1962 Chevrolet Corvette - "62 For Funn

Life's Too Short To Not Have Some Solid-Axle Fun

Virga enjoyed the lengthy restoration process, despite the fact that it's, as she puts it, "an ongoing process." Driving a '62 is certainly a unique experience, at least compared to more modern cars. "I'm more careful with it than with my '96," Virga tells us. "You don't go whipping around into parking spaces with this car. And you learn to leave a little bit of room when stopping. Going fast isn't a problem, but stopping is." She drives the '62 often, making frequent trips to Hot August Nights and driving to Central California's wine country with her club. "It's a joy to drive," Virga says. "Everybody notices...I don't go anywhere in it quietly." Sounds like a lot of fun-which is, of course, the whole point.
