I have never been a "corvette guy". I have been perfectly happy with my 350z roadster, but the C7 caught my eye and changed my mind. Last week I went to my local Chevrolet dealer and ordered one (2LT, Z51, dual mode exhaust, magnetic select ride, Lime Rock Green are the highlights).

So now I settle in and patiently wait for what could be up to 6(!) months for mine to arrive, and I will have to vicariously enjoy my C7 through your posts.

Thanks for having me and I look forward to having my canteen filled with all kinds of Corvette knowledge!

@ overflow-- I have always been satisfied with Nissan and my 350z is no exception. In fact I have quite a soft spot for it, and am going to be sad when I sell it. But it is time for something more........mature, and the C7 fits that bill to a T.

@asptroopa1--thanks for the tip. I currently live in Greenbrier. I am not an Arkansas native, work brought me here. I ordered from Superior Chev in Conway.
I am wanting to join a local (central Arkansas area is fine. Don't mind traveling a little bit) corvette club. Do know of any?
Thanks

Delivery date of Feb 19! ( weather permitting)
Just got done at the dealership trading in my 350z, and taking care of financials. Now all have to do is wait for her to arrive and take delivery. I am so impatient right now!

10-4! Just looked at the long range weather forecast and it looks favorable for next week. I wonder if the storm that is hitting now is negatively effecting the assembly line or shipping.
Also curious if the sink hole at the museum is slowing anything down...... Surely not
