Default Looks like UK in August

Looks like I'll be headed to the UK for 2-3 years starting in August. I've been talking to the UK guys on the UK Corvette Club Website and they are helping me understand what all I'd have to do to get the ZR-1 over there and legal. Looks like Euorpean light kit is all the mods I'd have to do since it still has cats.

I'd be about 10 miles south of the Range Rover plant, 5 miles north of the Austin Martin plant, the Range Rover test course, and the largest Car Museum in the UK. I'd also be about 30 miles from Silverstone where they run the British Grand Prix.

Worse places for a motor head to live

Wow that's nuts/awesome! At least you can take the ZR1 with you. Looks like we'll have to do a cruise or two before you go. Are you going to Vettes at the Track next weekend?

Warm beer is good!!! I spent 2 years in Scotland but never saw a single Corvette. I'll put my money on Tony coming back without the '91 ZR-1 and finding himself in a C7 ZR/Z06 or C7 Z something or other....
