    I love my Corvette

    Sweet, Short and Simple

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     "All sports cars look good but Corvette is truly 'America's Sports Car:' The history, the clubs, the events and most importantly just the fun of driving it," said cpteddie.
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    As a 12 year old in 1953 and living in a small Georgia town I was very attentive to the Uncle of one of my school friends who bought one of the first Corvettes produced. I remember it being so unique and what I would now call seductive.

    Then every two years he would upgrade to the newest and latest model. And everyone in town would wait with anticipation to see what the next one was like and would always watch for "Uncle Harry" to drive by in the sharpest car in town.

    So naturally as a young boy my ambition became, "one of these days I will own one of those" Then the years went by, college, job, family, career and now retirement.

    But I never forgot Uncle Harry's Corvette's. So upon retirement I finally purchased my first Corvette. And it just happens to be the 60th Anniversary model, a 2013 Sport Coupe, Crystle Red and when I drive it around town, a much bigger town, I can see people pointing and talking about my Corvette and I wonder if they are pointing at me, like Uncle Harry, and saying "one of these days I am going to get me one of those".
