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.

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

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.
