40th Anniversary Edition

Phil Grierson

I have liked Corvettes since my teen years back in the 60's, but I never thought I would own one. Over the years, I have kept an eye out for the perfect one. Unfortunately, I could never afford one that I wanted to buy.

This year, I was looking over the inventory at Exotic Motors here in Tarpon Springs, FL and found a 40th edition (C4) Corvette in extremely nice condition and at a price of less than $10,000. I thought it must be too good to be true. I sent them several emails before finally going to take a look at it in person. When I got there I found the car in near showroom condition. The salesman said they had too many cars on the lot and were letting some go at low prices.

I was able to get the car checked out in their shop, had a few adjustments done and bought the car for only $7900. The credit union I financed it at said they wanted a certified appraisal done on the car. It was done a few days later and came back appraised at $18,000. Needless to say I have been more than happy. It has the 6 speed manual transmission, 5.7 liter 350 engine. Runs great and looks excellent. I did have to replace the brakes master cycler and power booster recently due to a leak in the master cylinder.

Now I am getting ready to take it to a few local car shows and who knows what from there. My wife always wanted a Corvette too, but she passed away in June 2015 before ever getting one. She may be looking down on me now and thinking, sure, now he has one. LOL
