I suppose the immediate most important question is "WHY"?

I always wanted a Vette since I was a kid. Got married, wife quit job, had 4 kids. No chance for a Corvette. Got my baby (the Corvette that is) when I was 45 since the kids were older. . My point is, you'll get back in the saddle again. Be brave.

Good luck with the family and business.

I thinks every one has done that, I wish I kept every Vette I owned ( 69/71LT1/70/79/88/99) in that order, I sold them for various reasons, I still have the 88/99 and don't plan on parting with them, their like money in the bank..................That is, if you don't trash them........................And leave them in a mostly stock configuration...............Just my 2

Sounds like a Country Music song. Might want to try selling your story to a recording company, make some money off it, and get that Vette back.

Good luck, and if once a Vette owner, then a Vette owner you will be again.
