After fishing around for a while I pulled the trigger on a 2019 Memphis Red Performance, 1,100 miles with a very nice spec.
It will be delivered next week and I will pull it in the garage, hook up the charger and wait for spring. It will be a long wait.

I now have three fun cars. 2018 Z06 Z07 loaded. A Superformance 427 SC replica Cobra top spec, 2600 pounds 560 hp.. I really don't have room for three cars I am having trouble deciding what to sell.

I can daily drive the Vett in the summer, it is a very capable machine and great fun to drive. It is very similar to the 720, more instant torque. The Cobra is a different animal. It is a 20 minute joy ride kinda car. I tend not to take it out as much so I am thinking that is the one to sell.

Keep the Vett do the majority of track days in it and one or two in the McLaren.

Hard Choice.

Sounds pretty similar to my experiences the last few years. I had a C6 Z06 that was set up for track days (Stop Tech BBK, Sparco seats, harness, Forgelines with RA-1s), a Superformance 427 with a Ford Racing 521 ci crate motor with Webers (2650 lbs, 625 hp), and finally a 570S. We sure seem to be running in nearly parallel tracks...

Keep the cobra and sell the Vette. You can daily drive the McLaren and still have the cobra to drive as contrast to the Vette or McLaren.

I think Daily driving the McLaren would no be a good idea. Send the wrong signals to me employees and customers.

Doesn't sound like you have any choice to make then. Time to list the Cobra for sale.

You actually daily drive a z06 in Detroit winter's through snow and all?

The Winter has been so mild that I took mine out today. I usually wait until April 1st. I still have my SQ5, so I won't have a problem.

Are you in Detroit? I’m from saginaw. Just got my 2020 C8 ordered and with TPW of March 5-15/2020. Will be my daily summer driver. Congrats on your 720S. We have the same color in luxury.

I think you're missing the obvious, you don't have to many cars you need a larger garage. Problem solved.
Will a parking lift fit in your garage? All low cars which helps with height.

I have a parking lift. I am blessed with a 14 foot garage ceiling. Three car garage, wifes car and crap take up the double bay. I have 4 cars, daily driver, Vett, Cobra and now 720S. I can keep a car at work in the winter which allows me to park under the lift right now. That extra car is a problem.

Then there is this for the double bay....
Double storage lift.

Invest $5k in a lift, and raise the garage doors - voila!
That way, you don't have to get rid of any of them :) View attachment 199529
what kind of lift do you have? I have found the Bendpak 9HW for SUVs. So that means I can park my escalade underneath and park the 720s or C8 above? Or it doesn’t really matter if I park the SUV above? Did you guys have this choice dilemma? Or I can just park both 720s and C8 where the lift is. I have a 4 car garage.
