I can usually start a conversation like I’d bet your not Married ! NO ! How’d you guess ! Well most women wouldn’t stay around with this attention to detail, to another love ! My first glance in a walk through, you, at least to me you! have the overall winner, so the wish is Good Luck ! One thing I’m doing today is getting permission to take close up pictures, and I know from personal experience, I’d get hit over my head with my tripod If I were to touch this one, all the badges, lamp lens and signature script are remarkably in excellent shape, I say this because having owned seven vettes myself there is no visible aging, in addition my father in law, used to own and run an electroplating business, until the market went soft in chrome, I opend up my camera case and handed him my calling card, one of those 4 X 6 family photo albums, each picture he looked up and asked questions, halfway thru he said your really professionally gifted ! Thanks, but I’m not here other than to ask permission to take pictures of your , as I’m impressed to say, the best looking vehicle in the parking lot ! and that includes the exotics, parked next to his was a Lotus, about that time the lotus owner showed up, and got treated to the photo album, I figured they knew each other, I mentioned my name and asked for his, Ok paul what ever you need, say the word, well Eric may I request you lowering the trunk, Done and three pictured, then he followed me around his beautiful 1960 corvette, showing 72 K miles, about 30 minutes spent, then he offered me his card, and mentioned that he had received invitation to enter his " 60 " in a By Invitation ONLY, Concourse in September, also he invited me to view the show, and would provide specifics when, and where, so Thanks Eric, my privilige to get up close, for your kindness, no charge, I’d appreciate offering, an 8×11 suitable for framing picture of your Love when next we met ! This picture special attention spent, for I’ve painlessly removed all other vehicles, parking stripes found on most parking lots and then fine tuned other unwanted clutter. in my estimation, it was a certifiable Gold Class Restoration, due to the windy conditions, I heard his name and year of the car mentioned over the PA. system, but was not so close to have heard why ! BTW I was right, he used his T-shirt bottom to close the driver door for this picture ! Olympus Moments, E-510 W/14-45 mm Zuiko lens, Polarization C-PL Tripod, and a Smile. Albuquerque, New Mexico USA, Fathers Day 2011.

    GREAT SHOT!! The ‘57 model is my absolute dream car! But I certainly wouldn’t turn this down if it was delivered to my driveway!!

  • My best shot, Let Ron enjoy his dream! but if you want a little insite the RB mail is open ! someone shared with me so long ago, A dream is but a dream without action ! I recommend all should live out thier dreams, the driveway part, that was a good dream also ! in reminising, 1971 plain jane ! drive home $ 5,895 Todays Dollar $ 50,895, that’s when zero’s count ! 70’s waterpump $ 22.00 today $ 191.00 it’s a numbers game but it is made for the most part in USA, or close by ! paul
