I purchased my first Corvette when I retired 10 years ago. It was a black 1995 coupe with a black interior. It had a few blemishes and enough wrong with it that I could do a little wrenching on it to occupy my time. I did thoroughly enjoy it and took it to several Black Hills Corvette Classic Rallies in my home state of South Dakota. During the summer of Covid (2020) I found this beautify LeMans blue metallic 2007 convertible. Owning a convertible was on my bucket list and as I am not getting any younger I dropped the hammer and traded up. My wife loves the car too and we have taken it to several Black Hills Corvette Rallies since then. This picture was taken on the way to the last rally on a side trip through the Badlands National Park in western South Dakota.
