Thinking about trading Camaro for Corvette

Thinking, just thinking....one day, some day, I'll trade my Camaro for a Corvette. I looked at a Corvette Coupe 3LT Monday and went back for a second look yesterday. I left a list of equipment and color options I'm considering with the dealer along with my phone number and email address. Maybe, I'm doing more than just thinking?!

Nothing wrong with a Corvette, but there's something about our Camaro that I just cannot see getting rid of it for.

I might be biased, though. Although we could've long afforded many 'vettes over the years, we kept buying Camaros. If that tells you anything. 'vettes are nice to ogle, but I think the price tag would make me scared to really drive it like it should be driven? I dunno.

But yeah, sounds as you're probably going to be buying by showing that much interest. Great deals right now too.

I test drove a 2LT today. I definitely want a 3LT. The car I drove today has the ebony interior, but I want the grey interior I saw in the 3LT I looked at Monday/Tuesday. I'm still dreaming, trying to piece together what I must have and what I can live without. It's fun shopping. I have a lot to consider before making a switch. I'll keep y'all posted.

I've narrowed down the colors to Jetstream Blue and Blade Silver.

Yeah, I drove from Santee to Charleston in the rain yesterday to look at Jetstream Blue and Supersonic Blue. On a dreary day, the Jetstream Blue POPS! It is so brilliant! The Supersonic Blue looks like the Blue Granite on my husband's Silverado. The truck looks nice, but the Corvette looks blah.
...still dreaming and planning...

if i ever trade in my camaro for a vette, it will be for a Z06 or even ZR-1

i wouldn't trade for the standard or even grand sport.

good things come to those who wait... if you want a vette, save a lil more money and get the Z06.
