History
I've owned this Vette since 1983, drove it for a few years then had to park it. The car sat in the garage for 15 years while the kids grew up. Now the Vette has gone through a restoration, done by Corvettes Etc in Charlotte NC.
Driving the car is my mental therapy, an early morning cruise with the music coming out of the exhaust pipes is all I need to feel better.
