It was SOOOOO nice today!  My daughter (who is 11) and I went for a ride, t-tops off.  It was fun!  Even had a group of kids (high-school aged) yell "Nice Car!"  Clap

We could sure use some of that rain down here but it all went north to you folks. Guess we'll just have to make the best of all this sunshine Sunshine  How sweet it is.

Glad to see that you're out on the road! It's almost 70 here today, so I went for a short drive myself.

Mikeee and Mark, I hear ya!  Time with the kids is priceless.  I'm fortunate they both love the Vette!  Tonight will probably be game night. It's fun to have the whole family play a game together.

My son is in 8th grade; starting HS next year Confused.  (How'd I get that old....)  Occasionally I'm home when he leaves for school.  When I ask if he wants a ride rather than take the school bus, he asks "In which car?"  If I say the Vette, he wants a ride.  Any of the other vehicles, he passes. 

Shortly after I got the Vette, my daughter (who is in 5th grade) was telling her friends that her mom got a Corvette.  She couldn't believe their response...."What's a Corvette?"   Shocked

Man, your lucky Karen, your kids love your Vette and they like to spend time with you in it....Cool  I went to the new car show today with my son (24).  I had to baby sit some vet club members cars there for my club, then we went lookin' at the (Fugly) new cars.  When I got home all I could think about was driving the Gold Thang.  Josh (my son) wanted to go look for some CD's so we went in the Gold Thang My son goes, "Gee Mom, why do you always want to drive this old thing for, let's take the C5."  "If I were you, I would sell it and buy a Lincoln." ShockedShockedDead  I swear, I don't know where that boy came from! Shocked  I'll have to leave it to someone else (that appreciate it for what it is) when I pass away (hopefully a long time from now). CryCry

I feel you Karen, my daughter is 10 and my son is 12. I love to drive the vette with my daughter. Sometimes she's interested other times she'd rather play with her Bratt dolls. I really want her to have the car when I'm gone. Want to add her to the lady vette owners. Guess it'll come in time. My son is somewhat interested but would rather play video games! Picked him up from school one day got a lot attention from the kids and teachers.
 
Oh well, don't mind driving alone too!

My 16 yr old daughter walks into the garage and says my car is beautiful (vetteBig%20smile) and mom's car is beautiful (94 BMW 325isBig%20smile) I want one of them not (beater 96 Aerostar VanLOL). I told her it only took me 47 yrs to get the vette so she might have to wait a whileRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing. I did promise her though, if she can keep a clean driving record and good grades I would buy her something. So this summer I will start looking for a mid 90's mustang with a v6, no v8's for her, she likes to use the power.LOL

It won't be long before they'll want the keys to the Vette instead of just a ride to school.

[QUOTE=dwright]It won't be long before they'll want the keys to the Vette instead of just a ride to school.[/QUOTE]

I know!  And that scares the #(@& out of me.  I believe that giving young drivers the keys to a sports car is like handing a little kid a loaded gun!  It's just not a good idea...  Once they have a few miles under their belt, I will let them drive it as long as Mike or I are in the passenger seat.  Their already arguing over who gets it when I'm dead...Cry  I told them I was going to be burried in it LOL.  (Not really; I couldn't do that to a Vette!)

I have a 1966 MGB that I have let my daughter drive while I am a passenger(never the vette). Plus it is teaching her how to drive a stick. We are in a small town so not much traffic to worry about. She still has not mastered the technique of driving a manual. We are at a light waiting for traffic to clear (2 cars) so she can turn left. Just as the 2nd car clears (its the policeLOL) she revs the engine up and drops the clutchShocked. Does a little burn out with this 4 cyl. The cop must have figured it was a rookie cause he didn't come after us. At the next light a couple pulls along side in there new dodge magnum(they were behind us at the light) and asks my daughter if we have a Hemi under the hoodRolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing.
