My future son-in-law Steve bought a ‘68 Corvette convertible (aqua blue/black with ugly aftermarket rims). He brought it over to show me and let me drive it – fun to drive, but no real interest on my part at that point. Steve later parked “Suzie” near a boat ramp and a boat trailer ripped off the left rear of the car. He had it repaired and painted red and replaced the ugly rims with correct rally wheels, and replaced the worn interior parts and poof! A great looking, matching numbers red ‘68 convertible ‘Vette, 4-speed is born.
