2- Thou shalt not pass a fellow Corvette owner in distress without offering aid.

3- Thou shalt not feed thy Corvette budget-grade fuel.

4- Thou shalt treat thy Vette with respect; great power, great responsibility.

5- Thou shalt keep thy Corvette clean and waxed at all times, yet thou shalt not bring thy Corvette to an automatic car wash.

6- Thou shalt park thy Corvette in such a manner as to protect her tender fenders.

7- Thou shalt blow out carbon with a high-speed run as required.

8- Thou shalt not cruise on an unpaved road.

9- Neither friend, nor foe, nor even thy spouse may drive thy Corvette without first showing proper reverence.

10- Each Vette is an individual work of art; judge not lest ye might be judged.
