  • Can your partner drive your 800 hp Corvette's?

    My girls driving impresses me she can back the Corvette from either side and from the front stalls to get them out herself. Which is pretty good since the garage is 44 ft deep and holds more than 4 you have to back straight .

    Then with the 2 inch headers and sounds from the 2300 and then 800 hp and the angry cold start sounds she still drives it out. Pretty good! She is staying with A8 so far trying to get her to drive the M7 as well. But she is from Montana Ranch country so she like driving the new truck the best. But she does get her choice!

    My wife is a gearhead, an outstanding driver. Has driven 53 manual transmissions in a row, and shifts gears flawlessly. However, when we moved from the C6 Z06 to our C7 Z06, she said “I’ll pass.” My guess is that she will enjoy driving the C8 (but has already indicated her strong displeasure that it will not have a manual trans).

      My wife was a SCCA National licensed Racing Driver. She drove GT-1, SP, and Formula Ford. And oh yea, she can shift with the best of them. I don’t understand why men think that women can’t drive. My wife beat many men on the track. And probably most of the guys here.

        I don't think any woman in my life could drive a stick. Which is a good thing since I had a small collection of Vintage Porsches , all sticks, and everyone wanted to drive them.

          This thread had better not get sexist or it will be history. We have outstanding female and male drivers.

            Goes both ways and yes plenty of women cannot drive but there are also plenty that can. Just because you can shift doesn't mean you drive correctly.

            Plenty of guys I would leave the men part off that cannot drive an automatic correctly let alone a stick. 1 Example You see people male and female every day stopping behind the crosswalk on the green when turning left .WORST DRIVERS EVER! They need to have real lessons. Your car should be completely in the middle of the intersection waiting to turn.
            Drives me nuts!

              While I cannot remember the exact circumstances of why this occurred, back in 1967 when I had a C2, I was in Massachusetts at my grandparents house, and my C2 was at home in northern New Jersey. it was a red roadster with a solid lifter 327 and a Muncie four speed. And my mother, at home, needed to get to Massachusetts. So she drove the C2, top down, the 210 miles. She had never driven a Corvette before, but could drive a stick well.

              She told me she had a blast.

              When she passed away four years ago at age 96, I brought her cremains urn to the cemetery myself.......in the passenger seat of my C7.
