I'm glad you read my blog

But the mileage posted was actual, and the number in the blog is an error. This is a photo of the NY inspection sticker on the window - note mileage:



Since the car would not be legal to drive without a valid inspection, it's logical to conclude the error on my blog. I'm not writing for the Encyclopedia Britannica, it's just a personal blog site man. As for the two-day error on the car's delivery - are you really serious that this is such an issue? I'm pretty sure it's the 24th, though I would be glad to make the corrections on my blog for you. LOL!

Is that what you mean by "coming clean"?

You must have lot of patience to keep such a car untouched, even if you were under age.

Any way! its never too late. Unleash the beast.

Could you please come clean here? or maybe your name is Greg Terzian and you felt like posting on an Indian forum just randomly. Maybe you forgot the date you bought the car and the milage so far.
Tell us, we'll forgive you!

Cheers

FYI: I chose to leave out the 'mom and dad' story in my blog at the time of writing. Not sure what else you think is going on, maybe it's a secret conspiracy.

I guess you think I bought the car when it was new? I could show you that I certainly was not old enough to drive in 1989. My blog merely states that I remember when the car was ordered and when it was delivered, I never said I ordered it or drove it - please re-read the quote in your post or my blog.

Anyway, as mentioned, the mileage was an error on my blog. Remember that I only very recently started working on the car. I'll be glad to post a photo of the odometer if you would like

Greg

Looks like Mr. Vert1go has too much time on his hands courtesy the recession. Dude, go get a job and a life.
Nice stolen pics though.

Huh? I have a job, what do you mean? People asked why the car was not used, and I told them, otherwise I saw no need to discuss that either here or on my blog. This post was about this car, not my father. Stolen photos? Huh???

I'll make you a deal Roy, you tell me exactly what photo you would like, and I'll go take it for you right now . Just name it. Jeez.

Here's a photo of the RPO ID tag on my Corvette. This lists all factory options as well as standard equipment. All GM cars include this ID tag.

Taking a closer look at the pics on the blog and the ones uploaded here, I see they are not the same. For example, in the first pic in the blog, you see a blue trash can and a SUV passing by. In the pic uploaded here, they're missing. Also, the angle of the shot is different. The interior pics are different - taken outdoors and indoors. The instrument panel pic is the same though. However, the location and the car itself seem the same in both the set of pics. AND, the pics uploaded here are NOT available on the blog.

It could be that a different set of pics of the same car are uploaded here.

Nice video Greg, and a beautiful car you have got there.
You will have to forgive the scepticism, or best ignore it. It is not everyday that a 20 year old beauty comes up here and that too with such low mileage.
You really seem to think that the car is dusty. LOL. You should see the condition of cars in India.
Congrats and make sure that you get your beauty running properly.

ps: Thanks a lot for sharing. Happy driving.

Naah, its okay. we have heaps of fakers show up here on this forum.
Just checked your blog again though I cant see the video at work, the whole effort seems legit!

Plus I got loads to do except sit here and research the validity of your car!

Hmmm......just saw your video. I must now wipe the egg off my face as it seems that you are indeed Greg Terzian.
How about a photo of you holding a placard that says 'I posted pics of my Corvette on TBHP and got called a faker'.
Nice car, and don't let my initial skepticism stop you from posting further pics of this fabulous machine.

HAHA!

I must say you have some patience/ tolerance. First leaving a car untouched for so many years, then actually posting that picture in good spirit!

If it's not too much to ask, what other car(s) you have, that might explain how could you afford to ignore this red hot car.
