Christmas and Corvettes:

If there is a “one size fits all” gift we can recommend for your favorite Corvette enthusiast, it’s the DVD documentary called “The Quest”. Based on the story of Corvette’s first win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, “The Quest” tells the story of how one man’s dream to find and restore the winning Le Mans race car was cut short and how his son set out to fulfill his dad’s dream of returning the Corvette to Le Mans with its original driver to mark the 50th anniversary of its historic win.
