But then that huge smile likely turned into sobs of disappointment when the same Z06 did not even finish (coming in dead last, obviously) in the Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car competition a few weeks later.

How could Chevy let such a thing happen, you may have asked yourself.

Corvette owners are funny in the way that they love to look at their cars. When they drive it out somewhere and have to park, they do so where the can look at it.

Some even go to extremes like building a website to celebrate their Corvette or they share photo after photo of their rides on social media. Some owners even send Christmas cards featuring their Corvettes out to folks every year.
