Inspired by homesick345's Corvette C3 thread, I thought that I would post my own thread concerning my current "crisis." For the past several months I have had a strong urge to buy a used Corvette C7 convertible. I have done a lot of research, and my preference is for a 2014 Premiere Edition, which is a limited edition of 550. I have owned numerous convertibles and sports cars before, but I have never owned a Corvette. I am surprised by this recent desire to buy one, and am wondering if I have simply fallen victim to mid-life crisis. I currently have a perfectly good Crossfire roadster which is ideal for the kind of driving that I do. It handles well, is extremely reliable, and attracts plenty of attention wherever I go. I suspect that positive attention is one major reason behind the desire for a mid-life crisis car. The Crossfire fills that need for a lot less money than the Corvette. I have discussed this car on the Corvette Forum, and of course every C7 owner thinks that there is no better car for the money. Then I remember that they're all guys who are experiencing the same mid-life crisis. Every day when I drive the streets and highways of Florida I see dozens of C7 Corvettes, nearly all of them being driven by a guy who is between 55 and 75. If I go to Cars and Coffee, I know that I will see at least 10 of them. I guess my question is whether I should surrender to the midlife crisis thing and become just like everyone else, or should I fight the urge and forget it? I'm looking for opinions on the C7, and also on C6 convertibles. A Corvette enthusiast pointed out recently that I can buy a very nice loaded low mileage C6 for $15-20k less than my targeted Premiere Edition. Its not the "latest thing," but still a pretty nice car. I like cars, and have established some good friendships through membership in various car clubs. Buying a Corvette would potentially introduce me to a new group of people. That seems like a good thing to me. What do you think? Good idea? C7 for mid $40s or C6 for mid $20s? Other ideas?
