We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I see you doubt yourself in later comments, but you nailed the year. The hood louvers were no longer available after 63. (It says Corvette on the dash, so even most Democrat Presidential candidates could have figured the make and model.)
A few years back a friend, flush from a successful IT startup, bought a pristine split window coupe. His wife wouldn’t even ride in it. According to her it was uncomfortable, didn’t handle as well as her Mini, was too hot and was too loud.
He sold it a year later, proving once again that true love knows no bounds!
