22 Years!

On this day 22 years ago (or 8,036 days ago, but who’s counting…), which was also a Sunday, I married the kindest, cutest, sweetest, most wonderful person in the world. I LOVE YOU, V Squared!

******************

Speaking of 1999, for that model year Chevrolet introduced this Corvette variant:

Although the higher performance Z06 based on this body style would not be introduced until 2001, and this car had the same engine as all Corvettes, it was only available with a six-speed manual transmission. As a reference, two-thirds of all non-hardtop ’99 Vettes were sold with an automatic. At one point before I bought my Z06 I had the borderline insane idea of buying one of these and having an automatic transmission installed in place of the manual.

To me, these were the best looking C5 Corvettes. An auxiliary hardtop was no longer a factory option for the convertible. Don’t get me wrong, I liked all C5 Corvettes. I bought one, remember. I just think these are quite sharp in appearance.

 

Nothing else to add today. Be well.

PS, it is not my intent to diminish the significance of this day in 1944. Others who are far more qualified than I to write about it are the people whose thoughts should be read today.

      1. Thanks for the thoughts. Not sure I’m on “the” road, but at least I’m on “a” road. Hopefully there are minimal construction delays and/or detours on said road.

        The sugar is still a learning curve. For instance, I discovered last night that pizza is NOT a good choice. So, back to gruel and water today. 😦

      2. Having lived with diabetes for 20+ years I can attest to the fact that sometimes life offers unpleasant surprises about food and drink choices. Not saying you definitely have diabetes, of course.

  1. At 22 years and counting, you and V2 have only 27.5 years to catch up with her cousin and myself. Congratulations are well deserved.

    The simple, straightforward lines of the C5 make a sweet looking vehicle.
