In the morning, this was the view. That's St. Petersburg in the mist across Tampa Bay.

The show site, right by the beach. Once again, the two Corvettes Conquer Cancer
Vettes are side by side. The blue/white car is Richard Fleming's spectacular other
cool Vette, a GTP replica.

The TV show Tailfins and Chrome was there filming the event. Here the host,
Jake, interviews Doreen Ernandez, the event organizer, and Richard Fleming, owner
of the GTP and the old CCC Vette. Then, after coming up with the requisite
$25 donation to the American Cancer Society, Jake signs the hood.
