    Bob & Sandy Morse

    It started with a lucky bottle of whiskey. I'm not a drinker, so let me explain. In 1969, I was invited by a friend to attend a Corvette meeting. I didn't own a Corvette at that time. While attending this meeting, I won the door prize: a bottle of whiskey, which I gave to my friend. Gratefully he offered, "I have a Corvette in my garage.

    Joe Guerriero

    It took a while, but I finally found the exact Corvette I wanted. It is a 1969 convertible with a stick transmission and the L46 engine. I fully enjoy the car, but it's not a daily driver. So, in 2006 when I turned 50, I decided to add another Corvette to the garage. I purchased a 2006 coupe with the same color combination of red on black that I have with the 1969.

  • Bossa Nova

    Ron McCormick

    Sure, I was looking at them by the time I was nine. But I think I really started noticing Corvettes when I was 11 years old. I didn’t know what was happening at the time but, thinking back to that day, I do now. It was love. True love.
