Default Five years ago today my first Corvette rolled up the driveway!!!

Found our 02 here on the forum with 1968 miles. a manual and a Corsa exhaust. I felt like I think most new owners do, like a kid on Christmas!! Car was, and still is, a never seen rain/snow garage queen.

One of the biggest reasons we bought it and now in five days one of the biggest reasons we're selling it.

Those low miles and condition had a value to me and the new owner feels the same way. Hopefully he will post here as well.

What's next? I pick that up next week as well. Another manual, a Magnaflow that I don't like, but most importantly something that been through the elements a bit. Personally I feel with the new car the hand cuffs are off. Don't have to look at the weather app all the time. Don't have to squirm when we see dark clouds approaching.

Looking forward to the next one!

That's one problem when you have something too nice.

Congrats on the sale and looking forward to seeing the next ride.

That sure is a nice looking yellow C5.

You have kept her looking great, Jeff!
I believe you will enjoy your next ride even more. While we try to "work" our C5 only in good weather, we like to take trips and traveling several hundred miles at a time you are almost certain to run into a little rain.
Looking forward to your reveal.
