We’ve had a busy month and a lot more fun than we typically have during the winter months! Early in the month, we bought a Vette near Pittsburgh and then decided to go into the city for the World of Wheels event at the convention center. This is a huge event full of awesome cars and vendors, and it was a lot of fun to go to a “car show” in January!
In early February, the car club that runs our favorite summer cruise had an indoor event at the Valley Mall in Hagerstown, MD. Every year, they invite a select group of cars to be displayed inside the mall, and it is pretty awesome to walk around the mall and see some awesome classics and even rat rods, while also doing some shopping.
We’ve also had a couple of interesting road trips! A couple of weeks ago, we bought another Corvette near Pittsburgh on a very wet muddy day and had to pull it out of the mud where it had been parked, using our truck and several tow straps. The next week, we traveled to West Virginia, Ohio, and Pittsburgh again, and made some friends along the way. Check out the pictures!
Until next time,
RJ & Holly Sottile
