welcome. i am also new. i find this site very educational. I also owned a 2003 Z06 untill my wife stuffed it a couple of months ago. It worked out tho, because now i bought a ferrari 355 spyder as a replacement. The Z06 is the absolute best bang for the buck. Exceptional track car i might add. I put over 10k miles on the road course alone! But it just does not do it for me like a ferrari.
