Kevin was on the program recently and shared with us how his career in Corvette restoration began. You can listen to that program HERE.
Because of the high quality of work that Kevin and his team of experts perform, Corvette Repair has had the opportunity and honor of restoring some of the most historic, one-of-a-kind Corvette show cars, customs, experimental cars, and racing cars.
The common denominator with all of these cars is that because many are non-production Corvettes or completely fabricated cars, each has a unique history that must first be clearly understood to make the restoration correct. Documentation is critical and oftentimes very difficult. Many of the cars Corvette Repair has restored are over 50 years old, were built by men who are no longer with us, and documentation was spotty.
Race cars are especially challenging because teams often did little documentation because they were too busy campaigning a race car and weren’t thinking about the “documentation details” of their cars for possible restoration work decades in the future. Kevin’s job regularly includes automotive forensics!
