Tom C.’s 1963 Split Window Coupe

I was 19 years old when I purchased a used 1963 Split Window coupe from the local Buick dealership in Hayward, CA for $2,000. Silver w/Black interior with factory Fuel Injection. Kept it for 3 years & sold it when I got married.

In 1998, I got back into the hobby by purchasing a 1967 convertible, Silver w/Black interior which I presently own & drive occasionally. Proudly serviced as needed by the team at Corvette Mike.

Comic of the Week

Some random thoughts

I was born in very sorry circumstances. Both of my parents were very sorry.

I am certain there is too much certainty in the world.

It is easy for me to love myself, but for ladies to do it is another question altogether.
