Cool Old life crisis

l am in my late 60s and have an rs ss on order. Many will think l am in a old life crisis for doing so. lol But please know this, l purchased my first new corvette in 68 and have owned at least one for the past 40 yrs. Presently in my hanger are C1,C2,C3. corvettes Listening to the politicians makes me wonder if the camaro, mustang, challenger are truely on their hit list and we better get them while we can. Personally l enjoy seeing a ratty mustang or camaro more then the latest camry or accord. l only post this to see if anyone else shares my concerns.

Yeah I think Obama and his crooks are going to kill off V-8's in the coming years. That is another reason I am getting a 2SS to probably have one of the last muscle cars that run on gas.

I think you're right. And from one old fart to another .. welcome

BTW, I'm 66. There was a thread on age around here awhile ago. We're in the top five or so with regard to "experience". Enjoy your Camaro

How bout laying off the politics here...please? Especially when they aren't even factual. Current Cafe rules were signed by Bush.

Signed...a liberal conservative.

Well, the V8's may be on the hit list, but lets remember this is America and we have elections every 2-4 years. If we speak loud enough and put the correct people in office we can undo any damage that is caused. We just need to start speaking out and being heard. Perhaps when the American Auto Companies are tired of getting their butts kicked by the Foreign Competition, they will build what the public wants, not what the government tells them to.

is this a political topic?

My point is with all his movements to want to get off foriegn oil but not will to drill here that the days of the V8 are numbered.

If we really want to get off foreign oil, we need drill more here and now along with developing green alternatives. That will come to light in the spring when gas prices skyrocket AGAIN! America is about choices! Why is this so hard for politicians to understand. Not everyone wants to drive a civic. God knows our politicians don't.
