Default After you drive your Vette????

Do you feel invigorated after driving the Vette ?----I know I do----I feel like a different person--I'm 66 years young.

I always feel better after a drive in my car. It's one of the things I do if I am down or pissed off. Get in my car and go for a drive.

Absolutely. Therapy. One of the main reasons I am on my 3rd Vette and have always had a toy car. And one of the main reasons I don't use it as a DD. It would lose it's effect if I drove it everywhere I went.

It's helped me relax. I drove from SE Michigan to somewhere in Pennsylvania and back to unwind one day/night.

Therapy from work. And the North Georgia mountains and a C6 does a good job of fixing that.

My biggest pleasure is when I know I'm about to drive it, once behind the wheel it's all gravy.

More than a few times I've walked into my house after a quick trip to the store and after hanging up the fob I tell the wife "Man I love that damn car..." she always says "Yeah I know I know."
