Drove my 67 convertible regularly to the course, now I drive this because of the trunk.

Interesting question....which I never would have thought of. I drive my classic cars to where ever I feel the need to go...

Part of the reason I got a C1 instead of a C2 is so I’d have enough room for a couple sets of golf clubs or suit cases or etc.

I worry more about the car getting dinged at cruise-ins than the golf course.

Love parking at the golf course among the old timers Beemers and Mercedes. When I grow up(old)maybe I’ll get one of those also.

When I donít drive the Vette to the goof course or need more room this is my ride.

Not a Vette but and old friend Iíve had since about 1978.

Lots more room in the trunk of my C1 than my Bimmer. But if I really need to haul something in a hurry, I use my farm truck.

Actually, that is exactly what I was thinking. A nice C5 vert.

Everybody starts out saying that....several threads on it already... From Hagerty's web site...




That "etc" is where we are. Again, not discouraging you, but just know what you're dealing with...

You are exactly right. I will check. It is almost getting to the point that I should just include my Vette in my Allstate policy. Just get fire and theft when I store it in the winter.

This is definitely a “first world problem”. Bring some packing blankets with you to put on the car if your worried, and skip the alcohol. The liability of any drinking and driving today is not worth the risk.

Also parking at the course and adult beverages after.
Now that I am retired I want to drive it more to these types of things.
What do you guys that golf do?
I love my Corvettes and I love Golf, I never mix the two, I never drive my vettes to the golf course, I would worry about the car the whole round and not focus on my game. And I agree with Frankie on a insurance claim covering the car IF something would happen.

I drive both my '69 and my '63 to golf. If I couldn't drive them, I wouldn't keep them. Plus, I get two extra great drives per round.

The 63 (at least) has two bolts at the front tracks on each seat - the rear of the track slides into brackets attached to the body...

Agreed.
The 67 uses four bolts per seat though.

Would not have a car I couldn't drive to the golf course.
Grundy has verified it's ok AND will pay me agreed value if stolen.
I even take my 36 Ford 3 window coupe and put the clubs on the floor and seat on the passenger side.
Set the alarm and don't worry about a thing.
