The Story

I always wanted a c5 and was dollars away from being able to afford one as a toy, then Covid hit and I couldn't justify a toy. Coming out of Covid prices were still sky high for these things, so I bought a 2013 Genesis coupe. I loved it, but it wasn't what I really wanted. My heart yearned for a yellow FRC C5. Then a year later I happened to be on my way to Kansas City and saw a gorgeous yellow C5 z06 sitting at a dealer on the side of the highway. I left with a c5 instead of a a genesis and have been loving it since.
