Paul Bunyan is a popular dude but I could not find any events near me. Maybe do some reading?

Notwithstanding all the political news today, I am very aware of insurance having recently enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan. Yesterday I received a booklet (200 or so pages) describing all my benefits. I think Paul Bunyan would be more interesting!

I hate to read insurance literature. I hope that you can make it through those 200 pages.

That 1953 model would likely be very sought after.

300 is a very low number. It doesn't seem like there would be many still around.

According to this article "225 remain in existence today". A recent list price was $533,500.00!

I thought it would be a valuable car, but had no idea it was that valuable!

I'm not much of a shutterbug but hugs are always nice, or even a handshake.

Speaking of insurance, I am rather sure that the premiums for that car would be beyond my budget.

I wonder if most of the people who have that Corvette actually drive it, or do they just keep it at home to protect it and admire it? A car is meant to be driven, but I bet that some people would rather not risk it or would only take it out very occasionally.

I agree that a car should be driven to be enjoyed but there is something to be said for keeping it in pristine condition: it cost about $3500 when new and the value has increased considerably.
Every vehicle that I'd owned decreased in value until I finally traded it.

It seems like every time we have some celestial event, it is cloudy or raining here. We have a 100% chance of rain today.
