Corvette Excitement at the Concours d’Elegance of America

It appeared that the 2013 Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s was going to be rained out on Sunday when Saturday’s storms prevented much of the event set up. Though rain was forecast, after only a brief shower the 374 exhibitors rushed to get their cars displayed on the beautiful but wet fairways of the golf course. Though the temperatures were unusually cool, the rain held off except for a short sprinkle around noon and the wet weather didn’t seem to dampen the spirits of the car owners or the 10,000 enthusiasts who braved the threatening skies and to view some of the finest cars in the country.

The Epic Journey of C.J. Titterington and His 1963 Corvette Z06

We all have heard numerous fascinating stories about the history, performance and build specifications of found then often restored Corvettes over the last several years.

“Barn find” cars of all types are always special and it seems that Terry Michaelis’ has had more than his share of interesting barn-find Corvettes, finding two 1963 Z06′s with race histories within the same year. After selling the first barn find, Michaelis began an impeccable restoration on his second race Z06 discovery, the car originally campaigned by Dick Lang in the early 60′s. This 1963 Corvette Z06 was found in a barn less than twenty miles from Dick Lang’s original Chevrolet dealership, and today, following Michaelis’ impeccable restoration, at a cost of over $200,000, it is now being shown and winning concours throughout the country.

But perhaps an equally, if not more interesting story is the story of C.J. Titterington’s 1963 Z06 race car which will be displayed along side of Terry Michaelis’ Z06 at the upcoming Concours d’Elegance of America in Michigan.
