Laying the Car up for Winter? Not This Guy!


Here's one for those of you thinking you'll lay the car up for winter, or won't go further than 50 miles down the road... Smile

See, you can use them!

Wow/Good Find! Thumbs up What a testament to Vette durability.

Reminds me of the Jay Leno Corvette article in the Sunday Times a few years back, including a picture of his yellow C5 (Z06 I think). Described it as his "all weather supercar" and Corvettes being a car you can "beat up all day and fix them with a hammer."

Only 743,000mi to go, then, Steve......(can't somehow see my C6 achieving that at my age!)

Plenty of life left in the old dog yet I'm sure, and you're not doing too badly yourself Very Happy Perhaps its time for a few trans-continental tours Smile

Only 650,000 to go for our old girl I'm afraid!

I like to keep mine in use over winter.

Here's a short clip from a drone, of me having fun at Curborough Sprint Course last week:
