The sad news is that I no longer own a C3 Vette.
The good news is that I now own a C5.

Picked it up yesterday.

Was this a birthday present?  Happy Birthday Dave.  Nice ride and I'm going to assume this is what you're bringing in July.

ClapCry  YES -n- No.   Good for the future, and pretty color. Now your partner can ride in style and not smell fumes and be comfortable.   Bad to see the C-3 go. Hope the new owner got a invite to join the C-3 group and a promise to keep the ride in the "FAMILY" by joining us in get togethers. Now we need to wait for our FRIENDSWink to let the cat out of the bag on a maroon C-5 anniversary. Thumbs Up  It's pretty too! They "KEPT" the C-3. Maybe they'll bring BOTH of them to Buffalo!Cool Hint.

Wow Dave - What a beauty.....I'll miss the flag car - I always loved when I parked next to you.  I could steal some attention, just by association...lol!

You know, I really do enjoy driving both - they each have their own charm.  My C5 is my daily driver, so when I take the C3 out - it really still feels special.

Can't wait to see it in Buffalo!  You're really going to enjoy driving it !!

Are you talking to ME?  LOLLOL  I definitely resemble that remark....Mark.Wink  Honestly, I wasn't holding out on everyone, I've been so busy, I never thought to post it on here. Embarrassed  Sorry Folks !

So, I too am a member of "VA" (Vettes Anonymous)  ClapClap  You know that saying, "Drive it like you stole it"?  Well....I did !  Long story & I'll share it at the gathering with anyone interested in hearing me babble on, but the short version is I fell in LOVE with it at Carlisle last year, passed o it (Stuntman was leary due to the reconstructed title) & then fate played it's hand I got the car!!

I would like to bring them both to the gathering, since it's not that far - putting new seat foam in the C3 right now & refurb'ing the original seat covers so I can reassemble.  Stuntman is adding electric motors to the headlights instead of replacing actuators & relays.... again.
