OK its been a while but the Mrs has been bugging to upgrade. I know that odd but I need to keep her happy and me to. I have started the search for a 2017-2019 grand sport. I got the OK providing it a convertible. do you all realize there is not many corvettes sitting on lots for sale in NE - PA? I will keep you all in tune as our search continues. We will be trading in our 2009 or 1984 pending the deals.

Sounds very exciting Mike! Keep us in the loop.

I have to wait until my friend gets his new 2021 sometime this winter before I can buy his 2014.

Hey Scott isn't it time for you to upgrade too?

Yes sir but not the car! LOL! We are kicking around the idea of a new home. We'd love a new vette but I'm still madly in love with mine and Diane is still in love with hers! We have no proper place to park yet another car!  Roll Eyes  yet . . .

Hey Scott... after that "event" when you were moving your daughter, I thought you might not want to move again. LOL  Grin

That's exactly what was holding me back from getting the 2014, selling our old home and buying our new home. Fortunately the chinese virus held up my friend getting his new 2021, so he won't be able to sell his 2014 Corvette until this coming winter, so I'm in luck still to get it. I have first dibs.

Selling and buying a home is a MAJOR undertaking and I hope it's the last time for me! We love our new place and there is a spot in the double car garage waiting for a Corvette in the future! Here are some pics of our new place:

well we pulled the trigger and bought something out of our original thought plan.
We purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra SLT crew cab. My 2002 Dodge HO Cummins 6 speed served me well from 2001 when purchased. we went to look at a Grand Sport last weekend and saw this truck and wow.... what a deal we got. if I was to keep my dodge it was in the need of extensive body work though the engine only had 185,000 miles on it and just getting broke in. our 2018 GMC has as many options as a Denali. what luxury it is to drive at only 31,000 miles. I am very happy with the truck and will wait to trade up on a new vette over the next 3 years.
