I've had my 66 Corvette for 30 years . Wife says she would get rid of me before the Corvette.

I'm 54 and been a mechanic pretty much as far back as I can remember. I've worked on some very sweet vehicles in my life but never owned any that were very memorable, or worth a second look. Even the 2 International trucks I presently own are not really drool worthy nor will they ever be.
