Well i was 33 or 34 when i bought my first vette. Still have it. My first drive in one was when i was 17 and gave a big story to the dealer so i could test drive one of them The sales lady had to go with me and she was kinda hot.

I was a young one at 20! My father bought it for me and we actually shared the car for several years! It was the greatest thing in the world to be driving around in a Vette when all your friends were in junkers!

24. It has been a bit of a headache, but the end is in sight. There is not much more that I could possibly replace to get it to run right.

Yo King, I was 21 and just out of the Navy in 1960 and bought a repossed 57 w/hardtop from a bank for $500. w/bad transmission and resold for $900 thought I had made a killing, one saturday at midnight 6months later a drunk was pounding on my door looking for that $900 57 Vet, musta been topic of conversation that night at the local bucket of blood. I still chuckle thinking of that night 48 years ago. Today at a fit 68 yrs of age we are on our 11th Corvette,C-1s,C2s,C3s, and today a Silver 84 all have been fun but not without with a few trying times along the way. In the 60's when muscle cars w/exhausts sounding like an "elephant breaking wind up a drain pipe", we torn up our share of these "BEASTS". Still enjoy making the 84 squat and go!!!

24 Its not my first project, but its the most challenging. I tend to be overambitious sometimes.
