One of My Favorite Corvette Photos

by Keith Cornett on February 7, 2009

I was looking for a photo to use as an avatar for a new Corvette social network I recently joined and came across this photo of me in my 1966 Corvette. I was returning to Tampa from the 2003 NCRS Winter Regional in Kissimmee with my friend Chris trailing me in his C5 Corvette Coupe. It wasn’t until that night that I knew he took this shot of me comfortably cruising at 82 mph on Interstate 4.

Several years later I paid forward the favor when I came upon Charlie driving his 1965 Corvette convertible on I-95 in South Carolina. He was returning to South Florida from Deals Gap, NC where he and some friends had cruised the Tail of the Dragon. Although I didn’t have a HUD in the GMC Arcadia rental to document our speed, Charlie had about the same surprised reaction at seeing him in his Corvette as I did after I was able to track him down through the forums and send him the pictures.

Like Charlie, I drive my 1966 Corvette regularly (although not usually that far from home) and I think that’s one of the neatest aspects of this photo: Just me on the road in my ’66 Sting Ray with the wind whipping through the cockpit and my focus on the road ahead. Life should be that good everyday.
