No this car was local to me. He saw the nitro coupe outside the shop one day as we were ready to fire it up. This old guy sees the car and pulls up the driveway. asking if he could watch as he was a big time drag fan back in the day. I didnt care and we went about starting it up. Go forward three years he continues to stop by if the shop door is open. He would only stay 5-10 minutes for updates on the race car. We develop a frienship during this time. Last fall he mentioned the vette. This spring he tell me about the vette again mentioning its a 57. last week he asked if i could get it running again. i did and took it for a drive. Theres more to the story i cant reveal at this time. Over time more details and a few big surprises will be shared here. This is only the beginning. He said the car could only go to someone that would appreciate it and had the ability to maintain it.
