2002 Corvette Z06: Bottom of the Barrel?

When you're returning home from a press trip and your flight doesn't get in until 7:34 (PM) you're pretty much assured of being the last man out of the parking structure. You're also likely to be last on the priority list, meaning you get whatever car is left after everyone else raids the test fleet keyring.

What that meant for me a couple nights ago was walking out to our parking area and seeing a lonely Corvette Z06 waiting for someone to show it some love. I'm not sure if this is a reflection of the Z06 being undesirable or our other test cars being very desirable, but after using the car to drive home (and work the kinks out of four flights in the previous 36 hours) I have to believe the latter.

For future reference, any time the rest of you guys want to leave the Z06 for late-nighters like me, that's just fine.
