- Wishin' I was in Wi
Oh, how the times have changed over the decades... I have an uncle who had a 63 with the chrome side pipes, back when I was a kid. Took a couple of rides in it, when I was young (late 70's), and it scared the crap out of me.. LOL. He bought it, after returning from Vietnam, then became a long haul truck driver for the rest of his career (just retired this past Dec at 72). About 1986 or so, he had to sell it, as he was having another child. $8,000.00. I am about ready to cry, as I see this locally: 63 Vette I know he loved that car, but family and his career forced the decision on him. I wish he could get it back, now that he is retired.
