    I love my Corvette

    #5893 - The Icon in my garage

    Do you have an icon sitting in your garage? The most original 1963 Split-Window Sting Ray Corvette is sitting in mine, and has been since I bought it off the showroom floor in LaSalle-Peru, Illinois 50 years ago. For the list price of $4875.00 I brought home an automobile that would be our only auto for its initial 6 years, and has been licensed consistently the entire 50 years I've been the proud owner. Have been offered many times over what I paid, but my eldest daughter would likely disown me for making that move! It continues to be a source of great pride to own such an influential piece of American automotive history. I truly do love S/N#5893 - the icon sitting in my garage!
