How old were you when you got your first Vette? I was 19 I bought a busted up red 1980 C3
18 (in '70), a Fathom Green/blk interior '69 roadster 4spd w/ built 350. Everytime I drove over RR tracks the rear clip for top would pop open, got real drafty. :laughing:

Whadda car, never drove a manual a day in my life.
Thankfully Jim Wanger Chevrolet on Green Bay Ave in Milwaukee was 1,000 ft from a freeway on ramp.
Salesman put it on the street facing the onramp & said "Good luck!" After a choppy start everything was fine & 20 miles later by the time I hit our driveway I was a pro. :laughing:


Was hot crap in a cold world in that Stingray, until I blew it.

16 when I was given full access to my dad's 74...and at 18 he signed it over to me

19 when I traded it for a 1985

and I don't recall my age over the other models...but they have been a big part of my life since I can remember driving.

Currently I working on one for my wife - not mine...hers....and I don't have one anymore. :thud:

Loved the C4 since I was a kid. Still love the look just cause of how
bad I wanted one. Love the performance of the LS engines more then the look of a C4.
would not mind having another C4 just to own one, but would not give up my LS for one.

Hope to order a brand new Z06 before I am 45, 38 now.
Have 5 more years on a 2015 Silverado. When it is paid off I hope to special order my own brand new Z06.
