My kids call it "The Bullet."
This is a Corvette, and it will be crystal clear to you why so many call it "The American Dream".
A few details about the car:
> The car has a Bluetooth system for you to pair your phone and via Bluetooth to make and receive calls. There is an USB or aux option too, for any less "tech savy" folks like me out there.
> All Leather interior (Black) - with sport Corvette wheels.
> I just added a steering wheel cover with matching seat covers and floor mats.
> Climate control (set the temperature, sit back and relax)
> Power Seats (driver and passenger)
> Manual (6 speed) - 430 Horsepower, 6.2L V8 with custom exhaust and cruise control.
> Removable top with Vertical Doors Inc. ZLR doors - Very Cool!
> ABS system for better breaking and Traction Control.
> ~ 26 mpg highway (not bad for a sports car)
All in all a great handling car with some unique features you will love as I do.
> Here are some helpful hints for operating the car:
The top comes off with one rear latch and two front latches and mounts on two hooks in the trunk - I'll show you before you leave. There is a temp light weight cover for the top while you park to keep leaves & birds out when the targa top is off.
The automatic windows are raised by pressing unlock-unlock-lock on the remote less than a second apart after you've parked and shut the doors.
The automatic windows are lowered by pressing unlock-unlock-unlock on the remote less than a second apart.
It is always best to have the windows down when operating the doors but they don't have to be. Just be careful not to hit your head if you don't or can't roll down the windows.
The cruise control is operated by pushing in on the end of the turn signal arm. There is a toggle near the end of the turn signal arm to adjust speed. I added a photo for reference.
The car is started by pressing the top large round circle part of the starting switch. The lower left part is pressed to turn the car off and the lower right is pressed to have the aux power on to operate radio and such while car is off. Make sure the lower left light on the switch is red when leaving the car. I am adding a photo of the switch for reference.
The lights are set to operate automatically so they will come on when you need them and go off when you don't as long as you don't change them.
I'll be sure to add more tips as questions come up.
Also gas is 91 premium only.
Thank you for you interest in sharing my car and if this works out well, I hope to add other interesting cars in the future. A Mustang GT500 and or Mini Cooper could be fun. (with some surprise custom features like on "the Bullet")
I'm open to your suggestions too. Let's have fun with this car sharing stuff!
