Jordan Taylor’s Idea of a Perfect First Date

Put Corvette racer Jordan Taylor behind the wheel of a race car and he is the consummate professional with a fierce drive to win. But race car drivers have a lot of downtime between races and so Jordan finds ways to entertain himself and those that follow him on social media.

Taylor is a fun guy to follow on twitter and instagram. From his #JTFacial pics of unsuspecting sleeping travelers and the occasional parking ratings he hands out, you’ll almost always be amused at what this guy comes up with next.

Yesterday, Jordan offered his idea of a perfect first date which includes his Nassau Blue 1965 Corvette Coupe. Without spoiling it any further (because I couldn’t do it justice if I tried), I’ll let him tell the story of how he see’s the perfect first date:

A couple of racing legends will be reunited at the Goodwood Revival this fall.

Bowe has been invited to race at Goodwood , set for Sept. 11-13, with another Australian-based businessman recently turned race car driver, Joe Calleja, in the Corvette belonging to Calleja. The two also competed with the car at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion in Laguna Seca, Calif., in 2012.

Back in 2007 when this blog was still in its infancy, we attended one of our first live auctions as an official Corvette Blogger to cover some of the really cool Corvettes offered for sale. Hosted by RM Auctions, the December 2007 sale of the Al Wiseman Collection contained several prominent Corvettes including Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Harvest Gold 1955 Corvette Roadster.

But the real star of the auction, other than Val Kilmer’s Batmobile from Batman Forever, was a unique 1965 cut-away Corvette display created by General Motors to show off the inner-workings of the Corvette Sting Ray at its annual auto shows.

Unique 1965 Corvette Big Tank Coupe to Cross the Block at Mecum's Kissimmee Auction

Mid-year Corvette coupes with the 36.5 gallon gas tank option are pretty rare, there having been a total of only 210 built in the 1963 – 1967 model years. But the 1965 Big Tank coupe offered at Mecum’s Kissimmee Auction at the Osceola Heritage Park in (where else?) Kissimmee, Fla. January 16-24 is unique because of its comfort and convenience options not usually found on Big Tank Vettes.
