Default Z06 Vette

I got the chance to have a Z06 vette with manual trans for the week. Fun as Hell to drive, but totally sucked in this weather! Could only give half throttle, more than that it would break loose and spin.
plus being a company car, the rear tires are bald!
I have to take it back today

Ok, let me rephrase. What kind of company hands out a Z06 to the employees to joy ride in?

I love that car! Do you think they would care if we did a vin swap and you brought them back my C5 convertible? I can deal with the hard top and bald tires, and I'll look past the fact that it has been driven in the winter in MI and beat on. Pm me for bribe details.

You were not the first to ask about doing that

I let as many family and friends drive it as possible. Not everyone gets a chance to drive a $70,000 car. Including me.
