- Tell us about your Corvette: 1971 Coupe, restoration in progress.
- Location: Waterboro, Maine
No, I'm not a professional mechanic, restorer or web developer. Instead, I'm an engineer with a love for turning wrenches and spending vast amounts of time locked away in the garage.
In my early years I spent a lot of time working on my various vehicles and toys, a lot was learned during those years. Cleaning carburetors, rebuilding engines and 'tweaking' my motors to go faster quickly developed into a hobby that's stuck with me to this day.
As for Corvettes, I've always had a thing for them. In my grade school years I remember seeing one in the school parking lot quite regularly. It was a black C3 and I would always looked for it as the school bus turned the bend into the drive each morning. I loved it's curving body lines and sleek styling, and I hoped that someday I'd be lucky enough to own such a beautiful car.
Naturally, my hobbies combined and a project was born. After several months of searching I purchased a 1971 Stingray as a project car. This is my first restoration of a classic car, actually its my first restoration of any type. Although the project has tuned out to be a lot more work than I ever expected, it's been an enjoyable experience.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your stay!
