Corvette Mike's
"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.
Thanks Mike!

On a whim, after dinner I went in search of Jay Leno's Garage.

Success!

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.
