Hi all - I just want to share my excitement.

I ordered a 1LZ LMB Z with red inserts from Boardwalk Chevy. Carl Jackson called me Friday and said he was able to secure an allocation. He didn't have one but went the extra mile and found one for me:thumbsup: So in 6 weeks I should be cruising down California 1 breaking in my new Z. It'll be an approximately 500 mile drive from Boardwalk to my home in So Cal so the Z should be broken in on arrival.

Carl has been extremely helpful and I highly recommend him.

Now it looks like a childhood dream of owning a 427 Vette will come true:thumbsup:

No doubt! That's why I'm doing PCH all the way from San Fran to LA - a lot of variable speeds/gears and being stuck behind RVs:thud: But it should make for great pics!

Highway 1

gagunga,

I did the same thing when I bought my 06 C6 in San Jose and drove it home to Huntington Beach. It's a great road for breaking in a new car. Can there be anything better than driving the world's finest sports car on one of the worlds greatest roads?:thumbsup:

Be cautious though, lots of springs in the mountain section which seep water across the road in the most surprising places. You can also expect some minor rock slides in that section of the trip. (I did it in January, so summer may be better.)

A little slippin n slidin and dodging, but still the greatest drive I've taken in the C6.

Don't forget to wave:buhbye:

Great on your new Z. You will have a blast.
Had mine a year now and it's still a hoot!
