6 November, 2017 Volume 51 - Issue 11 Corvette Happiness (Could a Corvette really make you Happy?) Oh Yes, I think so. I am referring to the simple happiness of everyday life. Just, look around and see all the happy people at our Corvette club. Why else would we sit in lawn chairs by our Corvettes, enthusiastically answering Corvette questions to total strangers at car shows? I never met a big block or a small block that I didn t like. The fellowship of our group/club is one of the best ways to experience the Happiness of sharing our enthusiasm with each other in ever day life. This is not raw materialism, rather, but rather, it s genuine contentment in life. Don t just put your CORVETTE in your garage - Rather make it into the Corvette Room with Classic Corvette memorabilia. Never mind a Happy Hour, I m talking about a Happy Room! You may find yourself getting up several times through the night to go look at your new CORVETTE, but this is just fine, because this is a CORVETTE! These obsessive trips to the garage will subside over time. Well, what s not to like? Some people even set up a table in their CORVETTE Happy Room to enjoy meals with friend s. Are you spending quality time with your Corvettes? We should all have this special Happy Room. Just think, when you have a Corvette, you don t need to travel anywhere. Just the ownership of a Corvette, is a constant source of Happiness. So go ahead, spend hours in your own Corvette Happy Room. Studies show that Corvette people are among the happiest people in the world. Why else would people pursue life- long multiple Corvette collections? When purchasing a new home, don t worry about how many square feet it has; Rather consider how many Corvettes you can get in the garage. But more importantly, do we love our Corvettes, and are we thrilled to share our CORVETTE enthusiasm with each other? Do you feel that natural enthusiasm to share Corvette stories with your friends? Are you genuinely committed to Love, Honor and Cherish your Corvette(s) from this day forward, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, until DEBT do us part?... I Do. People who Need Corvettes are the Luckiest People in the World. Wasn t that a famous song? So, Be Happy with your Corvette(s), but just Remember,The Days of our Lives are Flying by Faster than a Super-Charged ZR1 CORVETTE! Finally, I close with the words of an Old Amish Proverb, which says: In Life, as with Corvettes, If you can t see the Bright side, then polish the Dull side. I was just thinking, when you look straight forward at a C6 Corvette (front view) You definitely see a smiley face, Really! Which proves my point, That Corvettes even look Happy, Just like you! Happily Submitted to the Happy Members of the Wichita Air Capital CORVETTE Club, Marvin Soliah Page 6
