About “Dad's Corvette”

First, I have to say THIS IS NOT A PICTURE OF THE ACTUAL CAR! A friend had this picture posted in a car show album, but it looks nearly identical to the way Dad's car did (except that Dad's car had a hood scoop and a white stripe) before it was destroyed in a house fire when I was about 7 years old.

This is the car that started my interest in cars in the first place. I'd lie on my back under the car with him and try to help with whatever he was doing with it. He had me hand tools to him (usually, the WRONG tools!), but ha wouldn't let me actually do any of the mechanical work. I did help him keep it clean, washing the sides and dusting the interior.

About “Stang”

I got this car used back in 2004 with 17,000 miles on her. she was a beauty and still is. She has changed much through the past couple of years and still has many changes left to her. She is a work in progress and keeps getting quicker and quicker. In the straights and turns that is. I love running the Gap with her and also taking her to the track. I have done most of the major work to her

LS WHAT?

 

Specs for “Dad's Corvette”

To the best of my memory, it had the usual Corvette stuff:
V-8, 4-speed stick, AM/FM radio, etc. As far as 0-60 and 1/4 mile times go, I didn't care! All I know is it was the most thrilling ride a young girl could have ever asked for. After this Vette, no car with a solid roof would do for me!
