Default Got my Black 427 Vert home Saturday

Long story, I will make it short. I went to Kerbeck Chevrolet, to buy a 2013 Grand Sport, and left with a Black 1SB, ZR1 rimmed 427 convertible. I love this car more than any other machine I have ever owned. I live in Utah, and the drive home was a blast, and quite hard, at the same time. Those guys got me outta there in half an hour. They picked me up at the Philly airport, and the rest is history.

Safe at home in Utah



Pete and I at Kerbeck



Miles equals year



Miles equals HP!!



Pretty place in central Pennsylvania



Sticker Shock!!!

I was going to guess around 2000 miles. All the best, the car is beautiful.

The color is right, and she looks great. I bet it was thrill traveling home, showing off to everyone has you pass them

Congrats.

Black is a great color. But, noticing all the black vehicles in your driveway, I guess you already know that.

I just did the same. Was looking for a GS and found a 427 at Kerbeck. Flew in to Philly, got the royal treatment and Pete and Dave had me all set in 30 minutes. Then a long, fun ride home. Congratulations!

Congratulations, on the 427 Convertible and a trip that was well worthwhile.

Very, very nice. The red calipers, ZR1 wheels and the flags on the headrests are some excellent accents with the black.
