"I had to wait seven months for it. It is an automatic, probably the only one in existence. I really don't know how to drive a stick shift. Several of my friends have tried to teach me, and I just can't get the hang of it."
Titko had Corvettes in the past, loved them and wanted another one.
Since her father and partner, Jerry Titko, had the 25th-anniversary 'vette, it seemed appropriate she have the 50th-anniversary version.
"One of the fun things about driving a Corvette is the 'Corvette Wave.' You're driving as always with your hands at 2 and 10 on the steering wheel. When you pass another 'vette, you lift one hand up barely off the wheel and just wave your fingers at them. It's like a cool, slow, 'How you doin?' kind of wave. Every 'vette driver knows that."
First car: "A 1983 maroon Plymouth Turismo I bought with my own money for my 16th birthday."
Previous car: A goldenrod 2001 Mercedes 320
Dream car: "A Lamborghini in yellow or neon purple!"
