Don't knock his post until you know for sure he didn't reply to an 11 year old thread to ask Johnny himself!

It sounds like he was about to follow that by demonstrating "making **** up"...

Of all the forums I attend, R/C flying, shooting, fishing, astronomy, coins and gardening this is one by far has the most hostile membership towards one another. I stopped participating in the "off topic" threads here because of this.

When that crap starts I stop reading the thread, can't we all just get along and agree to disagree without all the name calling, accusations, bashing and outright nastiest toward one another. We are all Corvette people, let's try to have as much class as our cars and leave the bickering to our esteemed politicians.

Well here's a NEW'S FLASH. Dictionary reveals that "new doesn't mean better", it only means it hasn't been around very long....

Thanks for the video! Weird timing for this thread to be resurrected, though. I just read that he drove a white C4 last night in All Corvettes Are Red (p.37, if anybody's interested). I said to my wife, "Hey, Johnny Carson drove a white C4, just like me. I must be as funny as Johnny Carson!"

Apparently not. I didn't get a laugh.

Also, I can't find a picture to prove it, but I believe Bob Uecker also drove a C4 in the 90s and he was a fairly frequent Tonight Show guest. I saw his parked inside County Stadium in Milwaukee when I was a kid in '94 or '95 (how I got there is a long story). In my memory it was black and I was in awe.

I was a tech on Scrabble at NBC Burbank , the Carson show was in Studio 2 across from our set. Johnny at that time had a White 1986 Corvette, it was parked near the stage door entrance everyday at 2pm... So I ould say it was a car of choice...

Dang this post is almost 4 years old ! lol
