Back in 2012, a video from Hemmings TV introduced us to Tony Meehan and his souped-up 1958 Corvette that was originally owned by his late father. It was a nice story about being able to restore and then drive a car that his father used to own.

Imagine you’re a Corvette enthusiast who has stumbled upon a barn-find 1957 Corvette. The car is stashed in a Milwaukee garage with about eight feet of junk piled on top. You say to owner, “Hey that’s a ’57 Vette!” and his reply is “Yeah, there’s two more.”
