August Car of the Month


Well, I guess looking back there were 4 initial causes that made me become a Corvette nut. The first one was when while in high school ,I watched a 1961 Vette smoke a brand new jaguar XKE on York Road right north of Jenkintown. Then a couple of years later,while in the Army, my best buddy invited me to ride with him from Ft. Belvoir, VA to Boston, MA on a warm Friday night. What a ride in a '63, 340 horse roadster with the top off. I knew then that some day I had to get a Corvette. Then later, in the 70's I worked with a guy who owned a 76 blue coupe. He would take a month off every other summer and drive out to California or Arizona and all over the country with his wife. Then in 85 he bought a C4 and stopped at my house the next day and let me drive it. The final straw was when Nancy and I were still dating ,I took my car to be serviced in Doylestown. There was a used C5 on the lot. I asked the annoying salesman if I could drive it. He said sure. I then called Nancy and asked her to come up and ride with me. That was it! I had to have one! I soon ordered my 99. Joined the club in 2000 and then later ordered our C6 from Bryner's and never looked back. Took a while, and a lot of grief in between,but, we did it. Nancy & Mike

It's a BEAUTY Mike! GREAT color.

I still think you should have added my 71 to your stable for the Challenge Races

As far as the C6 versus the C5,let me put it this way. My 99 was the best car I ever owned, until we got the C6! I wondered how Chevrolet could really make the car better, but, they did. It's not a revolutionary jump,but,in almost every single aspect the car is improved and in some areas it's by a mile.

Tom, you obviously recognize the weeds across the street!

It's not that I really like your Vette but are you ready to trade it even up for a slightly used '76?? Just kidding!!!!
That Corvette is a genuine BEAUTY!! Enjoy it!
