Well after much debate with the Mrs. I finally picked up my new 2007 Victory Red Z06 with 5 miles on the ODO.

As this is my 5th Corvette (two coupes and 2 verts), the Mrs. said I could get a new one, but NO Z06! She said "you can get an auto vert", but NO Z06! :whip:

After a couple of weeks of "conversations" she came with me on Saturday to look at verts and guess what was on the dealers lot... A couple of verts along with a Silver Z06! (I was actually kinda sad :( because the Victory Red one I saw a couple of weeks ago was gone).

Dealer comes out and brings the keys for the vert and the Z06 and says which one you want to drive? :lookinup: I told the Mrs. "lets just drive the Z06 so you can at least see what it's like and then we'll look at the verts."

Took a quick ride up the street and back and I asked her "so what ya think"? She said "I do like it but my knuckles are still white" ;)

After she saw the smile on my face she was like ok, if this is what you really want. (insert me picking myself up off the parking lot) :thud:

So we walk inside to start the "negotiations" and guess what's sitting on the showroom floor.

THE VICTORY RED Z06 :surprised :partyon:

So after some of the usual haggleing, I ended up getting it for 2K under MSRP (sticker was 30K OVER MSRP :WTF at $107,230.00 :crazy: )

Also, just wanted to say thanks to everyone here. I've been looking and reading for some time now, and through all the great discussions etc... It really helped. I look forward to talking with everyone and contributing where I can. As with many here, owning a Z06 has been a long time dream of mine.

So if your wife came back white knuckled, I guess you were really beating on the one they let you test drive? Anyway, nice negotiations and nice car

Actually, No.

Having had Vette's in the past, I knew they had a good kick to them. The car we test drove had 59 miles on it when we took it out. I was actually driving quite responsibly and was in 3rd gear at about 45 MPH going down a nice open back road and decided to drop it into 2nd and get on it a little to see what it had. Well, that turned into all kinds of wheelspin at a rolling 45MPH! After that I was sold.
