Default First time Vette owner...

Hello all,

I joined the clubs - the Corvette club, the 5% club, and the Corvette Forum. It's good to finally arrive. Just picked up my Silver C7 from Kerbeck (Sam K. is the man!!!!). Pictures included.
I've always been a European sedan person, but in my "old age" (I am 49) I wanted something special and beautiful while still being a great, comfortable, and reliable car. With 530 miles on the odometer, I feel like the luckiest person on earth, I am in love!!! I will follow up with some reviews and comments, and of course a bunch of questions...

Regards,
J

Welcome!
The C7 looks great in silver (or just about any color).
Now that you've "arrived," go out and drive the wheels off that beauty.

Congratulations, and welcome to the family. It's a beauty. You need to start practicing your best Corvette wave when you meet another family member. Enjoy, you never forget your first.

Welcome to the forum.

Great looking Car, congratulations!

Warning: I got my first Vette in my late 40s also, and I am on Vette # 7. (I currently own 2.) These things can become addicting.
