Yep same here except Gran Turismo. The C7.R Gr3 is a hoot to race. Spring mountain March.

There was a dude on this forum recently said that people who live in Arizona store their sports cars in the summer!
Wow! That's a new one to me.

I am addictive but I drive mine, even with the terrible below 70 MPSS. I "could" drive other cars that I own but I chose to drive the vette unless forced to do otherwise. I take the Legacy gt, Fit and Silverado out once a month but that's it for them.

The Corvette, "a drug?" Well, yes and no......

... It is, for those among us whom really dig it. I wouldn't be taking the opportunity loss of what my new C7 will end up costing me if it wasn't worth it to me. So, yes, it is a modified mood/behavioral entity, to that extent...

He's correct. I read the same post/ings. One or more folks have stated; that they won't subject themselves and the C7 to the unGodly heat of Summer South Florida / Arizona driving. ...

I used to live at 7000 feet and dealt with 6 plus months of cold and/or snow. Since then I have fled to the sunny deserts of Arizona and all the sunshine and fun you can handle. A few days ago on a corvette run with 7 other corvettes this is what we encountered out on Route 66!

I live on the Northeast and own a C7 Z Vert. I do not permanently store mine throughout the Winter months. Salt ,sand, and sub 20* temps keep it inside. The salt and sand periodically gets washed away and out it comes. I probably had it out 5 days in January and a few days so far this month. I dust it off and waterless wash it to keep it squeeky clean.

I used to drive my various Corvettes I've had over the years all the time and stare at them in the garage. Now mine sits under a cover collecting dust. I really don't care to drive it, unfortunately. I've had a few older cars that get way more attention. Latest is a 1969 Camaro. I get a huge kick out of driving it. I also have more fun driving my Jeep JKU that's lifted and looks cool. Even my new Ram pickup is above the Corvette in the want to drive pecking order. It's depreciated so much I'm not sure what to do with it. I might dump it for the new Lincoln Aviator. So it's not a drug for me. If anything it gives me a headache.

I live in Chiggerbranch, Mississippi and can drive mine every day I want to. I work at home and when the office gets slow I just let myself off and go for a drive. I love long distance marksmanship and will probably load the vette tomorrow afternoon and head to the range since it will be in the 70's with sunshine.

I love my Vette’s but these days if it’s 50 deg or more in the mornings and no chance of rain I take the Harley.
‘In Texas with summer days consistently pushing 100 I still take the bike. Yeah A/C would be nice but gas mileage is a factor.
I’ve Had vettes for damn near 40 years and to me it is a disease with no cure and I don’t know how you guys that have to park them for the winter do it.
Forecast 50 in the morn, high of 77.....Street Glide it is.....GS will get a day of rest....

Sounds like youve lost that loving feeling. A Lincoln Aviator, really? The JKU I get. Our JKU Rubicon is a hoot...especially with the top off. But a different animal than the C7Z altogether.

None of my other vehicles are anything like my new C7. I'm thankful that I enjoy the h#ll out my new C7 M7 convertible, and that I cannot see myself ever not owning a Corvette.
