Been lurking for a few months and finally took the plunge, ordered yesterday. This will be my first Corvette. So many factors came into play: the styling of the new C7, not ready to retire, its my turn to buy (I never sell though), and I feel like I can afford it. My other rides are a 1970 AMX, a 2007 Suzuki M109R, and my '99 F250 tow vehicle. Oh yeah, I'll be giving up my trusty '92 Acura Integra. The bike may go as I'm far more comfortable on 4 wheels, but we'll see. Anyway, so much great information here, thanks to all who provide it. I'll be asking for progress but will give it a few weeks. My biggest hurdle was selecting a color; started at Laguna Blue, changed to Cyber Gray, and ended up with white. Anyway, again, great site, thanks for having me.
