Default Why are Corvettes so low to the ground???

Hey guys: I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and he said to me, "Why are Corvettes so low to the ground?" I said are you serious?? He couldn't understand it. I said because it's a real sports car!! He didn't like the fact that they were so low, otherwise he would buy one. I said well, then buy a Lincoln or a Buick or something!! Just had to get that off my chest!! Thanks for listening.

we may be low to the ground but the cars still look like 4x4s most of the time.

Tell your buddy to buy a stock C5 (not lowered yet). They are 4x4's...
