YAK Car Pic of the Day

99 vette pwtr whtfld f copy

Okay, so what’s the first thing you noticed about this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette coupe which is different from most of the newer ‘Vettes you see today on the road? That’s right, it’s actually wearing a front license plate. Most seem to wear the “Corvette” blank on the front bumper (see brochure illustration below) which admittedly looks better, but I suspect is highly illegal in New York state. In 1999 the Corvette, for the first time, came in three body styles: the coupe (with its removable roof panel), the convertible (with its fold-down fabric roof), and the new hardtop — the first fixed-roof Corvette since the ’67 Sting Ray. I passed this light pewter metallic example yesterday in Wheatfield.

    Also highly illegal is parking in a handicapped parking space unless you’re Carl Paladino, of course.

      Pfft, this guy is an amateur. Krazy Karl would have parked diagonally across three handicapped spots
