1961 Corvette ~ And The Winner Is...

My Aunt Terry (from the previous post) just won this 1961 Corvette in a drawing at a Casino in Louisiana a few days ago. Can you believe what kind of luck she has!! She was just saying she needed to get a new car. It's a classic and her deceased husband, Uncle L., would have loved it! He had a Vet and even had it on his business calendar one year too. Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool that she won this one.

I think Aunt Terry should give this to you - You'd look great driving it - but since it is a two seater, who stays at home - Patrick or the kids? What a quandary.

WOW! What a lucky gal! Great car! :-)

The Japanese Redneck said...

OMG - I wish I had her luck!

Okay, there's just no, umm, justice! Oh, well, I had a muscle car while in college, so I guess it's okay...

grumble, grumble

Congrats to Aunt Terry!

How wonderful for your Aunt to win this super car! She must be tickled pink!

Lynn ~ That would never happen,but what a fun thought.(My cousin Raymond will probably get to show it off.) I'd have to say Pat would get the honors of shotgun here!

Daisy & J.R. ~ Yes, it seems things have been going pretty good for her lately.I ought to do a post on her some day.She's had some rough spots in her life but stays upbeat.

Rev. ~ Oh for sure I had a split second of wishing it was me too! After all, my Subaru is 15 years old and literally {{coughs}} when I'm driving it!! hehe.

Dorothy ~ She knew I'd be happy for her (even though I don't gamble)so she called me right after it happened. There was(of course) a big story to go with it.

I might even have to clean out the second bay of the garage if luck had dropped this baby in my lap! Good for Aunt Terry! May she enjoy many days of top-down weather as she tools around in this beauty.

Holy Cow, Cassie... I'm not a gambler AT ALL---but winning that car makes me wish that I was. I'd love to see your Aunt Terry driving that baby..... See if you can get a picture for us!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Oh she is sooooo lucky! Papa used to have a 1966 vette before he married Mama, sold it before he met her. Then after they were married they bought a 1979 vette. They loved it, but of course the oldies are so much nicer looking!

Talk about a big win! They don't make cars like they used to!

Cassie said...

Suz ~ I did win a "half a hog" at the County Fair last year. But that's as good as it gets for me!!

Joated & Betsy ~ I'm going to ask her son if he'll take some pictures of her in it once it get delivered to Texas.(Not sure if it's there yet.)

Butchy & gang ~ Sounds like your dad is a Vet man...Once bitten by the Corvette bug it seems to last a lifetime.

Cassie said...

Tina ~ Someday you might win one too. Let me know!

Dee ~ She's pretty amazing. I bet she will get some good use out of it. She drives from Texas to Louisiana about once a week.

BlossomFlowerGirl & Danielle ~
I'm going to pass on the good wishes to my Auntie. She'll get a kick out of that!
