I had a great time in Columbus Friday night/Saturday morning! Spent the evening with Mark and Karen Thomas in Columbus...and what a treat that was! It's people like Mark and Karen who make the Corvette family so special. It was the first time we had met in person, but it was like we had known each other for a long, long time.

I had driven down to Columbus after picking up my brand new 2013 NRB Grand Sport convertible at Les Standford Chevrolet in Dearborn, Michigan, and was to pick up a great friend, Kirby Montgomery, from Richmond, Virginia, on Saturday morning at the Columbus airport to take him to Coughlin Chevrolet so he could pick up his brand new TR Stingray. I was blown away by all of the amazing C7s there, but even more impressed by the warm reception and conversation with Rick Conti, whom I was meeting for the first time.

Needless to say, it was an incredible weekend! Hope you enjoy the eye candy (the cars, anyway...haha)!

Awesome. Thanks for sharing! So you have a 13 & a 14?
Thanks! And you're welcome! :) I bought my 2014 in October, 2013, and my new 2013 in March, 2014. Couldn't pass up a good deal on a left over 2013 GS vert...and my wife will really enjoy driving the 2013 automatic. She won't even touch the 7 speed. Her loss! haha!

I also still have my 1994 competition yellow vert and 1973 dark blue coupe. Life is good!

Nice Jman! Just remember these are vettes and not pokemon :)
Is it me or does it look like Rick is losing weight since the start of the C7 season?
More importantly, did you get to hold his Corvette Barbie??

Yes, I did! Haha! And I think he's been too busy to eat much lately!

I bought mine from Rick. He's the best! I just wish he was down here in Mississippi so I could visit him more. At least there is facebook. Sigh. And thanks for posting the great pictures! I can't believe how many C7's he has on his lot now! When I got mine, I think there were 4 total. Congratulations and have fun!
