I loved Corvettes all through junior high, high school and into college. I had posters on my wall read about them, etc. I was determined to have one someday.
I ended up losing interest towards the end of college, when I met my husband who had a new Mustang GT convertible. I don't care all that much for Corvettes any more, but I still admire their speed.
Anyway, I pulled up next to one at a stop light yesterday - it was not the newest body style,but the one before it. This older guy in it asks me what kind of car I'm in, and says appreciatevely, "Nice Car!"
I know it's silly but that just made my day, to have a driver of my former dream car say Nice Car to me!
Of course he went on to smoke me. I was amazed at how much high end power he had, we were doing 70, and he pulled away like he was on warp speed!
Oh, also, I have had a couple people who haven't a clue, ask if the Mini cost about what a Corvette does!
