If I can't find a reasonable dealer in the Bay Area, I'm going to order my ZL1 from one of the sponsor dealerships and have it shipped directly to a local dealer via courtesy delivery.

Chevrolet has a uniform destination charge, regardless of the actual final destination, therefore, the destination charge is the same whether the vehicle is shipped to Michigan or San Diego.
Thank you for reminding me of this. I keep forgetting this option. I'm kinda' torn, honestly, about this whole situation.

IF, all goes to plan, I'm kinda' looking for making this a big event, of sorts; some "pomp and circumstance", if you will. I think I'm romanticising it, maybe too much, but want to make an experience of the whole thing. I see videos of fanatics picking their cars up, and I just want to do that one time, with the car I've wanted most, in all my life. Is it worth the extra money it's going to take? I think it might be. I definately wouldn't mind a road trip across most of the country. I was kinda' thinking of making that my vacation that year (I'd probably be sacrificing a 'Fest, too :(). As much as I think I'll end up forking out, and as much as I know I'm going to need the $$$ for my plan of mods', I think you're right.

If you wouldn't mind, please share what happens when you set about getting your car. I know I'm curious, and haven't really followed another's experience regarding this process.

I'm not sure if this is classified as street racing so I think this is safe Spending $60K to get out the door's not enough! You gotta' spend another grand on new tires!!! LOL!!!
