Joe spoke to a lady who had just donated her 1954 Corvette. She owned it when she met her husband, they used it for their dates, they got married in it and he died in it of heat stroke. She just drove it into the showroom and bought a brand new Corvette, C5. Figuring she was around 70+ (?) She was sharp and very nice. Loved telling the story of her car. Joe also spoke to the new owner of the gun metal gray Vette. He bought it for himself as a retirement present, he and his wife were very nice and very excited! We loved the color. This was a neat treat seeing this museum - glad we stopped and checked it out. We both have always loved and wanted a Corvette. What a following they have! Tomorrow unless the weather ties us up, we move to Nashville.
