2SS or ZL1

Hey all,
As I have finally returned to the states after a 3 year tour in Korea serving in the United States Army, I am trying to decided what to do with my 2SS. It is a May 2009 production SIM 2SS/RS with only 21,000 miles. Today, 4 days after returning to the states, I got over to a dealership and touched a ZL1. I have researched and looked at pictures while overseas, and now I want to get one, period. My biggest issue is what is available, aka color, in south eastern Florida. I want another SIM car, but there are none available.
I would like everyone to weigh in and tell me their thoughts of buying an Inferno Orange ZL1 coupe versus keeping my early production SIM 2SS/RS. Thanks.

I have both. My 2SS/RS is a June 2009 production model and my ZL1 is a 2012 limited edition. I love both cars, but if I had to choose one the ZL1 is the correct way to go (IMO). The difference in power is just scaryand the handling is so much better than the 2010 models. The technology in the ZL1 is nothing short of amazing. I recieved my Z in June of last year and now have 6K on her and can't wait for the weather to turn warmer to drive it again. Good luck in which ever direction you go, but either way your driving one of the best products on the street these days.

Thanks guys. The second question deals with color. Should I holdout for the color I want (SIM) or go with what's available, inferno orange......... It's a tough choice.

Thanks for your 2 cents. After a 3 year gap of missing my car, I'm ready to play with the big dogs.
