Carl has been a Corvette owner for over 60 Years
I have been a corvette owner for 60 years. I bought my first one when I was 18 0r 19 years old, it was a 1962 fulie, fawn beige. I have also owned 1981, 1989, 2002, 2014, and currently own a 2019 Stingray convertible, yellow with black trim. The only one that I am missing is a C2. In a couple of years I plan to get a new C8!

What Mike Likes about this Corvette:
“The excitement that builds around the Indianapolis 500 every year during Memorial Day weekend creates an adrenaline pumping feeling in most race car fans throughout the world. We are excited to offer this 2008 factory produced replica of the Indy 500 Pace Car one of only 234 coupes made with the Z4Z option code.
This remarkable example only has 2,000 original miles on it and came from a very good collector client of ours.
Share the excitement of next month’s race by cruising around in this very limited-edition Pace Car.
The first time the Corvette paced the race in Indianapolis was in 1978 that was the year that I bought my first Corvette and the bug bit me hard. Hard enough to create a company that was sort of, A Dream, Corvette Mike.
The Pace Car than was silver and black two tone and sold for tens of thousands of dollars over sticker price for the first time in Corvette history. Keep in mind it was also the 25th Anniversary of the Corvette Rolling off the assembly line in Flint Michigan in June 1953.
It’s time to celebrate the upcoming Indianapolis 500 where fans will be able to enjoy the race live once again and you can cruise around Memorial Day weekend in your hometown with a big smile on your face with a burger and hotdog on the console with the Pepsi in your hand!
God bless America!”

This Pace Car Factory Replica (#399 of 500) is as nice of an example as you will see! It’s just about “in the wrapper” with only 2k miles on the odometer! It came out of a private collection of a good client of ours. He took meticulous care of it and always did the recommended services on the car.

There are so many items in the Corvette-themed collection that he changed the way Guinness World Records classifies car collecting. Anyone can go on a giant shopping spree and buy a bunch of cars, Mallon said, but accumulating over 2,000 unique examples would take years. Eventually Guinness created a new category for “Corvette items,” and in 2012, Charles was awarded the world record.
