One day a few years ago, Jason was out on the job reading electric meters when something out the corner of his eye caught his attention. In the back of a dusty garage he thought he could see an old car. The only details he could make out were the quad headlights glittering in the sunlight, but that was all he needed. He instantly knew what it was..
It was a 1958 Corvette! He was shocked and very excited because he has always been a Corvette enthusiast and this could be the find of his life. Since Jason was working, he couldn’t investigate it more then. Instead he decided to return after work for a closer look and to meet the car’s owner.
When Jason returned later that day, he met the owner who turned out to be a kind old lady. She told him that she had owned the car since 1963 and that it was not for sale. She told him she had not driven the car since 1980 and that it had set in that garage ever since. Over the years Jason has gotten to know this lady well. He has had the opportunity to take her for rides in his own Corvette and to attend car shows. Since Jason took the time to get to know her, she has promised him that if he agrees to restore it and not resell it, she will give the car to him one day!
This vehicle has been sitting for a long time and it shows, but who knows what is might be lurking under all that grim. This car is a really amazing discovery. We thank Jason for sharing his find and hope he keeps us updated on the status of his Corvette garage find.
