Attention getting stories of your ZL1

I was just wandering, there are alot of ZL1 owners out there. Does anyone have any great stories of driving around town, going to a car show, or running an errand in your car and people stopping you to talk to you about your car? I am sure there probably are a lot of great stories out there. Does anyone want to share your story with us?

Hey, I get thumbs up just for my ZL1 shirt and hat! Best story: Coming home from Lake Arrowhead first weekend I had my car. "Accidently" got it up to 90 MPH on I-210. Got home 30 mins later and an LAPD helicopter was circling my house (weird because its CHP and LACO Sheriff area) Thought for sure i was getting an "aerial "ticket". After making about 6 passes over my house the copter loudspeaker comes on: "nice car man" and he takes off. Bow tie or die!

Took it to my first car show. The hottest blond chick in tight black shorts and a tube top comes walking up to the car with her dude in tow. She gawks down my car something fierce. Finally she asks me is this your car? Her dude standing there with his arms crossed and his tail between his legs says cumon lets go! She says you go ahead I'm guna ask some questions. He stormed off. I asked her, why is your dude in such a hurry? She said thats my brother!....She's now my girlfriend.....

Bumblebee

When I was in Invermere a few weeks back, I pulled up to one of the main stop signs in town where a 5 year old boy and his mother were waiting to cross. He took one look at the car, grabbed his mothers by the pant leg, pointed at my car and said "look mommy, its Bumblebee. On a side note I have the all black ZL1. Sharp eye young man.

Driving home 20 minutes after purchase from dealership - I was on the interstate and had just tested the speed of the car "slightly" above the speed limit. Not 30 seconds later a cop car pulls along side my driver's side. The two cops in the car just stare blank faced at me for what seems a lifetime. Im going to jail - i know it. Then, they both grin and give me a thumbs-up and drive away. True story.

I've only had my ZL1 for ~5 days, but so far I've had a parked motorcycle cop give me a thumbs up as I drove by, and a Camaro SS owner nearly rear-end the car in front of him as he hardcore gawked at me going by.

About two weeks after I got the car I was out driving at dusk on the way to the gas station and came onto a license check. I gave the officer my license and as he looks it over the other officers circle my car with flashlights checking it out. The first officer hands me my license back and says "all is good you may go." As I slowly pulled away not trying to make too much noise I hear one of them say "that's sweet." On the way home a few minutes later the check is still going on. As I pulled up they gave me the thumbs up and waived me on.

New Stories?

I started this thread I guess in Sept. I would like to know if any of you ZL1 owners have any unique stories similar to the other replies. I have not taking mine out much because of the winter weather. But Im sure I will have a cool story or two by the end of the year.

The other day while driving through my neighborhood past the playground a 9 or 10 year old kid starts running after me on the other side of the fence and waving frantically. At first I was caught by surprise, then I was afraid something was wrong. I stopped the car and rolled my window down and asked if everything was alright. He apologized and said he just wanted to tell me he loves my car and runs out to see me drive by when he hears me driving by his house. I said thank you and went on my way. I had never seen him before. A couple days after I was driving home through my neighborhood and just happened to look in my rear view and this same kid and his friend run out of the house and seemed to jump and cheer. I wonder how many times he had done it before but at least now now I know where to look. Now I make sure I rev a little more and engine brake by his house. I haven't seen him run out since then but if he's in there, I know he's smiling.

I get lots of looks when driving around. And no I'm NOT Topless, I drive a coupe. To tell the truth, I still haven't seen another ZL1 on the road. Lots of camaro's of every color and model, but not a single ZL1! And yes, I'm definitely looking. One thing that is for sure, every time I pull up to a stop light the BOZO next to me wants to race. Doesn't seem to matter what they're driving either, a pickup, a junker, or minivan, or especially a mustang, they feel compelled to race. Have to admit I kinda like that, I do enjoy looking at them in the rearview mirror!

My 22-month old daughter absolutely LOVES our ZL1 convertible. She can't say much at her age, but can make a growling car sound, point, and say "fast car." That says enough for me. One time, my wife was going to go to the grocery store, and our daughter was going with her. The garage door was open and my wife went to move our ladder into the garage. Our daughter saw the car and started walking over to it. My wife said, "No, we're going in Mommy's car." Our daughter flung herself on the ground and threw a fit because she wanted to ride in the "fast car." lol The attention the car gets from her is better than that of a stranger.

Once I was driving with the top down and was drinking an Amped energy drink. At a stoplight, a guy in a truck next to me rolled down his window and asked, "Is that car as amped up as that drink you're drinking?" I laughed and said, "Even more!" He laughed, gave me a thumbs up, and we drove off.

Another time, I was shopping in a Best Buy, and when I came out, I noticed there was another ZL1 parked next to me. The driver was still in the car and was j use waiting for me to come out. He said it was the first '13 he had seen. So of course we stood around and bs'd about the cars for a bit.

It's impossible to drive the ZL1 and not get comments or turn heads.
