Default C6 in Britain

A few months ago I offered up my beloved one owner MN6 bone stock California C6 for sale on this Forum. She was purchased by a fine young British couple. After a long and circuitous transport, she now has a loving home in Bath, England.

p.s. please don't flame me for the model inaccuracies on page 2, the UK is not generally up to speed on Vette's so I thought it would serve as an introduction.

Wow, that was great story, thank you for sharing it ! Glad you got to see some of America's natural beauty . Keep enjoying the 'Vette !
Last year, my wife & I did another road trip to the Great American Southwest, but our first in our '08 Corvette.

I'll bet that car gets looks and comments every day it goes out. What a great deal for that guy, and what a great story.

I've updated the Pistonheads thread some more. I had fun chasing a friend in his Porsche 993 Turbo S last week at our local circuit, Castle Combe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaZ5...ature=youtu.be

I continue to be impressed with the car and drive it most days on the road. The base suspension is too soft for the track, but it is so comfortable on Englands narrow, holed roads.
