So, did he rename it?
Neat-O-Mosquito! What a killer story!
Awesome! So stoked to see how this all came together.
WOW!!! What an outstanding chain of events! Glad Gene has his Corvette back in his possession but the curators that have had the chance to possess the cherished Corvette have carried the legacy of this particular car to an almost movie inspiring story! SWEET!
What a GREAT story, made my day.
Congrats to Gene for getting his old Vette back. So Cool..
Another great story with a great ending on the HAMB!
What goes around.....
Great story, Gene looks very happy.
Unreal. And to think none of this would have happened without the HAMB.
It is great to hear Gene get his car back. It is where it should be. There are a couple of mine I wish I had back. I hope Gene posts on here and hopefully does something with the current name; it deserves better. Cool survivor for sure. Much more interesting than most of the so called original survivors in my opinion.-Jim
Fantastic story! Nice to see Gene was still into the Vette, to want it back, and get it.
Congrats Gene, I very happy the Corvette found it's way home.
I found the Corvette on Sioux Falls Craigslist in a "Hog Shed" in Memmo SD then brought it home to Springfield ILLINOIS.
Took it to the Cavelcade of Customs in Cinncinatt OH "AS FOUND" Jan 2014
Delivered it to Solo Speed Shop Chadsworth CA to Bill Jan 2014
What is the odd's Gene got to buy his Corvette back after 40 yrs!!!!
Merry Christmas Gene
damn that cleaned up nicely! and a happy new owner to boot
Thanks for all the nice comments. Bob, thank you for getting the Vette to Bill @ Solo Speed Shop. And a special thanks to Bill for making yesterday one of the best days of my life. I will keep all posted as the Vet comes back to life. Merry Christmas.
Hey Guys! I'm back! Look at the Christmas Present I bought me yesterday! 760 miles round trip on a bad leg! This Vette is CQQL & fits right in at Solo Speed Shop Since Gene took one of the Solo Cars!
Will post a new post later! Tks to all responders On new title! GENE'S CORVETTE! Bill Fowler!
wow... i'm diggin that. plans?
Gonna get it off trailer & ck it out! Will stay like it is as far as Patina will post another thread soon! Tks Bill
That wouldn't have a BBC and remnants of root beer brown on the hood would it ?
Another score regardless. Nice.
This is so cool and the story has special meaning to me, as my great grandfather homesteaded near Springfield and I attended Southern State College in Springfield in the mid 60's and have even done business with Richie of Mr Golf Car, small world.
Another NICE find! So what? You have a fiberglass magnet in your pocket? I know one is lucky finding two is skill! Can't wait to see the plans.
Now that's the perfect ending to a great story!
Congrats to all concerned, and mega kudos to Bill!
Looking forward to updates from Gene.
Looks like someone will have a very Merry Christmas!
Gene & his beautiful bride Barb of 30-40 Yrs picked up their vette this last weekend
& it is now in Colorado! They built this car & dated in it! It doesn't get any better than that! Tks Gene & Barb & everyone that made this story possible! Bill @ Solo Speed Shop
You are a stand up man for doing this.
Great story! And an awesome new find to boot. You sir, are a lucky man!
I love stories like this. Very good to know or read about kind people. It seems there are some of the best here on the HAMB.
What a GREAT story...and a PERFECT ending!
If don't have to end ? I am ready for the sequel. Gene and Barb can keep us up to date
