No doubt about it, the vehicle in the photo is a 1961 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. The vanity tags say it all. 1961 was the final year that whitewall tires were offered on the Corvette and the above tires are beautiful. It was also the last year for the option to have the "coves" in a contrasting color- an option not selected in the above vehicle. The 1961 production, 10,939 Corvettes were produced. Half of the buyers opted for the removable top. The base price was 3,934* The above driver has a pretty special vehicle.
This weekend was the perfect weather for being outside. We captured this photo at the intersection where New Garden Road meets Ballinger Road. Maybe he was en route to a meeting of the Triad Corvette Club. They have many fun meet ups for local members. If you are in the market for a new Corvette, the price can range from 50,000 to 100,00 plus.
