Notes:

08-13-2003:  We received an email from John Amgwert, a 1953 Corvette owner stating:  "I now don't believe it was "originally owned by the DuPont family" as stated in the registry... my data shows it was originally delivered to Mr. J. Spencer Weed, then head of the Grand Union grocery company in Wayne, New Jersey. Mr. Weed was well-acquainted with Marion DuPont-Scott (wife of actor Randolph Scott) as both were involved in breeding jumping horses.
The car was delivered new to to Mr. Weed at a dealership in Wilmington, Delaware, in July of 1953, along with cars #005 & #006 (the first cars delivered). I believe Mr. Weed resided in the New York/New Jersey area. "

11/08/2002:  From Ron Anderson: "Originally owned by the Dupont family. Now owned by Fred Rinke, in Michigan."
