Default I'm Baaack!

After an 8 year absence from Corvette ownership, AND from regular visits here to this awesome forum, I have purchased an awesome 2004 Torch Red Z06. A little over 8 years ago we decided to get prepared for my daughters eventual journey through college. About the same time we decided to move. To ease the upcoming financial burdens, I decided to sell the '99 coupe, with a promise from my wife that once my daughter was "off-the-payroll", I could look for another Corvette.

Well, the move went flawless .... my daughter graduated college and grad school (with honors!! ) .... and 4 months after she graduated I am a proud owner of a 2004 Z06!!

My previous username was QikStik, but I never really liked it (sounded like I had a personal problem )! So, I changed my username as a fresh re-start in the Corvette world!

It is so good to be back! Can't wait to learn and start contributing like the "old days"!!

Only going to bore you with one picture....

I've been waving at Corvettes from my Silverado over the last 8 years! A few strange looks, but most wave back if they see me!

Once a waver.... always a waver!!

And THANKS for all the welcomes!
