We call the first one winter and the second one summer. Here in Detroit there are Corvettes all over the place.

I've been a Corvette owner for 50 years. A pioneer of the " wave " so to speak. I always notice a Corvette. AS far as the frequency of seeing a Corvette, back in the late 50's an early 60's, it was rare to see a Corvette. But back them We had a Corvette Club, which was very rare as well.
The number of Corvette that are still on the road has increased over the years , naturally so the number of Corvettes makes seeing them more possible. On nice days, and on the weekends ( prime Corvette cruse times ) I see more Corvettes on the road... During a given week day, I could go two or three days without seeing one, and then on a nice day see 10 or 15..

Why should you care if you see one or not?

I see more Corvettes on the road on nice days and weekends. I guess most are like me and don't use it as a daily driver.

I'm usually on a plane and on the road during the week- so the Vette sits covered in the garage . . .Saturday mornings seem to be the time when everyone brings their cars out into the sunshine . . .lots of waves regardless of generation . . .

I saw two Corvettes on the road today, even though it is a rainy day. One was a silver C5 and the other was a TR C6 GS. Good to see some people drive them even when the sun is not shining. Most days I do not see them on the road unless it is a weekend and the weather is nice.

I also saw a C6 vert today going down the highway cruising on a rainy day it had dealer tags. I see them quite often when the weather is nice but hardly at all when its cold or rainy out.

Douche Bag also comes to mind..... I could be wrong, though.. but I doubt it. Am I being too insensitive?

Not at all, We have a whole new breed of Corvette owners that we are not use to seeing, And I am afraid the good days are lost. As Rodney D said " I can't get no respect".

I don't care .. It's an observation only ... Now what I do care is the country that I call home , I can also do , go and write or call things the way I see them
I'm having lunch today on a patio and we happened to notice above normal corvettes out on the road .. What I do care about in my life is my wife .. Just saying caring to me must be a little different what tou call caring get a life 3 boy toys
