: My V is saving me lots of $$$

03-14-11, 09:23 PM
I turned 52 a few days ago and my V turned 2. I just realized that I am not looking for a new toy, usually I have already bought a new one well before a car is two years old....My first Vette stayed around more than 2 years, but notthing has quite made the cut since.

I still love this car, and don't know anything else I would rather have. In fact with all the money I am saving by not trading, I will likely keep the V forever and just buy a new one of some other flavor or maybe even a new V in a different color. I have to admit the coupe was really facinating for a while.... I almost bought one for the wife and might still do that...

But for now, I am really saving some $$$.

I agree with saving money with this car....except on gas. Still enjoying my V after almost 23.5k miles and two years. My eye has started to wander a bit, as it does every two years, but nothing I'm interested in is as entertaining to drive as the V. I'll probably end up keeping my V as well for at least another year, if not more, finances willing. I do plan to daily drive my S2000 (30 mpg, own free and clear) when it gets warmer, to save on gas.

you are lucky. the driving I do, the V2 would cost me another $2k (maybe more) in gas every year.
