WELCOME to Cockatoos and Corvettes

 Charlie and Peggy!

We like four things, each others company,

our birds, our 1998 Indy Pace Car Corvette and Rig Dispatchers.

This site will share some of our feelings and

images with you. Hope you enjoy it!

Got Cockatoo? Go Here!

Flying, wild Cockatoos!

Henry Beston wrote in "The Outermost House"
Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice,
man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge
and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion.
We patronize them for their incompleteness,
for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves.
And therein we err,and greatly err.
For the animal shall not be measured by man.
In a world older and more complete than ours,
they moved finished and complete,
gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained,
living by voices we shall never hear.
They are not brethren, they are not underlings;
they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time,
fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.

General Motors Media Press Release

"People have come to expect that the exterior
and interior of an Indy Pace Car will be
unique, and this Corvette convertible will be
no exception. The exterior features vivid
yellow Indy 500 graphics over a special Radar
Blue paint job. The in-your-face yellow
wheels are unique to the pace car and tie in
with the yellow interior accents, a treatment
not offered on stock Corvette models."
