Used to have an '05 C-6.
Wonder4ful car. Convertible.
Best mad was a set of Corsa Sports.

Loved that car but as my back got worse it wasn't practical.

Now it's a 5.0 Mustang. Nowhere near as much fun.

Yeah, I would not consider a Vette as a daily driver - especially as I get older.
The 2013 60th Anniversary Edition GS is purely a "sunny day" car.

Also, planning to keep it bone stock as I spent a lot of $$ on my '03 C5 (under the hood) - kept exterior all stock, only tell tale signs of power mods were the Pod gauges and Borla catback. Sold it back in '12.

Initial reports on the C8 look interesting.

I'm not sure.
It's an awesome looking thing. Very exotic.
But how much?
Corvette has a certain price point for owners.

My Dad was a big time Corvette guy, beginning with the very first one, the 1953.
He had bought an sold so many there's no way to remember them all.
He even had the split window 1963.
Until Chevy dropped their excellent road racing light weight Gran Sport effort, that is.
Like many Corvette enthusiasts, he lost interest after that and switched to Porsche.
My one and only 'Vette was a 1965 convertible.
If I could afford it, the latest new one is a beauty.
A neighbor buys a new one every year.
Maybe he's related to my late Dad.
