What Generation Corvette, was your first? And how long have you owned one?


Is the C6 your FIRST Corvette?

...and how long have you owned Corvettes? Cumulative years are fine, if you had a gap in ownership

My first one was an 84, which I had for only a couple of months back in 1991:






I had a long gap in between my current Corvette, 13 years! I have owned my C5 since August 2004. I will never be without a Corvette ever again!

First one was 64 air coupe purchased in `74.

and then ten more over 30 of the next 35 years.

An ad in Motor Trend was the tipping point in 1974 . . "If you've wanted a Corvette since you were a kid . . ..you've waited long enough!"

I've had my 05' for about 4 weeks. And hopefully I'll have it for many years to come.

In model years, I have only owned Corvettes for about 9 years. The only break in ownership was a few months waiting for delivery.

My first Vette was a 2002 C5.

My second Vette was a 2005 C6 (no wart).

My 3rd and current Vette is a 2008 C6.

The first Corvette I bought was a 02 coupe. It was the first Corvette that rode half way decently. I came close in 62 but I got married and purchased a Impala SS instead. I have driven every series Corvette made since the C1 except the ZR1. IMO the C6 is the best of them all. I absolutely love taking it out for a ride. And something else. I have purchased some 20 new cars and trucks in my lifetime and NOT ONE has been foreign built.

Still have a '61, not running tho- that's the only vette i ever drove, until i got an 09 MN6 Z51 vert. Damn, they've come a long way! I freakin' love this 09- I have seen a little oil consumption tho, in 2000 miles, so i'm a little concerned about the engine recall- am watching closely.........

My 2000 FRC was my first Corvette - and what a first Vett to own. I bought it new in Jan 2000 and sold it in Mar 2005. It was a great car. I ordered my 2008 C6 and picked it up at the NCM in September 2007. My birthday present: from me to me with love. Before that, I owned Camaros.
