    C5 after looking for a year.

    Did not know where to put this post, so please move as needed. Found a 1997 with 14,090 miles on it. One owner, dark red interior. Wasn’t really thrilled about a white car. But had to go look at it. I was blown away with how good the car looked, so it now currently sits in our garage. I thought you’d get a kick out of this low mileage girl. Please tell me what you think. Also at the end, a shot of the showroom.
    Thanks as always. Joe

    She had original Goodyear tires date code correct for 1997. They didn’t look bad, but I had to replace them. Safety. When the wife and I want to take a ride it may be 600 miles. So we put a set of pilot sport AS 3+ Michelin‘s. What a difference in the ride! From hard rubber to real tires. Pretty interesting, and great fun.....

    Great Corvette, Mack! A real classic color combination and it looks like new. I'm sure there's a lot of smiles ahead.

    Great car Mack. I wish our site could let us rotate the pictures so I don't have to lie on my desk to view them. --Bob

    Not your fault. It is the website and I have had an ongoing discussion about this with no resolution of the problem. Every other system I use has this rotate ability but not here. Even if you rotate them on your computer they come out sideways or upside down depending on how you took the picture with your camera. Apparently the continuing response to me is make sure I take all my pictures in "landscape mode", which of course I do not. --Bob

    We took the 97 out on a 310 mile trip over the weekend. Can’t believe how well it rides. It is soft but good. Also, 70 mph about 1/2 of the time on the interstate. Was surprised at the MPG. Our first LS1. Name:  66D2BB96-086A-473C-9E25-883486331B05.jpeg
