Ed has a customer down in Va Beach with a beautifully done C2 resto-rod. Tube frame, LS7 and I believe C5 suspension. Very very well done.

You mean this one?

Actually he lives in Chesapeake, right next door to Virginia Beach. That's my ratty 63 in the other photo.

Car was in the Chip's Choice area two years ago when they had the restomods
featured.

The car also had a cover and inside spread in Corvette Fever last year. It is on an SRIII Motorsports chassis, powered by a worked LS7, Tremec 6 spd. Car is an absolute blast.

That car is Bad Ass, I saw it down at VA Speed once while Ed was checking his tune or something. It's very cool all over. I always hoped I'd see it at a show or cruise so I could get a longer look but haven't yet.

I have a '65 about 75% restored (it runs, and that was the important thing at the time). It's a 300 hp flavor convertible with a 3.08 rear, sidepipes, knock offs, Nassau Blue, and Black leather. The emblems were removed, the chrome on the tail lights were removed, and a third light was added and I like it better that way.

It was my fathers. He bought it brand new in 65 after some idiot decided to run into his '64. He did a bunch of Gymkhana along with shows at the Cavalier with it along with it being the reason I'm alive - he was on a date with a friend of my mother's (and my mom was on a date with a friend of my father's) who only wanted to date him because he had a Corvette. Mom ran into Dad a few weeks or so later (it obviously didn't work out with the woman dad was on a date with - in fact she was a bridesmaid in their wedding) and they hit it off...

The car has over 250k miles on it and is in remarkable shape for the age it is. It sat from roughly 83 until 05 when he and I finished the restoration as far as we could given the time. My father had Lou Gherig's disease and I wanted to make sure that the car was running while he was still able to drive it. He didn't get to drive it because the muscle decay in his arms was too much for him to drive, but he did get to drive it.

Since he died in '06, I haven't had much time or money to really consider doing anything on it (that, and I think Mom wasn't ready to have it out of the garage)- so it's sat in my mother's garage in Virginia Beach. This fall, I'm hoping to get down there with a friend who has a truck to bring it up to Michigan and get the resto finished. I still need to rewire it and redo the suspension along with a few other smaller things.

If I can help it, this car will never leave my family.



And an older picture when Dad towed a '57 from NW PA to Norfolk with his '65.

That is a beauty, glad to hear you plan on holding on to it.

Nice story and beautiful car.

Your dad towing that '57 would have been a great site to see!
