No worries man. It does not matter what you post or ask on this forum you are always gonna have the person that gives you **** for no reason. You can say "I love my new C7!" and rest assured, someone will make a comment de-railing the thread and saying something negative about your thread or the self-agrandizing grammar police will try to make you feel like a schmuck.

The ONLY time I drive my Vette is in the pouring rain and the top must be off.

Saving money washing the inside and outside at the same time are we? How long does it take to dry the laundry when you got the top and the throttle down? Only in Mexico, of course.

Don't apologize. Your question is worthy of an answer. Unfortunately, this is the internet where civility and courteous behavior is apparently not needed.

This is a great forum, but I absolutely guarantee you that some yahoo will attempt to embarass you or make you angry. It's the nature of the internet.

Keep posting your questions. I'm a relative newbie, and I've got lots of them too.

Cheers

When you question what others do and why expect to be treated a bit like this. I used to keep full insurance on my GS and drive it on nice days as well all year long, but with the Z I feel no need to risk it on those tires. I also have a JKU Rubicon I love to drive in snow, much more fun than the Z in snow

I fully expect a picture in this thread with the 50's we are having this week

Perfect response. There are always those who want to draw attention to themselves at the expense of others. This is a forum for questions, opinions and helping fellow Corvette owners. I have found it extremely interesting and helpful. Do not submit to those who have no civility and insert their own egos.
