About “SmokeGray”

I'm the second owner. I've owned it since 8/94. I always wanted a corvette and it took a few years to finally get this one. On the day I went to the dealer to take it for a drive on their test track it was only the second Corvette I had ever driven, I drove one a few weeks before that. Since I was selling my 69 Camaro and it was going to be my everyday car and my wife Jennie would have to drive it she needed to see how it felt. I had pulled over and she asked what was wrong and I told her she would have to do her own test drive because she had to make sure she felt OK driving it since it would be our second car. She was very reluctant to drive it, but finally agreed to take it around the test track. We didn't even get 25 yards with her driving when she said in a loud voice I like this, I really like this, and I knew I was finally going to get my Corvette.
I was lucky enough to have my Corvette in the April 2006 issue of Vette Magazine in a story about the Corvette Challenge Drag Racing series.
