The Indianapolis Colts visit Mount Vernon
For Donna Jones of Evansville, Indiana, the trip to Mount Vernon for Wednesday's Make It Personal stop was quick and easy, but any trip in Donna's 1979 Chevy dedicated to the Colts is guaranteed to be fun.
Donna decided to dedicate her '79 Chevy Caprice to the Colts to show just how much she loves the team. For three years, Donnas has been working on making her car the ultimate Colts vehicle. The interior of the car matches the exterior, and includes blue seats with diamond cut upholstery. The back winshield is lined with Colts hats, and a Colts blanket also adorns the seats. The front of the Chevy has an authentic Lucas Oil Stadium license plate given to Donna as a gift from a friend. At night, neon blue lights can be seen shining from underneath the car.
Donna has been a Colts fan since around the time the Colts moved to Indianapolis. She quickly became a fan and her loyalty to the team has never waived. Donna believes it is important to support the Colts in any way she can, because she is proud to be a fan and wants everyone to know it. She tries to attend as many Colts events as possible, and came out to Mount Vernon on Wednesday to meet Colts players Eric Foster and Chad Simpson.
Donna is not the only Colts fan to show her spirit through her vehicle. At the Make It Personal stop in Mount Vernon, a bright blue jeep was parked nearby completely covered in all things Colts, giving Donna's Chevy some competition.
The Indianapolis Colts will travel to South Bend on Tuesday, July 7th for a Make It Personal stop, which will be followed by a Fan Fest event in Valparaiso on Wednesday, July 8th. For more information on the Make It Personal or Fan Fest events, please visit www.colts.com/events.
