I was finally able to find and purchase my dream car.

1993 40th Anniversary Edition Corvette Convertible.
Its a pretty rare car and even more rare that's its in great condition. I decided to sell the Vision as i haven't been riding it as much and it feels like a chore to ride, and that's not a good place to be mentally when riding.

This baby is 40, just like me LOL. No seriously i have wanted one ever since the release in 93, I have always had a love for Vettes, being the true American Muscle car, always in a class by its self, well after a long search i was able to pick up this gem.

It has every service record since it was new, and for the last 10 years she has only had 16k miles added.

iirc, for a long time, automatic in any car was an add in the nada for every car but the corvette. it was a deduct for it.

nice car mike.. when does the paxton go on to give it the nuts that gm left out??? :)

Ford and a Chevy in the garage interesting :-P

I wish it had the 6 speed but seeing how only 2043 40th Convertabiles were even built, imagine how hard it is to find the 6speed? LOL

Also this is more rare due to the fact this one has Every option on the list.

Mark its Chevy and VW in the garage. Ford sits outside LOL. But i know what ya mean man. I am just not a fan of the Mustang, i have respect for the car but its not for me.

The real interesting part will be in a couple months when fall comes and the rain starts, and Bestia returns to the garage for her winters sleep LOL.

I will say though the Auto in this car, <700R4> is very different then the one in my 91 Trans Am i owned. It shifts a lot firmer but that is just a servo thats different in the two transmissions. The computer in the car upshifts it really soon, but it only takes 35% throttle to downshift to lower gears.

So fare milage is showing an average of 22 which is pretty nice. We will see once its time to fill her up LOL.

I got the thumbs up from a 600RR yesterday, i was going from the 26 to 217 ramp. One of them big circles that say 25mph.

I was doing 60 all the way around it, 600RR was on the inside lane laid all the way down as i past him, once we got to the straight away he flew past me with a big thumbs up LOL

Nice looking ride! I remember drooling over those when they were new (yes I am old)

Threw in a couple pics of my old vette, pretty stock except the 405 hp small block, EFI, Tremec 5-spd, suspension and rims and rubber. Just finished putting in a new leather interior along with new carpet.

Sounds like after boating season, the wife has to park outside??
