Another Mural City
That smog ahead must be LA!
Yes, another WigWam Motel
(No, I didn't stay in this one)
"Corvette Mike" Vietro became our first sponsor when Sandy started
Corvettes Conquer Cancer in 1998! We met Mike @ Bloomington Gold.
After talking with Sandy, he pulled his Mobil card out of his wallet and
said "Here, use this." We did, for 3 years!
Later that summer we stayed at his house for a couple days.

Mike is also a sponsor for the C6, helping to pay for it in 2006!
"MIKE" in the Corvette lettering
It's a shootout!
Always great to see you, Mike!
On a whim, after dinner I went in search of Jay Leno's Garage.
Proof, via GPS data from above photo and Google Maps!
Further evidence - the burnouts on the street out front!
On the way back to the Ramada I drove the entire length of legendary Mulholland Drive.
