If i could figure out how to create a poll I would but in the absence of that:

I'm curious to see what percentage of Vettes get more than the car show/Sunday drive treatment.

What percentage of Vettes actually get DRIVEN??? Drag strips, track days, SCCA races...even local street races?

What do you do with your Vette?

3600 miles in less than 1 month on my '07 (and I'm only in the city where I keep the car about 2-3 days a week) and already almost 1500 miles on my '08(bought it last Wednesday)...It's not my daily driver, all those miles are either back roads through the mountains of western NC or miles on the highway getting to or returning from those areas...drove 65 miles tonight for some wings...HAHA, just a good excuse to run the back roads...

I manage to get in 2 -3 drag runs a year and 3-4 road tracks a year.

The street races are beyond counting....

I've put 11,300 miles on my '95 since I bought it at the end of February 2006. I also put 1100 miles on the DC C6 during Bloomington Gold week this year.

I average close to 150 miles/week in mostly pleasure cruising with my wife.

Also, we're leaving from NW Illinois to Bowling Green in the morning to attend the NCM Anniversary Celebration.

NW IL... you live in the East Dubuque area? I used to live in Rockford, and went to school in the Quad Cities.

My C6 is my daily driver, ~ 8 miles every day, lol. Plus the road trip up to Ohio for the holiday weekend is coming up.

I drive my Supercharged Vette when ever I don't have one or both of my little girls (they are 2 and 5). This is my 3rd Corvette and my girls (so far) have grown up in them. In fact I just picked up my 5 year old today from kindergarten and you could hear all the boys oohing and aweing at the site of it!:D I'm going to be the cool Mom with the Supercharged Red VETTE or at least in my mind I will! :devil:


MINI-VAN.........NEVER!!!!!!!!:thumbsup:

We're in Freeport - moved here from Bloomington in '93.

I take the '95 to work when I have time to go the long way there and back (I'm less than half a mile from the office).

Your kinda close to my area, ever tried Old NC 18? Thats probably my favorite road around here.

Other than that, I try to get vette time at least once a week. Its slightly hard with my schedule sometimes. Im normaly 50-60 hour work weeks, then 3 college classes. I have one day off a week normaly, and when I do, Im in the vette lol
