If your heart was set on the Z/28 then wait it out ... The ZR1 is a beast but it sounds impulsive. The "maybe I should have waited" thought will enter your mind. Good luck and keep us posted.

Ran 45 minutes of errands yesterday in my Z/28, 100% of thoughts were how much I loved the driving experience, 0% were wishing I was in a different car. It's beautiful to the eyes and emotionally evocative deep in the gut level.

If you think the ZR1 will do the same for you, don't hesitate to buy it. If the Z/28 triggers a response instead, then you have no choice but to wait. Simple decision really

Eventually life gets too short to compromise.

Funny story: While parking at the farmer's market a couple weeks ago, a 70 year old woman came up to me asking about the car! She was enthralled. Now I'm not a granny-chaser :-) but that is an example of a gut-level appeal that very, very few cars have.

#59 took.....wait for it......59 days from build to delivery to Houston. Heck, you're only at around 45 days. And yeah, it sucks.

imo, get the ZR1(color?), you'll have 2 vettes in the stable. Or just wait it out. How about a slightly used GTR?

I agree with Zfat -- buy whichever really floats your boat, and don't worry about the wait. Unless you trade frequently, what's a few weeks if you own (and enjoy) the car for five years? At least that's what I kept telling myself during the long "Wait For 28"...

I also can't emphasize enough that -- IMHO -- anyone taking delivery of a Z/28 should carefully inspect the paint. The long wait before shipping seems to have created quite a few cars with paint issues. My personal advice is to request hand wash only, with no power buffers, so that you can inspect the paint and then have a professional detail the car...

Found a used ZR1 Vette local for the same price. Very, very low miles. Immaculate. Still has powertrain warranty. I could be driving it tomorrow.

Wife says Vette. I'm not sure.

This is going to be a restless night.
The vets are everywhere. The Z28 is not. One problem yours is not with you yet.

Every car show I go to, many people crowded around the Z28 but no one looking at the Vett no mater what kind it is. The non AC car is going to be a hit.

Easiest way to tell an AC car is the 150 rule.

AC option is 1,150. Nearly all AC cars listed prices end in 150 even if marked up.

How hard was it to order a no-AC car? First two dealers refused. In case I backed out, they didn't want a no ac car on the lot.

Since only 7% were no ac, I'm going to say it's a safe bet that most if not all were special orders.

Sidebar -

My wife's CTS-V was originally going to be a ZR1.

2 problems.

Dealer markup

And we both think the C6 Vette is kind of ugly.

We can fix the markup now, but we would be stuck with ugly.

You know the old saying "first time shame on them. Second time shame on me. " I would get the ZR1. It's a way cooler and faster car and you won't be giving GM any of your money.

On saturday at a mcdonald's drive through the teenage girl at the window said right away.."That's my favorite car." I said "Thanks" and then figured she just liked camaros. I then said, "Do you know what this is?"...she said "A Z/28"...she was probably 17...how does she know this???

I've never had a car that gets more attention, mostly positive but some negative. The negative always comes from Mustangs, Challengers, or large modified pickups who want to race. The positive outweighs the negative, and I've never stopped for gas without having to field a bunch of questions about the car. It is surprising how many people know exactly what it is, and I've gotten huge kudos from guys who owned the original Zed...

You got the finger because she knows the Z28 is far superior than her car.

You will be better off with a Z28 with air than not having one at all.

Yes, he will be giving GM money in directly. There are many ZR1s out there and yes faster, a ZL1 is also faster. Both are not faster on the test track.
