    Rich,
    Yes, you are correct. When I bought the car, I received several Trophies and magazines about the car that Gerald built.
    I need to try to get hold of him to see if he can give me more information about the car. I would like to see build photos and more history.
    She still looks brand new top and bottom. What a great job.

    Before he built the red 62, he built a sweet looking silver 62.

    Default Driving your new Vette

    Hi Roger ,
    I wish I were driving my Vettes during the winter, there is SO much salt on the road here now on the roads because it hasnt rain for qiute a while , it is suppose to get up to 60 today or tomorrow, first time . I still have about a foot of snow on my lawn. I normally do not go anywhere with the car until May. I have a black SUV and it is white now.
    Thursday we will be heading towards your area, we have friends in Pinehurst , we will be staying there for two days, then we will be heading further south to Aiken, will be staying there for two days. That couple has two old Corvettes, a C1 & a C-2. From there we will be heading further south again .
    Hope the weather stays good.
    Ed

    if it was my car (which it isn't), I would take the rear shocks and put them at the bottom mounting location to lower the car a bit in the back as long as the tires fit comfortably under the wheel wells.....

    Firstgear - I like the way your car looks also.
    But I do like the "Old School" look that my 62 has. I may play around with the settings from time to time. If so, I will post photos.

    Sure can see out of the 62 top better than the 54.
    The 54 has about the same with the hardtop as the convertible.

    A blue one and a red one. We needed a white one to complete the theme.

    A few of us got together at the Creek. Some members of the Carolina Chapter Solid Axle Corvette Club were in attendence. Fred with his Silver Blue 58, Mike with his 59 and Roger with his 62 Restomod.

    Default More Pics!

    Beautifully done ... I can't stop staring at your car. I have a 62 that I'm in the process of restoring/restomoding. If your not tired of taking picture of your car, could I request a few more ? Could you take more take pictures underneath facing read end/4 link setup, underneath mid section and underneath front suspension/headers ... and close up on the hood, top view and under view? Thanks for all the great pix you have posted.

    Thanks, Keith
