Gotta Love a Corvette!

I don’t know what year it is and I don’t know who it belongs to, but when I saw it parked on a nearby street I  paused to appreciate it.  Yes, the Chevy Corvette is a special car and has been since in first hit the road in 1953.  I have ridden in one only once.  A friend I met while teaching in Germany took me for a drive.   His name was Don and he was cute, but the sparkling blue Stingray was fabulous! Oh my! I still remember them both with affection.Corvette
