I have had 15 vets over the years starting in 1975 with my last one a 2004 coupe. Traded it in on the best running and handling corvette I have ever owned 2009 Red Z06 3LZ package. What a truly wonderful Christmas present and Retirement present to myself... I still have a 1981 Red 4 speed with less than 100K miles I bought it new and it looks good. I am president of the Longview,Tx Corvette club ( TOGCC ) along with 94 other Corvette friends.
