I'm not saying a new Z is out of the question, but give the wife some time to sort it out. She's probably very scared right now. I'm sure she'll come around.

Glad to hear you are OK. Replace your ZL1 with another one and if your wife does not agree replace her.

Very cliche, but the car can be easily replaced. Thank goodness that is all that was really hurt! Go ahead and get a C7 Stingray.

hey now,

holy mackerel! that's crazy.

its good you are mostly okay, but trying to sleep with broken ribs and fingers is going to test your patience.

did the lawman fault the other driver? did other driver even stop? i have a dashcam just for this kinda thing.

did the onstar ask if you were okay?

the phone you were on your way to get better be a deusie

and finally you must ignore the wife and get another.

Wow! I feel your pain! Luckily for you, that pain does not include a serious head injury. I think that speaks volumes for the car and it's safety systems. Five star crash rating

All our wives would feel the same as yours given the situation. Hopefully this is just the first driving incident. Surely she'll come around if you really want another ZL1. I say go for it!

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.
