I should probably say that most Corvette owners aren't the d-bag crowd, but the d-bag crowd does gravitate towards Corvettes. It wasn't my intention to offend, but rather poke fun. I'm glad we're all cool with that.
I've been really interested in Corvettes, but then I talk with owners and decide I don't want the headache. I daily a 2006 Mustang GT (heated seats weren't available until '07), and it's been really reliable.
I love all types of american performance vehicles, and find exciting and cool things I like about all of them. As a kid I built model kits of damn near all of them. i loved the cowl induction on the 70 454ss chevelle model I built, the tach built into the hood scoop on the AMC 390 rebel machine model, the fresh air induction on the 69 Hemi road runner kit. The pistol grip shifter on the 70 GTX. The 69 mach 1 shaker scoop.
The late 60s and early 70s was a great time for motor heads. Everybody had hot hardware, and the paint colors were famtastic!! I relived that excitement as a kid building this stuff in small scale in the early 1980s.
What I have found over the years is that theres super nice people with every type of collector car, and absolute jerks with every type of collector car. I think every kid when they are little likes corvettes. I mean they are the most visible sportscar out there. I know I did, and still do. Just the one I would want, I cant afford. Split window 1963 fuel injected 327 4 speed car. Silver with red interior. Oh well, I can build mine in 1/25th scale then.
I mean I had some dude at work refer to my mustang as a d'ouche canoe. With all the d'ouche driving them wearing aviators sunglasses. I said why? Am I a d'ouche driving it? It just made no sense to me. But then again he has a rotten attitude, and says crappy stuff to people all the time. He must be the d'ouche. He probably acts that way about anything somebody has that's nice. Some peoples kids sheesh.
