Posted in another thread also, but can't stop repeating myself

Sorry i didn't post last night. Picked him up after work and can't stop . From the initial start up you know Zed is in control . Taking it kind of easy getting to know one another, but squeeze the pedal a LITTLE in 2nd and .

Terrible cell phone pictures here sent by my dealer when he arrived. Proper ones will come later when he has had a full massage .

FBod, you were right!

That was # 162 that made it home with your black beast. She is getting inspected as I type. Found a couple of VERY minor blemishes, (ZL1 door seal sticker is lifting due to all the dirt that got under it, and a couple of months worth of dirt everywhere) but all and all she is going to make someone a very happy owner.

How soon before you get yours OldJedi? I'm anxiously awaiting some pics of a production CRT ZL1 that I can utilize for my desktop Would really like a pic from the front that gets the whole car in the picture with most of it in the forefront Thanks in advance.

I'm really excited for all the ZL1 owners, someday soon I'm going to join the ranks

Hey Becky, my guess for the QC release was April 9. Kind of cool that is turned out to be my actual delivery date!

I have never used Adam's products, so I'm probably missing out. I use some Turtle Wax ICE products and several Meguiar's. Most may laugh but the best wax I've found is 4 Season's Tre-wax for marine applications. It's a pure carnuba and comes off easily.

Experience so far is . The normal ride was a surprise. The touring mode is much smoother than my SS was. The highway to work has a lot of the tar strips and bumps. The SS exhaust would hit the tunnel brace on a few. Zed doesn't even notice them.

Oh and did I mention the torque ? A little pressure on the gas in 2nd and you can see the stability light come on (all well below 4,000 rpm).

I can see why Al is not worried about the 650hp GT500. It is going to come down to who has the best programmers. I haven't played with the PTM modes yet. The temps have been too cool to be able to safely attempt much (40-50's). Kind of really makes you wonder about the magazine numbers . Real numbers will be much better.

Awesome color! I have yet to see a bad color on this car. I was never a fan of rally yellow and this car looks awesome in it too.

Thanks for sharing pics. The cf exposed looks pretty sweet!
