This was my first new car, A 1956 Corvette. After some serious negotiation on the price I then had to weather the storm from my Mom. She thought I was crazy. She thought I was going to kill myself in it. I proved her wrong. I enjoyed driving the car but I was being pulled over all the time just so the police could see the car and look under the hood. In 1958 a spotted a good looking blond driving a 1957 T Bird. I flirted with her and followed her home. I meet her parents and started dating her. In 1961 Betty "The Blond" and I were married. So you could say the vette played cupid. I drag raced the vette on the weekend with poor results but after twiking the car with my good friend Hal who had a 57 modified vette, I became unstoppable winning from 58 to 62 in almost every event I entered. Working long hours and going to Collage at night limited my driving time but in 1981 with encouragement from my son we started off to car shows and conventions. We traveled the country. From Cleveland OH, Boston MA, Carlisle PA, St Charles Nevada, Toronto Canada, Nevada City CA, Mesquite Nevada, Bowling Green Kentucky and North Tonawanda New York. Attending NCRS and NCCC meets throughout the country eventually earning top flight status. This vette is still original, no clear coat and is driven to all the shows!! All 99,000 miles. It is not a trailer queen. It has been great to me and i am glad it still is a one owner car. Go Vettes, Save the wave. Ken K.
