To the best I can determine my 57 was built 50 years ago today!

And April Fools Day, 1957 was a Monday!

Here it is less than a month later after delivery to the original owner:

Today I got in, caught rubber in 1st, 2nd and 3rd, then wound it up to ~120!

Looking forward to Bloomington

Can't wait to see your car and finally meet you Bill.

The 57 CELEBRATION at Bloomington Special Collection will be fantastic this year. And your car will have a nice place in history.

I have owned nine 57's in my lifetime. They are one of the greatest Corvettes of all time.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!

Thanks, Jim.

I can't figger out why we never hooked up at the 02 Historics - I was one of the "pick-up" pit crew for Bob Harvey's Triple Nickel and parked right behind him in his paddock space for all but Sunday. (I thought having a 57 pit vehicle was pretty cool...)
