    Picking up my Corvette tomorrow!

    I was playing around with prices and ended up getting what I would consider a hell of a deal on a 2012.

    Blade Silver, black interior, 6-speed.

    Cant wait!

    I will post pics as soon as I can. My first impressions are that it is quiet, it needs something just for the sound.

    Nice! Planning some mods already I see. Looking forward to seeing the new ride... but I will miss that sleeper Z.

    congrats on the new car.......vettes are nice but I'm not a fan of how they ride. They just simply aren't built for old fat bastards.

    I will give you a full run down of this one. The 2012s have new seats with better bolsters, new door panels, new console, and a smaller steering wheel.

    Got your pic, Dan. That thing looks sweet. I expect a ride! Maybe this time you'll be the one to miss third.

    Prick woke me up at 6:47a.m. this morning to tell me he got a new ride to ride in his new ride. If you catch my drift. Prick better appologize next time I see him.




    Oh, and it is a nice car.

    It is a sweet ride... and I wasn't the arm candy in the passenger seat either. The interior is way cool on the car and I really like the button door handles that it has. Blade silver is the perfect color and the car just looks fast just sitting in the parking lot. I am eager to see it run at the track this year! How long before we put it up on the lift to start the mods?

    Thanks, I will post some up tonight. When your car is done I will trade keys with you for a short drive if you are willing.

    I am sure I will. Reverse is really close to 6th, I have to be careful when trying to back up. I think its because I am not used to it. My GTO was no where near this close together and the throw of this shifter is SUPER SHORT.

    You can drive it..........that will make up for it.

    I showed the pic to Sara and her friends and they want to do some bikini photo shots with the car. lol And I must say "I have been to the top of the mountain, and it is good. Very good."

    Like Walt said I will most likely miss a gear. Going to have to practice a bit. OIL and filter are getting changed at 1k miles too.

    When it started to get dark the thing looked amazing under the lights. Yes, I took it for a short drive in the early evening Saturday night. lol
