I’m putting a challenge out to everyone in Corvette-Land!
I assert that my good friend and neighbor, Bill Hatch, holds the record for the longest continuous ownership of a single Corvette.
Bill purchased his new 1957 Corvette in July of 1957 and he still owns the car! So he has owned the car for 62 years, plus.
The Challenge: If anyone can identify someone who is a longer continuous owner of a specific Corvette, let’s hear it! If Bill doesn’t hold the record, then we need to celebrate whoever does!
I have written about Bill in this blog as well as a story that appeared in The National Corvette Museum's "America's Sports Car". Here are a few of my previous blog posts about Bill:
Bill's car is no trailer queen -- he DRIVES it! His favorite place to drive was to the beach for playing volleyball with his buddies. Here is a shot of me and Bill at Moonlight Beach in San Diego!
Once we had a 50th Birthday Party, not for Bill, but for the car!
OK, Corvette (and other) friends -- spread the word. Let's find out who is the person who has owned a Corvette longer than anyone else?
