    Couldnt access the photos of your 2019 grand sport yet thank you for sharing. Im sure its an amazing vehicle...

    What options? What colors? How much of a discount percentage wise if you prefer...

    Either way have fun. Truly a fantastic buy!

    Merry christmas to both you guys! Its been tempting as hell yet Even though Ive heard the first year of a new generation isnt the greatest to purchase for various reasons...after four decades of hearing anout the rear mid engine corvette...i just have to own one...

    Im getting mine from criswell down in maryland. Mike Furman has been selling corvettes for 42 years...he is a sponsor over at the www.midenginecorvetteforum.com Ive been enjoying.

    I finally figured out how to see your corvette c7....wow what a beauty. Your color choice of the vehicle and how it coordinates with the convertible roof and the interior is shockingly beautiful.

    Im always amazed...

    Best of luck with your new ride. Really fantastic...

    Glad you were able to access the photos, and thanks very much for the compliments. To me it was the most interesting combo of what was in dealer stock in about a 500 mile radius. Once you select down to manual trans, Grand Sport convertible, 2LT or 3LT trim (mine is 2LT), there were scant few cars to choose from, usually either black or white. But I had my eye on this one from back in early November, and fortunately when the deals got better in December I finally decided to pull the trigger and the car was still available.

    So to answer your questions about pricing, my car has competition sport seats, body color exterior vents, battery protection package (basically a trickle charger that plugs into the trunk), carbon flash badge package, carbon fiber interior package, machined-face wheels, performance data recorder with nav, and the 2LT package (which has the major features of seat memory, heated and ventilated seats, HUD, and front curb view cameras, plus a couple others thingies). Total MSRP was $83,425. Advertised price in December was very good at around $68,990 (including the $2K current rebate), plus we got another $1,500 for GM employee certificate and $500 for currently leasing another GM. After a couple of little dealer charges, the bill came to $67,007. Over $16K off is a good deal in my book! The heavy pain part comes now registering the car in NJ, when I'll get dinged near another $5,000 in sales tax. Crooks!!

    Hope you're still enjoying your Z51!

    Thanks for asking. I've attached a quick pic. It really was one of the easier transactions. They started really low on my trade, but came up to a number I could live with. Drove it home the same day I looked. It is a auto, 2LT with PDR. I am really liking the white. I'd seen a white with the black wheels around town I thought looked fantastic. Now I have one too.

    The only time I wish that I didn't have three kids is when I go car shopping. I'd have a Vette in my driveway right now. I love the look of the C7's.

    I understand your pain. We couldn't opt for a 2 seater until we became empty nesters which beckoned in our new C7, WOO HOO!!

    Certainly no regrets but, we would have purchased a new Solstice GXP when they were current instead of paying for college.

    I will definitely have a Vette (or similar) when my kids go to college.

    How can Ford claim to be profitable with the Mach E, but GM can't with the base Corvette?
