    Finally a Corvette!

    Now I know what all you guys felt when you bought your first Corvette. Holy smoke. After 25 years of family obligations (station wagons, SUV's), and 58 years on this earth, I finally found my Corvette. I've had XKE, 240-Z, and Lotus, way back when, but this is something new and better. She's a...
