When I was five years old. I rode in a 65 coupe. From then on I was hooked.
Well among other reasons, mainly because when ya see a camero or mustang goin down the road ya wonder "Is it a V-8 car or just a V-6er" but when ya see a Vette goin down the road ya know it has a V-8 and its FAST!!
I have always liked Corvettes, my father turned me onto them when I was a kid. What ended up sticking with me and why, over all other cars I wanted a Corvette, was kind of what Corvette has stood for. Corvette has always been, world beating performance for half the price or less. So I saved my money for 10 years growing up and finally got my 2010 Corvette, and to get a car as fast as my $36k Vette, you have to spend at least $60K fo a ZL1 or GT500 or $90K+ for something made outside the US. Can't beat that.
It's the best looking car on the road. It's fast and a blast to drive! Life is too short to drive boring cars!
Bought my first one in 1985 and loved it so much I bought 2 more. Nothing drives like a Vette.
Looks great Squeak
We owned a motel on Daytona Beach , tired of all our Fords turning into a shovel full of rust
Back in the early 60's my father had a used car lot , the guy next door owned a Dunlop tire shop , he was a bit of a player , bought a new 63 vette , convertible , blue with white interior , I was hooked , then our neighbor bought a white split window , he had 8 kids , took them all for a ride at the same time ! that might be why he was having differential trouble LOL
There is nothing like owning an American icon. The respect you get when owning a Vette early or late model...people are just fascinated with the word Corvette. They are nothing short of Badass! To me the word Corvette means Badass ride! Just the other day I did a little shopping and parked my ZR1 way out away from others sideways... and saw a group of our Military personnel walking towards me as I was entering the store and overheard one them say "check out that Vette" what they were saying was "Badass Vette. That is why!...Oh and I love the Chevy's 427cid engines...its my favorite. Thanks!
Always loved them. Had a 1972 ,purchased in 1976, drove it for 7 years,but had to sell it because of a growing family. I told myself I would someday get another. After retiring last year I looked for another and found a pristine 2003 anniversary edition with low miles and scooped it up.Handles great ,no regrets
