My One True Love

When I turned 18 I had nothing, all but kicked out of my home, I took the money I had to make a down payment on a pretty little red 96' convertible. I feel it's the best thing to ever happen to me! I never want to own another type of vehicle, this car has made me want to work harder, so that I can buy a newer version someday, I plan on never selling my first Vette though, I've only had it for a year, but ive already had more memories in it, than I've had in my short 19 years of existence.

CORVETTE FAN FOR LIFE!!!

I bought one last year a white 2014 corvette I got it repainted to black and wrecked it yesterday

Cool story dude. I love my 82 Stingway.

O.o you had the pleasure of the 4.11 gears??? I've heard the take of is amazing! mines got the standard (I want to say 2:79?). I really am not sure though, the previous owner put in some mods, and I haven't had a chance to put it on a dyno yet. Not that I really would have much use for that information, I have to admit the most complex thing I've done with the car so far was to replace the battery (I swear Chev thought their battery would last a lifetime with the placement of that damn thing).<br />
Mines a 4 speed auto w/ OD, originally 300 hp, but I think its 350+ right now, since stock it should do a quarter mile in 13.4 seconds (according to zeroto60times.com). However I've clocked it at 11.8 @ 124 mph (I think i read some place that stock is 116 mph, don't quote that tho!)<br />

meand my wife had a 1958 corvette we bought for 2500.00 just becasue she wanted the car we had been car shopping with another couple in out group as our boss paid for our first family car so we could get back and forth to work then he took it out in payments<br />
<br />
my gf saw that car and the salemen tried to sell it to her while we were ther but she said no and we went to work.<br />
<br />
at work she decide she wanted the car and called the dealer and ask then to hold it till after school the next day but she was told other had been looking at the car as our mother drove in to our work to pick up the little girl we watch after school<br />
my GF ask her mother if we gave her a cehck would she sign it to and go by her a car her mother ask why we need another car and roberta just told her she had no idea but she like it <br />
we gave her mother one of our checks and about 90 mins later we had the car at work and they tool home our impala and we drove the vette home only to lose it the next day when our grandparent showed up and soon the car had headers ad bruce cheater skllicks on it from our grandfather<br />
