Down in FL for a week. Decided it was time to step up to a newer / nicer class of cars for re-sale. Got a 2009 Corvette Convertible ZHZ (That's the yellow and black Hertz rentals) #344 of 375. 40k miles, 6 speed auto, 436 HP, dual mode exhaust, magnetic control suspension, high polish wheels (nicest stock C6 wheels I've seen, short of a ZR1, IMO). I usually only go to the Highline auction in West Palm, but I had never been to Fort Lauderdale so wanted to check it out. Turned out to be an expensive day.
This thing makes the C5 I bought back in the spring seem asthmatic and it makes my '96 Cobra feel like it's powered by a D16 Civic motor.
Build quality is as awful as ever; it is a Corvette and this is something that demands attention with the C7. The apologists can say whatever they want but the fit and finish, build quality, and materials are all second rate at best. But be that as it may, I'm stuck in So.Florida with a yellow cruise missile. I like the power top, and the keyless go system works very well. Highway mileage is superb, and the powertrain is phenomenal.
For the dealers that lurk on here I already have a dummy listing up on OVE with photos to come in a day or so.
