Tina Boyter says she fell in love with the shiny new 2013 Corvette as soon as she walked in the door at Red River Chevrolet in Bossier City, Louisiana.
All that remained to be worked out were the details.
Of course, those details were anything but ordinary.
You see, it’s not often that someone trades in a 99-year-old car on a brand new vehicle.
But that’s what Boyter did. In fact, she traded in three classic cars on the new Corvette. First up was a 1914 Ford Model T that was built as a racer by Ford and had been her father’s show-stopper for years.
But she decided it was time to move on after the car had just been sitting with fluids drained in a museum for the past 16 years.
She also decided to part with a 1980 Corvette that had been her personal car for years, as well as her mother’s barely-used 1978 Cadillac Eldorado that was showing just a little more than 10,290 miles on the odometer despite being 35 years old!
When the ink had been signed, Ms. Boyter was the proud owner of a 2013 2LT Corvette, sporting a white exterior over red leather.
Ironically, Red River Chevrolet has a long history with Ford – the dealership having sold both companies’ products side-by-side when it first opened in the early 1900s. Imagine that kind of setup nowadays!
