    I had a 1975 Corvette Stingray back in the 90s. I sold it when my daughter was born in 2000. Well, I'm retired now and my daughter is off to college. My wife MADE me by an new Corvette Stingray last night. If any of you have any Corvette knowledge, post it here.

    Never really was a Corvette fan, though there is one that I would take if it presented itself. The 73' Stingray which doesn't have the fastback.

    Congrats on your new car. I've always loved Corvettes, in particular 70s Stingrays, but have never owned one.

    So what you’re saying is you can’t drive 55!!!!

    Congrats what color is it? I had an opportunity to buy a 76 back in the 90’s for less than $5,000 but my parents thought I’d kill myself in it, they were probably right, I have a double lead foot...

    Be careful mijo...:D

    Love the Corvette. I learned to drive stick shift in a brand new '79 Vette, when I was 17.

    The new Stingray is one of the most beautiful cars ever created, IMO. I'm so glad they finally got rid the flat, bland rear end with the big, round taillights.

    This could be the last year for a front engine Corvette, supposed to be going to a mid-engine design for the next model year.

    That looks just like the one I bought except without the blue stipes. I bought an automatic. I need my wife to be able to drive it when I'm drinking. It does have the the paddle shifter for a little fun!

    The mid engine Vette is something I am looking forward to.Several images of it have leaked.

    Chevy has spent years working on a mid engine corvette. It will be the same american muscle, but faster.

    As far as I know, they'll continue to offer a front engine Corvette too.

    That's a beautiful car, brother! Congrats, and after driving truck for the last 34 years, I can honestly say that shifting is overrated.
