Default Got my Vette after 45 years!

I just joined the Forum. Recently got this 2017 Grand Sport. It had only 900 miles. Dreams come true!!! Wanted one since I was 10 years old.

You did the right thing buying a C7. You will love it! I had to wait 41 years between buying new Corvettes. It took Chevrolet that long to get back on track with the Corvette. I love my 2017 C7, too! Absolutely great cars!

Default New Corvette


it took me a long time too. I was 51 years old when I got my first (and only - so far) Corvette, a new 2017 Stingray.

My girlfriend just bought a new 2019 Stingray too. Now we are a "red & blue" Corvette couple.

Enjoy your 'Vette and be sure to join a club in your area!!

My GS is my first as well. I was more of a luxury touring car guy and had an RC Lexus for about eight months when I got the itch yet again. Went out on a Sunday to search a few dealers and found the one I wanted. I’d actually been looking at them around town for a month and it was down to two dealers based on their selections. My wife asked if I was looking at cars again and of course I said no. Went in Monday to look closer and knew I had to have it so called my wife before I signed to tell her that well maybe I had been looking and she just shook her head. She knows me all too well and knew I wasn’t happy with the Lexus. I brought the Vette home two years ago and have yet to get the itch to go looking and for me that says something. You’re gonna love it. Congrats.

Congratulations....I was 45 when I traded my pick-up for an '86 vette. Wonderful moments will start with your first. Good luck and enjoy the ride.
