No , I had a coupe. Those canisters were convertible only.

Yup , that was the one that got away.

I sold as my boss said he would ride a company vehicle vette for me to buy on the employye purchase program. It was ordered as a 1973 yellow coupe. Two months before It was ready to be sold GM and thei wisdom decided to limit vette sales to levels higher than I was.

I was PO'd. Went out and bought a Lotus Europa.

All my bosses asked why i was driving an import - I told them the story and they shutup.

I'm still po'd about it!

That was what was screwed up about working for a big corporation.

Went retail and never looked back. I am very loyal for them and the opportunity they provided.

Going Retail was much more work and much more lucrative.

I have since personally sponsored two very fine young me through GMI (now called Kettering). I felt it was a debt I owed GM and the school.

I also intend to gift them some of my portfolio to advance the great opportunity I had to more needy young people.

I still have a L88 427 with open chamber aluminum heads in my garage. The two cars I'd love to add to my 7 would be my first - a 1955 Del Ray sedan and that 69 SS RS big block Camaro.

But first I must complete the projects I already have.
