I have always loved the looks of a Corvette and hoped to own one someday, especially when I saw the Mako shark concept Corvette at the Henry Ford museum.
When I was in the Navy one of my friends ,had a Corvette and we would occasionally go for a drive in it. That made me want one even more. Then in 1968 the Tigers made it to the World Series and I made myself a promise that if they won I would buy a new 1968, yellow convertible. Of course they won so I had to keep that promise.
It only took 45 years to do it though, and only because my friend and club member Tom Stoner let me drive his C6 convertible. After that it is all history.
With Tom's help I found my car at a dealership in Ohio. So I went to Underwood Chevy in Clinton and talked to the salesman and had the car in a few days. August 1 was the day I picked my car up from the dealership and happened to be the same day as the Brecon Village mini car show. Tom suggested that I stop by so that he could see my car, so I did and he surprised me with a birthday gift of my first years membership. Not only did I get my first Corvette that day but a lot of wonderful new friends. Linda and I have enjoyed all the benefits that the club has to offer.
