On a classic car forum, a new poster was causing quite a stir. He claimed to have bought a Corvette convertible, but his observations about the vehicle didn’t quite add up.

At CorvetteForum, more than 420,000 members regularly log on to debate and discuss everything there is to know about Corvettes. And for a website that often shares photographs and advice relating to renovations and restorations, at first Pvirg’s post appeared to be nothing special.
