Default I am a ZR1 magnet.

Within the past month I have encountered 2 ZR1 Vettes which I would say is pretty rare. The first Vette was a Crystal Red ZR1 while I was on Rt. 20 coming home from Mook's place. It was late and pretty dark, so I had a hard time getting a good look at the car, but looked sweet from what I could see. Rt. 20 does not have the best lighting and I did not mess with the guy at all.

The second Vette was a Jetstream Blue ZR1 that I ran into last night. I was heading home from my Mom's place East on Higgins. I usually hang a right onto Rt. 25, but saw something with crazy bodylines in my rearview so I continued straight. About 1/2 mile past Rt. 25 I realized it was a ZR1 and I must say the car looks sexy! We were cruising next to each other for about a mile and I look over a few times and see there is an older guy with his wife. I look over again and I see he and his wife smiling at me, so I throw them a thumbs up. Apparently they thought I wanted to give it a run. Next thing I know the guy downshifts and just hammers the throttle. The car just blows the tires off at 60 mph and takes off like a rocket ship. I basically creamed my pants because the exhaust note sounded so SEXY!!! I was kicking myself because I did not give the ZR1 the good old college try, but I know the outcome would have been me getting annihilated. I get back next to the ZR1 a little bit before Rt. 59 and gave them the thumbs ups again, they waved and took off.

I must say I really want a ZR1 now

I can't hardly pay to get next to anything on the streets anymore simply by chance.

Although today I did merger onto 90 from Randall following a Z06 (in the 5.0 I might add) and I actually stayed on his bumper pretty well... until we got into traffic and had to slow to match the speed of traffic @ 80mph I got next to him, he looked over with his coffee in hand, gave him the thumbs up and continued on by.

So far I think I've seem 3 on the road. I say a jet stream blue on 90, there is a cyber gray that runs around in Lombard/Downers and last month I saw a torch red one in Northbrook.

I agree, I rarely get next to anybody these days. The cars that I do, are usually riced-out Civics or some other econo-box with Folger's exhaust.

He better hope it's from a dig to have any chance, a ZR1 with any kind of half-decent driver is gonna walk him from a roll.

I have a friend back in NJ that has a new ZR1 (the first model year with the traction control). Can't wait until the next trip home so I can take it for a spin.
