Im 18 and get crap for driving a Z28. none of the mid life crisis stuff or anything but everyone assumes that i speed like hell and drive hard all the time b/c i have a (somewhat) fast car. My grandads got an 86 vette and i want him to get a new one. ive got nothing but respect for people who can afford nice cars and actually buy them. Why not put your money to good use. My point i guess is that there always people who try to hate or assume too much. well thats my 2 cents.

Problem is that all I'm hearing is this BS about mid-life crisis, 2nd childhood ,it's not practical, you don't need it,what are you trying to prove, penis compensation ect ect ect

Fact is, I have a DTS and a E-250 for practical car/van and the wife has a new CTS. I'm barraged with this bull$hit by people who either can't afford a super toy or if they could don't have the stones to drive it. I wrote a check for this car, it didn't even make a dent. I worked for the last35 years to be in this position now I just retired and I'm going to enjoy myself.Sounds trite but life is too short. A few of my buddies died recently and I'll be damned if I'm not going to have fun on the way out.

Next mutt, male or female who thinks they have the right to judge me or my actions is going to be wearing thier a$$ for a hat when they walk away from me.Sorry if I bent your ears but I needed to blow this off and I figured you guys would understand
Hi welcome to DC!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't worry. After seeing his Z06 there is no way he has enough poop left for yours! If he invites you to eat at Ruby Tuesday's, don't go!! His long lost cousin might be there and he has the same family problem! They need diapers!

Thanx for all the support men, now feeling as I do, I probably won't shred the next jerk who shoots thier mouth off.

You know, these people are like crabs in a bucket....when one starts to pull himself out, they all try to pull him back down so he's stuck in the same spot as everybody else. Well too late, I crawled out, and now they can wave bye to my Torch Red Corvette a$$ from thier Windstar

Give me a break

When I got mine last year a guy at work called me rich ( I am comfortable but not rich). I told him: Hey, I raised two kids to self support themselves, my house is paid for, I have a two year old pickup paid for. I have no debt." Then I asked him: Do you have little kids at home, do you have a house payment, do you have a car payment." He answered yes to all three. I said: "I rest my case." "I couldn't afford one when I was your age either."

I am 56 and when I tried to think of reasons why I shouldn't get it my wife told me I had wanted another Vette all my life and now that we were out of debt and had no other responsibilities that I needed to do it before I retired or before I got so old I couldn't get in it (will never happen).

Enjoy your Vette. Chalk their comments off to either ignorance or envy.

And my canned response whenever anyone tells me a C5 isn't practical is:

"My car averages 20 mpg, and gets 30+ when cruising at 78mph...."


Those are pretty good commuter car averages, as far as I'm concerned.

"Yep, that puts me over the top, thanks!!! I just won the microwave AND trip to Hawaii!!!"

After 37yrs. of listening to that, I'm a cranky old bastard.

Hey RSCAR, just invite 'em to perform an unnatural act upon themselves next time, then bury 'em in blue tire smoke.

Yeah, mixing immaturity with maturity still feels good!
