Default 1 CF email, 1 Hour, 3 States = NEW 2013 4LT GS Cpe delivery/pics

Last Wednesday I got an email from a Corvette Forum member named Craig in Louisiana. He was seeking a very specific Corvette. He wanted a Velocity Yellow 2013 Grand Sport cpe with Auto transmission, Chrome Wheels, Yellow Stitching and 4LT interior. I ran a Nationwide search in GM's computer system of all Corvettes on the ground and at the plant...ONLY 1 in the entire Country and it was enroute from Bowling Green, KY to a Dealer in Nebraska...as good luck would have it I had that Dealers name and cell number in my cell phone. I placed the call and arranged a dealer purchase from his inventory so I could sell it to the Forum member. 1 day of Fed Ex'ing paperwork back and forth with Craig and the whole plan was set in motion. Pictured below is his new 4LT waiting to be picked up(Plycon Trucking) at that dealer in Nebraska and by next week Craig and his wife will be driving his long sought after Corvette.

Mike, those yellow Corvettes are always hard to come by. Seems like you always have to cross 5 states to find what you want. Only in my case, Mike was the only dealer in the country that had what I wanted. Looks familiar.

Beautiful scheme! Like on all colors I wsih GM would do black calipers, IMO that would look nice with black headlight buckets on a yellow or white car particularly. Either way the yellow stitching/calipers and body look awesome!! Best of luck...

Great job Mike. You are a true professional. And man that yellow stitching just sets off the interior. Very nice, love those new seats.

On the bucket list, but I think I will have to wait to pay off the car first! At least for Le Mans. I didn't win the free trip like you!
