I've had my Z for a little over six months. I have 11,654 miles, I started with
2. It is my daily driver rain or shine. I know there's are a lot of people who drive their's as much as I do. Who is rocking the most miles. We all can find the garage queens. The big question is who has 30 or 40 thousand miles on their Z. Just a quick question.


One more thing, I took a trip from Seattle to Olympia. It's a 72 mile trip one way. In 6 th gear at 71 miles an hour, I got 28.6 miles to the gallon. That's really good!!!

Another NW C6Z ...

Hey C6-R JR ... My brother's LMB Z06 just turned 10,000 this past week. BTW, he's a neighbor of yours (maybe you've met already?), as he lives in Renton. Drop me a PM if you want his contact info.

What it was meant for ... !

I have around 2,300 km on my 07 Z06, it saw its first track day with approximately 1,800 km.

The next week-end ... I let my oldest son (19 yrs - drives a 97 Accura) drive it ... even with a couple of practice sessions with me in the passenger seat ... he put it in the weeds ... the car was not damaged ... took me 2 hours to talk the kid back into the car, and back out onto the track ... he went back out ... twice ... the first time, a little gun shy, but the next time, ... well you, can tell the difference between a 5,500 rpm shift and a 6,500 rpm shift ...

Kid still likes Honda S2000's ... don't know where I went wrong ...

If you have one of these cars and do not use it on the track ... then I would humbly suggest that you go to the track and make the world a safer place. :)

LWM :cheers:
