OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: From a Miata to a ‘Vette
This week’s Corvette of the Week comes from “FinalJenemba” whose story has made me appreciate the Corvette even more, which is huge for me because I thought I already had my foot planted pretty firmly on the Corvette appreciation throttle.
I thought watching those Corvettes fall into that sinkhole at the museum was tough to swallow, but this one beats that by a long shot — namely because this one is a man-made disaster as opposed to a natural catastrophe like the sinkhole.
Earlier this month, “akn224’s” pre-teen dream became a reality when he purchased his first Corvette: a 2004 C5 with only 29,000 miles … not even broken in, if you ask me.
“SavageLand”, the owner of this Corvette of the Week, knows how to photograph automobiles. The guy has shot documentaries, and he has also photographed for RM Auctions.
Yes, it’s painted a very attractive, or magnetic, shade of red, but with those Z06 wheels and 15% window tint, the whole package comes together in such a way that allows this fiberglass-bodied car to take on ferromagnetic properties.
