Guys,
On or about March 5, 1966 I ordered from Indian River Chevrolet, Cocoa, Florida a Corvette coupe I believed I would never be able to pay for or keep. Turns out I did both. Fifty years of ownership is not a record, I know a man in California who kept his '63 all these years and a gentleman in Santa Fe, NM (now deceased) who bought a 1956 Corvette new and kept it until his death about four years ago.
My Corvette now has over 130K miles on it and I will be driving it from the Albuquerque area next month to Corvette Homecoming in Bowling Green, KY. total mileage for this trip will be around 3000, car does not have A/C.
Let's hear from the others on this DB who are original owners. Back to the garage! Bill

That's pretty cool. BG should be fun.

Here's my friend Dick. When he leaves a car show he lights 'em up.
