Hook a trailer on the 'vette to equal the weight of the Aspire and see what the numbers are. LOL

The 'vette will get you there quicker but you will enjoy the journey much more in the Aspire. Best of both worlds is to make the 'vette into a toad for the Aspire!!

Happy camping.

Sold ours and bought a new 2010 Acadia as a toad....tons of fun! There are times when we see a beautiful C6 go by and think - naahhhh!! Love the Acadia and the 2012 Discovery combination! Don't look back...something may be gaining on ya.

Yes...selling the Vette. Owned one since 1996, but it is time to move on to younger things...like full-timing and shedding the stress!!!

I have a vette and a wrangler. Neither one wants the toad job. So the smart car will probably get the honors. It looks to me like, being drug around on the back bumper of a semi truck can't be a real glamerous life. Can't blame and won't make my vette or the wrangle bow to such a lowly life. Good job for a smart car.

Good choice! You can't cook dinner or take a shower in the 'Vette.

My '67 Camaro did 11.99 @ 133 street tires and street legal through the mufflers. Never did get a 0-60 time on it

Had a '59, '62, '73 and a '79, loved them all and tons of fun! Times have changed a bit and we love our class A. We still take 2 Harleys as our towd to keep the adreneline flowing
