Your neighbor got a vette?

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Those headlights look somewhat vaguely familiar, as do the four round taillights.

Its official, you SUCK!

Congrats on the new toy. But all things considered, would rather have the one in the background. Man, I miss my lightning.

i see that you get passed a lot by them, seeing first the headlights and then the tail

Re: Boba-Fett...er....Bubba-Vette

thanks all. i have been wanting one since i was about 8. i finally got the right deal and had enough cash saved up to jump on it.

i bought it in MI and drove it straight back on wednesday. it was a long, tiring trip - about 10.5 hours with only 2 gas stops. when i finally reached home i surprised my wife, as she had NO idea i was buying it.

so now i need to wax it to make it shiny

turned out to be the test cars that GM was hauling around. i kept going around and trying different ones before i bought it. i could not reproduce it. i asked on just about every forum i could find about the squeeking and rattling, nobody said they had that issue.

if it starts happening i will sell it. i got enough off of it to break even on a short sale
