Saw your page for the first time today. Nice work! You already have a '90 Turquoise there, but here is mine anyway.
I'm Tom, age 56, married and one daughter in her thirties. Five years ago I got the urge to get my second vette ( I had a '65 roadster in 1972), but I wanted a color that not everyone had. I saw this '90 Turquoise advertised in Corvette Trader and immediately loved the color.
I live in Portland, Oregon but the car was near Austin, Texas. After the owner convinced me that it was worth the trip, my daughter and I flew down and I bought the car, after having it checked out. We had a great time driving it back to Portland, especially through the desert Southwest, where even the truckers are going 80MPH! We got lots of attention as we'd pass, with the top down, going a "little" faster than they were.
The car has been perfect, and I get nothing but compliments where ever I take it around the Northwest.
The local Rose City Corvette Club participates in the Miss Oregon Pageant every year at the coast. They carry the contestants in a parade riding in roadsters. As a member a few years ago, I was fortunate to have the 1st runnerup in my car who was a very bright pre-med, Asian girl, wearing a Tangerine colored dress. Needless to say she looked super perched atop my Turquoise colored Vette. We received many compliments that day.
Well, the car is still as beautiful as ever, and we really enjoy it during the good weather. Even at my age, it's a great toy!
