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.
She knew, of course, that I had ordered a new Corvette and just happened to be looking out the window at work one afternoon when she saw a truckload of Corvettes pass by – with a shiny red one on the back! In those days, they didn’t come giftwrapped in a white cover like the C7s!
“I think I just saw your Corvette pass by!” she called excitedly to tell me.
Sure enough, it was.
Fast forward to last weekend, and classic car collector Luigi Capilupi had a similar moment – but just one that wasn’t quite as happy for the owner as my own story.
