Lets get one thing straight here before I go any further, Neil Peart writes books just like the International Harvester Tractor parts counter guy he is, but when it comes to songs he wrote the soundtrack of my life along with the other two guys, one of whom can sing, play open cords on a bass, one keyboard with his free hand, and another with his foot while making it look easy.
Oh and after my last car event I learned that everyone apparently has a Corvette in the garage at home, I may pickup a C4 just so that I can start saying that I have a Corvette at home in the garage as well. Someone should tell these people that the only car they have is the one people can see.
Ford Made a 2 seater, they called it the Thunderbird, you may have heard of it before, it was not a Corvette and it was aimed at a totally different market than the Corvette. The Thunderbird was aimed at the higher class more well healed secretaries that didn’t want the party girl Mustang the same way that the Corvette was aimed at testosterone junkies that didn’t want the bulk of the Camaro.
I have been driving 2 seaters that fit my budget and lifestyle for over 30 years, a Fiero when I was a Navy Submariner and used to spend six months a year at sea where a Corvette, I could have bought a 68 Corvette convertible or the Fiero for the same price when I was doing my pre boot camp shopping, would be nothing but something to worry about the entire underway. Later a Miata that serves me well.
I went to a car event recently, I showed with my Miata, and another guy brought his rack body pickup and both were valid collector cars. What wasn’t cool were the people that were either too obsessed with or embarrassed by their cars to bring them, who cares what it is, it’s your car and makes you happy you should be proud of it.
Some advice, all cars are valid and if they bring their owner happiness that is all they need to do. You may not agree with the guy that will be waxing his Yugo this weekend, but you should at least get it.
