Are you bed ridden? No legs? Can't afford the gas?
What reason would you keep a vette, that you didn't drive?
Driving a vette, is like sex, if you don't do it, you will rot away. :)

got to agree, 1000 miles/yr? damn! drive that car son..... anyway, its yours ,do what you like..now, if the car is stored in climate control, I wouldn t change it for 2-3 years with synthetic.. if its stored outside,in wide temp swings, once a year at beginning of driving season

Only 1000 a year I would use synthetic oil and only change it once a year
I agree, but there's more ...

when temps and humidity swing from below freezing to above 90* you have condensation in everything.. fuel tank, oil pan etc..unless you live in a desert.. its the moisture you want to shed.,it causes corrosion ..the oil itself doesn t go bad for many years .. driving the car regularly gets rid of the moisture when the oil gets up to 210* ..climate controlled storage, has very low humidity...but as always, that's my opinion, its your car, do as you like ... I try to drive both of mine every week year round

1000 miles

I'll stick up for only driving it 1000 miles a year. I work 4.2 miles from home. Maybe I go 1000 or less. no rain or snow. But I have a Harley too. So I guess I have a threesome if driving a vette is like sex. So is riding a Harley.

Tops down and enjoy the summer all

Seafoam was designed to combat moisture in Marine engines fuel tanks .. works well for storing Corvettes
