    I just turned 37 two days ago and I'keep telling my wife I am 32. She tells me that Corvette ownership is for middle aged men, she calls it "middle man crisis" I said "if my 95 is a early stage Vette, just be ready by the time the real middle age kicks in, with fewer bills...C7 sounds good.

    Ummm, my 63 yr. old friend was telling me about blowing off a Mercedes yesterday at 130 W/ his C6. If that's any indication.

    Vettes are not a middle age "crisis car." Ownership is a function of income and, of course, interest in great sports cars. Some can own them at a relatively young age due to wealth or tremendous discipline in saving. For the vast majority of us in CAC, we always wanted one but couldn't afford it until we were 30 or 40 or older. But once you've had your first, I'll bet a majority of those go on to buy a second and maybe third one..... And there are plenty of woman who own them, and I don't they are "compensating, " as the psychologists would say, for some sexual inadequacy. We own vettes cause they are great fun, great engineering, and great automotive art.

    It is about PERFORMANCE. Which is why I prefera Nikon over a Kodack, or a Tag Heur over a Timex, or..... you get the point.

    Just bought my first Vet, C6 at age 35. No mid-life crisis, no sexual inadequacy. I worked hard to earn it and appreciate the performance. Liked Corvettes since I was 5, now I have one! WooHoo!

    I'm 40 and my 06 is the second. I was kind of unhappy with the C5 from the day I bought it, although it was a blast to drive.

    I am a converted Mustang guy. My last was a True Blue Bullitt which I think will always be "that car I should've held onto" but the C6 is erasing some of that.

    I am 53 and this is Vette number 2. I have a 64 that is my weekend toy. I traded my BMW M3 for my 2005 orange coupe. I just got it last week and already love it. And it sure looks great parked in the garage next to the 64.
