WHEN asked to describe his beloved MK 1 Corvette, Tom from Englewood,
California proudly beamed: “It looks like a fighter jet. It’s a really eye-catching car. It just
knocks your socks off.” Initially the car was headed on a one way ticket to the scrap yard and
it took Tom two years to get his set of wheels into the super slick condition that it’s in now.
Tom pumped a load of cash into his mission, the car was stripped back to fibreglass and all
the original 1955 parts were sourced, he told Truly the level of dedication that it took to do it:
“A lot of blood, a lot of sweat, a lot of tears and a pretty good chunk of money.” Finally he
had the car spray painted in its original colour - Harvest Gold. To Tom the corvette is more
than just a car - it’s a piece of history, he explained: “It’s an honour to be able to help a piece
of history come back to life and it looks, now that we’ve worked on it, looks exactly like it did
when it was on the showroom floor.” Although the MK 1 is old, it still drives like a charm and
he gets a huge kick from driving the Corvette around his local town, saying: “It’s good old
American muscle. And man does it feel good.”
