I've had my '69 for ten years last month.  Bought the '78 a bit earlier but sold that about six years ago.

My 74 just hit the 7 year with me. But its not going to make 8 as it leaves on Saturday for its new home. Good thing is the C3VR will probably get a new member since its a local 22 year old young man purchasing it. I guess that makes my official number for years owning a vette at 3 since that's how long I've owned the 72. Rodney

Bought "The Toy" in April of 2000.  It was a high school graduation present to myself - 30 years late...!!!  (Class of '70 - Go Lancers...!!!)
 
Found C3VR 2 years later when the site was just over 2 months old.  With the help and encouragement of the folks here I have tackled projects I didn't think I would ever have tried on my own.  THANKS GANG...!!!  Thumbs Up  Clap  Thumbs Up  Clap  Thumbs Up
