Back in 1989, I ordered my second new Corvette – a 1989 red on red coupe.

My girlfriend at the time and now my wife of 25 years (our anniversary is July 15, coincidentally) Cindy worked at a day care center.

“I think I just saw your Corvette pass by!” she called excitedly to tell me.

Sure enough, it was.
