I was 12 years old sitting on my familys’ front porch and a brand new 1958 blue Corvette slowly passed by. It was a hot rod neighbours’ new car and the hood was not on it. I could see 6 small chrome breathers on the engine. Turned out, he had just put 6 two barrel carburetors on it and was testing it. I was hooked!

I bought my first Corvette in 1967. It was a 1965 Convertible (396-425, triple black, sidepipes, hard top, leather interior) with 2 months factory warranty remaining.

I have had Corvettes ever since. I am now on my seventh Corvette, a C8 HTC Z51. I have modified it to my taste. Lowered, aftermarket exhaust, aftermarket 20 & 21″ wheels and tires, debadged, x drilled/slotted brake rotors, grill guards, and more.

My C7 was going to be my last car, then the mid engine came along. This one’s a keeper..

Some random thoughts

I can resist everything except temptation.

We are all here on earth to help others; what on earth the others are here for I don’t know.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.
