    I see we got our cars the same month and year. We also drive our C5 so that’s more miles.
    There is a madness to my method!

            When I finally got my 2015 C7 Z51 M7 (my first Corvette), the dealer of course wanted to sell me additional warranty coverage. I responded if the car was a disappointment for any reason that I would just get rid of it and buy something else! He said that with the sophistication of its technology, that it would be smart to buy the additional insurance. I again turned him down. He asked me how many miles I planned to put on the car annually. I told him as much as 10,000 miles a year and that it would not be my daily driver. He said that most of his Corvette owners did not put that many miles on their Corvette. My simple response was "that it was a Chevrolet and you were supposed to drive Chevrolets!" I still have the car and love it, so much so that I'm on a list for the mid-engine Corvette! No it is not a daily driver. I have not yet purchased all weather tires for it so consequently I don't drive it in temperatures that fall below 40 degrees or take it out when there is any evidence of remaining deicing salts on roads after a snowfall! I think I now have close to 25,000 exciting and satisfying miles logged on the car!

              Corvettes are made to be driven. There is a documented case of a C5 with 813,000 miles on it (and still climbing), with its original motor.

                I haven't had one (yet) but a family member had a 2015 Stingray Z51. He recently sold it and it had less than 2500 miles.

                  John, I just saw today, in I think a R&T or C&D internet post, that the celebrated original owner of a 3.2 million mile Volvo just died! I had previously seen some time ago a full article on both the car and the owner. Wow!

                    128 thousand miles on my 2008c6 z51 manual. Third new corvette. This kne i really didnt tear into the motor with mods. Best decision as the vehicle has been utterly reliable. The car is so good im having a hard time accepting im going to sell it but i will as i only have a two car garage and there is no parking on the streets and i have a curved driveway thats too much of a hassle for my poor wife to back out on the curve...

                    i did buy the gmpp warranty for 4 additional years 48k miles in the 30th month with 30k miles on the car. Only paid 1400 for the extended warranty so it made sense,

                    Ill do the same with the c8.

                      Just under 10k on the Z06 2016. Can’t believe she will be 3!
                      the 1978 Indy car has 42980. Interesting difference. The Z06 is crazy fast, but much easier to through around.

                        I do less because I share mileage between my daily driver, my C4 and my C7. Nice to be able to have choices.This was also a lower year since it was tied up for the mods I had done, but it does get out for many shorter runs. This week end was a perfect example where the weather wasn't great from the Thursday and Friday snows, so the TL was out in that weather. Once it cleared up and the roads were just wet, the C4 was out for some runs. When the roads dried up Sunday afternoon, the C7 got out for some fun.

                          I take about 80 to 90 annual rides to nowhere on our lovely rural roads. Each ride averages 75 or so miles.

                            If I add all four Corvettes together it comes to a little over 10,000.
