We’re hoping this 1972 Corvette field car that recently sold on eBay falls into that category.

‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

A Georgia woman probably isn’t so sure about that old saying, especially after her heart may wind up being broken twice – but not by a man, but by a Corvette.
