Would You Ever Use Your Corvette for Towing?

Believe it or not, some people use their Corvette to tow stuff. It’s a heated topic, with some people admiring a Corvette being put to work. But in other cases, it can¬†get in the way of friendships.

Actually, using the Corvette to tow some small stuff is more popular than one might think. Motorcycles and small sea craft tow behind a ‘Vette just fine.¬†Granted the motorcycle being towed above is about the most extreme that you’d want to go. A hitch also serves as a great way to tow extra tires and spare equipment when going to an autocross or track day event. So why all the commotion?

I’m going to offer an opinion here: considering how many different ways there are to use and enjoy a Corvette, adding a tow hitch is really not a big deal. We all have a different vision of what we want out of our dream build. Some of us like an unmolested Corvette, but others will strip it and make a 1/4 mile monster. So long as someone is not expecting to tow another car or something similarly heavy, I see no problem with a tow hitch. What about you?
