Default My time as a non-Z06 owner may be short lived....

Heading down to South Carolina this evening to check out a '01 Z06 to build into a NASA TTA/PTA race car. I had it checked out by a local Corvette racer a couple of days ago and closed the deal. If the car is what it's supposed to be it'll be coming home with me.

The car will be getting gutted and setup for timetrials in the TTA class, then caged this winter during the off-season. This way I can run PTA (wheel to wheel) or I can step up and run ST2 if I'd like to.

Some pictures of the car... it's a 2001 with 118,xxx miles and it's stock.

Looks nice from the pics, I hope it works out and is what you wanted and as advertised.



Let us know when you start gutting it and anything you want to part with, some of us scavengers may take stuff off your hands.

Got her back to my parents house in Greensboro for the evening... going to head back to va beach tomorrow... the car is in amazing condition for a 119k car... it's almost too pretty to make a track whore... got the car for $14.5k and the only things wrong with it are as follows:

1. EBCM has failed and climate control display is very very dim, they will both go to ABSFixer for some fixin'

2. Passenger side door control module doesn't seem to work and the power window is stuck up.

3. The hazard switch is going bad and causes the blinkers to not work sometimes.

4. Someone ganked the red FRCs and replaced w/ standard black ones.

But other than that the car is great.... has brand brand new Firestone Wide Ovals, no leaks that I can find, no evidence of any paint work or crash damage and that's with my uber-pickey insurance adjuster review.

The clutch feels really good.... can't tell it has 119k on it, trans shifts like new and everything else works.... car pulls nice and hard and makes 25 psi at hot hot idle (rand her rard and got it to 230+) oil pressure. The car was driven i.e. miles, but looks to have lived in a garage and been taken care of. No mods at all, no evidence of racing or hard use. The interior is in near perfect shape and only the driver's seat cover has heavy creasing.

The car will be getting fully gutted and all the interior will be for sale, AC will go, full stereo will go etc. etc. I'll make a for sale thread when the time comes. Tires will get sold too.

Some pics... got her from Buck's Wheels and Deals in North Augusta, SC!!!

Eventually ill run into some stock ones and scoop them up just to have a set. goodluck on the new toy and when ya start gutting it out i might be intrested in the red interior.

All those problems sound very very familiar with another 01


Although I still think my EBCM went on strike the day Lee and his buddy with the Ferrari took me up to FoW and took me through some hilly twisties.

LMK.... I'm getting quite a bit of interest on the seats... I was going to clean them and take some better pics once I get a chance to step back and organize the for sale thread.... first priority is getting the car ready for the track in 3.5 more weeks.
