What is your most embarrassing car story?
I have 2. When I was 16 I was driving my first car a 72 Chevelle SS, after a high school dance one night decided to race a buddy and was pulled over for doing 105 in a 30, actually had to blow through a red light because I couldn’t stop. The Police actually pulled a gun on me! The funny thing is I did not even have my hard copy license yet, I only had my paper copy.
#2 Bought my first brand new car 1983 Chev Cavalier, the first week we owned it, I parked the car, went into the house and about 5 minutes later I felt the house shake and rumble, yep the car followed me home, hit the house.
Tell us the story of your car, what made you want to buy this one?
I have liked corvettes my entire life, and have owned a couple before this one. I was trying to find a dealer that had an allocation available since you can’t just order one from any dealer. As I was looking I found this one at Luther Brookdale Chev a guy apparantly had ordered it, almost exactly as I would have and before he could take delivery his wife asked for a divorce. As it turns out I wanted a Manual Transmission and it was listed as having one, when I got there it turned out to be an automatic and I was totally bummed out. That is until I drove it! :)

Riding with my brother in his 55 Chev Bel Air
