What a Weekend!

Troy had an EXTRA Long weekend. Troy, his dad Mike, Michael Andrew and Frank Smith Jr. all drove to the state of Virginia and back this weekend. Their purpose to bring home Troy's dads new 1986 Corvette. This make his 3rd Corvette that he owns right now! But I think they all agree they don't ever plan on traveling nonstop that for a LONG time, if ever again! The trip there I think took 29 to 30 hours and was a little over 1500 miles. The way home was 1600 some miles. They had planned on it taking a little bit shy of 24 hours to get there, but they ran into a blizzard!! Troy said he didn't get to see a lot of the country because he was concentrating on driving or it was dark out. Oh well! Troy did not take a camera, which I can only imagine some of the pictures I would have gotten from them after being in a vehicle from Friday Morning at 6 AM to Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. with MY camera, girls, their butts, and you can use your imagination. But we are happy they made it home safely! Troy said the best part was he met a lot of really nice people along the way. He said if they stopped Troy would talk to people and ask directions or just visit and everyone was nice!

The car even has a t.v. It came this way from the factory it was originally over $30,000. It was a pace car in 1986 too.
Here is the car! I am excited to get to see it in person.
