I was 20 years old working for the local electric company. I happened to hear one of the older ladies mention that her husband had an old car he wanted to sell. I asked her what kind of car and she replied an old Chevrolet. She didn't know all that much about it this was in 1964. I asked if I could see it and she said come by tonight and I'll get my husband to show it to you. That night I went to her house and to my surprise he opened the garage and there was a 1956 corvette. It was a 240hp 265 Vette with 2 tops in very nice condition. He wanted 1000.00 but we haggled and I bought it for 850.00. I had that car for many years and sold it in 1974. I regret it to this day.
