My Impression: No matter how we look at it, a Corvette is a Corvette!

The likes and dislikes have been explained. I reviewed and others will have theirs. Some like Big _itts and some small so take the info for what its worth. Remember Vett's were almost canned in the first place and now the name Sting-Ray is back!
