I just bought my first Vette last April after a 40 year wait. I've had the passion for Vettes ever since my uncle took me for rides in his '60, '64', and '67 Vettes when i was little. So this Vette means alot to me and always will. It's an '81 two tone that was the first color combination to roll off the Bowling Green assembly line. It had only 31k when I got it, and now has a bit over 33k. This is a turn key Vette that was kept in a garage with heat, humidity control, and hepa filers, and is in fantastic shape . It even still has the original exhaust on it.

Talking How many corvettes have you owned?

Finally I was 59 1/2, retired, kids married and time to make my dream come true - 2007 Monterey red convertible. My neighbor had a new 1957 when I was a kid and it was love at first sight. I was moonstruck. When I saw the 1963 Stingray for the first time I fell deeper in love with the "Vette". Since then I have been a "Vette" man. It's the car that I judged all other cars against- this doesn't seem fair since all others paled in comparison. I have never seena vettethat I didn't like. Last April my wife and I went to the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green - pure heaven! The C5-C6 birthday bash had the parking lot filled to capacity with 5's and 6's, each one nicer than the next. We went to the assembly plant for a tour to see them build the Vette. It was something that all Corvette enthusiasts should see. I wish that I had known about the museum delivery option before I purchased mine. Next time will be a different story. Needless to say, I love my first vette.

I just purchased my first last week. I was a Nissan Z man for many years. This car became available to me and after trying it out, I couldn't help myself. I fell in love with it on the spot. The car is a black 86 coupe, with just 84000miles. The handling is on par with my 300zx, but the torque of the vette is phenomenal. Top end on both cars is about the same, but the vette gets out of the hole so much quicker. I sold the z (91 na 136000), and snapped the vette up before someone else could get it. I plan on keeping this car for many years.

I currently own three. An 'o5 Black on Black convertable, a '96 White coupe, and a Silver '81. Also in the family is a 1967 427cid 390hp coupe with factory air, power windows, ps,pb, powerglide auto, numbers match. A very nice car but could use paint and a windshield seal. Garage kept with only 67,000 miles. The '67 is owned by my mother.

I have owned three but I hope to own two more after today. I bougt a part for my 67 vette this week and included in my part (guage) was a flyer about a corvette giveaway at www.winthevettes.com This children's charity is giving away two 427's - tickets are $3.00 but they're really cheap if you buy more. It's a sweepstakes and the money goes to hospitalized kids confined to hospitals. Unbelievable! You can win both cars tax free. one's a 427 red 67' tripower convert. the other's an 08' Lingenfelter. both red convertibles. check it out.

Nope, not here. Spend my play money on Vettes!

My story is similar, except I had to wait a long time to get my first one. I loved all three of my Vettes, my only regret being that I did not keep my C5 when I bought my C6 (wish I had them both.)

I still have my first Vette, even though I don't really need it, I can't seem to part with my C4.
All of the time I waited to get my first Vette it just made it sweeter.

We have another car (a 2008 Lincoln MKZ) that is very nice, but it just aint the same as getting behind the wheel of my Vettes.
