Default Where to rent a corvette

Hello...this may seem like a crazy question, but I was hoping there was someplace in or w/in 30 miles or so of Tampa where I could rent a corvette for one day.

Its my Husband's 30th birthday this November and I thought this would be an awesome surprise since it will be quite a few years until he gets to own one.

Thanks for the help!

I believe there was a place on Gulf to bay blvd in clearwater that had exotics to rent at one time. Not sure if its still there though....maybe someone else will know. I don't travel up there all that often.

There's also a place in S. Pasadena just before you hit the Corey Causeway in Pinellas County (across from the hospital) that has exotic rentals. I'll see if I can get you a name next time I'm that way. It's on 66th Street which is also S. Pasadena ave.

Does she realize what sort of trouble she is getting herself into? Once he drives the vette, he won't be able to rest till he owns one...... Every Corvette is a carrier of the "YOU WANT ONE" virus....
