I've got a guy who is looking to find out just how many '59 vettes are
still out on the road. Does anyone know? Or know of a spot where I can
start looking to dig this up? Hit my e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have anything for me. It would be appreciated. - Bill, Corvette
50 states with
then quite a few in Canada
most of the rest are in US unregistered (look in barns in the mid west )
thats where they always show up in the fantasy, right?
then everywhere else in the World
subtract that from production run and it
leaves 33 cars no longer on this planet
is that answer dumber than the question?
I was checking the ah specs on the end line rotary gurder
I haven't seen a '59 in a few years, so I can only assume it was wrecked
which leaves zero.
I know there's one '58 left. (in my bro's garage)
Here's waving to ya - \||||

Frenzy, Hard to say for sure, but, not many based on the production
run ; 50's Corvettes in nice shape are a Collectors item . My friend
had a 1959 when he was 17 back in 1970 -- he was the envy of every guy.
SHOULDA- Woulda if I coulda....LOL
My Bride in 1966 was driving a 55 Chevy Belair 2 Door Hardtop
V8.... Nice car BUT it did use Oil... and I think oil was 59 cents a
quart...(not sure...but it was cheap)
We sold that car to buy a 61 VW which was much more economical to
I mean the rent on our appartment was 85 Bucks a month ..Hamburgers at
McDonalds were 15 cents each... we just could not afford to drive that
"Big" 55 Chevy...
I think I was making $1.25 an hour part time and we both were going
to college...full time working 2-3 parttime jobs yada yad yada
Yea I shoulda if I coulda....but I din;'t know a damn thing...(not
much different then today actually)

Here's my "shoulda woulda if I coulda" story--
In '64 I had, "put one in the hangar" and had just sold my red '61 to
buy a "family car." A mathematician in our ballistics division had her
'53 daily driver up for sale. Even though it was in cherry condition
she had been asking 4 grand. Laughably, she said it had "collector
potential." One morning she said that she might drop the price to 3
grand to move the car--she had her eye on a '65.
Who in the world would want a 10 year old white Corvette with a stinking
6 cylinder, "clatter and splash" truck engine in it? (OK Dad, no
clatter, just splash-- or were they squirting oil onto the walls in '53 ?).
Remember that in the "shoulda woulda if I coulda" game, it's always,
"can you top this" and remember, the last liar never stands a chance !
