Yowsa!


Today's ABC Wednesday letter is "R"--ready?

Dave and I saw this pristine model parked on the street in White Bear Lake one Saturday. He knew it was a 1959 Corvette by the grooves in the hood. What I knew was that it was the most gorgeous red I'd ever laid eyes on. Roman Red to be exact.

And, if these pics have you humming 'Little Red Corvette,' remember that Prince is from Minnesota too.

Happy Wednesday--for more fun 'r' words, or to join in, drop by Mrs Nesbitt's.

I wonder how much a beautiful vintage car like that costs? Whatever it is, it's worth it. That is awesome!

I want a ride!! What a gorgeous red, pretty as a cherry, and the car looks in "cherry" condition, too, or so they used to say when I was in high school. Great photos!

Oh sob. Seeing this car reminds me of my old fire engine red 1955 T-Bird I had way back when. One of life's big regrets that I ever sold that car.
