First you tell us that you're leaving (for Tennessee of all places), and then you're selling your vette? Wassup with that? Oh I see, since you will be so close to BG your going to take factory delivery of a C6 right? I know you have the Viagra, I mean the Vega, but you gotta have a vette. Any details? Just trying to be nosey. Seeya, Robert :leaving

well I will only sell it at my price, I won't give it away. I don't have to sell it. I will keep it if the price isn't met.

It would be nice to sell so I won't have to move it and we plan on doing another Corvette (maybe a C5) when we get to TN.

I will be taking the Corvette to the Pavilions this weekend, in case anyone is interested in looking it over out at the show.

What time are you going? I took the DeLorean last Saturday, and at 8:45 AM the lot was half full. Don't think I'm taking the D this week, but I think I may come down with a chair and hang out.
