One day gentlemen, One day! Until then I'll will use you folks as inspiration
58+.

Retired 3+ years ago and bought a C6 for my retirement present. I wanted a Corvette since I was 5 years old (grew up in the Detroit area), but never could rationalize it since it wouldn't be a daily drive car.

My 2011 vehicle has around 11,500 miles on it, I only drive it when the weather is nice and I can take it on the freeway.

I have a deposit at 2 places for a C7 Z06...

Want to feel young?

My regular Saturday lunch buddies were 90, 92 and 93.

Unfortunately the 90-year old is now suffering from Alzheimer's, the 92-year old recently died from a stroke, but the 93-year old is sharper mentally and physically than I am, and I'm 20 years younger.

Im 35 and own a C7 ZO6 . I am sure your not the only one who can't afford these cars at your age . Corvettes are expensive Sportscars at any age .

You purchased the C6 and didn't drive it, now something new has desirability and you're giving someone an almost new car. I did that once, too with my C6. Never again. My 2014 convertible now has almost half the mileage of my 2006 C6, when traded, in a little over a year. Happy motoring.

Corvettes are the least amount of fun on the freeway. Couldn't imagine. I bought my C7 2 months ago and put 3,200 miles on it before winter :X

71 Fantastic Years Old. Have owned 2 Vettes, a C5 and now a C7. Both were phenomenal vehicles. Never had one major problem with the C5. It was the most maintenance free vehicle I have ever owned. Hopefully, the C7 will be the same. So far, so good.

I'm a tad over 10 in dog years (that would be 72+). In Canada it takes 65 years to save up for a corvette and 7 years to find a dealer who can get one.
