Re: Z8 Dave, you live in NE FLA?
I'm in Charlotte. We take the Z8 up to Blowing Rock on a regular basis. Have done Blue Ridge Pkwy too....simply beautiful. Blowing Rock is great....if you have not already, try Lake Lure / Chimney Rock area. Great driving and drop dead beautiful. EXTREMELY fun roads getting up there. Next time you're up in that area the www.lodgeonlakelure.com is awesome. And an hour west of that area is www.tailofthedragon.com. Arguably the best sports car drive in North America....318 curves on an 11 mile stretch....pure Heaven.
