What other interesting facts might others enjoy knowing about you? (Occupation, hobbies, family, recent vacation, etc. Feel free to add any other interesting Corvette related story.):
We were married on Father’s Day in 1963 and on Father’s Day of this year will have been married 50 years. I spent time as a police officer in Chico, Ca. We were avid motorcycle riders for many years, touring the western USA and the western part of Canada. Mary and I are both retired now for the second time December 2011. I love cars (Hot Rods and Corvettes). We both love to travel, gardening, good movies and being with family and friends. When we bought the New Corvette we traveled route 66 in May and June of 2012 from Barstow, CA. to Saint Louis. MO. We toured the Corvette plant and Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Spent a total of 30 days traveling in the vette, it was great. We are planning to do it again in 2014 with the caravan group from California
