'73 Corvette Tom Coats Boiling Springs, SC
It's surprising how reasonably priced decent C3 Vettes can be found for if you're willing to look hard enough. Tom Coats was originally thinking a GTO was the platform he was after, until he saw how much the aftermarket had caught up with '68-72 Corvettes. The possibilities changed his mind and he took the plunge. The '73 was going to stay mostly stock, until a puddle appeared on the driver's floorboard. Tom started poking around and noticing all kinds of quirks he wanted to address. One thing led to another and before he knew it the Vette was fully stripped for a complete resto and Tom had a long list of goodies on the way.
