It's funny you mention this. The older I get (I am 31 now) the more I realize that we really do only live once. Also, our life on this planet is but a mere blip on the scope of things. Might as well enjoy things while I can! And yes, being single helps!

I sell new Caddys and Chevys. We have a C7 Z51 3LT and even coming from me, a non Vette fan, that car amazes me every time I drive it. Though the leg room is a bit less than the C6, I love this car. Good choice Slappy, love the yellow and black.
Thanks for the compliments. I agree with you as well. I am not stretched beyond my means and I live comfortably. I guess being on a Mustang forum implies that to some people.

I look forward to being included in your will immediately! To celebrate our reunion how about we go bear-wrestling?! You can go first!
You got a deal. I will put you in my will. However, chances are that if I do die young, in will likely be in my Stingray. The totaled wreckage is yours .

Sweet ride, I love the new Stingray.
I am actually a Pontiac guy. My first care was a '99 Grand AM GT. I then moved up to a 2000 V6 Firebird. After selling the Firebird, I picked up a 2001 10th Anniversary Firehawk which I sold, partly to help me get a big down payment on the Corvette. In 2005, I picked up a new 2005 GTO. I loved that car but parts were impossible to find by the time I traded it in for my 2013 Mustang GT .

Haha. Believe it or not, my first order was for a Cyber Grey Stingray. After seeing pictures of a yellow one with the black accents I promptly changed it . Yeah, the car is very visible, but I have had nothing but kind people give me the thumbs up as they take pictures or record me .

I do not understand how people like that color. It is the only color I do not like on the C7. Although it is the lowest selling color, it's doing better than I though it would. However, I respect that everybody has different tastes .

I'd rock that lime as well. That green with a light brown interior would be classy.
Not everybody needs OSHA safety yellow (though chicks and bees often dig it).

But you didnt pick green... did you.. focker

I think that Yellow would be my number two pick after blue.

If Orange was available, it'd be the new number two.

Sharp car. I'm yet to see one in person.

I saw one a few weeks ago in black. Very few cars stop me in my tracks. That one did.

I'm not really feeling it for the new Vette. The tail light droopy thing just strikes me as weird and the front headlight covers are huge! But, I must admit, I've only seen pictures and I may have a different opinion in person.

lol...I was thinking the same thing but, opposite when I seen that bright yellow.

dudes with yellow cars usually are into what type of wax and air freshener they should buy and dudes with green cars are usually into heads, cam and gears to go faster! lol...kiddin.

Now, all you need to do is install this tune and you gotz a GTR killer, the vette will out handle and beat it in a straight line while saving a ton of money!
