kids and your ZL-1's

I Thought it would be fun not for just us as the owners of cool cars but for our younger kids to see themselves posted on the forum with their parents cars.
So if you have any pics of your younger kids with your ZL-1 & or any other fast cars post them up so we,yourself & most important the kids can enjoy them..
Here is some pics of my son running around during FASTLANES customer get together with the keys of my ZL-1 standing in front of it like he owned it(his idea,lol)...Then he wanted to go around to other cars and pretend he had the keys to them,and in one of them he is pretend to pull the BATT power cut off switch on a FASTLANE road course Camaro,lol
He was so excited about the new white C7 vette when it was started and all 600plus hp (heads,cam,etc) roared around him as he was standing really close to the back,his hair stood up it seemed !
There is nothing I like better than sharing cars with my kids he is the youngest of 3..he can not wait to drive it after seeing his 24yr brother do it...
Also there is a picture of the girl in the family only a couple days away from being legally able to drive on the street. She can get a hardship at 15 to drive since I am disabled,so she is really working me,BUT LOL ...i think thats called gee the keys may say ZL1,but they fit the $500 beater in the back...

My kids are trained. They wash there hands and take off their shoes before getting in. Bikes are walked in the garage and there is no playing in the garage. Shock collars aren't just for dogs...

Cars are a shared passion at my house. I'll trade a few scrapes and dings for kids that share my hobbies any day.

Not to hijack the thread, but I will be in a ZL1 soon and was looking for feedback from those that use their ZL1 daily as a family car. I take my 3 yr old son to and from daycare which is about 20 miles round trip. Has anyone put a carseat in the middle? Would it even work? I can picture his feet resting on the center console but he's used to seeing where we are going in my current vehicle.
I'll be going to a dealer this weekend to do a carseat test.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Probably wouldn't be safe on the hump in the middle. Car seats fit fine in the back on either side.

Car seat will not work in the middle. It has to be placed on the sides in the seats.

Both my children love cars! Here is my 12 year old son rebuilding his first SBC for race car ( Grandfather's ). He did all the tear down and will do everything to rebuild it minus cam bearings. He begged for the last year to do this. He wants to build his first car and is already saving his $$ for it.
