That's a beautiful car, but I wouldn't want something like that because of the care they need. I'd worry about every tiny ding. Back in the sixties, I had a big Pontiac and was parallel parking between two cars, one behind me being a Corvette. I was very cautious, and came within an inch of touching it, but parked safely. Some guy came running out of a store and started screaming that I almost hit his car, that he paid over $20,000K for it. I yelled back that only an idiot would parallel park a car that expensive.

~LOL~ my first husband and I always had a Corvette.  One day as I was getting ready to turn at a light to go into our company parking lot the car died for some reason and someone we knew who was behind me at the light gave me a "push" with his car into the parking lot - then proceeded to tell my husband about it... whoaaaaaaaaaaa was he angry that I had not physically pushed the car instead of allowing this guy to push me with his vehicle ~LOL~........  I sure did like how fast those cars accelerated, I'll tell you that!  I always had a lead foot.

And now you drive a behemoth of an SUV? How the mighty have fallen...or have become more intimidating.

My brother-in-law has one, and only he is allowed to drive it. He keeps it covered in the garage when he isn't driving it. That's his baby!

Yep... SUV... with the big engine no less... needed it to pull our boat...  we also had a 280Z bought new in 1977 - I sold it three years ago... it was a go-fast car, too... and BTW the Suburban accellerates quite nicely... good thing for cruise control.

I like the go fast part but can do without feeling like I'm bumping my butt on the road every time I hit a pebble on the hiway!

I get the same bumping in the SUV as I had in the sport cars.  Both stiff suspension.

But I doubt your rear end is as close to the ground in that SUV as was in the Corvette!
