I have three images for you today of a 1966 yellow Corvette. One of my all time favorite cars. When I was 19 years old my Uncle owned 50% of the Chevrolet dealership in Bethany, Missouri. I could have bought a 1966 Corvette convertible for $3,600.00. Instead I opted for a solid black 1966, SS 396/375 Chevelle that would burn through back tires faster than the increase in the National Debt. 🙂
I paid $3,100.00 for the SS 396 so only $500 more for the Corvette. 😦
I’ve often regretted not going for the Corvette (which by the way my Uncle thought I was crazy for not doing) but I wanted pure speed. The Corvette only had a 327 engine and that didn’t have the horse power I wanted. Hey, I was 19 and stupid.
This particular Corvette is part of the Willis Johnson collection and kept in heated / air-conditioned garage. He has about 40 Corvettes of all different years and looks. He has the first year model Corvette up to the latest production model. Even though the garage is air-conditioned they had the doors open for us and so the heat and humidity took over very quickly.
I was already dripping wet from heat in the big garage so I didn’t do much shooting at the Corvette garage. When I found this ’66 I had to take some shots. 🙂
It is extremely difficult to take quality images of vehicles or any highly reflective subject with so many overhead fluorescent lights.
I am about at the end of my Nashville images. Perhaps a few more but I’ve pretty much gone through them. I appreciate all the comments about the trip and the images I’ve shown. It was truly a great experience.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
