Default New C7 owner

Greetings from Chesapeake, VA! Long time visitor, first time poster. I have been a Corvette fan for a very long time but have never been in a position to own one. Well that changed Friday when I added a 2017 Long Beach Red Z51 convertible to my stable. Even though I have only had the car a few days I have to say I am truly impressed with the performance of this car. The sound it makes is absolutely unbelievable. I look forward to participating in the forums as an owner!I also know new owner posts are really not legit unless pictures are included so here ya go.

I actually drove it in the rain today. The windshield wipers must be connected to the engine because they rotate almost as fast as the car drives.
