Greetings, I am new to the forum.

I am a long time Corvette fanatic and finally pulled the trigger on Jan 2!

Bought this beauty used at Carmax of all places! 2013 GS, 6 speed manual, 3lt, adjustable suspension, heritage package, red two-tone interior, 4500 miles. I think I got a great deal at 53k.

Look forward to learning a lot from the forum!

Congrats....she's a beauty.

If learning is what you want to do, you ARE in the right spot. I'm in a learning curve as well, but most of the people here are ssoo very helpful providing links, ideas, trouble shooting and also much of the time some very witty and funny posts to threads. I love this forum.

Best of luck....

I ordered a reproduction window sticker from the Corvette Museum and the sticker was a tad over 70,000. At 53k I though that was about as best as I was gonna do. I was EXACTLY what I would have ordered, so I felt lucky to find it.

Welcome and all the above people are correct: you are in the right place to learn. Good luck, enjoy the car and keep on reading up (you can even use search, go to advanced search and put in key words to trigger topics you want).

I think you did good at 53k. We basically have the same car. I picked up a 2013 a couple of weeks ago.

Our Vettes are damn near twins! I really love the C6....now I just need to find a transparent top. According to my window sticker, my car was born with one. Apparently the original owner, lost, broke, sold or traded it....
