Nice intro vid and congrats on the new to you C5. Subbed to your channel also. Mine's also a '98. I live in east Mesa off Crismon & Guadalupe. Hope to see you around sometime.

There's a Corvettes & Caddies gathering in Gilbert every 3rd Saturday of every month that's at Bourbon Street Wraps. It's from 7 until you want to leave pretty much. Pretty good people at this gathering also.

Hope you have many great miles with that great looking C5.

Had to edit my post as I watched one of your videos that said you'll be elsewhere this next weekend.

Good luck! Hope you got it at a good price. Older cars modified by amateur mechanics could be a problem. Lowered cars are only a problem if you drive them on the street, driveways or anywhere else besides your personal garage. Performance mods are only a problem if you live on a planet where they care about emissions. Otherwise your new vehicle looks lovely.
