Default Ordinary Coupe

I was heading to work and stopped at a store and noticed a Black Z06 cruise by while I was in the store. When I came out the black Z06 was parked maybe 20 feet way from my Vette and this guy was walking towards the store. I asked if the Z06 was his, he said yes and I pointed towards my Vette and said it was mine. We chatted for a minute or so and he asked me if my Vette was an ordinary coupe. I laughed and said if a supercharged coupe is considered ordinary then yes and we parted ways.

I have a Z06 widebody (back only) to cover my 345’s, LS3 emblems on the front fenders, Z06 reproduction wheels, painted red calipers, so I guess I am considered a poser by some Z06 guys. I would have bought a Z06 if they had automatic tranny (beer story to explain why).

I don’t know this guy and don’t know what he really meant by the “ordinary coupe” remark, but this isn’t the first time I have had a Z06 guy make a comment like this to me. I have only been in a Vette for two years but I am seeing there is a big difference between a Corvette owner and Corvette enthusiast.

Has any other “ordinary coupe” folks had comments from other Vette owners that seemed funny or strange?
