First Vette and all I can say is WOW! I love it and can't wait for Spring. Took it out this past Sunday on one of Cincy's first Sunny warm days.

Nice choice, and the thrill of driving the only true America's Sport car.
Have fun this summer!

Beautiful find!
Year?
Miles?
Options?
OTD $?

At the risk of being a buzz kill, unless you're used to HP vehicles?
Exercise due caution until you're used to the power, especially when outside temps are <55*.
HP tires are flat out dangerous & new owners learn it the hard way, such as the member who posted this AM father tanked his Z06.

Probably heard Corvettes are, 'ticket magnets.'
Not true.
It's the driver who becomes the ticket magnet.

It's the driver who becomes the ticket magnet.
Few things to add:
08 Base 3LT
30K miles
Has quiet a few mods: Grill, Side vents, Corsa, Rear Stainless Script, Eagle Eye LED's, Multiple under hood body color match items, just to name a few.
Feel like i got a good deal at 27 out of the door.

As far as HP - think i've got it covered. I've always driven a RWD V-8 Chevy however nothing i've owned matches this HP. (i have owned Z28's and currently the Vette sits next to my '95 Impala SS.
