Back in 1985 I was a sophomore in high school and just getting my license. I loved the newly redesigned Corvette in 1984 and dreamed of owning one someday. With a sticker price of around $25,000 it was truly a dream as I read through the road test magazines like Motor Trend, Road and Track, and Car and Driver. Fast forward 29 years when I recently found a beautiful silver 1985 Corvette with a manual transmission and was able to purchase it and drive it home. That ride was amazing. The sound, the smell, the power, the fun. A dream come true and it was worth the wait!
