Just wanted to thank everyone for their help, a few weeks ago I posted that I was looking for my first Vette, well it wasn't long before I received posts back about a few vette's that were in my wish criteria. Thankfully a few people were kind enough to point me in the direction of Jessie the GMJunkie, I am proud to say that I am the new owner of his former Polo Green 96 coupe that he named "Thelma". Flew up to the hills of North Carolina where the GMJunkie hangs out and met Thelma, it was love at first sight, it wasn't long after the trip from the airport to his headquarters that the deal was made and she became mine. Soon after we departed the NC hills for the beaches of Palm Beach County, Florida her new home the car ran great and made the hectic trip in the rain without even breaking a sweat. The only regret I had was leaving Thelma's red twin sister "Louise" behind all by herself, that family put out some fine daughters. if anybody is looking you might want to give "Louise" a good looking.

Anyhow I am getting long winded but once again thanks everyone and have a happy holiday I know I will.

PS The GMJunkies did a great job with the car but it is only fair to tell you that he sucks when it comes to weather LoL

Congratulations on the new ride! :upthumbs

I have owned three C4s. I do have to warn you though: The windshield wipers lift off the glass above 120 mph. Don't ask me how I know! :eyerole

Thanks for the heads up, I'll keep that in mind also at what speed do they settle back down at, I would think somewhere in the area of 135?

You know its funny but they don't melt in the rain, I just came back from a spin in the drizzle :L its still in the 40's up here in Ohio.
BTW you don't need an excuse to take a drive in a Vette, just do it!!
Congrats on the new Vette, one of these days I'll make it down to the hills to Visit Jessie.:D
