The "Red Roar" ZO6
Tigress has Claws
After owning 2 Mustang
GT’s, a Mustang Cobra and a 2004 convertible Commemorative Edition Corvette,
Wendy Simons felt the need for more speed. She realized that the only real way
to satisfy “the need” was to hitch a ride on the king of the speed hill; her search
was on for a red Z06. Wendy’s search for the ultimate modern day street machine
lasted approximately one year. A major
part of her search criteria was to find a Z with an acceptable sticker price.
Prior to the
purchase of the Z, Wendy had already chosen the name "Red Roar". She saw a red Z06 in a 2005 copy of Motor
Trend that was given that name. As luck
would have it the name was available for a specialty plate at her local California DMV. She had the plates but no car, bottom line she
had to let the plates go. A year latter
she found her dream car, a Victory red 06 ZO6, and believe it or not the vanity
name red roar was still available.
As soon as Wendy
bought car she had the windows tinted, and installed a Bassani exhaust system. The interior was redone in what else, red. No
modifications were made to the already potent power plant.
Wendy uses her Z as
a daily driver, the mild California weather enables her to enjoy her ride all year long.
Wendy has participated in numerous local
car shows. She usually tags along with her friends at "Corvette Specialty
of Corona, Ca.” they customized and maintain Wendy’s Z.
Wendy joins the
ranks of the ever growing female presence in Corvette Land. If you are
ever in Southern
and find yourself at a stop light next to a Corvette with “Red Roar” plates our
advice is do not tempt fate as this tigress will blow your doors off.
