    I love my Corvette

    A Corvette Addict

     
    In 1958 when I turned 16, the strongest desire I had was to own a Corvette. No, not for today's reasons. Back then, a Corvette made you the "KING OF THE HILL". A social force to be reckoned with; someone who stood out from the crowd. As with most 16 year old's, my desires were beyond my means. Several cars came and went, '55 Chevy's to be exact. After getting out of the service, a new car was in order. Thoughts of a 1964 Corvette immediately sprang to mind. But again, reality raised it's ugly head and all that the budget (read monthly payment) would allow was a '64 GTO. Still, all in all, not too shabby a car.

    In the subsequent years, marriage, homes, children, work assignments, budgets, all required that the Corvette dream remain just that. Finally, in 1984, it happened! A Marina Blue, '67 Roadster just reached out and grabbed me. I was hooked!

    I joined Classic Glass Corvette Club, started buying excessive amounts of wax's and polish's, car covers, new parts, you all know the story. It was pitiful. Nobody can own just one, so a second 'Vette, a '71 Big Block Coupe joined the family. Now, my wife was hooked too!

    NCRS, NCCC, NCOA, ISCA, CCA memberships all increased the addiction. Soon, 2 '69 Roadsters had been purchased and restored. A 2000 convertible has joined the group. Corvette trophies are everywhere, Corvette Liquor Decanters, Corvette models, Corvette signs. Where will it all end?

    OK..... I admit it, I’M AN ADDICT!! But the regular monthly support meetings of the Classic Glass Corvette Club aren't helping! The NCM and the NCM Motorsports Park just adds to the problem. I thought that the CURE will be to get a new '10 Grand Sport when they came out. WRONG!

    HELP!!
