What else are you going to use when the wife says gallon of milk, loaf of bread, a dozen eggs, and step on it? Happy wife, happy life, right?

That's not what cars are for and why they make trucks.

I'd say just about every person who uses his vette for DD gets groceries. This thread is silly.

I took mine to the beach and carried fishing poles and sandy beach chairs. I guess I'm crazy for thinking it's just a car.

I like going to the grocery store. Another chance to drive it. By the way, how are those Publix potato chips?

Yeah with the wife you can be right or you can be happy and 99% of the time I just choose to be happy. ( Just not worth it LOL) I see you ride,you wouldn't believe all the groceries you can get in a set of street glide saddlebags 😎

It's not where you go...it's where you park.

Mine has been to a Walmart for groceries a few times but this WM is basically in a bedroom community for a Fortune 100 corporation so it isn't your typical Walmart. And I always grab one of the decorative end slots with the trees/shrubbery where the car is in a very wide slot with its nose and one side protected.

A couple of weeks ago I parked it in this same town near my favorite coffee shop and was followed by a teen on a skateboard. He came up and introduced himself and asked if he could take some photos of the car. I told him to bring his mom or dad with him sometime and I would let him sit in the car and he asked me if I could hang around a few minutes because his mother was only a couple of blocks away. He texted her and she quickly showed up and he got his wish of a short ride in the Z06. I congratulated his mother on raising a very polite son.
