    He originally said he was getting it Yellow, which would have been teh hotness, but I really like the Charcoal grey.

    Yea, that's what I told him. He said Charcoal grey, and I was thinking "great (rollingeyes)", but hot damn, I saw it and way surprised at how nice it looked.

    I like the grey > yellow

    So how do you decide if someone's going through a midlife crisis or has just been a car nut that can finally afford something like a Corvette when he gets to middle age? I would definitely fall into the latter (smaller) group.

    Ah, ok. Mid-life for me will just be when I have more money and the ability to buy stuff like this... but then again, mid-life in my family would be closer to 50, so I think I'll be ok.
