I may have to sell my Z.

I've been noticing a very troubling and perhaps dangerous condition when driving my Z.

At stop signs and stoplights - when I start to move forward, the rear tires start spinning and making a lot of noise. And - even worse, I leave everyone behind me (how rude).

I'm afraid it may be time to trade in the Z for something much safer. Like a C6 Corvette. I've heard that they're very safe leaving stop lights.

I'm sorry, but I just can't take all this tire smoke anymore.

In love? In love? What's that you say? In LOVE?

Oh, my friend, this relationship goes much, much deeper than love.

I wash her every so gently.

I give her only the best (93 octane).

Her every need is taken care of - only fresh air in her tires - only mild detergent - always use the clutch - fluids checked daily - parked carefully - I stay armed in case of a possible car-jack (I got your hollow points, right here) - I wax her very carefully -

Love you say? Ha. You have no idea. :irock:

Let's go on 3. :shiftdrive:

Serious? You want serious? You CAN'T HANDLE SERIOUS, DAVE. :rolf2:

You think I'm kidding?

Do you wax your rims? I do.

Do you wipe down your dash every day? I do.

Do you hit your feet together before bringing them in the car? I do.

Do you bump draft expensive Beemers to keep the bugs off your bumper? I do.

Yes - I'm very serious.

PS - (true story)

I had to appeal to the University Parking Commission. They wanted me to put a parking decal ON MY REAR WINDOW. Can you imagine?? Outcome: I made them an offer they couldn't refuse. :shiftdrive:

Your kidding! I'm sure he had the Z in mind when he wrote those lyrics. Cool!

Okay - one more:

when you pass by a plate glass window, do you look over and see how the Z looks? I do.

Okay, okay, one more: do you "talk" to your Z? I mean like when you're entering an off ramp, do you say something to the effect of: "Let's go baby, let's hang out the tail!" I do.

Okay, just one more: When you wash your Z (and don't tell me you have it washed...puh-leeze), do you feel a sort of sensuous bonding with her? I do. :irock:

My wifey just doesn't understand.

Let's rock. :shiftdrive:

you guys have problems. you gotta get out with HUMANS more. ;) haha!
Zdays? Buuhaaaa! Who wants to ride with me? :rolf2:

Wifey will be shopping for pottery (very small pottery, but pottery, nonetheless).

I'm looking for a brave-hearted soul who want to hear the Toyo's squeal with delight! Let's drift the Tail! :shiftdrive:

Requisite: any passenger in my ride needs to wear Depends. :lmfao:

Dave - I'm like a little kid about this! I've watched videos on the twistie ride. Man. The first year I taught, I was a little south of Asheville. The roads there are amazing. Of course, at the time, I had a F-150... Now, I'm out here near the coast and have The Z. Needless to say, I can't wait for May. My gears will be in then, and my heel and toe protocol will be polished. I'm going to try and mount a camera on the strut behind the front seats to capture me sliding off and down a mountain! The first round's on me. :shiftdrive:

:cheers: Sounds like a good plan, except for sliding off the mountain. We don't want to see that. :nono: Who else is going to help me empty my cooler full of fun drinks?

No more sliding off the mountain, I saw that last time @ Zdayz.

Drive hard during the day and drink beer @ night. That's Zdayz!

I have good news and bad news. The good news is that my wife is pregnant!

The bad news is that the due date will be sometime in May. :helpsmilie:
