Very nice. At 25 YOA I could only dream about a corvette. Turned 63 before I made the jump. BTY, how does the car seat fit?

I bought mine a couple years ago. I am still in my 20's. The car is a blast, especially at our age. If you don't have a girlfriend yet... you will.

Congrats. Wish I had the opportunity to pull the trigger at 25.

Enjoy the first of what will probably be multiple Vettes.

Thank you so much everyone! Funny thing is, the Admiral Blue wasn't even on my mind when I got there because I had pretty much decided on a gray one I had seen online the day before.

After driving the gray vette and thinking long and hard about it I decided I would pull the trigger. Then the dealer said "By the way, I have a blue one that has an extra $1500 off, with the same specs if you want to see that". Needless to say that threw me for a major loop.
Suddenly the color I was somehow oblivious of and hadn't even noticed existed turned out to be the "I gotta have that blue in my life" haha.

A very happy moment.

I guess I had become a little cocky because I generally knew more than the dealer did when I was looking at new Mustangs, Camaros, and Challengers so they didn't try to pressure me at all. It almost felt like I had to pull the dealer's arm to try and convince me to buy a car over these last few months!!

I really wanted a Vette from the start but no one took me seriously, and so I was not able to test drive any. Kerbeck finally let me test drive one, so I decided they could have my business

Thank you!! and you are 100% correct Although it would probably be best to keep it since it has a LSD and is FWD so it really helps a lot when my 2 mile long street is covered in snow!

Awesome car, awesome color. I just got my Admiral Blue GS this week as well. I waited until I was 53 to get my first one.
Congrats to you as well! And I absolutely agree. I grew up loving American muscle and V8s. The sound, the feeling. It's an experience! Funny thing, though, is I grew up in a Ford family But there's already too many mustangs in the family tree and the Corvette is a whole other kind of specimen!

lmao yea no girlfriend. Been single for 3 years (which was needed after a 6 year relationship from hell).

Funny thing is, a girl I'm talking to has a Camaro SS and her father has a C7 Z06 so I think I might have to figure out how to keep her interested

Just want to say congrats to you too though man! Killin the game.

Thank you so much! and yea I was starting to get too stingy with money always worrying about the future and losing track of "the now". Gotta stop and smell the roses sometimes!
