About

This is my third Corvette, frist was silver 1964 Coupe, a black 1980
This Vette was payment of back child support, my Dad never paid when I was young. My mother and father divorced when I was twelve, he did not come around much and moved on to another family.

After about thirty years he moved back here when his wife died. He still was not much in the way of a father, So one day I went and told him how I felt. The end result was, he said please take the car and consider it payment for "back child support". So I did. This one I will keep!
