About “Baby Blue”

This was my daily driver, until my husband decided he wanted a 2010 Camaro SS/RS so we traded! This car was owned by the daughter of 2 of my best friends, who are the biggest Corvette fanatics I know (right now they have 4: a 74 Stingray, an 07 Z06, a 94 ZR1 and a 93 ZR1). My friends were responsible for all the maintenance since 1998, so I know it has been pampered!!. Anyway, the daughter had a baby and the car had to go. So Baby Blue came to live with us a couple of months ago with only 81,000 miles. My husband has a 91 Quasar Blue Metallic Vette that I drove whenever I could, so when this one came on the market I had to have it. Can't let the hubby get one up on me, can I? And I've got to look good at the grocery store!! So now I just go in his car!

About “My Baby”

I lived and worked in the Washington, D.C. area until 2000 when I moved to Myrtle Beach, SC. My car was delivered new to Bethesda, MD in the summer of 1989. The car had four owners, all in the D.C. suburbs, before being sent to Myrtle Beach, SC. I found the car in Nov. of 2000. It must have been our destiny to be together.
