Finally own a Corvette

After dreaming of owning a Vette for as long as I can remember I'm proud to say I finally have one to call my own. I recently purchased a 2009 C6

congrats on the purchase,
step one

buy a shop manual, it may look expensive but it will save you hundreds of dollars, over the cost in the long haul

yes theres most likely a CD version much cheaper, personally,
I'd get both, versions

Smithers, unleash the hounds!
Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Welcome to DC and congratulations on your "new to you" Corvette. We all like to see pics of cars because many of us can't read too well. Speaking of that, please type any future replies very slowly because most of us can't read too fast.

Congratulations and welcome to DC.

Enjoy your new vette, and don't bother trying to wipe the smile off your face, it's impossible.
