Nice. I like a clean C4. Impressed that yours has the 6 speed.

Be prepared for the onslaught of mullet and gold chain jokes.

I really like the HUD on my Coupe - the cornering speeds are so insane you really never want to take your eyes off the road. These later cars are surprisingly comfortable for longer road trips, a Viper feels like piece of farm equipment in comparison last time I drove one. C5s really need an cat back exhaust; 40 - 50 hp gain and now your motor can talk to you rather than sound like a quiet vacuum cleaner. Parts prices are so cheap compared to some of the imports.

Are you guys running front license plates? These cars look so much better without one.

Colorado requires a front plate.

My dealer told me they do not put any dealership badges, decals, etc on any new Corvette - and won't mount the front plate holder unless you request it.
(they leave it up to you to abide by that law)

The C7 has an optional "aero" front plate mount that is sleek and minimizes the ugly that a front plate brings to such a beautiful car.
Tucks in the grill and follows the lines

Ya, I know it's Colorado law but I just can't get myself to mount it and uglify the front end, the C5 had the nice insert as standard equipment - instead I carry it and can lay it on the dash if stopped...but officer there are no mounting screw holes.....but IMO if you go fast enough oncoming pigs won't have time to notice especially if they're munching on donuts and coffee

How about if I come over and give you a few free Vette driving lessons?

I'm only 58, so I'm not old enough to own a Corvette yet.
