Well, I don’t know about that ! I had a short day my senior year in high school, so I got a full time job right away in order to buy the vette. After a half day in school, I’d drive the vette to my full time job.
Sure did have a lot of fun though ! Good times.
I remember a couple guys that got brand new Z28 camaro’s from their parents (67 & 68) when I was in high school. I wasn’t so lucky. I had to work for what I wanted.
