They look pretty cool, and its nice to know if you got it at a BJ auction - the same paid shills that bid the prices up when you bought the the car will be there next year when you sell it.
There are a couple of mid year resto cars around here that I'd sure like to have!
Thanks. Dag burnit. Just what I was lokn fer.
When Barry Blomquist walked into the Roadster Shop in Mundelein, Illinois, the last thing on his mind was starting another project. He was just there to pick up some parts to continue working on his '56 F-1 when he saw a '62 Corvette across the shop floor, and it stopped him in his tracks. He flashed back to high school in the '60s and watching episodes of Route 66, as Tod Stiles and Buz Murdock cruised their Corvette across the country looking for adventure. A first-gen Corvette was every adolescent male's dream, and Barry was no exception.
One of the bad things about resto-mods is that most of the time they use up good old Corvettes. That means less original Corvettes left for future generations of Corvette buyers.
But I sure like the ones posted here.
