Look what pulled and park beside me

While I was at work yesterday I heard a loud rumble pull up outside my office. I thought it was of the Corvette that parks about 5 buildings away. I looked out the window and what do I see. A gentlemen and his 1968 Camaro parked beside my Z. So I walk outside to chat and take some of my own pictures. He could not believe that I have a ZL1 in Germany. He restored his from the ground up a few years ago. He also mentioned that he brought over his 73 Mustang last week and did the same. I was not in the office at the time was out in the company car. I do get a lot of Germans coming up and looking. On the 20th I am taking it to Kraft Works in Hünfeld, Germany so that they can install the Livernois SC pulley, Ariad Cold Air Intake, KD Heat exchanger, and the RX Dual Catch can. If the Hurst Shifter comes in time I will have them install that also. They are going to dyno it before and after with video and pictures. I will post updates as I get them. I really love this car!

Wow! Great pics. Both are beautiful cars. If you had the standard wheels, they'd look like twins.

And I find myself p.o.'ed with Illinois' requirement for a front plate. Now, I don't feel so bad. Can you say front billboard?

I feel so bad for you having to put that massive license plate on the front of that beautiful car. That would totally suck.

Very nice....hopefully he added a nice tall overdrive during the restoration to make it Autobahn ready.

Have you had the ZL1 up to speed yet?

I have taken her out on the autobahn a couple of times. On one trip it was pretty empty so I opened her up, I went up to 160mph this time. She still wanted to go put i was good for the first time. That has been the fastest i hVe gone in a car in my life. She was smooth and wanted to go faster. Next weekend She goes in for her first engine mods and tune. Livernois SC pulley kit, araid CAI, KD Inovation HX, and the RX catch can. I will post the pics and tune when complete. What to I do when she is gone?

I feel like the chances of this matchup in Germany just by chance are pretty much 0 lol.
