    Typical Corvette owner

    I'm not really a Corvette fan, but cringe worthy....

    Maybe someone should market an air intake snorkel like they do for Jeeps.

    Not sure that's typical of Corvette owners but I've noticed, and no offense to our resident C8 owners that C8's attract some oddballs. Hahah

    Hardly typical of C8, or any other generation of Corvette owners. The guy is a buffoon. Amazing it was not hydro locked. The engine is out back but the intakes are along the sides.

    Hello Folks, Popeye the Sailor man here, I just got me new Sea 8 and she is great on the water. She rises out of the water fine , though she got me cabin a bit wet. I think she be okay, but I might be having to go float a loan, to make sure she will operate on dry land. Ahoy mateys!

    Yep, it's an unwritten rule on any automotive forum when speaking of the off-brands.

    Wow, that is amazing that it was still running after that submarine trip. Sheesh, dumb move to risk it.

    Isn't that the truth. I spend way too much time on Corvette Forums defending the "Neanderthal" Viper and the people that own them. Here I try to defend the Corvette from all the stereotypes of the car and the people that own them. I happen to love them both and actually find all the commentary comical.

    Yup. But stereotypes are true. Could you imagine New Balance stock should Corvette owners stop buying the white ones? Haha
