I'm guessing 1958. The old Corvettes were the classiest ever.

My dad would freak.  He'd be all over this.

Oh killing me....what a great car! My dream is the baby blue T-Bird Convertable....or perhaps a convertable vintage mustang, I'm open.

That is a beautiful corvette.  I never drove one of them but it would be great to own a classic.

John, that is SO cool! I can't believe you captured it! I love the juxtaposition against the yellow cab too. Great capture!

John - Now you are hurting me:-)  I love vintage Corvettes.  So what the year?  I suspect somewhere between 1956 - 1958.

Thanks for your comments everyone. I'm not sure of the year but it definitely looks like a 50's vette. I took the photo on the fly at the Space Coast Art Festival in Cocoa Beach last year. The event usually happens on Thanksgiving week end and features great artists from all over the country. I never miss it!

OOOOOHHHHH! I love that car! When I was coming of age, the big deal was a Mustang - I wanted one really bad, but alas, it was not to be! I did eventually get  a Camero tho! LOL

What a scene stealer. Such a sharp contrast to all of the other vehicles in the photo. :)

That's one of my favorite 'older' cars. Love the lines, the color accents, and the big whitewalls. Always great to see one of these on the road.

Debi - I used to drive Camaros too (Z-28's). Now I have a mini van :-)

Steve The car sure got my attention!

John - It really does have classic lines.

My son-in-law Dave has a '72 Cuda almost identical to this one only with a 383, not a hemi. It was Dave's first car and is worth a tidy sum of money right now. He and his friend restored it and they're working on another Cuda now.

My first car was a 1953 Dodge Regent without power steering similar to this one. My Grandfather gave it to me for my birthday and it was a tank. You could barely turn the wheel! Cars have come a long way since then.

This was my second car. A 1962 Chevy Nova convertible. It was great until I knocked a hole in the oil pan going down a country road! :-)

Looks like a '63 or '64 hardtop convertible. My youngest uncle had one like that. I loved it but he's the one who had to take care of it, and the fuel-injection engine wasn't reliable.
