    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!
     
  6. What a GREAT story, made my day.

    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

    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.

    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.
