Today I thought I would show you my husband's mistress!!! She is a little younger than I am, has most of her original parts and is his favorite color, blue.
Meet Miss Blue. She is a 1966 Chevrolet Corvette. Back when we were dating in the 1970's, he would always say one day he was going to own a corvette. Well that wish came true for him. He purchased this corvette 8 years ago from his brothers neighbor and it became a part of our family. He really doesn't drive it too much, mostly just to car shows and cruise in's.
Do you see the guitar in front of the car? My dear husband made that! He bought a "donor" electric guitar at a pawn shop and pulled the electronics from it. My son designed the shape of the guitar and helped with the construction. The knobs on the body are made to look like dash board knobs, the Chevrolet insignia is on the back, the trademark crossed flags are on the neck with "Corvette" inlaid in mother of pearl up the neck. Of course it is finished to match the color of the much adored Corvette!
This weekend is going to be a very busy one! Saturday night my son is participating in the high school talent show. He is playing "Voodoo Chile" by Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan on the guitar and his friend will accompany him on the drums. Sunday I will be having my Grandmother and Sister down for lunch!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and a blessed Mothers Day!
