Default Lets see how good you guys are

OK made a decision this week. I have decided to sell it all, the complete collection and just focus on one project. That will give me more time with the family and actually allow me to get something done. Also my off and on health nonsense doesnt lend itself to lotsa garage time. One project is doable.

So my eagle eyed colleagues, can you help me find a 1958-1962 Corvette on the east coast. I will take an average driver or a buildable roller. Needs to be a quad headlight car though. I have scanned Ebay and have checked out the big corvette dealers, and would prefer to deal with a private owner. There is too much of a purchase premium in those cars.

I posted a wanted on the RJ classifieds but I know you guys know where the car I want is. My guess is Chris has one in the shed

So help me find one so I can make a nice donation to RJ.

Default vette

The folks I run with do not do many older vettes, but they are pretty resourcefull,
I will keep an eye out for one. Hope it all pans out out.

Hey Scorp-

I will keep my eyes open for ya... but I see many 60-62's for some reason. Very rare to see the older ones you want. What are those 56-59?? Anyways, like your thinking on "one prodject"... plus your efforts will be rewarded well on an old vette like you want. Glad to see you around. Scooter

A buddy of mine in Salem, OH is a big vette guy. Does a lot of restore projects out of his shop and loves the old stuff. I will see if he has any ideas where to look.

I knew you guys knew where everything was hiding- I am really looking forward to buying something nice.

Love my Novas but love those C1 quad lite vettes just a bit more.

Its too bad that I think they want to much for this one. Also I think it is too bad that it is a 1965 which makes it newer than what you want. But here is the link anyways.
