John H’s brand new 2023 C8 Convertible

I am excited to take my 2023 vette out once our snow melts.  I ordered this vehicle in December 2020, so a long wait and now I can only sit in the showroom waiting for April 15. Touch of red around the car including corvette at the rear of the car.

Happy to be part of the club!

John H.

I don’t need you to remind me of my age. I have a bladder to do that for me.

Progress might have been alright once, but it has gone on too long.
