My Shiney Things Thread

Since I'm kind of a Shiney Things guy, I decided to lump my stuff here so I can have a running thread of sorts. Sorry about the date stamp, in my hurry to get out, I forgot my own camera and had to use Mrs. VT. Corvettes in town last sunday.

Flames and pearl paint aren't exactly my thing, but it does draw gawkers.

It's kind of like "if you see a Corvette in a driveway, you take a look, if you see a Corvette at a Corvette Show, it disappears".

I'm really liking the early models, yep even more than the 63-67's.









You can't hide the disc all around here!

It was a beautiful day for show and maybe someday I'll have an early model. Now where is that $115,000 winning Lotto ticket?

thanks for the pics VTWIN. Very nice.

I've owned 2 Vettes and driven many others. This is a decidedly non Vette-friendly board though...
