Outstanding experience! I told them what I wanted to pay and they worked very hard to make that reality! The in store experience was also enjoyable and fast! Worth the mile drive to get a unique car. Chris was very easy to work with. Quick response. Seems to have quality cars on his lot. We did purchase a vehicle from him and would consider purchasing from here again. Good price! It's just 5, out of my budget and I will have to take a long ride to pick it up in which not that bad.

Gino was so nice and helpful and Lee made the sale so easy! I will definitely get my next car or truck from them. Best experience ever! Our salesman went above and beyond. He was patient and knowledgeable. Paper prepared accurately and very quickly. Car prepared for delivery very quickly and complete.

Not too bad. The car was very clean but not quite as professional. The driver side wheel well was missing a piece, no owners manual, but overall a good experience.

The worst car buying experience I've ever had. Stay far far away from this dealer. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. They are clueless when it comes to cars. Received good follow up and communication during the buying process. Both Junior and Sam were great to deal with. Thank you. This was worth the 5 hr drive to pickup car. Finance was ready early in the morning for a quick turnaround It was a 7 hour drive to and from Vegas Very friendly.

One downside is they did not fill the gas tank at delivery. Really good to see the price adjustment. Although I'm not sure what drove their decision a few days later but it put the vehicle within purchasing range. Arranged a test drive, bought the vehicle, and was home within 2 hours!! Great experience. I spoke to Jackie at Hendrix Motors. She was very helpful and professional.

Even though I did not buy a car from them, I will never forget how pleasant and helpful she was! I requested one thing, if the truck had heated seats and I get emails wanting to talk to me concerning my vehicle needs.

They did not answer a simple question but instead was an automatic turnoff with a barrage of questions. This company is off my list. The seller was loud and brash and promised to call me back on a negotiated deal after claiming the computers were down. He never called back. I bougbt elsewhere.

Images of the original seven Mercury astronauts in their open-top Corvettes zooming along Florida's straightaways in the s helped seal the deal for a car as American as apple pie.

For nearly 60 years, the Corvette has provided a rocket-like ride right here on Planet Earth and has remained practically in a class by itself, which isn't surprising, since that's how it started out. When GM created the Corvette in the early s, the automaker was the largest company in the U.

Enter the Corvette, the brainchild of legendary GM designer Haley Earl, who envisioned a two-seat open sports car, something GM had never built before.

He reportedly took the name from a type of small, maneuverable ship, which has its roots in the Age of Sail. Since its introduction, the Corvette has been in almost continual production at GM, making it one of the longest-running automotive marques still available.

And for most of that time, the Corvette has retained its same basic sport-oriented shape and style, although exterior, interior, and performance improvements have pushed it solidly into the 21st century, where it continues to treat the world's highways like its own personal playground. For , the Corvette remains a two-seat, rear-wheel-drive sports car and makes no apologies for its power and performance, though admittedly the engines have been tweaked for optimal fuel efficiency.

A new Limited Edition Carbon Z06 Corvette, which debuts in , comes tricked out with just about every cutting-edge component imaginable, including a new Z07 Performance Package, which adds Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires, and unique staggered wheels inch wheels in the front, inch in the rear. It also comes equipped with a CFZ Carbon Fiber Package, which adds rocker extensions, a front splitter, and a full-width rear spoiler.

Chevy offers the Corvette in a wide range of configurations and trim levels for A hp, 6. Although it's powered by the same engine, it offers a wider body, larger brakes, a sport-tuned suspension, unique wheels, and an available Magnetic Selective Ride Control feature, which stiffens the suspension at the press of a button.

The 6. The Z06, which slots in above the Grand Sport, pumps up the power with a hp, 7. The big 7. At the top of the heap, the famed ZR1 lays claim to the title of the Ultimate Corvette, thanks to its hp, 6. Not surprisingly, critics rave about the current version of the Corvette, citing its incredible performance, sports-car handling, long list of attractive add-ons, and relatively decent fuel economy as positive points.

Some find the 'Vette's interior somewhat lacking when compared to competitors from BMW, Mercedes, Audi, and Lotus, but there's no doubt the Corvette remains very much an American legend, with equally legendary performance and handling. Well into its sixth generation, the Corvette could use a next-generation refresh, and GM has reportedly been planning one for several years. Discussions reportedly have centered on a change in configuration from a front-engine design to a mid- or rear-engine layout, but all recent signs point to the Corvette carrying forth its current front-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout, as well as essentially the same exterior shape, well into the future.

Though groundbreaking on the outside, under its fiberglass skin the first-generation Corvette called the C1 was fairly unimpressive. The original Corvette rode on a chassis borrowed from GM's sedans, such as the Bonneville, Bel Air, and Impala, and for this reason is often called the "solid-axle" Corvette because of its rear drivetrain and suspension.

Handling was improved by sliding the cabin back in the chassis, which redistributed weight, and adding tighter, more responsive steering. Power came from a hp, cubic-inch six-cylinder, which mated to a new two-speed automatic Powerglide transmission.

While the car handled well, especially in tight corners, performance was sorely lacking, according to early testers. In the first year of production, because of a late start, only Polo White Corvette convertibles came off the automaker's assembly line in Flint, Michigan.

Those vehicles remain highly coveted today. The slow start was due in part to GM's use of fiberglass for the first time for a production-model automotive body. The fiberglass body was produced in 46 pieces by a company in Ohio and hand-assembled at the plant, resulting in a slow process.

Original exterior design elements included round headlights, subtle tailfins, and a unique shark-teeth chrome grille. For , production was moved to St.

Louis, and additional exterior colors were added as GM worked out the bugs with the fiberglass body. Sales were somewhat sluggish due in part to the Corvette's lackluster powerplant. A new hp, cubic-inch V8, introduced in , helped jolt sales, but an exterior redesign in made the Corvette legendary.

A new chrome grille, concave sides, and a sculpted hood, as well as the tapering rear end minus the tailfins, gave the Corvette a much sportier appearance.

Power was pumped up to hp, and for the first time Chevy offered the Corvette with an optional removable hardtop. Horsepower continued to increase through the late s, and Chevy added a number of new transmissions, including a four-speed manual transmission in An extensive restyling in included new quad headlights and an updated interior with a new steering wheel, dashboard, and instrument gauges.

By , the Corvette's V8 engines put out as much as hp. Another exterior redesign in gave the Corvette a "duck tail" rear end with four round taillights. A second-generation Corvette, also called the C2 or "mid-years" generation, debuted in and lasted until It's considered by many to be the most attractive Corvette ever built. Drawing its design inspiration in part from the Jaguar E-Type, as well as reportedly from a mako shark, the new Corvette adopted the Sting Ray name, which perfectly described its streamlined shape, low cabin, and tapering tail, accented by hidden headlights, non-functioning hood vents, and a split rear window.

The second-generation Corvette sat on a new ladder-style chassis with a shortened by 4 inches wheelbase and came equipped with an independent rear suspension for the first time. A choice of cubic-inch V8s generated up to hp, which increased to hp in , while a cubic-inch L78 V8, which debuted in '65, put out hp. However, it remained for only a year, and was gone by ' In , Chevy upped the power quotient even more with the introduction of the limited-quantity, cubic-inch L88 V8, which reportedly delivered around hp.

The Corvette received another makeover in , resulting in the C3 or Mako Shark generation. Building on the previous generation's design, the third-generation Corvette displayed more pronounced wheel flares, which gave it an overall more muscular look. It rode on the same platform as the previous generation, and came in coupe and convertible trims.
