Bullitt to GS Corvette

Well, I hope no one will bash me for buying my first ever Corvette and never in a 100 yrs would I have thought this was possible considering how fond I have always been of the mustang but I have turned a new chapter in my life. About 3 mos ago I saw an incredible deal on a GS Corvette and was curious so I decided to go for a test drive.

Damnit! I have now been bitten by the unthinkable. Long story short I traded my Bullitt for a 19 GS Corvette that checks all the boxes and some. I only wished I could have kept the Buliitt as well but that wasn't possible as it is an awesome mustang but coming from the gt350 I felt something was missing from my life and the GS Corvette filled that void end of story. I will check in from time to time to see what is going on. Take care!

I'd say it's good if you can fill a void with a car.

Congrats on the Corvette! I'm sure you enjoyed the BULLITT......but it's not the only great car in the world!


I've had a number of different cars.....enjoyed most of them. But, sometimes I get tired and move on.


The new Corvette is a super car for the money.


If I was younger.....I would buy one.....


Enjoy! Enjoy!!!

Good luck with your new car. I am closet Corvette fan who has wanted one ever since the first ZR1 came out in the C4 generation. I like the GS in the C7 line a lot!

I went from an 01 Bullitt to a 2016 Challenger R/T Plus. Love the 6-Speed. No bashing here!

You'll be back. You have had too many Bullitt just to be able to walk away.

Congratulation. Those are great cars. For me, just doesn't fit the bill any more. Wifey is already talking about trading here 2010 Mustang for a more luxury car. We're getting to the age that getting in and out can be a challenge.

Thanks to all as this was no easy decision but I never thought I would get bitten either.

Jack, you are never too old to own a Corvette! Browse the corvette forum sometime and look at the photos and the rest will speak for itself. Its mind of matter!

I will pop in from time to time. Btw I listed my car cover for sale if anyone is interested as well as a few other items.

I have included a few photos...the lighting really took away from the true color as the metallic flake really pops....Shadow Gray Batmobile

Congrats on the Corvette, they are a great car, I also have a ZR1 sitting beside my 08 Bullitt. I have a strong attachment to both cars as they are great in their own way enjoy, drive the wheels off of it.

No bashing here. Change is good for the soul. I went from Vette to Bullitt. Love both cars. It's a beauty. Have fun.

Off to throw rocks at my '09 Bullitt. (Not really) I'm with others here...reached the age where more luxury, quiet and comfort is appealing. Thinking maybe Lexus next time..if there is a next time.
