62WHEN Heavy Vette

While WHEN's Heavy Vette was not always candy apple red, it did get there eventually... and reportedly at a cost of about $5,000... more than the car cost when it was brand new.   Above and below are the two popular versions of WHEN's Corvette.  Above, WHEN promotional photo (courtesy Bob Mitchell) taken circa 1980.  Today the vehicle is once again white, serving as the promotional vehicle of KOKZ - Cool 105.7, an oldies formated station in Waterloo, Iowa.
