The most beautiful Corvette I’ve ever seen.

I had no intention of buy what would be my second Corvette since I had planned on keeping my 50th Anniversary Corvette “forever”. Once I saw this 2021 Corvette, I knew that I had to bring it home.


For the money this car is impossible to beat

The styling is outstanding. I have other vette owners stopping and taking pictures as I go down the road. The feeling as you drive is smooth and solid. The dashboard is filled with goodies.


Most Incredible Value for a Supercar EVER!

This car begs for MORE! More throttle, more G's, louder music, more vigilance (speed traps), more senseless trips to ____ (fill in the blank), the longest way to work, more launch control accelerations for no reason ... except they are EXHILARATING... let the adrenaline rush! Wow, I could go on and on.
