    When 74-year-old Joe Garrett woke up Tuesday morning, he didnít expect a group of strangers to grant his dying wish.

    The cancer patient has always loved Corvettes, and wanted one last ride in the American sports car while he could still leave his house.

    The Myrtle Beach Corvette Club answered his wish Tuesday with a fleet of 10 Corvettes, each one a different color or model, and each driven by community members willing to spend the afternoon in the sun.
