Whats going on guys! I'm excited to finally have a Corvette of my own. I fell in love with them years ago when my (slightly insane) best friend let me drive and PROPERLY learn to drive a manual in his '97 C5, then drive with him to meet his dad and fellow Corvette enthusiast in Texas to drive it around Texas Motor Speedway, and made a trip to Corvettes at Carlisle. Now, years later and with an alignment of the stars, I am the proud owner of my very own '99 FRC and I couldn't be happier. Not looking to do much to her at the moment, as I'm still enjoying the fact that she's all mine, so for now she'll stay bone stock save for the rims and short throw already on her when I got it. Aside from that I know this place is a wealth of knowledge (as my friend pointed out to me) and I look forward to learning more about the cars we all enjoy and love!

-Eddie

Thanks man, nostalgia definitely played a factor, but even after almost 20 years she still turns heads and is a blast to drive so total win win.
