Default Pick Up My Brand New C6 Today!!!!! Pic Inside!!

Just got home with my brand new 2012 C6! I bought it at Coughlin Chevrolet! Rick Conti was an absolute professional to deal with. It was a very easy and straight forward deal! I could not have had a better buying experience! They have over a hundred new corvettes on their lot, and there is NO dealerships with better deals right now!! Trust me I looked everywhere!

Here is the picture that he took of my fiancee and I when we took delivery!

Nice. White is my second favorite color. Looks like its lowered a little already. I slammed mine. Is it a 6 speed manual?

Thanks guys! Yep 6spd 1lt car. I do plan on lowering it and adding headers, npp, painting the calipers, and painting the top and halo black.

All in due time though... I'm going to enjoy it as it sits for a while!

Very Nice! Oh, and your new Corvette looks good too!

No seriously, if my other toy car ('06 MC LZ9) weren't Arctic white I would purchase a white Corvette as well. Per one of the other responses, has the car been lowered or are you and your fiance both tall? Or is it kind of an optical effect caused by the black rims?

Anyway. Congratulations!

They're on the sidewalk. The car's on the pavement next to the curb a few inches lower.

Manual? The 3:42 gearing in the manual makes the car much quicker. I just picked up a low mile 06 6 speed mAnul, with mods. But after driving the a6 cars, the stick is so much quiker

Congratulations on your new Vette. I think Artic White is a great color on Vettes. I have owned two Artic White Vettes.

Enjoy your new ride.

Congratulations on a great choice. It will really look killer once you do the top and halo in black.
