The '58 was used, the guy wanted $1300.00 for it. I had about $300.00 saved up so my father ended up trading his 1960 VW Beetle for it.regguy1, I am absolutely turning green with envy. I recall as a young boy going to the local Chevrolet dealership with my Dad, just to look at the new cars and sitting in the new Corvette for what seemed like hours, just dreaming of one day owning one. I totally loved the '57 through '60's but was never able to afford one. They seemed sooo out of my reach. Never missed an episode of "Route 66" just to dream more of owning a Corvette. I would have given practically anything to have had a first car like yours. Didn't buy my first Corvette until a '76 L82 four-speed car in 1980. I've had some pretty cool cars in between, but I haven't had another Corvette until this next one, which will be a 2015 Z06. 100% sure the deal is going to happen, but then the world could end I suppose... You've been very fortunate to have the cars you have had and still have. Isn't life great!
