Kendall Chevrolet in Eugene OR. is our club (Cascade Corvette Club) sponsor. My wife, Becky, is club president this year, and thought it would be nice to to take a cake over to the dealership for the folks to enjoy. Typically she would ask if I wanted to go along, which I normally wouldn't do. We delivered the cake, then on the way out she said "hey let's take a look at that "Vette."" I hadn't seen it but there was the most gorgeous "11 Torch Red Grand Sport convertible! (We've had an '05 VR convertible for about 4 1/2 years and have been very happy with it). We walked over to it (I really wanted to get the hell out of there because I knew we weren't looking to buy anything). She got in it, looked up at me and said, "Honey, let's get it!"

Now, put yourself in my place. Perfectly happy with a gorgeous '05 convertible, wife says let's get it! What the hell do you do??????

So, I did what any true Corvette loving man would. I said OK!!

Went home, cleaned up the '05, then went to the dealership in the morning. 4 hours later this unbelievable car is sitting in my garage! Absolutely loaded, I have exactly 207 miles on it, and every one (except the 4 miles that some SOB at the dealership put on it) has been amazing.

My '05 was a fabulous car, and I loved the hell out of it, but this GS is head and shoulders above it in nearly every sense.

By the way, the day I went back to the dealer to make the deal.............................my birthday. Happy 64th to me!:partyon::partyon::partyon::thumbsup::thumbsup:;);):cheers::cheers:

I've been hit with the $0.50 Snickers bar at the checkout counter as an impulse buy, but never a new 'vette! :laughing:

Sounds like a great birthday to me :thumbsup:
