Digital Corvettes is a Good looking web site. I am 66 years old but still love my Corvette which was my daily driver until I retired. 86000 mi so far. I have owned the Car for 6 years now and other than replacing the Headlight motors and normal service it has been stone reliable. Modified and maintained by me. I ran the Corvette Challenge drags for 2 seasons where it has turned a 13.22 with stock rear and A4. Gets 27 MPG on Highway. I have been in several shows with it the old guys are suprised it looks so good in spite of the mileage. They always say: "My Corvette is the same year and I only have 17000 miles on it" ,my reply: "are you saving it for your wife's new husband". Oh well,I just pop in a Thurogood or Skynerd CD and think about the good old days when I was street racing the old Hemi. I may be 66 but am sure as hell not an old fart yet. http://home.att.net/~sy13/corvetteogc5.html

You aren't the only "old fart" on here. I'll be 61 this year and got my first Vette five years ago. Some of us just take a little longer to get our dream. Welcome to the forum. Nice looking ride and a real sweet dog. :cheers:

You give all of us up and coming "old farts" encouragement and excitment in knowing that just because you hit 60, it's no reason to slow down! I just loved your reply about what are they saving it for!!! :rolling: That's one for the books!! Keep rockin with Thurogood and Skynerd and stay young!!! :partyon: Oh, and welcome to DC!!!! :laughing:
