Spike's turn in a ZL1

I'm up in Fayetteville, NC this weekend for work and being friday, I went out to meet up with the Camaro South crew. While chatting with a few people, I look over my shoulder and see an IOM ZL1 pulling into the parking lot.



As it turns out, my friend Mike (tnspd) sold his 2SS and bought a ZL1. Unfortunately, he is "out of town" right now (he'll be back sunday IIRC), but his wife Wendy brought the car out... and after a little "coercing" she let me take it for a spin... and as I promised her... I didn't romp on it.


Great meeting up with the Camaro South crew again!

Thanks again Wendy (and Mike) for letting me drive the ZL1!!!


Enjoy

No worries man... maybe I should have gone for a third spin for a longer drive... wonder what Wendy would have done if I would have torn out of the parking lot that second time around...

Thanks. I love having the friends that I have. The Camaro South crew is beyond top notch people.
I don't always get to hang out with them when I come up, but when I do, they always make sure that a good time is had by all.

Glad you finally got to drive that beast and see it in person. Even though the pics may look good....they are nothing compared to seeing it in person.
