My new baby...

Just picked up this Godsend to American Muscle...


I've always wanted a vette but never was able to quite pull it off...now I'm golden.

Thing is a beast...gonna take some time to get used to it, but holy ...thing pulls like a ...

Originally I wanted an A8, but I found a good deal on the M7 so I jumped on it. Sure the A8 is "faster" but for what I'm doing I'd rather be more involved in the driving with the manual.

It's actually pretty nice to drive. Throttle is forgiving unless you give it a mash..then hold on cuz it's a rocket. Nice ride, not to firm. You have all kinds of settings and buttons and . Display reminds me of a video game...has so much info I don't even know what to do with it until I'm at the track.

Just wanted to share..

Gorgeous car. Congrats. Love the C7s in black... But I'm always trying to keep my small black car clean.

Been looking for awhile and was about to order a 16', but ran across this that came in earlier this week. Old guy with some issues traded it in...think the power was a bit much...

Anyways, picked it up on the cheap considering it has 2k miles.

Nice, we sold one just like it tonight. Good choice bro, I drove ours and was pleasantly surprised at how much more power it has compared to the C6. Careful when you turn the tc off lol, those tires are 'spensive.

That looks like a Stage 2 Aero C7 Z06. Very nice!

I had one on order for almost a year. Mine was AW convertible, A8 with Stage 3 Aero. It finally came up for 3000 order status in late March, and I decided that I would put the $110K to better use. I need to finish paying out the ex (soon...) and then I will have a much better view of what my financial future looks like.

Congrats on the beautiful C7Z!

I was looking at a 16' to order, but then I came across this deal....also was looking at the Z07 but the carbon brakes weren't that important, and those cup tires would have been another $2k in a few months.

Lovin this thing every day I drive it...
