About “My Baby”

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.

About “"The Z"”

Its a 1986 Z28 Camaro. Im the second owner of the Z. The car has original 305 with 77,000 original miles. The car was bought of the showroom floor in 85'. The car was repainted in 1993. Was bone stock when I bought the Z, I put Cragar wheels, BF Goodwrinch tires, B&M Megashifter with shift kit, K&N CAI, tinted windows,Hypertech Pefformance chip and put Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust on the Z (no cats). I plan on having this Z awhile, want to experience and enjoy many memories with the Z.
