We went out to dinner last night. Parked the Corvette in front and we went in. Top was down, Navy Blue C5 convert, 60K miles, garage kept, recently waxed. We came out and 5 people were looking it over. It's true - if clean it gets looks no matter what the age. I long to get my 67 back, but it was uncomfortable to drive for more than 4 hrs - I am 6'4".
