I purchased my new corvette end of October 2001, It has been 30 years since I sold my 67 427 coupe. This is the 4th corvette I owned, and I must say what a car! It is everything I thought it would be and more. It is in the garage for the winter, and I know spring will be here in approx. 4 months after all whats 4 months when I waited 30 years!.
