Head of Corvette Development. I'd make you a car that you would all love and only a few could afford. :blush:

Test driving and product evaluation of new models. I'd love to have first hand input into what the final product looks like.

Using someone else's bankroll to search, buy, and drive collector cars for a museum or personal collection. Travel all over the world, drive on famous tracks, all of history's coolest cars, including new cars & high end models, all your expenses paid, great carshow parties, races, etc...somebody stop me.

After working hard since i was 16 and owning many Vettes and muscle cars back in the 60's and 70's. I retired early and get to drive my Z and my newly purchased 75 Vert. MY Brother and I also just purchased a 70 Baldwin Motion L88 Nova that is going thru a frame off. I think have i have the perfect job, sleep till noon, go for a swim and drive my Vettes. Plus, living in FL. for 20 years, i get to enjoy them year round. I'm my own boss, pay is good, and can't beat the sick days or vacation time.:lol:

I'd take a job at Car and Driver/Motor Trend etc---Playing with cars for a living...and writing you impressions. Well, the writing may be a pain, but trashing someone elses car to do a "story"---does it get any better than that?

Outside of a racing career, I'd love to work for a magazine or be a factory test driver for Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini or one of the other sports car manufacturer's.

Being a factory driver, you don't have to water down anything for the sake of the advertisers if you don't like something. Well.. Unless you worked for Top Gear.

Working at a private race track and getting rides in Carerra GT's and Lotus's while getting freebies from the manufacturers on top of seeing cars like real-deal Shelby Cobra's signed by the man himself to Champ Cars testing. And yes, this is what my job involves as an EMT and a corner worker at a private race track in Joliet, IL.

I love great cars, but women come first. I want to drive the Playboy bus.

Factory test driver for Ferrari. It would give you the chance to master a few courses and tracks. Then apply that knowledge and skill to the worlds finest performance automobiles.
