    1966 Corvette:  Red sports car is the pride and joy of its owner-1966-corvette_interior_edited-jpg

    On two different occasions, 81-year-old Dee Clark looked at his red 1966 Corvette roadster, smiled with pride and gushed about the vehicle that has been so good to him for over four decades.

    “I think,” Clark said, “I have the prettiest car ever made.”

    Clark first laid eyes on the ’66 Corvette in 1969 when he drove by a Ford dealership near 77th and Metcalf Avenue in his 1952 MG TD.

    Call it love at first sight. Clark knew he had to have that car. His love affair with the Corvette started in the early 1950s.

    “When I was in service in 1953, right outside the gate at Fort Hood, Texas, was a Chevy dealer, and he had a brand new Corvette sitting on a big ramp,” Clark said. “It was a beautiful white Corvette with a red interior, and I fell in love with it right then.

    “It took me 16 years before I could afford one.”

    So when Clark saw the ’66 Corvette in a dealer’s lot, he quickly inquired about it, traded in his MG TD and paid $2,600 for his new car that the dealer hadn’t even had time to clean up from the previous owner.
