Ok, to follow what might be a developing trend here, I'll jump in with a Nevada C7 owners sub thread. We are a very strong car enthusiast state, for example, our Las Vegas Cars and Coffee meets every Saturday and typically has anywhere from 250 to 450 cars show up representing all makes and ages. We have several active Corvette Clubs. I will (hopefully) shortly be picking up RedHot, my C7 from the Museum and driving it back to Vegas.

Who else in Nevada has one on order?:cool:

Looking forward to seeing it vegasbar10der! While for no apparent reason we don't have sign ups here, we do have a number show up each Saturday at Cars and Coffee. :cool:

My gf recently put in an order for a 2015 Stingray, Z51/3LT. Are C7 owners still meeting up at cars and coffee in Vegas? We might like to stop by and check your cars out if you're still meeting up there. She currently owns a C6.

I'm in Pahrump. I have attended Las Vegas cars and coffee in my 2000 torch red C-5 and my 2014 Shelby GT 500. Just brought my new 3 LT, Z51 torch red Stingray home from Findlay Chevy Friday Jan 2. I'm having a new 6 car garage built and the drive way is a mess so I'll attend in a couple weeks. Would any one be interested in cruising over to Death Valley for lunch after C&C?

It is a possibility but quite the haul after C&C for those of us who don't live in Pahrump :D Let's keep in touch when you plan on coming in the next time.:cool:

JSvette,

Hello. I was in Vegas and Pahrump for the Ron Fellow driving school in November and took the drive from Vegas to Death Valley and back to Pahrump and was impressed with the lonely highways having never been past Vegas before. Do you guys have a Vette club? Also, I watched Top Gear when they did a story on the loneliest highway in America, I think it was Highway 50. I was thinking about coming to Hot August nights in Reno and would like to meet other Vette owners. I have a 14 Z51 Torch Red/Kalahari and would enjoy some fast scenic drives. Any help would be appreciated. I will return the favor if any readers would like to drive our high winding mountain passes.

Thanks,

Bill

I'll add my name to the bunch.

Looking at picking up a Laguna Blue 2LT Z51 the first week of July. If I'm unlucky I'm waiting on a 2016 model. But either way you'll see me out at C&C with the little one

Yay! I was able to bring up a dead thread and not feel like an ass for doing so lmao

Bill, sorry for the much delayed response. Somehow I missed your post. There are some great drives around Reno but I will defer to some of our members who live closer to Reno than I do to make suggestions. It has been several years since I drove up there from Vegas. We have at least 3 Corvette clubs here in Vegas, and a lot of members show up the first Saturday of the month at Cars and Coffee Las Vegas (which meets every Saturday- see my posts re Corvettes at it elsewhere). The run out to Death Valley using Old Spanish Trial up through the twisties of the mountains is a great drive here that you might have done when you went out to Death Valley. :cool:

Welcome to the Nevada thread Tyler! Best of luck on getting your LB Z51- are you doing that locally or through one of our forum dealers?

I'm hoping to get it from Kerbeck as long as they have it when I have the ability to purchase it next week.

I pick up a slightly used 2015 z51 3LT on 30 July in Cali. Will drive it home to Sumerlin on the 30th. I look forward to C&C on the weekends. I have been out of the country for a few years. How's the drive from LA to Vegas? Any new delays? Is 15 still the best route?

Welcome back sf15! Congrats on your Z51. Yes 15 is basically the only way back and by doing it on that Thursday you should not have any real issues. Traffic on Fridays has the influx of 'Californians' coming to Vegas and that can add considerable time. Keep in mind that there are typically lots of police on that route right up to the CA/NV boarder. Also a lot of police on 215 when you head up to Summerlin. Look forward to seeing you at C&C. Here are some shots from Vegas C&C- it is still going very strong, for example http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/around-garage/10750-las-vegas-cars-coffee-4-april-2015-a.html#post141957 and Post #37 http://www.stingrayforums.com/forum/around-garage/5534-offical-car-s-coffee-thread.html. :cool:
