Are You Ready for a Red Corvette?



Since the first Corvette rolled off the assembly line in 1953, it has starred in TV shows, such as “Route 66,” received mention in songs (Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Prince) and is glorified in it’s very own museum. It has become a legend as the only American sports car, with a large following of enthusiastic owners and fans.

    I had to get a bucket to catch my drools while looking at the photo. I’m in the 15-20 zone. Always wanted one. Bank account keeps saying no. I used to date a guy with a red t-top ‘vette. I had to beg for a ride in it. I guess he didn’t want to let the peasants share the pleasure. sd
