|A.J. & Friends Classic Cars
In the winter of 2004, my grandson Colin and I went to look at this 1961 270 HP Vette at Roanoke Motors, the biggest
Viper dealer in the U.S. They had taken in a red '61 Vette and a black '61 Vette in trade for a new Viper.
The red one was gone by the time we got there, but the black one was priced at $34,000. I almost bought
it, but hesitated too long. Now, 2 years later, that same car would be worth $10,000 more. 1961,'62 and '63s are
my favorite Vettes. Never had one. Worked on a few. Someday???
