This car is not
special in terms of milestone Corvettes. It's not an Anniversary
Edition or a Pace Car, and it's not low miles or even perfectly
original. This car is special because it was my first Corvette.
I always loved Corvettes. Partially because my dad had several
of them in the past, but primarily because it defined, for me,
the ultimate car.
I never wanted to have
a Corvette as a daily driver. So it took me forever to get the
point where I could afford a second car. And I will never forget
the day, August 26th 1996, when I brought home my first new "used"
Corvette. Since then, this is the car I drove away at my wedding,
it has been there with my kids even as tiny tots, and I will never sell it.
