The seller:

My name is C. Van Tune. I am the former Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend Magazine, and host of the former ESPN TV shows "Road Trip" and "Drive”.

I have owned this gorgeous and great driving Corvette for 17 years. It was prominently featured in the opening credits of the "Road Trip" TV series for four seasons, and was in a "new vs classic Corvette comparison test" against a Corvette Z06 on the ESPN TV series "Drive”.

The ESPN videos are viewable by copying and pasting the links below.

I am a lifelong Corvette lover, and have owned several very nice classic Vettes. This car is one of my all-time favorites because:
