The first time I fell in Love with a Corvette it was 1987 and I was in the 7th grade. My Sister had purchased a 1973 Red Stingray Coupe. It had been refurbished and was in immaculate condition. I could not stop staring at that car and enjoyed every chance I got to ride in it.
Fast forward to 2010. I am 35 years old and in the market for a Corvette of my own. I really wanted a black C6 but my budget would only allow for a C5. After months of searching I found an immaculate 2000 Torch Red Coupe. I bought a one way flight to Dallas, TX. and purchased the car.
First ride in it was a six hour ride home and I enjoyed every minute of it.
I enjoyed that C5 for six years and 12,000 miles. I attended numerous car shows and won several awards but deep down inside I wanted that illusive C6.
In July of 2015 I went to a local dealer to get an oil change in my C5. While being serviced I walked the dealer’s lot and saw my Dream Car. It was a 2012 Centennial Edition Grand Sport. I had wanted a Centennial Edition ever since it debuted in 2012. I didn’t go home with it that day but a week later it was mine.
As I always say, “Living The Dream.” Thanks to Corvette.
