1998 Corvette

By Owner George Migliore

Here is my 1998 C5 Corvette. The first owner was a lawyer from Baton Rouge, LA. Second owner is the father of a Miss Louisiana contestant who used the ’Vette for parades so his daughter could ride in it. I’m the third owner.

The car has over 135,000 miles on it and was in sad shape when I got it. I had a complete brake job done, and I replaced all of the interior to match the exterior color. I also had the A/C overhauled and had a quite a bit of engine work done. Only the rear fenders had decals, so I had extra decals placed on it. I have invested over $8,000 in the car.

I had a 1996 Corvette previously that I was restoring, but ran out of funds, then gave up on it. Then I saw this C5 on eBay and jumped on it. I’m a member of the Greater New Orleans Corvette Club.
I’ve commanded army tanks, driven motorcycles and flown planes. Now I’m over 60 and it’s about time I owned a Corvette!



Bio: I retired from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in April of 2002. I was forced into disabled retirement from the Federal Government as a Federal Police Officer due to a motorcycle accident.

I was assigned to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs in New Orleans LA. In 2002 I transferred from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Bureau TSA. Before that I provided security to a private security company.

I was divorced after 13 years. Married again in an airplane over the Superdome on my 40th birthday on national TV! The first couple ever to get married flying in a plane in the U.S. I have one daughter from this marriage and a step daughter. My daughter is a dental assistant and a competition cheerleader and travels all over the country, and my step daughter is a teacher at John Curtis Lower Private School in Jefferson Parish.

  9. Very very nice. I’ve owned my 1985 Corvette since 1988. It is a warrior… over 400,000 miles on it. Gave it to my 22 year old son 6 years ago when he was a HS Junior. He wanted it painted “matte black” instead of the silver that it had been. Took it to MAACO, they painted it “Competition Black” and its looking good. Of course, as ‘Vettes go, It needs constant tinkering; there is ALWAYS something on it that could be better. I don’t know if the c5’s or c6’s are like that, but the c4’s always were like that.
