My first Corvette. A white 1953 (they only came in white -- with a red interior), six cylinder "Blue Flame" engine with three side draft carbs pushing a Chevy Powerglide transmission. This was fairly sophisticated stuff back then. In 1963 I let Rick Carroll (KROQ, Los Angeles, an intern at KLIV at the time) drive it on his sixteenth birthday. He ran it over a concrete parking block -- putting a minor gash under the right-front grill. When I took it to a body shop the have it fixed the body shop guy talked me into painting the car red. A very dumb thing to do -- but not the first (or last) dumb thing I've ever done. My high school "best-friend" Len Norby of Portland, OR (a died-in-the-wool GM fan) is responsible for fostering my lifelong love of Chevrolets.
Interior view of "Over Scale".
"Over Scale" is a 41 ft Chris Craft Commander powered by twin Volvo Penta (410 hp) diesel engines. What a lovely boat! This picture was taken on one of my frequent trips to Avalon at Catalina Island. She is kept in Northern Mexico or Southern California and is more fun. Another view of "Over Scale".
The 1989 Corvette Convertible. It has less than 60,000 miles and was recently
upgraded with a c-5 body kit which makes it look quite like the 2003 Corvettes.
The new body was painted with many coats of Corvette Torch Red, finished with
clear coat and color sanding.
