A Southwest Airlines pilot finds memories from youth in the 1970 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray—and an unexpected connection with a former owner
Jason Laureys, 40, a Southwest Airlines pilot from Wauconda, Ill., on his 1970 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, as told to A.J. Baime.
When I was little, instead of a stuffed animal, I slept with toy trucks and Matchbox cars. By the time I was in junior high, because I loved cars so much, my parents had taught me to drive. We had a family friend whose husband owned a 1979 Corvette, and she let me drive it through my neighborhood.
