Just blown away … and this was not a museum piece. Scratches on the side, sounded like it needed a tuneup. This car gets driven, which is nice.

Great. Now I have “Little Red Corvette” stuck in my head.

Should have hit video – what a sound that thing made!

I have a metal scale-model of the ’59 Vette on my credenza at work. As close as I’m going to get to owning one.

Here’s a decent one on eBay. Wonder what it’ll sell for?

$49K seems low.

I’m in the Beijing airport, waiting for my flight home. I’m used to getting felt up at airport security here but today’s gal was particularly vigorous. I was hoping she would say “It’s twue, it’s twue!” but alas she did not.

Melbell just dropped a 145-point word on me in WWF.

I’ve always been partial to the circa 1968 body style. It’s the car I yearned for when I was a kid, and if something like this fell into my hands I’d drive it every day the sun came out:
