I had my corvette "need" when I was in my mid thirties. Right hand up to gosh, I had my 92' Convertable a week and was broadsided by a Jeep Wrangler. I went to the hospital . It was repaired. I was divorced. She wanted half the money for the Vette. I sold the Vette. Upgraded the wife. And had Jeeps with a Magnum or two in between! Moral of the story: I have no moral!

I can't afford a Corvette so I bought a "92" Corvette motor and installed in it my 1951 Willys pick up. Best of both worlds.

Nice!! Funny, 92 was the first year the covette motor went up to 300 horsepower!!! Since the 70's energy crisis!

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!

I own both. Can't beat crawling offroad one weekend and doing 140+ at the track the next.

It's actually pumped a bit more than that. It's fun when I need it and the EFI gives me OK milage too.
