Hard to imagine that the previous owner spent $24,000 plus fuel and maintenance costs for 12,000 miles of enjoyment in this Vette. All my previous cages have averaged $0.09 a mile over the time of ownership. This guy spent over $2 a mile.
My wife convinced me that I am going insane and need a reality check. I don't even use all the available acceleration that the NA solstice provides. LOL!
I'll bet she would be singing a different tune if I bought an LS3 Sierra Truck that she could borrow to tow her horse trailer.
Uncovered the Solstice today and took it out for a 'spirited' drive on the fine curves where I live. The only thing that the V8 would provide would be the instantaneous passing power. If I am going to overtake a local driver who speeds on the straights and parks his car in the curves I have to plan carefully with the 4 banger. I turbo kit would probably help with that.
I think I will just keep the Vette a dream since I am not really a car guy.
