Black Widow

My Story starts in 1994. I lived in Middlesboro Ky.
One day, as I drove around town, I spied this 79 L82 Vette for sale. All Black. It turned out to be my first venture into the Vette world. I owned that Vette for 2 yrs then traded it for a 4Runner
That was one of the stupidest moves of my life.
Fast forward to 2005.
I've now been on the hunt for a Vette for 8yrs. Longing filled my heart and I could no longer stand waiting to be back in my Dream Car.
I get home one morning from working nights in April of 2005 and hit Autotrader. I could not believe my eyes when I came acrossed this 04 Z06 with only 892 miles on it. I grabbed the Wife and headed out the door. I get to the dealer lot and start woking out a deal to trade in my 03 Cobra. With the deal sealed I drive off one happy Camper
The rest, as you all know, has been well documented here on DC.
The Black Widow is not only a Blast to Drive for me, But a God send of enjoyment as I Mod the hell out of it.
You all know the saying "Drive it Like It owes you Money"
Well, I do. And this one owes me a shitload

Sweet Pat! The lambos are a nice touch. I didn't know you were going that way. But they look great with that blacker than night tint. Love the complete package.

Thanks to you, Patrick, Sheriff, and others I get to post mine up later. Keep the mods coming, dude.

That black bitch (said lovingly of course ) is one of the finest example of what a Z06 is and can be. He "blips" the throttle and all 500+ horses growls out the back, and if you are in front, you hear a surreal blower whine than puts goose bumps on your skin.

Outstanding car bro!

Long live the black widow!

All Righty Then

Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something, and ask yourself two questions:

1. Have you felt and known joy in your life
2. Have you given joy to someone else ....

Tell everyone about your car!
