I purchased my new 2004 Millenium Yellow Z06 8 years ago today. The car has just over 38,000 miles on it and is running stronger than ever and has never had any warranty work done or any other problems. When I drove it in to work this morning I realize that I still love driving the car just as much now as I did when I (literally) drove it off of the showroom floor 8 years ago. I still really like how the Millenium Yellow paint looks with the fixed roof coupe body style, especially with the sun on it! It is still definitely my favorite body style and my kids still love it and it gets lots of looks every time I drive it even with it being completely stock. In 8 years the car has made no trips to the dealer and the only things I've replaced were one new set of wipers, one new set of tires and the battery (after I accidentally ran it down and let it sit for two weeks like that in the winter in an unheated garage. The car doesn't get babied, the garage isn't heated, I've run it in a couple of tracks days, putting about 180 miles of track time on it during each, but the stock suspension is still nice and tight and it starts and runs like new.
