I was sitting at Lunch after Golf today and one of my Golf friends said his brother just took a picture at Indy today...he asked me what it was? Clearly it's the 2015 Z06 Convt in Blade Silver with Adrenaline Red interior. That is the second time I was in the right place at the right time when the Z06 came up. Last July I was playing Golf with another buddy of mine and he looks at his phone as he got a text from his brother in NY State. I said come on lets play...my friend is a lawyer and states that his brother is working on some engines for the new Corvette...I asked what his brother does up in NY? He said he is a tool and die maker in Tonawanda...I said text back right away and ask are the engines Supercharged and if so how many...his brother stated yes and that it's more then 2,000 engines!! That was a Sunday night July 2013! Do you think I was a bit excited?

I'm not sure what difference it makes, but I read somewhere, I think it pertained to the engine build experience how all LT4 engines built for 7-Speed manual transmission cars were going to be built at the BGAP and the automatic engines were going to be built at Tonowanda.... Therefore, those ordering their cars with the 7-Speed manual transmissions were the only ones the engine build experience was/is available to.

Tom, do you have the link or reference for that information? That is extremely interesting, and I would love to read all the details.

Like the color combo. Had a Corgi miniature Aston Martin from the old James Bond films when I was a kid in the same colors. Even had a passenger ejection seat. That would be a handy option once in a while.
