VP Joe Biden Prefers a Corvette Z06 Over the Presidency

Presidents aren't allowed to drive themselves.

Believe it or not, the next US presidential election isn’t too far off and potential candidates to replace the current job holder are already beginning to line up. Vice President Joe Biden has long made it known that he’d love to have the top job one day, but it turns out that something more important may be getting in the way of that. Seriously, what could possibly be bigger than being President of the United States? A brand-new Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Seriously. No joke.

When Biden was at the Detroit Auto Show last month, he took particular interest in the new Z06. As the owner of a 1967 Corvette that the Secret Service forbids him to drive for security reasons, Biden sounded anxious to get behind the wheel again. Everyone wants to know whether or not I’m going to run for president," Biden said. "There’s a lot of reasons to run for president, but there’s one overwhelming reason not to run for president. I’d like to get that Z06 with 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. 3.4 seconds! You tach that sucker up to six grand and this comes out of the hole like a bullet, man." Some things are just more important than being the most powerful person on the planet.
