Question Super Chevy Show in Memphis this Weekend

There is a Super Chevy show in Mempphis (Millington), TN this weekend (April 13-15).

Is there any chance that GM will have a ZL1 there?

Is there any chance that a proud ZL1 parent might bring the new baby out for a show?

This might be my best shot at seeing one before placing an order later this year for a 2013. From what I have read and seen here, I don't have to see one before I buy, but it would make me feel better.

Mine is supposed to be here this week, and it might be possible that I would take a road trip to Memphis. Have to see how the week works out.

WOW, that would be great.

If you do, please PM me so I can give you my cell. I would love to see it and hear your review so far.

Congratulations on getting such an AWESOME car!

Funny thing is, right now it is sitting in a holding yard in West Memphis so you are closer to it than I am.

Mines in the same holding yard per yesterday's call to Chevy cust service. Can't see why they wouldn't move it across the river to the dealership today.

thebatdude- Did you place an order for a ZL1? If so, where?

DangerouSS- Where did you place your allocation?

DangerouSS, my dealer indicated that the vehicle had to be bayed at this holding yard for 3 days before it could be delivered. It could be a customs thing, not really sure.

I hope to place an order for a 2013 ZL1 in July or August.

However, everyday I read how great they are causes me to review my budget and see about moving it up closer. Also, it would be great to have it for as much of the nice weather as possible. I am sure it will be even harder to wait after the ordering opens up which I think is in May.
At the moment I believe I want a Red one with an automatic. Now that there is a Nav system, I may or may not opt for that but I will have to consider it. There may be other surprise options or colors for 2013 that make me adjust my choices but we'll see. Hopefully the price remains the same.

That would be great. I have relatives in Arkansas and I tend to go to some concerts in Little Rock that we don't get. Between those, I travel fairly regularly that way so I could probably even meet you there.

I don't suppose the rail way company would let me in to take a few pics?

Turbos, SuperCharges, Naturally aspirated, Camaros, Chevelles, Corvettes, anything Chevy is great to see. I think there is a Memphis Camaro Club also. I will have to join after I get one. Anyway, come on down!

The race track was closed for most of last year while being purchased and being rebuilt. I believe we should have a lot of people that have been Super Chevy starved so I hope it is a big turnout. The old shows were pretty good for racing, car shows and vendor booths. Come on down!


It should be a Good time for all, especially now that Camaros are back!

Yes! Bring all the Chevy's you guys can! I will sadly only be able to make Test N Tune Thursday night. I will be out of town visiting my sick grandfather Friday-Sunday in Tupelo, MS so I'll miss out on the rest of the fun festivities. I hope there is a big turn out Thursday night though.

And yes there is a Midsouth Camaro Club. I am one of the internet correspondents actually so if interested PM for info and details. Also check out the links in my sig.

That's awesome. Do you live in the area or just ordered through them?

If you can come to SuperChevy that would be great! If you live anywhere near here, I would love to meet up with you to see it in person and hear what you think. My mind is really already made up, but it would be great to see one.

Congrats on your ZL1!

Thank you. I live in Germantown. Nice to know there's a Camaro club here. I'll look into it. I haven't see a ZL1 yet either. Just a bunch of ZLporn on this site so far.

Hey guys I just have to chime in here seeing so many local people. There was a ZL1 in Memphis at the Cook Convention Center back in Jan 2011. I was there and saw it but at the time I didnt know what it was. Of course the doors were locked but you could walk and look all around it. I thought it was some sort of concept. Later on I heard about the unveiling in Chicago. When I saw it I called my wife in to look and tell me I wasnt crazy. Anyway it's cool to see that there is another f-body car club here. Maybe i'll join.

Are all of the local ZL1s still sitting in the rail yards or has Ultra-Grin hit our local streets yet?

How's the chances of anyone bringing one to the Super Chevy Show looking?

Here's a link for this weekend's show. http://superchevyshow.com/
Here's a link for the race track's site. It has a 1/4 mile strip and road course.
http://racemir.com/


Maybe someone can drive one enough to break it in and give us all some times or more personal driving/racing feedback.
