I have owned 5 Midyear Corvettes non of them Bone Stock! It was fun to rent one that was! I've rented new ones, the last 2 were C-6's There is a big diff between renting a car that's new and one that's over 50 yrs. old! John is right in the fact that I have great respect for him and his car! Used to be you had to go to Vegas, Texas or L.A. to rent what you now call a C-2 Corvette! This is a great opportunity for those who have one or never will have one! If this was around 10 years ago I may have never owned a C-2 Corvette ...it make more sense just to rent em! Much Love Chaze!
