One weekend I took the ZL1 to a Gophers football game. Drove down fraternity row with all the college kids tailgating. Every stop light I had people yelling at me to rev the engine. I love driving down that street!

My favorite was when I took my brother for his first ride. We were driving through a part of town that is known to have cops everywhere. Came around a corner (going the exact speed limit) and sure enough there was a cop handing someone a ticket. He was walking back to his car and was staring us down as we were approaching. I'm thinking...oh sh*t, less than a week and I'm already getting a ticket for no front plate. As I go by he's opening up his car door, and I'm slowing down waiting for him to signal me to pull over. He gives me a thumbs-up and stands there with his door open watching the car as we drove by...slowly...

Cool Stories!

THEN the F250 realizes he's about to miss his Exit and suddenly drops behind me, hard swerves over to the right, and nearly takes out the RS that had pulled up behind me. They were both so distracted the F250 nearly rolled over the RS like Big Foot smashing a voltswagon bug. They swerved out of each others way nearly taking each other out !

Was awesome !


I would hope nobody gets into an accident or gets hurt from a ZL1 sighting...

I had a sheriff deputy pull up behind me before I was even able to leave the dealership lot. He walked up to me while I was doing the OnStar activation and acted like he was going to hand me a ticket and said, "Let's just go ahead and get this over with." I saw him again a few days later where he waved me over in a parking lot. He asked how many tickets I had, and I replied, "None yet because nobody can catch me." He just laughed and drove off.

On a drive back to the Dealership right after getting the car, the police were interviewing a babbling transient at the main entrance of the lot. By the time I found my way through another entrance and crept between cars through the lot, I spotted the salesman who sold me my car. As we BS'd through the passanger window, up rolls the police car. The cop rolls down this window and asked "Is that the new ZL1?" The salesman replied, "Yeah our first one!" then goes on to say to the cop "You going to have a tough time catching this one." Right as I sunk down lower into the seat thinking to myself, not a good thing to say, the cop yells over to me... "WANNA TRADE!?!?"

A few months ago I was sitting at Sonic with my wife in the passenger seat. I had placed our order and while we were waiting, one of the waitresses rolled up and said "Oh my God. You have the sexiest car I have ever seen." Before responding, I turned to my wife and shockingly she replied, "Yes he does." I just knew she was going for the gun under the seat to blow this girl away! I told my wife that was the sexiest thing she had ever done. lol

Got another one:

My co-worker owns a Nissan GTR. One day after leaving work he left the office just before I did, and by chance I came up behind him at the freeway on-ramp, he was still a good 4-5 car lengths ahead of me, BUT once he spotted me in his rear view mirror he Gunned It ! He never gave me a chance to pull along side.

And of course, I had to give chase...

About a quarter mile or so down the freeway bypass I passed him on a banked right curve on the outside lane like the scene from 'Days of Thunder' and took the lead, crossed lanes in front of him, then took my Exit.

He's never ever spoken of that night since...

My cousin from out of town was visiting the other day and has never heard of a ZL1. I asked him if he wanted to go for a ride and he hesitantly said "Yeah sure??" About the halfway point of our ride I floored it from a roll in 2nd gear and ole cousin "Nancy" started freaking as slammed 3rd gear. As the ZL1 slowed to a legal speed, out of his mouth comes "I hope this thing has heated seats, if not, I might have just shit my pants!" -CLASSIC

I was driving home thru my subdivision doing about 20mph (well within posted limit) and as I passed this elderly woman walking her dog she was yelling at me to slow down lol, I guess the exhaust note made it sound like i was going faster than I was
