Risks in a Corvette

I have told my cousin once before. I think if I was going to die it would be due to my corvette. Very straight forward but it is true.

I think once in a while the fact that a good healthy person like me who doesnt work in some dangerous environment, or doesnt have any medical conditions, highest chance of death would be behind the seat of a sports car. Of course this can be said for all fast, or probably for pretty much anyone who chooses to drive wrecklessly.

I said that to say this. I have family members, who tell me they pray for me to be safe in my corvette. And they will on occasion say, to drive carefully etc.

I have thought of several times to sell my corvette to pretty much eliminate this possibility. I know a rebuttal could be to merely, not drive fast, race, or do anything crazy in the vette. But truth is, the power is there and its so tempting.

I know i will be probably get flamed as a young dumb kid or something who shouldnt have a corvette if hes thinking this way. But a lot has happened in my family that has got me to the point where I realize i am valuable to the people I love. And in a way, is selfish to not give my own self a certain care.

Anyways, I know I'm not a brave man, never have been never will be. But, i would say that someone on here has had this pass their mind before. I am an impressionable person so take ear to wise words.

Thanks -Matthew

Help! 1974 corvette starter stays engaged unless parking brake on.

I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with it. It's a 1974 with the L82 and 4spd manual transmission. what happens is that the starter will stay engaged unless the parking brake is at least two clicks up. The parking brake indicator light also dims when it's at least two clicks up. The previous owner I believe put in a new wire harness along with msd ignition. I'm hoping somethings not horribly messed up, but I have no clue. I am a mechanic but have little experience with corvettes. ...

Dozens of pics from the Ocean City, MD Corvette show this weekend*****

Seeking advice on becoming a Corvette owner

I'm a newbie to this site, looking for advice as I prepare to follow through in the next few months on a lifelong goal to own a Corvette. What I'm looking for from the experts here is advice to help me get what fits me best. I love the 1968-72 Corvette, but I'm leaning toward a C5 because, from what I've been able to determine so far, it's a good mix of fairly modern technology with affordability. In other words, I'm looking for a comfortable and reliable car, and don't have a ton of money to...
