Corvette Fun Facts: 
The 1960 Corvette was unchanged outside but further improved inside.  The top "fuelie" V-8 went to a thumping 315 bhp, and a revised suspension gave all models the same handling prowness as the heavy-duty chassis option, which was dropped.  Some drivetrain components switched from steel to aluminum to save weight.  Corvette was adding competition trophies, winning at Pikes Peak and Sebring.  the Vette also claimed an important showroom victory as the 1960 sales broke the magic 10,000 barrier. 
This month's humor isn't car related but I think it's funny.  A concerned woman brought her listless pet duck "Cuddles" into the local Vet to see what was wrong.  The Vet looked at the duck and said "I'm sorry to tell you but your duck is dead. The distrought woman said "Oh no!  That can't be true!  There must be another test you can conduct.  I just can't accept your rationale that "Cuddles" is dead!"  "OK lady" said the Vet "I will get additional verification."  The Vet whistles and a black labrador comes in the room puts its paws up on the table, sniffs the duck, looks at the Vet, rolls its eyes, and shakes its head to verify it's dead.  The Vet reaffirms to the woman that the duck is dead.  She in turn still can't accept this and asks for another test.  The Vet says "OK" and lets a cat into the room.  The cat jumps up on the table licks the duck, looks at the Vet, rolls it's eyes and shakes its head.  The Vet tells the lady "That's it, your duck is dead." 
The woman graciously accepts the Vet's explanation and the Vet in turn gives her a bill for $150. "A $150 bill just to tell me my duck is dead, that is outragous!" said the woman.  The Vet said "Well normally it's $20, but with the lab report and the cat scan it amounts to $150."
