1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (My Baby)
Last updated Feb 28, 2007
I joined the Army and used the sign on bonus to buy the Vette. The original owners were an elderly couple who only drove it to car shows and cruises. When the husband's wife passed away from cancer, he locked it up for two years until he eventually sold it to my uncles friend who collects corvettes. His collection includes about 12 corvettes, 5 are Stingrays. I bought the Vette from him and I often go to his ranch to admire all of them lined up in a row. I enjoy cleaning her, driving her with the tops down, and racing her.
