2003 50th Anniversary Corvette
The owner had just purchased this car and knew that it needed some attention. He was planning on taking the car to Corvette at Carlisle the following week and wanted to have the car cleaned up to take to the show and surprise his brothers with. The exterior of the car was in very poor condition due to the dealer or previous owner and needed quite a bit of attention.
