Hey...we're the same... just got my first as well after 40 years. And is also a 2017 GS. Mine had 3900 miles.
Beautiful car. Congratulations!! You'll be amazed what this car does, inside and out.

Congratulations and welcome to the wacky world of Corvette ownership. I too waited over 40 years to get my first...a 2002 torch red convertible. Loved that car. Owned for 12 years but all good things come to an end when I found an new love..2016 torch red convertible. Wishing you miles of smiles and as much fun as I have with mine.

Park it indoors and leave it... seriously. It's a sports car made for driving and fun. A bit of road rash is like a dueler's cheek scar.

(btw, it looks great. ENJOY it)

Congratulations! I'm sure the wait and anticipation was worth it now that you have your beautiful car. The more you drive it, the more you'll enjoy it!
