The wife says: Go get a Vette if you want one. What to do?
So my 60th is quickly approaching. This morning over breakfast at Angelos Diner she says. "You have always wanted a Corvette, so for your birthday go get yourself one and I will make up the difference in the payment."

Wow. The payment was never a problem for me I just didn't think spending almost (60%) as much as a small house here in South Jersey would be a prudent move for a toy.

I already had my dream Vette picked out:

A Torch Red 1LT C7 Stingray with:
  • M7
  • Z51
  • Black Wheels
  • NPP
  • MR
  • Red Seats

I do love (in the car sense) my 1LE. And trading/selling a 6 month old car would really be a stupid move.

What to do? What would you do?

Edit: Dropped the Nav. I have come to the conclusion the NAV is an anachronism when built into a car. Better cheaper solutions out there. Learn from the young. But just to seem old I still carry some cash.

Life's short. Get want you want (if it's personally affordable).

Oh and Key West is nasty.

What do you want?

You ain't lying about housing costs, I'm from there (May Landing, etc).

Trade me your 1LE straight up, and trade in my 1SS for the new 'Vette. :)

Where at in South Jersey? My girlfriend is from Cherry Hill.

I just recently came from a C6 Z06 with all the bells and whistles. It was a perfect car in every way. Thing is, I just get bored with anything over time. So if you want to try a vette, I doubt you would ever be sorry. The C7's are just so cool!

The only drawback for me was, when you step up to a vette is the cost. They are wonderful cars but they arent cheap. Honestly I think I get hassled by the law alot more readily in the camaro, than I did in the vette.

Keep the camaro and get the Vette. She didn't explicitly say to get rid of the camaro did she haha

Only you can decide!

Drive the 1LE and wait for the C7 Z06 and then trade in the 1LE
