~Having a Corvette conversation with anyone can reach back 65 years so I know judging by the age of whom I am speaking with what Generation Corvette we will land on...which is fine by me as I have owned every Generation Corvette but a C3(1968-1982). Yesterday I am speaking with a Gentleman on the showroom floor and he marvels at the technology of todays generation Corvette. The 7th Generation truly is a fantastic Sports car...especially for any Corvette enthusiast that has owned many of the cars from the past. Can it be improved on? Thats what the Corvette engineers work on every single day for future product. Stay tuned my friends as this next year will be exciting.

~Jeff H. Of Hopewell Junction, New York was advised by a relative to check out my inventory as he had bought a 2012 Corvette ZR1 from me. Jeff found 140 Corvettes in my inventory and narrowed it down to two. Jeff decided on this new 2017 Grand Sport Convt in Watkins Glen Gray Metallic with two tone gray interior. Other features that stand out are the Red seat belts, Auto trans, chrome wheels, navigation/PDR, 2LT and Gray power top. Jeff and his friend and son drove 300 miles down to see me yesterday and within 90 minutes they were headed back North to NY. This is one stunning color combo.

~Tom P. of Ellicott City,Maryland orders two new Corvettes every year for himself and his son. These 2018 Corvette Grand Sports were two of the first built on the first day of production. The Black GS is vin# 52 and the Watkins Glen Gray is vin#30.
Tom ordered his Gray GS with CF good stripe, CF badge Pkg, red calipers, auto trans, black wheels, CF mirrors and 1LT Pkg. His son TJ ordered a Black GS with Yellow hash marks to match the yellow calipers, CF badge Pkg, auto trans, black wheels and 1LT Pkg. They traded in a 17 GS and a 17 Red Stingray. Tom refers probably 5-6 Corvette customers my way each year.

Great Photo's of the GS'S.Wasn't many photo's of this Bada$$ Car.Really Appreciated
That 2 Tone looks even Greater in person.I had to have it also.Everyone has a different eye for the so many Winning Combo's.Make's for a decision all the more difficult.
Some Buyers are fortunate to not live in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Taxachusetts.Probably the only State run by The Insurance Parasite Company's that don't honor temporary tags.
So it's a 2 Trip to buy out of state...So much for the rant..It is what it is..
I drove back over the GW Bridge.Ain't no way your Not leaving parts and pieces of your new GS On 95 North..
Good Luck New Owners.Take the Ready to fall into the River Tappenzie Bridge if heading Northbound

Dale#3-I have sold many customers that reside in Mass...We do all the paperwork via Fed Ex at our expense. They take said paperwork to complete the tag process and I either ship their new Corvette or they fly down and drive back...gets around the no temp tag situation.

Another nice week of sales.

Thanks for sharing the Grand Sport photos.

I was slowly getting over the LeMans race last week, until I saw the LeMans photos. What a disappointing outcome for Corvette Racing.

Have a great week.

Thanks for another great post! I particularly enjoyed the ode to the original 1963 GS, of course! (And the chrome C4 also caught my eye...wowza!)

Nice pics Mike....

The Harley Earl black and white picture of the auto show sure looks a lot like the Brussels Autoworld. Or maybe it's Paris? Very similar building. I used to live a stone's throw from there in Brussels. Great place to see some very unique cars from around the world.
