Save the Wave! If you happened to read an earlier blog post of mine, I mentioned that the Corvette Wave was nearly 50 years old… so, just in case you didn’t believe me, here’s the article from the August/September 1969 issue of Corvette News (so please don’t blame me for some of the slight sexism in the article!): Ever since Corvette No. 00001 first met … Continue reading Save the Wave – First official mention of the Corvette Wave
This morning, while driving to work on I-287, a beautiful Red Corvette Stingray pulled alongside me and gave me the “Corvette Wave”. I returned his greeting with one of my own, and we both continued down the road, with him turning off at the next exit and I drove off to work. This entire exchange of salutations took less that 10 seconds, but it, oddly, … Continue reading The Corvette Wave – What the heck is that?
Rain rain go away – Come again when I don’t want to drive… Sheesh, this weekend was a wash, figuratively and literally. I had planned on showing my vette at a local car show on Saturday night but the weather just wouldn’t cooperate. It started raining on Friday and continued off and on all weekend. As a result, no car show for me, and it wasn’t … Continue reading Rain rain go away – Come again when I don’t want to drive
Quite possibly the last thing you think of when buying a car is soundproofing it. I know I didn’t. When I bought my Corvette Grand Sport Coupe in May 2018, it was a dream come true – I first saw the Stingray in 2014 and loved it, but thought it might just be a phase… so I waited… and looked… and waited some more. Four … Continue reading DIY Soundproofing for your Corvette… for $25

Although I love a clean car as much as the next guy/gal, before I bought my Corvette Grand Sport, I never washed my car myself. NEVER! Although I cared about how my car looked, I thought that washing it properly would be too difficult (especially since I didn’t have a garage) and that it would cost way too much to get it done as good … Continue reading How to Wash Your Car Like A Pro – Quickly and Easily
So, for as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted a Corvette. What little boy (or girl for that matter) doesn’t? Now, I was born way back in 1976, but my first recollection of actually SEEING a Corvette in person wasn’t until about 1986 or so, and boy was it a beauty. One of my father’s friends at that time (who will remain nameless, … Continue reading Corvette Love – Planting the Vette Seed at a Young Age
Hi, and welcome to my Corvette blog! My name is Rob, and I finally become a 1st-time proud Corvette owner at the ripe-old age of 41 on May 4th, 2018 when I picked up my brand new, shiny 2019 Watkins Grey Corvette Grand Sport Coupe from Kerbeck down in Atlantic City. So, not only did I hit the jackpot down in A.C., I was … Continue reading Welcome to my Vette Life – Intro to my Corvette Blog
