Now for the story. My uncle bought this car when I was about 13 years old. I remember is was the coolest car that I had ever seen. In 1989 he sold the car to his brother (my other uncle) He drove it a bit and then parked in the garage. Over the years he had got the car running to move it around to get it out of the way but only to sit for more years. about 4 years ago he put a new gas tank in the car and tires. his intention was to clean it up and drive it. It moved from the big garage to the little garage (about 50 feet) and sat a little more. After 15 years of asking about the car I saw my uncle at the localrestaurant while my wife and I was at breakfast and asked him about the car again. I was amazed that he said he would sell me the car. So off we went to move all the stuff that hadaccumulatedaround this rare Corvette. I hauled it home got it running again and drove it around town a lot. I took it to a couple of Corvette shows and boy does this thing get the attention. People wouldliterallywear the grass down to dirt just to look at the car. I just cant bring myself to clean it up. This is how I have remembered the car for the past 20 years and when do you get to see a high horse power corvette covered in 25 years of dust.
