    As a 12-year-old in Falls City, Neb., Larry Cook saw a Chevrolet Corvette and dreamed of owning it one day. It belonged to an elderly lady.

    “She was the only person I had seen with a Corvette,” said Cook, of Excelsior Springs. “I told my dad after we moved to Iowa that I wanted that car. It went up for sale in an estate auction.”

    So Cook’s dad went to the auction, heard that the price was $4,000 and told his son he decided not to buy it.

    But the dream of owning a Corvette remained vivid for Cook. He just had to put it on hold.

    Once Cook’s youngest son graduated from Northwest Missouri State, the idea of owning a Corvette became more of a reality. After surviving a heart attack, Cook knew the time was right.

    “I thought, ‘Forty-nine years old. I am going to go for it,’” he said.

    His search took him to an advertisement he saw in The Kansas City Star in May 1995.
