Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1981 Chevrolet Corvette.

Of all the cars for me to pick on the AutoHunter auction site, my friends are likely to ask why I picked a 1981 Corvette in Frost Beige paint with a Camel leather interior. Well there is a story to that.

In the early 1980s when I was in the 8th grade, I rode the bus to school and there was a girl who lived down the street named Monique. What I remember most about her is that, even in the 8th grade, Monique had an incredible sense of style and was easily the best dressed girl at our school. She and her mom lived in a really neat mid-century modern house and parked in the garage was her mom’s Frost Beige C3 Corvette. Until that time this color was one of my least favorite car colors available, However, the Beige paint used on the late C3 Corvettes had a dramatic change depending on how the light hit it and as it got closer to dusk gave it a kind of glow that I thought looked absolutely spectacular. The C3 Corvette is the only car I like in Beige to this day, and I still think that it looks subtly elegant in a way that few C3 Vettes can.
