We've decided that we can't pass up on this kind of savings, so we went to the bank yesterday to get our ducks in a row, talked to our rep about a 2008 instead of a 2009, seeing as the incentive only applies to 2008 model year cars. We are going to make an offer today on a 2LZ Blue Jetstream Z06 for $80,000 out the door! This is roughly $69,000.00 before tax, license etc...
    They have this car on their dealership floor, so we might actually take delivery of this car TODAY!
    Do you think I'm a little nervous?

    I guess I should have read your last post before I wrote mine!!! That is unless, you didn't go this way.

    I can't blame you if you did, but I sort of hope you didn't.

    Final negotiated price: $75,397.07 OTD. Bank dropped the ball today, funding available tomorrow morning (promised to me) so I I took it around the block a few times for fun. I won't sleep tonight. The car is most beautiful in the daylight, first time I've seen it outdoors.

    Brought the car last night. Will post pics soon. More fun than should be allowed in a car. Taking it easy on her until she's broken in. Can't put the Mr. Hyde plate on until the DOL (department of licensing) assigns it to the new car. There's a lot to learn about this new car. Thank you to everyone who has read and responded to this thread from way back when I started it. I was back and forth there for a while, but you guys supported me through this whole thing. You guys are like my online brothers!

    Thank you Sir. It's a stunning color in the daylight. This car has blown me away in just the 300 miles since I got it. WAY past all expectations, this car is like nothing I've ever owned /or driven. One of the neatest features on the car is the fact that you just walk up to the locked car, and it automatically unlocks for you, you sit down and push the start button. No fumbling for your keys, or pushing this or that button on the fob, just walk up, get in, push the start button, and this car sounds so badass when she fires, and just slip it into 1st gear and go.
    Then when you park it, you just get out and close the door, no locking it, or setting the alarm, it's all automatic. I love this car!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I still have not put my foot in it, but the thing has so much TORQUE!

    Im glad youre happy brother. You deserve it. Just remember, if you ever get to missing Mr. Hyde..... I have its twin and I'll trade you a ride around the block in it for one in the Z

    P.S. - I was Az a few weeks ago and went to a dealer for some service and snapped a couple pics of a Silver Z06 outside, and the Blue like yours on the showroom floor.

    BE CAREFUL my brother! Remember that's how it all started for me. I was simply buying my wife a new Silverado when they had a [later turned out to be mine] Z06 on the showroom. I started thinking about it...and you guys all know the rest of the story. I wish I could give each of you guys a turn taking her around the block, I really do the car is really beyond words. It's better than I thought it would be. I can't believe I have the priviledge of owning this car. When I walked out of the Grocery store today and there she was parked there, and I'm thinking, I can't believe I get to actually walk up and get in THAT car! I know I'm being like a kid, but this is really a trip for me.
    Kids run up and ask.."How fast does your car go mister?" People actually speed up on the freeway just to look at the car. Guys, I don't need to tell you about the looks from the women.......

    Thank you, I have it home, but it's been rainin' cats and dogs the last couple of days. I plan on taking a few shots of the Camaro and Corvette together before Mr. Hyde is gone, I have a buyer that's just waiting for his loan to be approved. In retrospect, I think I'm going to let the personal plate go with the Camaro, it just suits it so well.

    I guess it's time to change my Stats on the car isn't it?

    As of now I feel like a mini Jay Leno with 4 cars for just my wife and myself lol. It's just not feasible to keep so many cars, and the new Vette satisfies the Need for Speed, so Mr. Hyde must go to a good home. We will be listing the Mazda soon too, but if we don't get our asking price, I can easily see us keeping that car as I am not even fond of the idea of driving the Z06 in the ice or snow.

    At first I couldn't remember what the heck you were talkin' about...then it hit me! That's right!!!!! Where are those pics!!! I bet those rims look sweet on your car! I laughed to myself when it hit me.
    *Note to all* This young man bought the factory chrome rims and tires from me quite sometime ago when I bought the 20's and decided to sell the original ones. He was to take some pics of his car and post them for us all to see when he got the chance.
    Foot tapping......well....where are those pics? lol

    A black on black C6 Z06 is my dream car. But when it comes down to the car you love, and the car you want, i see no shame in sticking with what you love.
    I just got chills twice, no homo. First because of the story, but then the comment was straight out of my heart
