I’ve never owned a Corvette but have loved them since before I could drive. The serious owners I know are near universal in their love of the brand, and their cars, whatever year. Don’t know why I never bought one, but likely because I’m just too cheap. I subscribe to Car & Driver, have for about forever, and it seems the “new mid-engined Corvette!!” is rumored every single time GM is developing the next gen. I hope they keep it front engine & pushrod V8.
