Like Father, like son

There it is, driving as fast as you can imagine down the street, the ZR-1 Corvette, red, t-top, banned from driving it in the house because it was too speedy! Grandson #1 was the recipient of this gift from grandma.

You see, Daddy has one also, but his is the real thing. A ZR-1 Corvette (vintage version, 1994 model), inherited from departed Uncle Charlie, and a most beloved occupant of the garage spaces that are available for vehicles at their house. It gets the inside treatment, and one other vintage vehicle gets to reside inside, while the working vehicles that take people to work, take the kids to school, make the many trips to the grocery store get to reside outside in the Iowa weather.

So Grandson #1 was thrilled to have a nice day while he visited grandma, one in which he could drive his new RC car as fast as he possibly could, and give it a whirl up and down grandma's street. It was so fun to watch. And he loved it, just like his daddy does when he drives his speedy red Corvette.
