My Z06

I got tired of waiting with no updates at all on my ZL1 order. So I started shopping for a used Z06.

Found this one. Drove from Missouri to New York and bought it. Me and my dad were awake for 37 hours straight driving there and part way back. All this for about 2000 more than I would pay for my ZL1. Car is crazy fast.
