Tom Foley: Baby You're Much 2 Fast
Attention political and hot-rod junkies: Now's your once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a little red corvette once driven by the speaker of the House of Representatives -- the speaker who was a 30-year incumbent until the GOP tidal wave of 1994 swept him and his party out of power.
That's right, former speaker Tom Foley's (D-Wash.) 2001 shiny red convertible corvette is up for sale. And much to his chagrin.
The former speaker, who is now 79 and largely retired from the lobbying firm Akin Gump, is no longer driving. But it sounds as if he'll always have a soft spot for his hot rod.
"He loves that red corvette," says Foley's wife, Heather, who listed the car on The Big Lot used car sales Web site. "He always wanted a Corvette, all his life."
Read more about Foley and how he came to buy his Corvette -- and the type his wife insisted he buy -- in today's "On the Hill" column.
