Default Bad Optics for Corvette Demographic



I mean, we get enough grief about Corvettes being “old guy” cars without our own making it worse. I snapped this admittedly poor quality picture yesterday in Waco, TX. For those who are not aware, Luby’s Cafeteria while not a bad place to eat is kind of known as a hangout primarily for the blue hairs.😔

Couldn't care less what other people think about my age with regard to what car I drive.

Yeah I agree and my tongue is firmly in my cheek as I am 61. I just found it somewhat amusing.

Lets Face the facts With a new Z06 close to the 100K Range there is not that many younger people that have jobs that can support the payments of a new Z06 or as far as that goes a $50,000 base model. However having said that I was at a local Vette night a couple of weeks ago and sure enough most of the owners were in their mid 50's to early 60's. Personally I kind of felt out of place now here is the Kicker I am 59 years old but I am not the average 59 year old man. I teach karate 6 days a week and spar with guys in there 20's twice a week. I drive my car like I stole it and am always up for a race. I hang out a lot of times with guys half my age. No I am not having a mid life crisis If I were I would trade my 52 year old wife in for a 22 year old hot blond. I am still the same hotrodder at heart that I was 40 years ago now just a little smarter.

Would it have been better to leave the cars in the garage for the day?

I was just getting ready to ask how old you were and if you had a problem with older Corvette drivers and just keep breathing and you too may grow old if you’re lucky.

Now I don’t have to says all that ‘cause you’re an old fart just like most of us.

I’m happy to help my CF colleagues cross the street, explain the Medicare donut hole to them, or find you all a nice sunny place to fall asleep in! 😜
