We put a deposit on a 2022 ZO6 today. Now the wait begins, like the Shelby. Maybe longer.
Lou
Awesome! Congrats Lou! Hopefully the chip shortage thing will all be sorted out by then!

Any tips or advice?
The Old Salty Dog just over the south causeway, Chart House just before the south causeway, or The Pub Mar Vista on the north end of the island, bayside. The island is fairly self contained if you don't feel like leaving - gas, groceries, pizza...everything is pretty much there. St. Armands and Lido Beach are awesome as well...just south of the island. Don't speed on Gulf of Mexico Drive and absolutely DO NOT PASS anyone where there is a double line, the cops will nail you. There is a lot to do in Sarasota, I'm sure you'll venture there.

Thanks Anthony! My wife grew up in Daytona so I'm sure she'll want to cruise over to the Atlantic side at some point to check out her old stomping grounds while we're down there.

Since I’ve been driving the 95 while the truck is in the shop, I ran some fuel system cleaner through it and just finished changing spark plugs on it. It has 23k miles.

It was the Smarties I was referring to. There just happened to be a red wrench thingy in the box, too. :LOL:

Fired up the boat for the 1st time this year. A little starting fluid down the carb was all it needed. There was a nice sized bass swimming by the surface around the dock. I actually reached in and touched him.

My son told my wife the other day that he missed swimming.....

Yeah, it's time.

Got home from work a little while ago. About to get to work here. We’re hosting a party tomorrow for everyone going to Longboat with us in a couple of weeks. Figuring around 25. Time to get this party started! Sure it will go late into tomorrow night with a few electing to just spend the night. :giggle:

After a week and a half at the dealer and $2200 later, I got my truck back! I worked it too hard on the hills of Missouri... it has a new exhaust manifold and some new brakes.

Some day... yes! We have other financial priorities right now like college tuition and a vehicle for the wife, probably next year.
