Looks like it would have been a good time to change your oil. Get a new C7 ZO6.

You were swerving to avoid another driver? Was he driving head-on into your lane? Expound please.

If you get another one put on some all season tires. They work better in the grass.

The wife is pretty cool about my addiction to cars, BUT this has changed her mood a bit. She wants me to get another lifted GMC sierra like I had before. Not a bad vehicle, but not a ZL1 either. I will miss the power and the way it drives way too much!

She actually loved it, but was a bit afraid of it.

It was on a curved on ramp to the freeway. He was sitting almost at a dead stop as I rounded the corner and saw he too late.

I'm not in your shoes so I can not judge the whole situation concerning getting a new ZL1. My first thoughts are that your wife wants you to be with her for a long time hence the fear of getting another one. Personally I would really work things out with your partner in life. Cars can be replaced (just takes $), a really good relationship is price less.

Glad you're okay!

Get another -- I once bought a car (wife really didn't want me to get it). Asked her to get in and go for a ride -- on the passenger seat I had placed a small stuffed bear holding a piece of jewelry. It worked!

Usually to get any parts or the car, you have to buy it back off the insurance company or have them deduct it off the claim check.
Sometimes it's worth it if there are enough salvageable parts.

I have bought back motorcycles and snowmobiles for rebuilding and parts, especially your aftermarket parts you installed.

Wow....sorry for the accident but glad you are ok. If I were you I'd get another ZL1 and you can use the safety factor of these cars as one of the best reasons to get another one when discussing with your wife. Based on where you live in FL I so no reason to get anything else except for maybe a Stingray. Hope everything works out for you.
