Default I'm Loving My 427 Convertible! Best Corvette I've Ever Owned!

I just wanted to say that I (Tim Boone) love my 427 Convertible. I have so much fun with this car. By the way this is my personal car and not Boardwalk Chevrolet's car. This is my 7th Corvette that I have owned. I've had it for almost a year now. Pretty much stock except for LED side markers, cold air intake, and custom stripes which you can see in the picture.



I also have about 500hp 1970 C10. I know it is not a Corvette, but it is still a Chevrolet and in the 500hp club. Loud as hell and fun to drive with a massive cam. LOL!

Thank you. I just wish they would have made the 427 convertible sooner. It would have saved me my Grand Sport and Z06 purchases. LOL!

I'm glad you are able to get in some fun time as hard as you work Tim. I am having a blast in my grand sport you sold me so I know you are having a bigger blast in that beast!
Nice truck.

Yeah you have to have some fun every once in awhile. I only drive the vette once a week and the truck maybe once a month. The truck gets a whole 4mpg. LOL!

Nice rides!

Glad you're enjoying your 427! I really love my 427! It is a blast to ride, and of course it has a classic old school appeal to it.

A lot of people young and old(er) compliment me on the 427, and want to know more about it. Pretty good feelings!

That GS Vert. you sold me last year, is also a blast to drive! I have had a couple of buyers but when it came down to really selling it, I couldn't do it! That deal you gave me was a knock out, I will never be able to replace for the price you got me!!!

Default Got to love the 427 Vert

I bought this at Kerbeck, drove to SLC Utah!

This is upper PA, along the way home. It is near Corning or Wellsville, PA.

Wow...long drive. Plus, that looks like the neighborhood where I used to live. They really are nice looking cars. I've seen all kinds of combos and have yet to see one I wouldn't love to own.
