The Corvette is, as I said earlier, virtually a car without vices. So what’s the problem?

Regular Car Reviews called the C5 Corvette the flavored condom of cars. Reader I am not a robot explained why.


I keep telling myself that I’ll never own a Corvette because they’re owned by the wrong kind of person, someone I’ll never be. That’s what I keep telling myself.
