Default New 1998 owner, I have owned my 1969 for 40 years

I just bought a 1998 Corvette to go on trips with. I have owned a 1969 conv. 350/350hp 4 speed for 40 years. I needed cruise and air in my retirement. They are great bookends!

New Corvette Forum member “USMC_C5Z06” otherwise known as Nick from Naples, Florida, just picked up this fireball of fury. It’s a Torch Red 2001 Corvette Z06 with 22,000 miles on the clock. Some of the mods include a K&N AirCharger cold-air intake, Borla Stinger dual four-inch exhaust, ACI chin spoiler and black C6 Corvette wheels. […]

How much did it sell for?

I have a 2001 Torch in mint condition, 40k
and will be upgrading to a `15 ZO6.

I have $5300 in custom add-ons; new Michelin pilots <2k miles..

Hi USMC CZ06,

I entered an intro on you intro. I thought I was starting my own intro on a new thread. I am sorry this happen. I will try to figure out how to right this wrong.

With that being said, you bought a great looking C5. It was a great choice! Love the color.

If you or any other member can tell me how to do the intro right it would help me very much. I will remove my intro from yours.

Sorry, this is a great site.

Mark
