1959 Chevrolet Corvette spotted in Boca Raton, FL

1958 Corvette

My aunt has become quite a car spotter since the time she and my uncle spent in London–and they certainly know the right places to look. Boca Raton, not the greatest place for car spotting even 10 years ago, has exploded as a great place to find classic cars sitting next to exotics (noveau riche vs old money). The first-generation Corvette is not a big favorite of mine, but if I had to pick one of them, I think the 1958-1959 model would be my favorite. It lacks the gaping maw of a grille shoved onto the Sixties models but looks mature and sophisticated compared to the single-headlights 1955-1957 models, and still packs small-block Chevy power. When can I move to Florida?
