Has anyone noticed that this article contains a typo?   Carolina Cash 5 drawing is misspelled as Carlina Cash 5 in the second paragraph of this article / post. 

Just saying.

    You don't need millions to buy and maintain a Corvette...lol 

    If I had won millions then the greed would kick in and I'd def go all out on a Bentley or Lambo..lol If it was over $5 million after taxes.

    Yes, I know "You don't need millions to buy and maintain a  Corvette".

    My point is, if he won millions, he could afford to spent some of it recklessly!

    We all get a lot out of lotteries!

      I had a 78 and at 6'0" this is one of very few cars I didn't need the seat back almost far as it will go.

      My Opel GT (mini vette) also has enough leg room for someone taller,

      the difference is when your that big your shoulders feel a little cramped.

       

       

      On a sad note to Vette lovers, a close friend's garage recently burned to the ground,

      in it was a 61 sharknose Vette that he owned for 43 years.

      So sorry to hear about your friend's garage and car — a real heartbreaker!

        Eh, he can do as he pleases but personally I wouldn't buy a car that expensive unless I won a jackpot that netted me at least $25 million after taxes.  I will not be that lottery winner who goes broke!

        What's nice is that I could drive any sports car regardless of size, that's the nice thing about being 5'8"

        Not buying a $65-70k car unless you had $25 million in the bank is being just a little apprehensive. Just to put it in perspective, that's like someone who has $250,000 in their bank account forking over $700 for their dream vehicle.

              LO L.....   This has to be one of the ugliest cars ever made, but also one of the most reliable American cars ever made. I remember my aunt bought one in the 80s when I was a kid and she drove it up until three years ago with over 250,000 miles until her husband forced her to sell it and bought her a new Toyota Sienna that she hates.

              According to him the Chevette wasn't a good image for him because he's an executive banker and he said that the car does not fit into the neighborhood and that he was tired of being made fun of at work  because he was being called a grinch and cheapskate because he let his wife drive around in an old beat up car.

              I wonder why this car was so popular.

                  If he's working for Richard Childress Racing he can probably afford it. It's a NASCAR team. Anyone ever hear of a guy named Dale Earnhardt? The father and son both drove for RCR at one time.

                  Yea we remember him.  May Dale Earnhardt rest in peace.  Tell this dude if he borrows the car for work to check those seat belt attachments real good before he goes home in it.
