Re: Laughing out loud
The older I get, the more stories I have.
Back in 1998, I was installing a CD changer in my 1989 Corvette. I had to pull the carpet to do so.
At the time Stapleton International Airport had been decomissioned, but the runways were still being used for SCCA racing. The wife and I loaded up the Vette to go test'n'tune and I stopped off at the Dealership to buy $1.50 worth of carpet plugs to nail the carpet back down.
We left two hours later with a 1989 Corvette, two carpet plugs, and a 1998 Corvette.
We would have traded in the 89, but gosh darned it if they wanted to give me half of what I still owed on it. They went ON and ON how it was November, and it was a convertible, and they'd have to sit on it all winter long and I said "Fine, We'll hold on to it" with the intent of selling it myself in the spring.
approximately three weeks after that, "Our 98 Corvette" subtly became "HER" 98 Corvette...and the first 72-degree top-down spring day the 89 became "MY" Corvette and I decided to keep it.
Still have it. In fact, it's about the only thing we got out of the Dot Com bust.
