Should you buy a Corvette?

Should you buy a Corvette?

How rational are people when they are choosing a car, what do you think? Do they weigh every option, compare utility? Or is the decision more of a gut feeling? Let me give you a hint: emotions play a bigger role than we think!

Though almost every car purchase involves some sort of emotions, there are two segments that ilicit the strongest ones: sports cars and classics. And interestingly enough, the Corvette can be both at the same time. But is it worth it?

Is it worth to buy a Corvette?

We should first acknowledge this: the question has less to do with logic and more to do with desire. Whether you want a brand new Vette or a classic, it plays at your heartstrings!

Let’s first see the classic option. Vintage cars have a special tug on our emotions for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they are unique, as they don’t make such cars anymore. Secondly, in a way they define you. Why? Well, if you have a classic, you are an enthusiast, not just a driver. You have a special connection to your car that most people don’t. And it means something to you!

Chevrolet Corvette is probably one of the few models that have achieved a genuinely strong and distinctive connection to people from all over the world. Psychologist Charles Kenny has explored this. He believe that unlike other brands, the distinctive character of the model gives more to its owner than just a classic sports car.

So to answer the question of whether it is worth it, we should see why you would buy one in the first place!

Why do people love Chevrolet Corvette?

According to Kenny, buyers of Corvette models seek power and control. Instead of recognition, they would rather make a statement of their strength and authority.

Another distinctive feature of Corvette owners is the desire for immortality: theirs and the car’s. People do not consider a Corvette as the best investment, yet that does not stop many from buying it. Because it is not about being rational, but about… a desire, and even an ideal. Also, if one buys a new Corvette, he is very likely to keep the old one too.

Even if you get a classic Vette, do not do it to show off like you would with most other sports cars. The Corvette is for people who have grown beyond the impulses; people who have reached a stage in their character development when they don’t act on a whim anymore. It is about character and independence, not about an ego boost.

What is it like to own a Corvette?

The Corvette makes its driver believe they are truly in control. It’s no surprise the Corvette is one of the few models that have retained their symbolic meaning to people throughout the years.

Brands like Mustang, Buick, or the Cadillac have altered their own image over the decades and now carry different symbolism. Even Chevy’s own Camaro barely resembles its older self. Yet the Vette has remained what many call “a true brand” – a brand with an immortal spirit. So owners of both the new and the old Corvettes share a connection, regardless of their generation.

Of course, this is a bit idealistic. Some people buy Corvettes to show off, sure. However, I would argue that does not apply to most. Many enjoy the speed, but they do not necessarily enjoy speeding. They can hit the racetrack for adrenaline and still enjoy their Chevy on the interstate.

Because ultimately, the Corvette is not just a car, it is an experience. And if you want to take part in it, read this: How to choose a Corvette!

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
