Default I Got It! WooT!

Well after a few months of waiting until I was ready, I picked up the one I saw awhile back and it was still available.

Came home with it today. I am in love. It is surprisingly comfortable and the ride was nice and tight. Feels very solid. Harmonic Balancer looked fine. The car needed pads, not sure why they didn't have that done already. Guess hoping someone not to pay attention. However, got an appt for them to cover that.

Now to start looking at some simple upgrades. Maybe a new radio and a rear camera, intake and eventually an exhaust and tune. Will miss my remote start I had in the Camaro, but definitely worth it.

2012 Grand Sport 2LT (37k miles). Got it for 31k.

What are you looking for? Funny, I noticed you were from Kentucky. The Vette's first owner was from Kentucky. He sold/traded it in with 21,000 miles on it and the second owner from MD had it until now. So he put on another 16,000 miles on it. Definitely kept up well, minus the brake pads. Good Luck on your search!


Thanks Everyone! Such an amazing feeling. It's funny. I didn't see one Vette on the way home. Was dying to wave at someone!

That is a great sentiment, it is different than buying most other cars. Usually when I buy a new vehicle I start seeing them all over the place when I never noticed them before, with a C6 it hasn't been that way, they seem rare.
Enjoy your new ride!
