2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: No Hail Marys Necessary

September 22, 2010

I rolled in our long-term 2002 Chevy Corvette Z06 for the first time last night. Yeah, no surprise, it looked and felt dated and smelled like an old sneaker. But it wasn't as bad as I thought, and it drove fine.

Another surprise was the rear visibility, which I feared was going to be horrible. It's not.

You see, when I would back up our dearly departed long-term Dodge Challenger R/T or our Dodge Viper, it wasn't something I would look forward to. The C pillars on the Challenger are particularly thick. My strategy was to go slowly while whispering a couple of Hail Marys, hoping someone wouldn't nail me.

With the notchback Corvette's slim rear pillars and expansive rear glass, you need not worry.

Hail Marys aren't necessary.
