while I can easily see how you might get that idea ,....or the related idea that corvettes tend to be driven by 20-28 year old hot gals with well off sugar daddys,looking for arm candy and other benefits or middle age guys that appreciate cars (LIKE MOST OF MY FRIENDS) that could not afford them when they were younger, like one of my other friends often says. Id point out that many of my friends and I have almost always owned, at least one older corvette, since we were in our 20s and got jobs, in fact in several cases, the only major reason we felt having a job, or a good education, in our teens was,necessary,was it was rather obvious, it was required too afford owning a corvette!
corvette's that we purchased used at a significant discount, usually after they were 6-18 year old and fully enjoy working on them, and restoring them, or modifying them, once the price drops to a level the average working guy can afford.
Ive owned a 1959,1968, 1976,1992,and still own a 1985 and 1996 corvette's, and not one was purchased new, and yeah Ive paid good money for corvettes that were a few year old when I purchased them, and regret passing up on several bargains in the past. yes Ive also owned a good selection of the muscle cars , but theres something about corvettes, especially really well restored or corvettes with impressive power train upgrades that seems to keep grabbing my attention.

I love Corvettes too Grumpy but Chevy LUV is partly correct.
Do to my own experience on CFC4 & DC there are many Dicks with Corvettes.
To me a Corvette is a race machine 1st.

Back to Mr. Pontiac here myself in 2015.

Maybe play with the 1987 Corvette Convertible later in fall 2015.
It can sit. Ok with that.
