I've been fortunate enough to own two Corvettes in my lifetime: a 1967 and a 1976. I had the 1976 from 1984 through most of 1991...about eight years. Living in Michigan, and then Ohio, I, of course, did not drive the 'Vette in the winter. I actually put it on blocks every November.
The Monday of Thanksgiving week in 1991, I came home from work one day and decided I'd better get the 'Vette ready for winter. After all, it needed a good rest seeing as I'd put a grand total of 250 miles on it that year. Yup, you heard right, 250 miles.
So I got out the floor jack, rolled it into position underneath the 'Vette's frame, pumped it two or three times...and then the great enlightenment hit me. I dropped the 'Vette back down to the floor, put the jack away, went into the house to grab my driver's license, 'Vette title, and 'Vette keys. Immediately headed over to the nearest Jeep dealer and traded the 'Vette in on a brand-new 1992 Wrangler, 6-cylinder stick.
Keep in mind that I had never even driven a Wrangler before that day! Eventually I bought a brand-new 2003 Sport and now I've got a 2003 Sahara.
I have no desire to ever own another 'Vette. My love affair with Jeeps will last until I die and another thing: I don't have to put the Jeep away for the winter every year!
