He crashed hard and slept the entire way home from the dealership. Was a bit apprehensive about our test ride in the bed of the truck. He has some attachment issues being left all alone, so maybe that’s why.

Smoke is getting worse here.

Named her Zoey. Have yet to take her actual offroading yet; picture is just after a flat dirt/gravel road to a local hiking trail.

18 mpg on the 250-ish mile Interstate drive home from the dealership was better than I would have guessed. I think I could easily get 20+ if I drove under 70 mph.

Got a HUGE thumbs up yesterday from a passing ZR2 owner; good moments.

The white color looks way better in person than I thought it would just looking at online pictures. I would still have chosen blue if it were available, but I’m not disappointed.

Didn’t notice this until I got home from the dealership. Not a big deal, but makes me worried about other lurking GM quality issues.

First upgrade needs to be LED bulb replacements. Maybe I can fix the reflector myself when I’m in then? Otherwise it should be a warranty fix.

Also, I was going to buy it from one dealership, but they told me couple days before that another buyer was about to put down a deposit and they said the same thing on Saturday (calling into question the validity of that statement). I thought to myself that I don’t want to get into a bidding war or something stupid, so I bought from another dealership; is this a new tactic (lie) ? If so, it certainly backfired on them.
