1972 Chevy Corvette C3 Coupe
This is a photo of my baby, a '72 Corvette with an original 350 engine and Turbo-400 trans. It had 72,000 original miles when I bought it six years ago. Since then, I've entered it in more than 15 shows, and it usually gets First or Second Place. The owner before me sold it because his wife wanted an in-ground swimming pool. I think I got the better deal. I'm 66 years old and worked very hard to get this toy. I worked for a trash company and would recycle all the aluminum that people threw away-storm doors, windows, whatever. It took me 10 years, but I don't regret it. This Corvette is not only a head turner-it's a heart stopper.
