My name is David Way. I’m a retired auto shop owner who is Corvette crazy! I've loved Corvettes since I was a young man and saw the movie Corvette Summer. If you’re familiar with that movie, Mark Hamill had a wildly customized Corvette, and it always brings back old Corvette memories for me. I've had so many Corvettes throughout my life that I’ve lost count. I loved them all and had a blast working on them and driving them!
I bought this ’57, 210 2-door sedan about 15 years ago for $500. Originally a 283 power pack 3-speed car, it had been converted into a race car. While loading the car on the trailer, I noticed it was equipped with a Dana 60 4.11 posi rear, sweetening the deal. I remember “Hot Rod Magazine” around 1974 built a similar ’57 210 2-door sedan drag car that used a Dana 60. I stored (more like buried) the car in my storage building, while I finished other ’57 projects, until about 2 years ago when I started the restomodification.
