Default My first ever Corvette

Picked up my first ever corvette yesterday. placed the order and 7 weeks later my baby is here. Man do i love this thing, not only is it my first corvette but my first ever manual as well (had a couple hours under my belt before hand and so far so good)

and to put the cherry on top, not 5 minutes from pulling out of the dealership did i end up convying with a group of 2 other random corvette owners.

Welcome to the! I also have my first Corvette, a 2017 Stingray in Torch Red. It is a 7spd manual with the 2LT trim package. My girlfriend liked it so much that she bought her own Corvette......a 2019 Stingray 1LT in Elkhart Lake Blue. Nothing like going to Corvette club events as a two-car couple!

I would suggest joining a local club and commiserating with like-minded people who appreciate the virtues of owning America's sports car. Enjoy!!
