    1953 Corvette at Autogeek's 9th Annual Detail Fest

    1953 Corvette at Autogeek's 9th Annual Detail Fest


    There were a lot of amazing cars at Detail Fest this year on both Saturday and Sunday. One car in particular was a very rare 1953 Chevrolet Corvette. Chevrolet only built 300 Corvettes and David and Maryanne own #239 of the 300 built.

    The car is now 61 years old and we think having an original, mint condition 1953 Corvette at the 9th Annual Detail Fest our show is pretty special.

    I spent some time speaking with the owner, David about having him and his Corvette back to Autogeek's Show Car Garage for a future project David agreed. So stay tuned as you're going to see this beautiful Corvette grace Autogeek's Show Car Garage with a special appearance!

    Here's his beautiful 1953 Corvette...


    David has a custom car hauler to safely transport their rolling piece of history to local car shows.






    Here she is on display on the lawn in front of Autogeek....






    This car received a LOT of attention!




    The Blue Flame
    Here's the Blue Flame engine looking as clean and beautiful as the day she rolled off the assembly line...




    Here's David an me at the end of the show on Sunday...





    Thank so much David for sharing your classy 1953 Corvette at the 9th Annual Detail Fest!

    Makes me think of that scene in Wayne's World when they keep bowing down saying "we're not worthy!"
