Default Is the C7 your first Vette?

I've always liked vettes but the C7 was the tipping point and I pulled the trigger more than two years ago. I've been a P-Car / Audi owner/fanatic for years. I have no regrets. I know there are a lot of guys / gals out there that have had 2 / 5 / 10+ vettes. Curious if the C7 is your first.

Had a ride in one around 1969 In a Lil Red Corvette.I visited it often just to look at it.I was about 10yrs.old.


Facsimile
Around 45 Yrs.later purchased a 2002 Used.Nice car.


Then the C7 hit the dealer...ohh Man what a car just sitting their.Visited them often,traveled to see different combo's.
Then finally the Grand Sport


No Comparison..It is a friggen Race Car

First here, had not considered any Corvette until the C7. My first car was a manual 5-speed, and unless the C8 has a real manual transmission, my M7 C7 will be with me until I can't drive anymore and need to get an autonomous vehicle.
