lol, relax man. Car dealers are honest hard worki..lol, I canít even finish the sentence.

but seriously, Iím sure the car is fine. Youíre going to give the car a good inspection, might as well also look for signs of flood damage. Google can probably point you for things to look for but Iíd guess smelly carpet and rusted bolts inside the car (seat rails)

The night before picking up your first Vette is a tough one filled with excitement. Enjoy the journey

Today is a special moment for me and I wanted to share it with you, my fellow Corvette enthusiasts. Being able to own a Corvette Z06 has been a dream of mine for over a decade now and itís an amazing feeling being able to realize oneís dream.
Pretty cool isnít it? I started on Z06Vette.com back in 2000 in my late teenage years, my user name was Vetteless
Iíve wanted a Vette since I was a little kid, It's a fun journey and in just a few hours youíll be able to say youíve accomplished another little something in your life. Enjoy the ride (life, car, etc)

Most important thing, drive safe. These cars are wild and can lose it pretty quick. If youíre going to get aggressive, I suggest an empty parking lot to get a feel for the tires limits

Although I don't know this shop personally it is a big shop and has lots of customers and locations in both Houston and Dallas. They aren't going to be the type of place that churn and burn flood cars. Enjoy the trip.
