I live about 20 minutes from Zip Corvette, and have been there many times and have spent a lot of money there on my C5. My sister had a 1968 C3 327, and bought a fair amount of parts from them as well (sold it on BringATrailer).

I had this '72 from '07 or '08 until '14. 406CI/425 HP. It ran good and was a fun car! No AC forced a sale before moving to Florida...

Your purchase of the Silver C5 once you were in Florida got me to purchase an 05 roadster. I have put 70k miles on it in the last 3 years. It is now my DD with 165k. They are great vehicles with minimal problems and dependable as the day is long. F
or what a C5/C6 is going for these days I think I will keep it as my daily for a few more years. I am averaging 24 mpg at 80 mph on the interstate.

20 years ago a friend had a 69 or 70 w 454- not sure if stock or not- Sitting at an intersection he said watch this- he nailed it- did a 360 before i even knew what hit us.
We just went home lol. Might have been some Drinking going on that day. Fun rides.

TI ignition and headrests! Pretty cool options. Congrats on a great platform. 390HP, you’ll like not having to adjust the valves often. Way cool!!

Ya, some guys on the Corvette forums said it was a nicely optioned car, the last item on the build sheet is an alarm, the heads are done, taking the block to the machine shop this morning, thinking of going full roller instead of flat tappet for a cam choice.
