It’s not the only Corvette Stanley has owned.

The first new car he ever purchased after KISS made it big was a 1977 Corvette and he purchased one of the first year eighth-generation mid-engine Stingray coupes in 2020 and said “it raises the bar with cutting edge technology. It’s a machine I’m proud to drive AND it’s drop dead GORGEOUS. I LOVE mine!”
