I took these at the Corvettes at Corsa Show in Berea Ohio 07/27/2014
My Crystal Red Coupe and a One Owner 1954, nice contrast of 60 years of Corvette evolution

Just beautiful!!! I can't imagine what people would say if you told them back in 54 that the corvette would look like it does now...

The '54 had the original sales invoice posted, the price of the car was about what the sales tax was on mine :cool:

For a split second I thought that picnic table was some sort of new fin on your car.

Thanks for posting this and the side by side Regguy! Though I am not sure the Guinness record is current, here is what Guinness states: "James C. Rees, 83 of Worcester, stands next to his 1951 Chevrolet Bel Air Coupe outside of Collegeville Italian Bakery. He was treated to a surprise party after achieving the World Record for the longest car ownership from new. The previous Guinness world record was held by Carl T. Keller of Clintonville, Wisc., and his 1951 Packard convertible."

Another car I found interesting was the 2003 made to resemble a 1953
see it at the 20 second mark in this video:

I thought that is what it would be. I guessed you were finalizing the purchase of a C1.
Well, my dad was going to buy a yellow 1954 Corvette, but someone bought it out from underneath him. Would have been awesome him having a yellow 54 with me having a yellow 14.
