From the AP image archives comes proof that, yeah, some assholes do drive Corvettes. Great license plate, though.

I've been to enough Corvette meets to confirm that roughly half of Corvette owners are assholes. I was at a local meet with my C4 and a guy comes up to me and says "Nice car." Okay, seems like a legit guy, might want to ask me a few questions right? Nope. "Not as nice as mine," he says.

Careful not to feed his ego, I just said "Yeah, it's not too bad for 120k on the clock." To that he replies "Mine has less, and a lottt more power." I'm thinking, why the %@#$ did you even come over here?? So I ask him what he has, he tells me he has a C6Z and it's more awesome than my old C4. Not sure what his objective was, but I put him in place when I explained to him how much better my horsepower-to-price ratio was :)

There are a lot of douchy Corvette guys, but almost ALL of them drive C6's or non-Z06 C5's. The guys with the older cars are usually cool, they're the ones who drive a Corvette because it's a Corvette, not because they want to be "cool."
