I don't fit real well either!

Every time I do take the 67 for a ride, it's easy to get over the fact that more room would be nice!

Last Birthday Bash we attended was the one in 2014. We had just ordered our 2015, Shark Gray - a new for 2015 color that I had never seen in person. Wanted to be certain I wasn't making a mistake; there was to be a Shark Gray C7 on display during the Bash.

Last time I was at the museum was a few months later - August (?) 2014; met Woody Spillers there. We both watched our C7's roll down the assembly line at the factory. It was me, Yvonne, Woody, Keith, and Greg (Corvette owner in Indiana). Great time, really enjoyed being at the factory watching our new Corvettes roll down the assembly line.

Still sad about losing Woody...

I thought about Woody just the other day when I saw a mention of the Coshocton Corvette Show. I remember meeting Woody there, sometime around 2001 or so.

Wish I could. I've been saying No to trips and outings for almost four years now. Soon, very soon, the sacrifice and saving will have it's reward.
I'll post the results when the time comes.
