That's a pretty convincing sales-pitch 07silvervette17, and I (we) definitely will keep it in mind! :coolgleam:
Long weekends are always a bitch for getting-off-and- back-on the island. Ferry line-ups are unbelievable! So at this time I can't say yea or nay for sure. But it is a possibility.
Just a thought and comment regarding Okanagan Crime: In the summer of '07, Mrs.X-SPAN and I toured the Okanagan area in our C6. We visited a friend in Cawston (he has acres of old cars : lots of A's and T's. I don't want to publish his name but no doubt every gearhead in the Ok Valley knows who I'm talking about!), and stayed overnight. Always safe, always good, no problem!
The next night we met up with some V.Island friends in Penticton and spent that night at a motel. The next morning I discovered the rubber molding on the bottom of both door windows folded in where a "slim-jim" had been inserted. Thankfully there was no permanent damage. But I was rattled just the same.
I didn't have wheel locks so I was gratefull to see the car still had wheels!
We continued north through Kelowna, Vernon, and Kamloops and spent the next night in Lillooet. I can't think of any other place(well, maybe home is still best) where I've felt safer or more comfortable for the night than in good old Lillooet. :seeya:
BTW, the stretch of Hiway 99 beginning just outside of Clinton, BC, and heading west through Lillooet then on to Pemberton and finally to Whistler is more fun than a roller-coaster....especially in a Corvette!
