#1967 (non-res) arrived Thursday, installed yesterday.

Unfortunately, since I live in the Salt Belt and don't have a 4 post lift, the removal of the stock system took me way longer than I had...

I just started a new job right outside Mechanicsburg, and there are 2 Z's I now see every day in the parking lot - a black 370, and a silver 350. Anyone on here?

I think most new people to the forum just lurk and read old threads for info so they don't get scolded for not using search... at least that's what I do.

But anyways, saw two other Z's on my way...

I'm interested. There were a couple of us who met up in the fall and did a cruise. It's possible you could drum up some more attendees if something is posted in the regional forums too.
