Build Your Own ZO6 or ZR1 Corvette Engine!

Chevrolet has changed the rules! Order a new Corvette and now you can build your own ZO6 or ZR1 engine; at the factory. Can you imagine the attention you will get at the next club meeting or cruise when you start to talk about how you went to the Corvette engine plant and built the engine in your new ZO6! And, get this, the engine still has a 5 year 100,000 mile warranty.

Chevrolet has just introduced a new program for buyers of the 2011 ZO6 and ZR1 that allows them to go to Detroit and build the engine for their new sports car. No, you don’t get to modify it, you just work with the GM tech to help build the engine. It is a mostly hand built engine so it is a hands on job. It isn’t any assembly line, one person builds a complete engine.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
