CUSTOM-BUILT CORVETTE & ELDORADO ‘EL VETTE’ DONATED – National Corvette Museum – Tara Jacobi for John Jacobi

While growing up I came to know there was nothing my dad could not fix.  At some point, I noticed my dad, John Jacobi (sometimes known as JJ) strived to do things differently than most.  For instance, he wouldn’t buy something if he knew he could make it.  Sometimes this was just plain embarrassing to me but as I got older I realized not everyone could engineer the things that he did.  He was an engineer by trade and grew up working in garages on cars.  Our family never took any of our cars to a shop as there was no need.  He would also improve upon something if he knew he could build it another way.  Nothing hits this point across like what he did with his most favorite type of car – the Corvette.
