be a good thing!


Did you hear, my ZLX is becoming a *snowbird* and will be living in South Florida 99% chance, I'll know this weekend or we're going to have a little problem in the garage

Oh, that race Tim, my bad. I guess when I heard you say sled I thought of the dog sleds, but I have seen that race on snowmobiles and that's way cooler!!! Must be a true adrenaline rush!! Still though, keep at your dreams my brother!

At least your team has hope, I enjoy watching them play! The only thing I have to look forward to this year is collecting my bet that the Eagles wins would be under 7.5 My brother is a cowgirl fan , how I don't know? We weren't born in Dallas?? I'm not big on bandwagon fans, I believe that you support the team where you're from, unless they have no team, but that's just me.

Tim, got the bad new about the Stingray. BeckyD was working on a deal to get me one quicker than my original order. The Z51 constraint put the halt to all that. So...I guess it'll be a few more months. No biggie though, I'll just keep waiting!

All but 48 Z51 packages nationwide are on hold. I'm sure yours was ordered long ago. I placed my original order on Jul 5th, after deciding against a ZL1. Well, last week on Monday Becky had a pop-up allocation. We'd worked out everything, but on Friday the Z51 package went on constraint. Supplier shortage, I guess. Since the order had to be placed, and I won't go without the package the car was built as a base model. Not good for me! I'll have to reassume my original place, which is at 1100 status...

Wow. I had no idea. Have to admit after I got my vin I pretty much stopped paying attention to the constraints. I placed the order as soon as gm was allowing for it. May maybe?

Patience. It'll be worth it when you get it!!

It says less than 4 weeks on the constraint, but that deal is lost. My original dealer has to go through its initial allocations. They have 2 Z51 autos there now. One Torch Red, the other CGM. I want Black manual. So, I'll just wait. Congrats on yours, I think I posted in the thread over on the other forum. I think I got more time than money anyway, so I probably need to wait.

Better to wait anyways so you can get exactly what you want instead of getting a dealer allocated one not with the options you need or want!
