Default Time to bid Farewell

Well, after 55k well enjoyed miles on my 07 coupe I sold it to a nice home here in the Tampa area. I have met & talked to a great number of Vette owners & enjoyed numerous Vette shows. But, it was time for a change. Did not like the early renderings of the C 7 & once I saw it, well I made the move. Picked up a 2009 Porsche 911 S Cab. Had a unbelievable 2400 miles on the clock. Got it for a fair price, and am WELL pleased with a " used Porsche ". AWESOME MOTOR CAR!!! It was a deal I could not pass up. We all must move on at one point in our lives. It was great owning a Vette and being a part of a SUPER forum.......KEEP THE WAVE ALIVE.

Lots of folks jumping over to Porsches lately. Never understood the need to announce leaving the forum, but oh well.

I just posted a similar thread. I sold my 2009 and just ordered a 2013 Porsche Boxster S. I also had a somewhat reserved reaction to the C7 renderings and prototypes although, in time, it will probably grow on me.

I hope the C7 is a huge success for GM, and I'm fairly confident it will be. It's just not for all of us.

Congratulations on your 911 S ... a truly classic roadster.

Hope you enjoy your new ride.



I will never understand why some people have to put down another person's car, whether it is a Vette or another make.

Because this is a corvette forum not a car forum and the same reason why jets fans should not tell us how they were once a patriot fan but now will be a jet fan. Good luck with the new ride but I never wave to a porsche and thats just the way it is . Not putting down anyones car but if you are switching teams we dont need to know. JMHO!
