Next spring my brother and I take his ashes home to Evansville,Indiana. This 96 triple black convertible Corvette will take him to his final resting spot....."90MPH with our hair on fire" he used to say.

    Thanks for the kind remarks Jane......I have to say I started the post last night but it hurt to bad to think about all that's happened over the last year or so. I didn't know grieving his loss would be so hard.
    He wasn't just my Dad he was the best friend I've had or will ever have. We did everything together these last five years. Lots of good memories and partying.

    Rain, I really enjoyed your pictures of the Cherohala skyway. The wife and I made the trip to TN this past August and we made the same journey. Beautiful drive.

    I think I'm trapped in the twilight zone...I've gotten two email notices that there have been new posts in this thread....but the one from Rain I quoted is still the last one I can see...there should be atleast two more posts!!!

    If members try unsuccessfully to display a photo, and then DELETE the post, the software will already have sent the notices.

    BTW - if anyone is having issues adding photos to their posts, start a thread in the Site Help and Feedback forum http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/...play.php?f=133 and we'll do what we can to help.

    Great looking 89. I always liked the blue exterior on the early C4's.

    Thanx, CTYANK2. It has the blue interior with sport seats. We are very excited to final have a corvette, unfortunately we received the car just in time to put it away for the winter.
    Oh well, spring will be here soon, right?

    I think it's nice that a lot of Vette owners store their rides for the bad weather months. But it would drive myself insane if I tried to do that. I love driving the Vette way to much. I have been fortunate the last few years thou, it does not rain much any more. I guess because of globle warming or whatever. I't nice to drive in all the seasons with the glass top. you get some pretty nice vistas to view. But any way, here's to all the great C4 Vettes out there. The best car I ever bought, and hope to get more soon.

    89FX3 - nice looking C4! Here's the full size version of your thumbnail image.






    When you have time, stop by the New member forum here and post a thread so more of the CAC members can stop in and say hello.
