Jimvettehobby.com and Best of Vette Vues Magazine
Jim vettehobby's website is one of my favorite resources for Corvette enthusiasts. In addition to his website, I read articles from Corvette Mike Vietro and Best of Vette Vues magazine. I'm excited to explore these sources, and hopefully, someday I'll be able to own a Corvette. But until then, I'm content to browse the site and find out what else is out there.
Corvette Mike Vietro
Corvette fanatics will be delighted to learn that a former gas station attendant turned professional car broker is headed to Everett, Massachusetts, to visit his successful Corvette Mike's dealerships. Vietro, who runs several dealerships across the country including one in Carver, Mass., is considered the world's foremost authority on vintage Corvettes. Since the early 1990s, Vietro has appeared on numerous television interviews and has authored several Corvette books. His passion for Corvettes is apparent in his numerous articles, video and magazine appearances.
Before starting his Corvette hobby, Vietro worked as an aerographic mate in the Marines. He left the Marines in 1978 and went to college to get a degree. While attending university in San Francisco, Vietro accompanied a friend to purchase a new car. The resulting sales pitch led to a job at the Toyota dealership, and he soon purchased a 1978 Corvette. It changed the course of his life.
A Corvette has long been a fixture in American culture. It is the only sports car with both looks and performance. And, as a bonus, it has great gas mileage. A new Corvette can achieve a highway mileage of 30 miles, and an urban range of fifteen to eighteen miles. Corvettes also deliver a satisfying driving experience. The car's cool exterior, sleek lines and powerful engine have made it an icon for American culture.
