Corvettes are Cool!

Snapshot Stories

Open the first photo album you can find — real or virtual, your call — and stop at the first picture of yourself you see there . Tell us the story of that photo.



Terry had wanted a Corvette as long as he could remember.  It was always out of our reach financially, but still, it was his dream. One day about five years ago, he heard about a ‘Vette that had been sitting in a barn most of its life, and the owner was selling it for a song. So he contacted the man, and I won’t bore you with the details, but we got our Corvette.

This picture was taken in the previous owner’s business yard the day we went to get the car.  It’s a 1985, and it had only 8000 miles on it.  Needed a paint job, but other than that it was in great shape. We love it.  We take it out only when the weather is good, and our grandkids enjoy getting a ride whenever we take the car down to their house. We’ve also enjoyed the connection with other ‘Vette owners, who always give each other a friendly wave when we cross paths on the road.

There’s just something about a Corvette  🙂

    That brought back memories of childhood…the smell of car wax from helping my Dad wax his Corvette, taking yet another picture with it, then going for a ride with one mellow 8 track tape playing or another…John Denver…Anne Murray 🙂

    You’re going to make me want to start saving up for one…maybe a graduation gift for when the kids graduate…for myself 😉

  2. My dad bought a customized Corvette all to his specifications, like he’s got a late, late, late midlife crisis thing going on. I think my mom would’ve hated it. Still, the grandkids love the heck out of it.
