The Corvette Show

The 1971 Corvette Roadster was the only one with a fender grill in this style.

There we were ready to go.  He wore his genuine Chevy windbreaker and route 66 shirt, I in gobs of turquoise with my Mickey Mouse team jacket.  Everyone else was just about as casual. 

1963 Sting Ray Coupe of interest for it’s split rear window design.

The 1959 Coupe sported dual headlights, and this one traveled the whole of Route 66.

This modified 2004 is the owners frequent driver.  He installed twin turbochargers in the back instead of under the hood.

We took Grumpy, who was way too new to be of any interest, arrived in time, and had a ball.

In back of the red 1959 interior is a 1964 Coupe.
We ate sliders, we wallowed in root beer floats, and we talked with Corvette owners for two solid hours.  We squose in lots of photography getting shots of the description, the badging, fronts, backs, and insides.  I have to admit that we had fun.

1954 Wheel.  Now this is a tire.

Hidden in back, waiting to come on stage, is Doc Hudson.

Center stage throughout was Captain Poolie, director.  Bravo for a job well done.

I hope you all will enjoy this lovely fleet.  I’ll show you more of it later.


Life is Really in the Footnotes:
  Worked hard and talked hard too.
  • Herself:  One of my coworkers at the store has breast cancer, and I am quite upset.  A relitive has the same thing, and I worry about her daily.  They are in my prayers.  Tomorrow El Cajon for more house clearing out.
  • Reading:  Two left.
  • Balance:  >Being with G today.

    5. Those cars remind me of a time when cars simply meant freedom and we had no knowledge of what their emissions were doing to our planet. I don't usually hanker for the "good old days" but sometimes that happy ignorance would be nice.
