    Default 19 years old today!!

    Today is the 19th birthday of my 1998 Corvette. It came off the Bowling Green, Kentucky GM assembly line November 3rd 1997. I am fortunate to have the original Factory window sticker and build sheet for this car. Any true Gearhead will tell you those documents are very important for their cars. My Corvette has 96000 miles on it now it still runs as good as a brand new car with great mileage, style, performance and handling.

    Fixvet - congrat's on your 98's B-day

    My 98's 19th B-day was on 1/12 - good to see some of the original owner cars still around.

    Well, another year has passed.....FixVet is now 20 yrs old!! Still a touch under 98,000 miles on the clock. Didn't have any long road trips this year.

    Happy New Year to all!!

    My 2002 Coupe that I bought new, just rolled over 130,000 this weekend. Still looks almost new, runs quiet and gets 29+ mpg on the road. I continually get the "hots" to buy a new one but I still enjoy this one so much. Everything is great but the outside mirror and seat control memory----it has a mind of it's own and needs resetting each time I turn the car off and on. But what a great car.
