    Hello Again!

    Hi All! It's good to be back in the family! I bought my beautiful 1998 LS1 Z28 back in 2000 with only around 19k miles on her. She was the love of my life and was pampered and only driven on sunny days for 8 years when I ended up having to sell her due to a divorce Losing her was one of my worst days ever. When I sold her she only had 46k miles on her. Luckily I took my time and found the most perfect buyer for her. The new owner and I stayed in touch and just last month she offered me the chance to buy my Z back. So I flew 1,100 miles to get her and drive her back home. She's still the most amazing car ever, even with 146k miles on her!!

    But she does need some love so I'm hoping you all can point me in the right direction. 1st major problem is she has a modified exhaust that won't pass emissions in VA. They completely took out the catalytic converters and removed the oxygen sensors. Also her tail pipes are no longer rectangular. I'd like to get her back to the way she used to look and sound without spending a fortune. Anyone have any suggestions for after market parts, including the rectangular tips?

    Thank you in advance!!

    Check our sponsors on the right of the screen, our For Sale section, and ebay. Check out a site called Cleveland Pick-a-Part, LKQOnline and F-Parts. Check your local junkyards as well. Give a holler if you need anything else.

    Congrats!!

    That new owner must have liked driving it putting 100,000 miles on it in 6-7 years lol. Where was the car at?
    It's on jackstands.

    She did love this car! We were both in tears as she signed it back over to me. It was down in Baton Rouge
