My first Vette experience was in 1969. My good buddy bought a 69 427, 4 speed, side pipes, aux hardtop. It was a PIA to shimmy that top off and on.
One Sunday afternoon in 1970, I was visiting him with the future Vetlust, and we traded cars for a short ride. I had a 69 Cobra Mustang. We drove the Vette with the top off, and as I was pulling a steep 1st and 2nd gear, she said...."get one of these!!!!!!":laughing: :laughing: Well 30 years later I'm close, but no cigar.:stick:
