This is a copy of the Delivery Paper which shows where the Vette was sold new, and it's options.

Big Dog Garage

This 1978 Corvette was bought new in New Jersey in May 1978.  Three months later, it was stolen.  In 1982 it was found in a warehouse in Dallas, Texas.  It was sold at a Police Auction and brought to Houston.  It's missing pieces were replaced with 1982 parts.  I bought it in June 1985.

I drove the Vette almost daily until I parked it in 1991 when our son was born.  The worst enemy to any car is not driving it.  In August 2002, it was time to restore the Corvette.  I decided to rebuild it the way I thought it should have been built in the first place - Big Block!

Once I finish the build, it will be a Big Block Street Bruiser. I am not going for a speed record or autocross record.  I am not even trying to get in a magazine or compete in car shows.  I just want to cruise and make lots of torque noise, and have fun while I am at it. When I drive past parked cars, I want their alarms going off from the open pipe Big Block sound!!
