Default Back...with a new(er) Vette!

Ok Guys, I’m back! I have been a member of this forum for a while (over a decade) but sold my last Vette (C5 Vert) a couple of years ago and just picked up this 14 Z51 Vert a few weeks ago from a GREAT guy in New Hampshire! Really like the car and the color. It’s my first yellow car aver, and I honestly wasn’t fond of the yellow C5’s and C6’s. But the body lines on this model are perfect for the bold colors in my opinion and make it look even more exotic! I don’t intend to do much to it, but I have added the Z06 grill, side skirts, led markers, convertible top module, Lloyds mats, and will be doing the stage 2 wickers this week end. As you can see by the pics I love my toys! I’m in the San Antonio Texas area (Cibolo) and hope to see some of you guys (and Gals!) around town.

Congratulations on the Vette, if I see that beast on the road when I’m in SAT I will be waving.

I love your vette and Panamera. I seriously considered the panny, but ultimately went with the vette. Cannot afford both.

Also kinda jelly of the 3 car garage.
