My favorite line was, "If you live life on the corner of something to prove and nothing to lose..."

I can't believe I read the whole thing . Curiosity I guess . I will admit that was the most unique add I've ever read.

I wonder what is so different between his 2014 3LT Vert for $69,000 and my EXACT same 3LT 2016 Vert including the Museum Delivery for $82,000 MSRP. ...

My son has a Masters Degree in Creative Writing. I don't think even he could be this creative.
"it has ... 1LT, 2LT and 3LT packages"
However, at the end of the day, that's a very good price for that Vette. If he was in NC that ad would be deleted because it would be sold.

4,000 pounds? Nope.

What warranty is offered in a Vette that's lifetime (unlimited miles and time)?

Looks like he bought it from a Chevy dealer in TX that offers lifetime warranties on everything they sell.

I'm missing it, too, but wish I had one of those. Also, 4000 lbs., "...G-Force meter break 1.25 in Track mode"? Not with Z51 tires and suspension. "Unique aero package"? What's that, the stock Z51 spoiler? Caveat emptor.

Reminds me of this epic Viper ad


http://thechive.com/2016/07/06/hilar...y-it-5-photos/

The viper one was posted long ago....this guy simply plagerized most of it and added a few of his own feeble attempts at humour.
