Be Careful What You Look At

I seek forgiveness but not redemption, for I have strayed from the flock (or in this case the herd). Once again, I have committed vehicular promiscuity. In my quest to upgrade to a 5.0, I sold my 05 GT for more than I had in it. A noble feat in itself. But soon I caught myself being pulled into a vortex of all manner of shiny objects. I was seduced by one particular form that captivated me all the way to my savings account. So my friends (if I am worthy to use that term), on those winter nights when the wind blows cold and you think you hear the sounds of creaking fiberglass, that would be me.

for you, I would say "be careful what yellow things you look at" LOL

and I understand exactly what you are saying, I have avoided test driving any Corvettes or later model Mustangs for exactly that reason!

Congratulations! I have had a corvette, mine was older and a money pit but I would still get another one some day but it would be a newer model like yours.

...Watch out where the huskies go
don't you eat that yellow snow...

Musical reference, take a wild guess.

By the way, I am a died in the wool Corvette fan. Never owned one, but wore out 4 Mustangs.

I'd trade a family member for a 1967 427 Stingray, except for my dogs. LOL

B. Cooper, the C5, in my opinion is the best looking. The newer ones are too angular and I donít like the exposed headlights. The C5s are also pretty affordable. One thing I have noticed though is the tone and tenor of the forums. This forum is full of great people and is fun and respectful. I got on the Corvette form and the condescension and snarkiness was palpable. Almost makes me feel a little leery of posting because I donít want to be looked down upon. Here everybody was fun and respectful and I will continue to drop by if no one objects. Probably need to change my avatar.
