Friends and Vettes

Who: Joe DiChiara 
Where: Torrington, CT 
What: '60 C1, '04 C5 coupe

Pictured here are my buddy Tony Durso (on the left) and I with our Vettes. Tony has a '60, which he restored himself. The car turned out great, and he has won many awards with it.

Years ago, I had a '69 Stingray. When I sold it in 1977, I vowed to own another Corvette some day. Three years ago I found this '04 coupe; I'll never sell it.

King of the Road

Who: Bruce Locker 
Where:
Las Vegas, NV 
What:
'93 C4 ZR-1 

It has always been my dream to own a C4 ZR-1. That dream became a reality in July 2011, when I purchased my '93. My find was definitely a “needle in the haystack,” as I located it online in Wisconsin. The listing stated that the car had always been garaged, with just over 22,000 original miles and the color scheme I wanted: Polo Green with a tan leather interior.

The car is a true survivor and completely stock. It also has all of its original documentation, including the buildsheet and the window sticker. There were only 448 ZR-1s built during the 1993 model year, of which only 22 were Polo Green. The LT5 engine is exotic and a real thrill to take through the gears.

Having joined two local Las Vegas–area Corvette clubs (the Las Vegas Corvettes Association and Vegas Valley Vettes), I have had many opportunities to show off this beautiful Vette.

My "King Of The Road" is truly special.
