I am not sure where to post this, but it seems more people read this area than some others. 

As I have mentioned in other postings, I have had serious heart problems over the last 15 years.  I have owned Corvette Specialties for the last ten years.  I have come to the conclusion that continued health depends on selling the store.  It is a great opportunity for the right person, and is bargain priced. 

I will pay a generous finder's fee (based on selling terms) to anyone who sends me a buyer.  I will provide details to anyone who sends me a PM or, better yet, and e-mail.  And of course if you send yourself as buyer, I will still pay you the fee.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone is able to provide.

Larry

Sorry to hear that you're going to step out of the business.  Cetainly can understand the reason though.
 
Your shoes will be hard to fill as you've done a great job with the store.
 
Best of luck!

I really hope everything works out for you, Larry. You are one of the good guys and you have forgotten more about Corvettes than most of us collectively know. See you Saturday.

Thanks for the wishes. 

Our show was a huge success.  The weather was perfect, there were a LOT of really nice Corvettes, including three split window coupes, one of which won best of show.  We always buy way too much food, and donate the rest to a local shelter.  This time we had to send someone out for more.  There were at least a couple of forum members in attendance, which is greatly appreciated.

Mike, our store manager wants me to mention that he is still exhausted.

Larry

I was there for about 2/1/2 hours with my car. "Twas a lovely day. Spent the day sittin' in the sun with my fellow Classic Corvettes of MN. members Jeff, his lovely wife Sue, fellow Packer fan, Dan and the Old Dude a.k.a. Wayne Grover.  CCoM was well represented. In addition to my '74, Jeff and Sue's '81, Old Dude's '75 and Dan's '03, Dave And Arlene were there with their pristine "67 427 coupe. I know I missed others, but this was all I could remember. Norsky was also there with "The Beast". Lovely cars. beautiful day...'twas a lot more fun than mowing the lawn!

Thanks for asking.  I feel fine, just always tired.  I just need to have less work load and stress. 

Two people from the forum have contacted me about the business, and a man who had a car at the show seems to be interested, so I am hopeful.

Thanks
Larry

 We will be praying for you.
There is also health problems here so slowing down to see the beauty in life is not a bad thing. Leasing is also an option.
Stay happy and keep faith at the fore front of your thoughts.
