Going friday to PU my first vette

I've come close several times. Almost bought a 61 in 79 but thought $2500 was too much. Almost bought a 71-72, I don't remember which, for $3995. Again I thought it was too much. (be kind, I was young) but I've found a nice 90 vert in NC and I'm going after it friday. It's not perfect and it's high miles, but, there's more value in new stuff on it than the asking price and a fixer-upper would need everything this one has. I'll try to post a pic. I'm excited.

Its a C4 Roadster.
Your going to love it.
The chassis is very strong being a convertible.
Many structural changes were made over the coupe.
Top down open air feel is priceless in the spring and fall weather driving.
Love my 87 A4 vert.

Can you gus get the pic to open? It does in the preview but not after I submit the post. Maybe it's just my PC here at home. I'll try from work tomorrow.

Congrats on the vert! Another willing subject succombs to the disease !!!!! As it is a 90 be sure to read up on all the known issues with them. Several problems and fixes the biggest being the SRS system. If the seat belt light in the guage display is constantly lit then start reading !!! You will love it come summer ! Nice ride
