2009 Final Thoughts

Today, 2009 will come to an end. We were happy to serve every single Corvette owner near and far. We thank you for your business.

The Z06 was still going strong this year and was very difficult for the dealership to keep the inventory stocked! We had customers drive in from as far as Florida and even shipped some vettes to other states! Why so far? Because we offer substantial discounts on all our vettes and our service is top notch.

We plan to continue our great discounts and service going forward into 2010 and hope that you can come along for the ride!

To close out the year here are a few Corvette fun facts!

1953 – First generation (C1) production begins. 300 produced. Base price $3,498. Polo white with red interior and black top is only color combination; Options were interior door handles; “clip in” side curtains were a substitute for roll-up windows.
