Default Purchased my 2017 7MT Stingray last night! My first Vette.

Hi all!

So yesterday since the weather was so nice in NJ, a friend and I decided to swing by Kerbeck Chevy in Atlantic City.

Originally it started as a joke since I've been looking for used C7 vettes for the last few months, but what started out as a nice day browsing turned into me buying a new LT1 Admiral Blue Stingray.

I very rarely treat myself to nice things and am quite frugal with my money, always investing everything I have but I've decided that buying this vette at 25 years old won't be the end of my life working as an engineer.

I've spent many hours working on my first two vehicles (1991 5spd Cherokee and 2002 6spd Maxima) and have a solid understanding of cars and have come to love the engineering feat that is the C7 Vette.

Excited to be a part of the community! Pics Below.

-Pete

That is awesome, congratulations!! Might as well enjoy it while you are young, until you are too old to drive. Why wait?

Congrats on your new ride. Car dealers are a dangerous place especially when they are full of new Vettes

Congratulations! Beautiful new Corvette!

Bought my 1st new Corvette at 25 also. A brand new 1977. (See avatar.) Decided 40 years later to shop for my 2nd Corvette, a C7.
