After you read this you might think, Corvette drivers are … well….Richard Craniums… but I think this is an issue with any car person with a car they love. My wife is like that with new cars – Nissan and two Lexus brand cars over the years. I’ve been less so, I think with my ’70 Mustang (now going to a large collector) and my two Corvettes (C4 and C6) – well maybe not.
But generally I don’t make people take their shoes off before getting in my car. No smoking of course and eating and drinking are fine. Spills will get you tossed out at the next stop however.

Thanks for reading.
I love the unwritten rule that #Corvette drivers wave to each other on the road. Can’t wait to have my one one day. #ThanksMom
Corvette convertible drivers among the safest, study shows. We all know Chevy Corvette drivers are passionate about their cars. One clear indication of this is how safe they are when it comes to their driving – well, some may …
I love road racing. I’d much rather race on a road course. It’s not as intense as the short burst on a drag strip and or as predictable as an oval course. It challenges all of your driving skills, shifting, braking, acceleration and cornering.
Watching on T.V. I rather enjoy a good road race. I was lucky enough to live in Riverside, Ca. when Riverside Raceway was still running and I attended one of the last road races there. It was great.
But what about those classes? I’ve learned a bit more since racing SCCA, but still I’m not 100%. So let’s start with a the GT Class.
These are limited in body style to coupe, sedan and convertible. They have to be models that are sold in the real world market as a sports car, sport touring cars for performance version off luxury cars. Those are cars like:
My Fav the C6 Corvette
Forced induction is allowed, if the car came that way in production. SCCA has a provision to allow better competition for car to add forced induction so help meet the horse power range.
The horsepower range is 425 (15 over stock base model C6) to 525. Your car has to be rear real or all wheel drive. Weight a varied depending on wheel/tire size but average 2900 – 3800 lbs.
Ye,s I know, you are saying big deal!! But it was a big deal here is southern Arizona. Even a couple snow flakes can cause a tizz, that alone two snow squaws dumping 2 plus inches each and then having cold enough to stick around until the next day.
Vette – Nicely tucked in the garage. Mustang tucked under it’s cover.
Normally this isn’t the normal scene, the snow nor the Vette in the garage over night (0nly happened because I was taking the Mrs. Lexus in for service.
Here are some more RARE winter scenes from Southern Arizona.
