Every Chevrolet convertible since 1912*

Image_3

The private collection (pictured above and below) belongs to Dennis Albaugh in Ankeny, Iowa (just north of Des Moines).

It consists of 110+ Chevrolet convertibles —

every year* from 1912 to 1975 along with Corvette convertibles from 1953 to 1975.

There is no 1939 Chevrolet convertible — because Chevy didn't make a convertible that year.

1975 marked the swan song for Chevy drop tops.

If you drive to the garage and tell the attendant you would like to see the collection, you will be warmly welcomed.

Equal time: Clifford Marsiglio responds to Dan Ariely's "Save Your Own Life"

Risky_business_rebecca_de_mornay

At this time yesterday I posted a recent essay by Ariely, the eminent Duke University professor of behavioral economics and visiting professor at MIT's Media Laboratory.

From the heartland (Bloomington, Indiana) came a dissenting view from the man known to constant readers as clifyt, concluding, "Bad decisions lead to living. We are human, and we are irrational. Force someone to be rational, you are forcing them to be something they are not. When you stop being human, you stop living. I'd rather be human and dead than something else and alive...."

I must say that last sentence provides much to ponder.

If sounds were filling you could make it the basis of an all-chocolate all-the-time diet.
