We purchased our Corvette back in 1993, AND SOLD IT IN FALL OF 2000.
Over the next four years it underwent a thorough and extensive incremental, and historically accurate, body-on restoration. Close to $50,000 (documented) has been spent on a complete rebuilding of the car including: engine, carb, transmission, clutch, brakes, interior, paint and body, chrome, suspension, etc. It had 118,000 original miles, and we were the eleventh registered owner. Fortunately for us, this Corvette was not seriously molested, and other than an after market intake, it was a VERY well worn, and original vehicle. Even the original spare tire was in its carrier.
Soon after becoming Corvette owners, we joined the Corvette Club of Ontario (CCO) and later, the National Corvette Restorers Society Ontario Chapter (NCRS). With each show and event we attended, we learned more of what Corvettes are all about, and what steps we had to take to transform our car into a concours and show winner. We also found friendship and camaraderie with a great group of fellow enthusiasts. Stu served two years on the CCO exec as Competition Director, and was responsible for organizing the club show events, such as indoor event displays and show n’ shines.
Visit these next few pages and get a glimpse of what Corvette ownership can be like, including all the restoration work, vehicle details, club activities, events, and even some helpful links. We hope you enjoy our album, and look forward to hearing from you.
