The restoration of a 58 Corvette – Eckler’s Corvette (via Hemmings)

Posted by

This is a great story about a daughter and her stepfather’s dream car – a great Panama Yellow ’58 Corvette. It was purchased for $600 in 1966 by Tara Bush’s Stepfather, Ron. Ron used to race it on Dayton Beach. When he retired from racing it in 1972 he parked it on a trailer and planned to restore when he retired. In 2000 his health started to fail, so Tara took over the restoration. The lesson? Don’t wait until you retire to do something important!
