Biden Misses His 1967 Green Corvette

There’s nothing worse than having a thrilling ride and not being able to drive it. Take Vice President Joe Biden for example – a proud owner of his beloved 1967 green Corvette.

“The Secret Service won’t let me drive it. I’m not allowed to drive anything. It’s the one thing I hate about this job. I’m serious,” says Biden in a recent Car and Driver Magazine interview.

As the son of a car salesman who sold Chryslers and Fords, Biden has always shared a passion for vehicles. In fact, he remarked about test-driving his brother’s 556-hp Cadillac.

“He brought it down for me to eat my heart out,” said Biden. “So I got in. I have a driveway that’s about 1,700 feet long. I knew the Secret Service wouldn’t let me drive it outside. So I jumped on that sucker and laid rubber.  A great feeling…”

Sounds like our kind of guy.
