Corvette C3 of the Week
Here is my white '82 Corvette. This car is all original. A friend of ours received this as a gift from her son. He bought it for her new at Christmas. The dealer delivered it to her driveway with a big red bow on the hood. She was in her 50s then. In her 70s, her husband had a stoke and she decided to trade it in on a wheelchair accessible van. The dealer only wanted to give her $xx,000. I told her I would buy it. We are good friends and since it was sentimental, she agreed to sell it to me. She knew that I have a passion for old cars. I have a 1974 GTO which I bought new. With only 56,000 original miles, it is still a beauty. With her knowing that, it reassured her sure that the Corvette was going to be in good hands. The Vette had 12.000 orginal miles when I got it and now it has only 13,000. I really wish it could make Corvette of the week. I would print it out and give it to her. This car was bought for my wife to take to car shows, while I take the GTO. I know this is a Corvette site but I will send a picture of both cars. Because without the one, I probably wouldn't have obtained the other. The car is the 350 Crossfire, white exterior with red interior.
Thanks very much Gary for sharing your Corvette story. We all appreciate it. A very sharp looking GTO as well!
