Apparently, not everyone gets as excited about getting a new Stingray as we do.
A guy tells us in this Youtube video that he’s going to surprise his girlfriend with a new black on black on black 2014 Corvette Stingray that has just arrived at Peters Chevrolet in Longview, Texas and is being checked out by the crew there to make sure all the nuts and bolts are right on the car.
After he goes to her office and calls her on the phone, the poor fellow has to practically beg her to come out of the office and see the car, and based on her reaction, we’re not sure if she even realizes it’s her car. Her emotion is about as excited as if he had just brought her a vanilla bean frappuccino from Starbucks!
She doesn’t seem to care that she is probably among the first few hundred ordinary folks to drive the new C7.
This is one video that you definitely won’t see in the Chevy marketing folder. For what we consider an outstanding gift, the poor guy does get a hug and a kiss after she gets done with her quick drive around the parking lot.
But we have a feeling he might have gotten more excitement if he had taken her on a trip to Paris or New York City, and it would have been a lot cheaper than the $70,000 he shelled out for this 3LT Z51 Stingray!
But at least she is honest. “I know somebody more excited than I am,” she tells him as they climb out of the car.
Maybe he should have just bought her a Spark and kept the Corvette for himself.
