Know the feeling shared the same dream and bought mine a year ago at "58". Going to dust here off right now. Everytime I push the start button I get that chill down my spine. Set yourself a Photo-Bucket account up and share some photo. Heres my baby taking a nap.

As a non supporting member you have to post pictures from a web hosting service like Photobucket. Just load the pictures into yor PB account and when you want to post one click on the picture in Pb then copy the IMG code and just paste it in your post. You can go back & forth to post several pictures in the same post.

Didn't AARP just open a Corvette dealership in Orlando?

Seriously, 57 isn't old.
