Monday Monday! So good to Me!

When the song Monday Monday was released back in 1966 by the Mamas & The Papas, I am sure they were thinking that in 50 years, a blogger would use it as as an opening line for an internet pictorial feature about Corvettes.

So now that the set up is out of the way, it’s time for the latest Midyear Monday photo gallery featuring 36 photos of Corvettes built between 1963-1967.
