Default Ever slept in your C6?

I know, this is . I also know that this is why you have your (insert vehicle suited for sleeping here). I also know that is why there are hotels/motels.

This was/is strictly for fun and each of these was on a multi-day trip and only one night was spent sleeping in the Vette. The first, in my VY 2007, was about 10 miles north of Ensenada, Mexico, along the Baja, Mexico, Pacific Ocean coastline. At the campground it cost $6.00 to park there overnight. The second was last May in my TR 2011 and is at a National Forest campground (cost $0) about 10 miles east of the north rim of the Grand Canyon. Location, location, location. I sleep stretched out on my back with my torso in the cargo area on a pad and my legs going out over the console. Can even see the stars up through the hatch glass

Looks like the poor pup got the gravel side of the car and not the (somewhat) grass side. And to answer your question; not yet.

Not IN my Callaway Centennial GS Vert but beside it in garage no less than a dozen times. Wife has suggested I just move a cot out here. BUT.... If I was going to, where you did sounds pretty cool. Especially on ocean. That would be a memory only Alzheimer's could rob me of.

Yep. That is a stock Vette loaded up for a 10 day, 4,000 mile trip. This was the first night on the road.

Don't worry, he slept over on the other side of the car attached to a 20 foot lead attached to a tree such that it wouldn't let him out in the road. He LOVED the temp compared to Phoenix (He is a VERY furry Chow). I kept telling myself I wasn't cold

I believe that one buddy, Ive been there.. And a very nice garage to nap in. Only problem is all the projects surrounding you in there, I couldnt have my scatter brain that close to them.. Miller Lite helps tho!!

If I drive between NJ and Florida without a full overnight stop, I usually pull into a motel parking lot and take a one to two hour snooze.
