There are some things in life, things you have the opportunity to experience, that can change your perspective and desires. When you first hit that age where you notice girls and become infatuated with your first love, for example. Or the day your first child is born and you know above all else that because of you this beautiful baby has a life. I ran into one of these life changing situations the other day, where I know, no matter what I do, I can never go back.
I had the opportunity, thanks to my friends at Burnout Radio and GM, to experience the wrath of the all new Corvette Grand Sport. This may seem like an insignificant opportunity compared to love and fathering a child, yet it was just as life altering. Although I have driven and been around Corvettes before in my life, there has always been nagging details that prevented the car from being a great sports car. It has had the power since the introduction of the LS motors and the C5 corvettes, and has always had the looks. But this Grand Sport was different. It’s not just the power, but the way it’s put to the road. It’s not just the looks, but the way the looks make you feel. The interior of the car is finally a nice place to be and when the RPM’s rise above 3500 and the butterfly valve in the exhaust open up, the noise sends thrills up your spine.
Being in and around this car all day only begs one last question. How can I live the rest of my life without this car?
