Beautiful car. I test drove several and came close to buying but in the end thought the interior trim was cheap looking for the money. I do like your color choice.

You were lucky. I have had four as well, two new '78's, a used '79, and a new '84.

Both '78's I had to have repainted because of all the scratches including one I picked up at a dealer across the street from the factory. Great quality control and great workmanship by UAW members. With the '84, both power windows, digital display and a/c went out within the first 2000 miles. Last American car I ever owned.

While I am more a fan of naturally aspirated cars, these are some impressive engine performance curves for your Z06:

The 2015 Corvette Z06 Will Have A Supercar-Shaming 650hp And 650lb ft Of Torque

The new z06 looks to make as much of a splash in the sports car world as its predecessor, it will be a beast of a car!
