WHEW!

My parents are moving out of their home in lower DE on November 14th, so we've been busy packing everything up and getting the house cleaned out for their transition. During the packing, I found a pic of my dad's last '62 (he had a black one before this one) that I haven't seen in 8 years. My grandmother gave the pic to my dad when I was in my teens, and the pic sat on a shelf in my parents' bedroom until they moved into the home they are currently in.

A recent basement flooding in their current home has taken its toll on the pic, but I'm glad to see its contents are still viewable. I am going to work on it with Photoshop to try to bring it back up to a better quality photo- However, just knowing it's still in existence, and being able to share it with you guys, makes it even more worth the save! The car was titled the "Grey Ghost" for reasons you can figure out by seeing the pic- Enjoy.

OUCH! That picture loads slow. Why don't you upload it to the gallery? Or, give me permission to do so?!

:thumbsup:

Go to the "4,600 Corvette Pics" menu choice up above, then choose upload photos. Then fill in the blanks and follow the instructions. You'll be good to go.:excited:

Great story.

What year was that picture taken? Beautiful '62, but what did he do to the exhaust? :(

Re:

That pic was taken somewhere around '63-'64. The exhaust was what was known as "scavenger pipes"- I believe they were nothing but straight pipe with no mufflers... Bet the neighbors loved that!
