NOTE: The photos in the gallery are not of my Corvette, whereas the one in the magazine article is. 

I will replace the photos if and when I ever come across them.


  • Through the years, I always had a favorite Corvette model – a 1967 big-block coupe. So, when I got the chance to pick one up that was mid-way through a restoration at a reasonable price – I didn't hesitate a minute.

  • The car had already been stripped, but after a little research I found that it had originally been white with a medium blue hood stripe (which matched its medium blue upholstery).


  • The best part was that it was a near fully optioned coupe.

  • I spent several months finishing the restoration, then it went to Chip Whittington for a factory correct white with blue paint job.


  • I'll have to admit that the restoration was a lot more difficult than I had ever imagined. Just one little piece of hardware can take days to locate and cost dozens of times more than it would have cost in 1967.


  • Like always, money was tight, especially after completing a project, so when I received an offer for $16,500.00, I immediately took the deal!


  • I remember thinking, “This guy must be nuts! I mean really... how much more would a car like this ever be worth?”


  • Please don't tell me.
