I've been in the car buisiness since I was 20 years old. I've been fortunate to work around some of the greatest cars ever made.
For the last 15 years, the only automobile I ever owned was a 1986.5 Nissan Hardbody truck, and a pre-owned 2001 Tahoe my wife and I bought when we first got married. We still own both vehicles, but there was just something missing. I've never owned a new car.
After months of research, we decided to buy a sports car. After narrowing the field to two autos, I spoke to the owner of my store and ordered my first new ride, a 2008 Corvette.
I ordered the car in November 2007, and it arrived February 26, 2008.
The car was ordered as a 2LT, with dual mode exhaust, two tops, polished aluminum wheels, with the six speed automatic w/paddle shift. Thanks to the guys and girls at Bowling Green and to GM for building such a great car. We've enjoyed putting 2700 miles on it so far.
