Default starter Problem

I left from my home in Nashville Today and drove to Bowling Green Ky. and had a great day at the Nat'l Corvette Museum. left from there and headed home, during the trip my friend that went with me, gave me the kiss of death by talking about how he liked the strong way the car started up and sounded with the flow master exhaust. I stopped at a local winery on the way home for a couple bottles of my wife's favorite wine (Which I figured I better do considering the money I just spent at the Museum Store.) Went back out to the car to head on home, put in the key, turned it on, everything came on, but the motor never made a sound. Checked battery connections, they were good. Brand new battery, everything came on fine, stereo, dash lights, head lights, but nothing from the motor not even a click.

Called a wrecker and hauled it to the garage where it will have to sit till Monday. I'm thinking "starter" but anyone else got any suggestions

nevermind, a guy from another Corvette forum posted up to me. Turns out it was the VATS. The resistor in the key apparently has gone bad. I went to the shop with my other key and it started right up. Just need to get another key I guess.

Glad it turned out well. A key is no big deal.
