I am a woman and am not sure if I can go "boing", but show me a Vette and I'll get close to it....

I don't know if I could ever go boing for a car, but old Jags get me close enough.

Everytime I see your car Poundkey I gotta love it. Red is one of my favourite colours. Guess what the other is? Over the last 35 year I only have a couple picture of which this may be the most recent.




I found one more.

Hey there Mydream.....I was hoping you would come through with some pics of your 75. Being the original owner makes it a lot more special. Not many people can say that anymore. It really looks great.

MyDream, that is a fine fine fine piece of machinery. I'm boinging! Thanks for sharing the pics, and I agree with Poundkey, your being the original owner is SO COOL.

And where are the boys with the muscle cars that I love...we're waiting here...

Nice Vettes, guys.
I never owned one, but I've had more than a few rides in one in my salad days.
I have to blaspheme and say I always felt too cramped in a Corvette. I have very long legs.

I went "boing" for one of these 4 years ago. 2005 Premium model and I'm the original owner. I love driving this car. It's a 5 speed manual, of course.
It is modeled after the original 1969 convertible and actually comes pretty close. I drove my Mom's 69 for 1 year at school. It was pretty beat up bodywise but it was still FUN.
http://www.mustangreview.com/1969vert.htm

Someday some young kid is going to be very happy to buy this from me when I can't shift or w*rk the clutch anymore.
First having to crow-bar my fingers off the wheel, that is.
