~Haymarket, Virginia! What a great turnout for the Vettes for Vets Show. Must have been 200+ Corvettes on display. I brought my Pearl White 70th anniversary 2023 Corvette Convertible. A quick 65 miles each way for me and my odometer is up to a whopping 227 miles driven?? *See everyone at Corvettes at Carlisle in a few weeks. I will have my Corvette on display at the Ron Fellows Spring Mountain race track on the Midway infield just next to the GM tent. Stop by and say hello. I will be there Wednesday afternoon through Saturday afternoon.
~July 26th marks the start of my 45th year selling Corvettes so I thought I’d post up some old pics along the way. It’s not a job if you love what you do!
~July 27 Left my house in Maryland at 3:45am to drive to Princeton, NJ to play in the yearly golf outing for the NCAA College Wrestling Hall of Fame. I wrestled at U of Maryland on a full ride and graduated so Long ago that my Washington Post Sports publicity picture was in B/W!??The 2nd picture is me and my high school wrestling coach, someone I’ve known since 1968! Bucky is 79 and in great shape!
~July 31, 1981 – The last Corvette rolled off the assembly line at the General Motors Plant in North St. Louis. The plant had built about 700,000 Vettes since 1954. GM moved the Corvette assembly line to Bowling Green, Kentucky.
~It’s not every day you get to open the mail and receive a personal note from an original “Charlie’s Angel”…Jaclyn Smith has been married for the last 25 years to a classmate of my sister and teammates with my brother from high school. Recently I came across home movies of a BIG wrestling match that my high school was involved in and my brother and Brad were the first two on the mat for our old team. I mailed Brad a thumb drive video of the match and in turn his wife sent me the personalized 8×10 that you see pictured.

~What a great story…met a guy at the Corvette show in Haymarket, VA that was parked right next to me with his 1956 Corvette. He shared with me that his Father bought this 1956 Venetian Red Corvette Convt in 1957 as the 2nd owner and it’s been in his family ever since. This gentleman had it restored over a decade ago and it will continue to stay in his family forever over time. Check out the old pics, the young toddler is the son and current owner and he even has the check from payment and original registration card! In 1956 Chevrolet produced 3,467 Corvettes and 1,043 In Venitian Red! The highest quantity in color of the 6 available colors.
