    Right after you park that sweet black beauty in yours! I love that total blacked out look you've done. I did the same thing with my SS Camaro, but somehow it just didn't look as good!

    As I mentioned, I bought BOTH of GM's own Corvette car covers, the one that touches the paint has a very soft felt like material. Then the outer one is that fabric that we're all familiar with that repels water and stuff, did a great job against bird crap at work once.
    The covers fit very tightly, the inner one is as tight as my wife's cocktail dress, showing off all those curves, okay am I referring to the Vette, or my wife? Anyway....
    The second one fits vey well too, withstanding 40MPH winds already without so much as peeling up a little on her ass.
    However, be preparred to part with a good amount of the green stuff. I talked the parts dept. guy DOWN to a little less than $700.00 for the both of them. I later checked online and found them for about the same price, but I wanted her covered that night, and there they were, and there I was and...

    Buy the car, just get the covers and sleep better knowing you've lessened the chances of someone breaking into her too.

    Actually, we've been very fortunate around here as of late.
    My wife tells that about 7 years ago they had quite a few car jackings [we've only been married 3 years]

    I believe there are some suspension tweaks that are different in the '06 vs '08. I think GM adjusted the rear shocks to make the newer (maybe in '07) Z06 a little less eager to swing its tail.

    You are correct! Now I do remember the Magazines writing about that. They were complaining that the ass end was too loose weren't they? Good call!

    Thats good that nobody messes with your car. Ive read alot on corvetteforum.com about the guys getting their cars keyed and all kinda stuff.

    Just got my issue of Car and Driver today in the mail. Big test of all 3 Corvettes!
    Base model [Z51] vs. Z06 vs. ZR1....
    They test them on the track, road manners, I don't want to spoil it here for everyone so I'll post the loser, because there was only one loser, and two winners in the next post down. Don't read it if you don't want to know the answer!
