I’m 49, when should I start watching for this Mid Life Crisis? Do they always involve a Corvette?
I was in my 50’s when I had the two I owned. If that’s midlife, I’ll take it!
Always better to ask forgiveness than permission
Check out the special thanks section on the car show sign for my Outlaw clone
No, I can tell you from personal experience that midlife crises do not always involve a corvette. The list of cars involved in midlife crises is almost endless...
Some of them involve trading in the wife for a fresher model with less miles
Its like Iron Maiden at 8 grand.
Mine involved a married busty and lusty blonde that I was not married to...
Yeah, that’s not going to happen. It’s less expensive and hazardous to buy a Corvette.
I bought my Corvette when I was 50, does that mean I am going to live to be 100???
No. Go put me in your will.
I gotta live to be 124 for this to be a real mid-life car, I guess.
There’s a Jiminy Cricket song echoing in my head for some reason now.
And if you are really dumb your midlife crisis involved a new Fiero.
Lol! I was 20 when I had my first one which was about my life expectancy at the time. Hard not to buy a $2500 corvette when I could even though it was a major project...
Some go out and buy a $30,000 Harley...and a $1000+ cosplay outfit.
what are these new little slicks you speak of?
True, there are about 500K of them running around here right now
M H 26x6
I'll have to get a picture of them. Pretty small...but will fit in the spare tire well, unlike the Plan II slicks.
How much shorter are those to the cruiser’s?
slicks mounted. A tiny bit larger than the small front tires...and the stock steel wheels just clear the rear calipers.
A couple inches shorter, but still look sort of OK.
Just remember , theres no warrantee on that Muncie
Pirates of the Coffee Shop. Probably have "Get Back" whips on their front brake levers.
"Snakeskin Cowboys, who the Hell do you think you are?"
All in all, I'd do it again in a flash if something that good came up. And guys get hot over barn finds...
I never thought I'd see 30... let alone 68. Cars were real cheap, but most of us made a lot less that many years back.
I have 6 Harleys and ride them constantly, but I refuse to dress like that!
