I drive mine to work... AKA the Park N Ride lot. I don't take it often because the park n ride is 0.8 miles from my house so I find it dumb to take it that far to let it sit out all day but I have had an itch this week and have been driving it there every day.



Parked next to a friend who also rides the bus with me, he gets to drive a whole 7 miles tho.

I work at a chemical plant. The vette here is never gonna happen. I've seen cars get hit with acid and it cleans the paint right off the metal.

Years ago I went to work (large office type space with public doing business there) and here were guys walking around in white moon suits dealing with a mold issue they had discovered. The rest of us were carrying on as usual If the acid takes the paint right off the metal of the cars in the parking lot it CAN"T be good for the people associated with those cars------ can it?

Only if there is a problem and the acid hits it directly. Otherwise it is just a corrosive environment. I had my trailer parked here for a bit and the entire frame had surface rust after 6 months. (it was a new trailer with a fully painted frame).

I don't seem to have any of my 1980, 2000, 2007, and 2012 Callaway at work but I do have two of my former Corvettes;

2008 widebody



2008 before widebody



2005



I'll have to rectify that and get some new pics here at work of my current vettes.

Ralph this is Vettes at work not DD vs garage queens. Nobody said anything about that.
Just enjoying seeing vettes at work.
