Did you get it?
I got here on the first of this month. Had 4 miles on it and drove it 100 from RI to CT. It's now sitting in my garage. Had about a dozen thumbs up from random drivers and at least one person took of pic of me while driving. Didn't go over 4k rpm, but it certainly seems to have the "balls" to go. Can't wait for Spring.

Now we got to set-up some sort of meet and greet.

Thanks. Are you still holding out for the 2015 model?
I am unless a dealer sells me one at invoice. :) I'm waiting for several reasons, one to save up and pay cash if I can, two being a completely new model getting some of the bugs out, three price will come down from sticker more, and four usually more features are added the 2nd year. In this case we've seen the 8-speed auto, apps and camera. Maybe even new color.....

Fair enough... I'm content so far with what the car has to offer. I couldn't wait any longer, the empty spot in the bay was killin' me!

Trust me the wait is killing me! I would love to drive to Corvettes at Carlisle this year in one. Timing will be tough if I have to order one. Local dealer has like 150 sitting on their lot.

Oh didn't realize they had such a huge event. Out here in CT (by the airport), they have a Vette night and last year they had over 1k show up, on a Monday night!

If you haven't been to Corvettes at Carlisle in Aug then you haven't lived. :) We are talking acres of Corvettes, Vendors and parts! Thousands of Corvettes and even GM is there with their engineers and cars. You can walk for 3 days and not see everything.

Looks like something I'm going to have to consider. The 'vette scene is all new to me

For those who love to drive their Corvettes, recommend considering the 2014 National Corvette Caravan as an option for some. Ends in Bowling Green, at the National Corvette Museum. Expecting 7,500+ Corvettes when all the local and regional Caravans link up together.

Link has "sub-links" with detailed into on this every-five-year event. Next one: This August!
