I am now officially a corvette owner.....finally. I bought a 2004 C5 last week, graphite metallic with manual 6spd. 31,000 miles. When the C5 came out in 1997 I wanted one bad, IMHO the best looking american car in years. I drove MANY C4 corvettes years ago when I worked for a car dealer, fun job, but I had never driven a C5 untill the test drive of this car. So far I have driven 300 miles, :thumbsup3:. I can't wait for nicer weather.

Well, so far it has just been sitting in the garage. Too busy working and its been raining non stop for days.... Maybe later this week it will dry out and I can actually get to know it better. I will probably change a few things on the car eventually but for now I just want to drive. This car is a big step up for me, my previous "toy" was a '94 Mustang 5.0.....really nice car with several mods. done to it. I was kind of sad to see the old horse go, but the more I look at the vette the less I miss the horse. :thumbsup3: Later.....

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I noticed when I was driving my vette home after purchase that a couple vette drivers gave me the peace sign when I pasted them......I assume this was "V" for vette. Is this normal for fellow vette owners? or do I look so cool driving my vette that people just want to say HI. :seeya:

Yes, actually it does have an extended warranty, 4 years. It was a certified used car on a chevy lot. I normally work on my own cars, I have for the past 20 years, but if anything goes wrong with this car its going straight to the dealer. :woowoo:

Ah, the "corvette wave". I think I discovered it on the drive home after I bought my first vette. I get the wave from C5's and C6's mostly. C4's not so much. C1, C2, C3 get waves from everyone.
