LIVING THE DREAM

 

I have always wanted a Corvette. This May while visiting our son, daughter-inlaw and granddaughters in Palatine, Illinois, our son suggested we visit the Volo Auto Museum in Volo, Illinois.

When we saw this 1961 Corvette, Carol jokingly said there’s your car.

When we returned home to Tucson I started thinking about it and began emailing the museum to find out more about the car. I decided to purchase it on June 5th (our anniversary) and the rest is history. I tell everyone that I graduated from high school in 1961 and this is my high school graduation present to myself
