Default I love your Corvette

Young guy, maybe 12 years old driving by on his bike and yelled at me "I love your Corvette". I guess I am still not use to getting such compliments from strangers, it never gets old hearing compliments.

I have had plenty of comments from the fairer sex. The funniest that I remember was when this great looking gal told me her and her husband were talking about trading places for a night. If I let her husband take the Vette for a night, I could have her for the night. I didn't think my wife would like that, I had to decline.

I remember when the Z was brand new & a car pulled up next to me. two guys were in the front a two gals in the back. the gal nearest me took her tongue & rolled it around on her chin while rolling her eyes. that little move spoke volumes without ever saying a word.

I would say the message was quite clear.

I should have bought a Vette when I was young and single.

Gotta love kids and Corvettes.
I took my 6 year old cousin for a ride with the top off, after I accelerated hard he said, "When I grow up I'm getting one of these and a motorcycle." I told him that was my plan also.

Mofo, you still haven't taken me for a spin. I'm a kid at heart

Oh wait, that's right, I have to shave my legs.

I still have an old rusty razor available if you want to use it.
