Default Just traded my ZR1 for a 427 Vert

I really think I would rather have a convertible,
so I traded my worn out (550 miles) ZR1 for a
2013 Aniversary 427 vert. I guess I can live
with the 130 HP loss to be able to put the top
down. If the weather ever clears up around
here, maybe I will actually get to drive it.
I think I am going to leave this one mostly stock,
but I did smoke the brake and marker lights.
I am also going to change the exhaust with
B and B Fusion mufflers and Kooks headers.
Maybe a little carbon fiber and chrome under
the hood, and I'll be ready to cruise for the
summer

Very nice! The 427 Convertible would be my top choice for the C6 lineup.

You'll love it! They look gorgeous top up or down. Nothing better for a tree lined two lane or a drive up the coast. And with the top up on a cool evening it's cozy and quiet. I love my vert!

I'm doing the clear marker lights on mine, but I kind of like the looks of the black out markers too. Nice!
