Default Just curious, how many C2 drivers under the age of 50??

Being a fan of multiple makes/models/brands/styles of "hot rods", I've noticed in the past 4-5 years there are other segments of the hobby (air cooled 911, NSX, 1st Gen Camaros, vintage BMW, etc.) with a similar "buy in price" but a bigger percentage of the demographic being "younger guys". Just curious how many guys under 50 we have here driving C2s.

This is by no means a knock against other members of the forum, having spent significant time on the C5 and C3 forums over the years, I'm just curious what the overall demographics looks like on side C2 side of the house.

If only the owners who are under 50 reply this could be one of the shortest threads in the history of the C2 forum.

Please believe I would like nothing better than to see the responses pile up on this thread. This as well as the street rod hobby needs an influx of younger people The more the better.

My oldest son was 30 when he bought his first C2, heís now had three of them. He is 40 now.Two of his friends both under 30 bought C1 and the other bought a 67 coupe and stuffed a nasty big block in it. My middle boy has a corvette reastoration shop in Fla. It is nice to see young people into these cars.

I started driving my '67 when I was 17. I sold a '69 to get it and all but one of my "car buddies" said I was nuts for getting rid of the nine for the seven. For reference, it was shortly after Ford pardoned Nixon.

Iím 47 and have owned my 65 for 9 years. I dreamed of having one since about 1980 when my father took me to a corvette show.

Arbitrary mostly, but I don't run into too many other C2 owners younger than 50.
