    Yes. To the topic. Wow...what a beauty! I had a 1996 Corvette, a white one, and I thought I was all that. (Not really...you know what I mean.) My husband traded it in for a blue pickup truck when we moved mountainside, and I put a curse on it and it was gone in a week with technical issues. Never got the Corvette back, but the memories are sweet.

    I thought my husband's Challenger was pretty sweet for a fast but affordable car. When we are millionaires I should tell him about that one lol!! (Though knowing my husband he will already know)

    Even as a non-gearhead, I watch "Top Gear" and I had to like this car. I admit, though, it might look a bit out-of-place in my driveway. OTOH, it could zip me to work in about a minute-and-a-half. :)
