Default Driving gloves?

I can't help but want driving gloves for my new baby. Does anyone use driving gloves? I'm in the market for a good set of gloves for the lady. High quality is a must!

Come on guys you have to be open minded.. Nothing makes my neighbors more jealous than having to take the time to check tire pressure, walk around, 3x mirror check and finish off with throwing on a pair of fine driving gloves. It all has to be over the top.. Have you seen the new corvettes?

Dude, my wife or anybody who knows me would leave me if i walked around with a pair of "driving" gloves. It is not over the top, it is kind of .......won't say it. But, that is my thoughts and you asked what we thought. But, to each his own. Of course, unless your name is Jeff Gordon and you are talking about doing this on some sort of track...lol

If you want driving gloves go ahead and get them. I am speaking for myself but I do think a few other guys here will agree me on this. If you wave at me wearing driving gloves "I am NOT waving back".

Who walks around with driving gloves? It's called driving gloves. Plus name one woman in her right mind would have anything negative to say about a man who drives a corvette. Most of the men on this page are old men. You can't say you bought this car because it's your "dream car" you dream of the attention you get in your corvette. Oh well I guess I'm solo on this adventure. I'll be sure to post pic of me with my gloves on..lol. Loosen up!

Yeah, this may not go well...

Hey, you wanna wear gloves, I say go for it. Just don't call them driving gloves unless you are at the track.

Just say your hands are cold or that you are starring in a movie.

Oh snap I totally forgot about the scarf and googles. Man I found this nice leather cap that puts this it all together. Thanks guys for the great advice. I hope you see me drive by with the proper driving gear.. While you check the internet for the "delivery date of your new corvette"

Most of my neighbors would roll their eyes like wtf..... not, oh look at that cool corvette driver... you would be the talk of my cul du sac, but probably not in the way you would want. But, i live in Texas...lol

Love it keep it coming!! That's the whole point of the thread.. Nothing **** off another person than doing something they would NEVER do in their new vette. Again that's why it's my new vette. I can do what I want.

That's the point I want my neighbors to roll their freaking eyes out knowing I'm doing it exactly the opposite way they would do it. Oh wait that's right you dont have a corvette..hmm
