Default These cars aren't cheap...

It takes some decent coin to own/operate a c7 Z06 so I'm curious what everyone does for a living?

For my '16 Z06, worked steady for 45 years, dabbled a bit in stocks & bonds, saved, I'm quite comfortable with our combined pensions and can finally afford the car. Not a young person, 72 now, but I am enjoying the heck out of it.

Retired for 13 years. Owning the car isn't the issue tracking the car is. A crack habit would be cheaper but not as much fun. Tracking the car is the second most fun thing you can do in the car. Wait, the most fun thing is pretty much impossible to do in a Corvette, really need a bench seat sedan to do that. So I guess tracking the car is the most fun thing given the space limitations.
