That's why targeting it towards a younger generation doesn't really make overall sense!! The Vette is an older-mans car most of the time for the reason we all know!! You have to be older to have that kind of disposable cash or don't mind being in debt up to your eyeballs!! Not saying there aren't young people who buy new Vettes, but I'd say there aren't many who can afford one!!
We live in the Chicago area, and I drive our newest corvette daily, year round! Why can't you drive them daily if you choose?

You are free to do as you choose - I don't think the poster said you couldn't. I live up here in NW Illinois, and while I choose to put mine away when it gets cold, I have a friend that drives his every chance he gets.

For me, the choice boils down to the pleasure of the driving experience. When it's snowing or raining, I enjoy the car significantly less, and since I have alternative transportation, I select that.

Fortunately for all of us, we're able to choose when and under what conditions we elect to drive our Corvette. People without Corvettes are destined to drive tin cars all the time.

If energy and enthusiasm were a substitute for experience and expertise, then I could hire my 12 year old to do this job.

Nice post Steve! I just bought a 2013 6-speed manual Outback for a DD in the rain/snow and the Corvette and Viper stay clean in the garage.
