She is hot and fun

by on
Vehicle: 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport 2dr Coupe

Once you take her out and go for a ride you will be sold. I have spent my entire adult driving experience (32 years) behind some type of sports car, Triumph, MG, Porsche, BMW, but none of them have the raw testosterone pumping power of a Corvette! The sprit of this machine will enter your bloodstream and course through your veins until you are forced to go out, open the door, fire her up, melt into the seat and connect with the essence of freedom that she brings you. This car is an extension of the adult male image. It’s just too much of a good time! Be careful though, if you’re not ready to buy one, don’t go for a test drive, she will make you crazy.
