How Many People Could Be Fed for the Price of a Corvette?
What if we told you buying a Corvette does feed a lot of people? Corvette Forum members chime in on the provocative question.
Buying a sports car means experiencing a rush of emotions. Here’s an amazing machine that through your hard work you’ve earned the right to own and enjoy. But you also know it will be viewed by some as excessive.
Corvette Forum senior member cor66vette can tell you a little about that. He spotted a recent Facebook post in which a ‘Vette owner was asked about the number of people he could have fed for the cost of his ride. In response, the Corvette owner chose to draw attention to the number of jobs involved in the creation of America’s sports car.
Hindsight in the Era of Social Media
The FB post in question actually surfaced a few years back. However, seeing what other Corvette Forum members have to say about it makes for an interesting social experiment. Let us know what you think about it.
CHECK OUT: What Forum Members Are Saying
An overwhelming number of forum members seem to feel justified in their mutual dismissal of the anonymous questioner. Whether it’s a Corvette or some other luxury item, their position is that free Americans have the right to spend their money however they see fit. Their hard work — building Corvettes, for example — grants them that right.
Interestingly enough, many members point out that “there are lots of cars that cost more.” And they’re right — the all-American Corvette remains an exceptional performance value. Italians must eat so well each time a Ferrari is sold!
