Well in December, 3 days after they were officially released...my first NEW Corvette Z06 arrived at my Chevy Store. Ordered to my specs it's a 2015 Z06 with 3LZ interior (top interior choice with Nappa Leather), Stage 2 painted Carbon Fiber Aero kit, Carbon Fiber Targa top, Performance Data Recorder, and a few other goodies.

Last week I finally got the 500 break-in miles put on it and have a Halltech Carbon Fiber intake going on next week (50+ RWHP). Going to have it on the dyno at Fathouse Fabrications in Martinsville on Tuesday (3/31/15) from 2:30-4:30 for before and after comparison's if anybody wants to stop by!! Should put total horsepower around 710 at the crank with just the added intake and no tune!

We need to do a spring cruise to Brown County soon (on a Sunday!!) so I can stretch her legs. From what I've experienced so far, she's going to be a sreamer!!

The aero kit really sets the Z06 off Brian - well done!
Oh, ... and perfect name for your Corvette as I'm sure the pavement shakes like a thunder storm just came through when you drive by.
Cheers,

Thanks Greg! Once I get some headers on this thing, she will definitely increase the points on the richter scale!

Take care,

Brian

Gorgeous color scheme. That's one Corvette I won't mess with in my Mustang.

I'm down for a drive!
