It's raining? No problem; once you're moving at speed, the showering blast from above will be obliterated by the car's own jetstream. Snowing?

    Best looking vette? C5/C6/C7

    I have grown accustomed to the look of the C7 and now prefer it over the other two. Old school Vette would have to be a '68 for me.
