    Driving back to basics and joy with a 1969 Corvette Stingray Convertible

    The 1969 Corvette Stingray Convertible was the top car of its day. This classic model has had an almost complete restoration done to it. (Brent Jamieson/CTVNews.ca)

    Cool breeze, shining sun, clear skies – the perfect fall conditions to go out in a convertible. But not just any convertible, either. This day was a day to drive a classic convertible: A 1969 Corvette Stingray Convertible.

    Built 43 years ago, the Stingray was the car to have, and at almost $6,500 with taxes, it cost practically a year’s salary at the time.

    The owner of this classic car bought it brand new in 1969. He just recently got it back to near-showroom finish with an almost complete overhaul and restoration, and I was just handed the keys for the day.
