About “Black Magic”

Ever since I was a little girl working with my Dad on his 1967 big block Corvette Roadster, I dreamed of the day when I would have my own Corvette. Then, when I was 7, we had a bad house fire, and the garage was completely destroyed... with the Corvette still inside. Back then, I wanted a car just like Dad's, but as time went by I decided that I wanted to go my own way, to get a newer car that I wouldn't be afraid to drive regularly the way it was meant to be driven. Let's face it, if I had a '67 big block Roadster, I couldn't very well drive it like a car. It would just be worth too much.

I recently heard about this car from a friend at work and went to check it out last Friday. I had driven a couple of C5 and C6 Corvettes and liked the feel of the cars, so I knew pretty much what to expect. I wasn't disappointed. I loved it.I always imagined myself with a red Vette, but black is just fine with me, thank you very much! I finally have the car I've wanted for over 15 years!

About “FireCracker”

Just brought this bird home Jan 2010. Check out the photos of the inside! It is as nice as the outside! She is originally a California car. 2nd owner was in Atlanta and had her shipped in 2004. He stored her and never drove her much....Just decided to sell her on a whim and put her on Craigslist. Luckily, spotted the ad and we went down and was shocked at how well she looked. Supposedly all original including the paint. What a find!!!
