56 GULLWING OR 64 CORVETTE YOUR CHOICE $3,100.00

I have not thought about this story in years, back in 1964 I went to a Jaguar dealer to look at a used 1964 Corvette he had for sale. Parked next to it was a silver 1956 Gullwing. He said I could have either car for $3,100.00........................I bought the Vette.

Vette was hit head on by a drunk driver 6 months after I bought it. Both drivers side wheels were torn off the car. I wound up with a gash in my head and my buddy split his pants......car was totaled.......43 years ago.

Hey,

You can still buy a fully restored 64 Corvette or a 56 Gullwing on eBay for $3100. Matter of fact, I ordered one of each, and have sent the cash to Nigeria. I should be getting the cars any day now.....

Jamie

But then again, I could be wrong.........

Where is everyone? Find out here (and let everyone know where you are, too)...
