The first American guru of fitness Jack LaLanne passed away over the weekend. He was 96 years old. No doubt that clean living and lots of exercise will go along way, but there was more to Jack than fitness. LaLanne was a lifelong Corvette owner and they were the favorites of his car collection. If you remember the big man with the skinny waist doing amazing feats of fitness on black and white television, check out Scott Teeter’s Corvette Report for more on this famous Corvette owner.

Vette Magazine interviewed Jack and he talks about his love of Corvettes.

Rest in peace, Jack. You’ve earned it!
