Take a peek into the preparations for paint on this first generation C1 1962 Corvette. This was the last year for the solid-rear-axle suspension that was used from the beginning on the Chevy sportscar. You can see in it all it’s glory at the Detroit Autorama at Cobo Center this weekend March 2-4th.
As a proud donating supporter we encourage you to stop by The D Lot at Detroit Autorama and purchase some raffles tickets to help Forgotten Harvest curb hunger and food waste. In its fifth year, hot rod designer Murray Pfaff and The D Lot (as in Detroit) presented by AMSOIL, will transform 6,000 square feet of the show into a display of vehicles designed by Pfaff. Six Chevrolets and a Ford will be brought in from as far as Pennsylvania, Utah, Missouri, Alabama, and Oregon.
These cars include:
- Keith Echols’ powerful and stylish Chevrolet Caprice called Acacia
- Jeff Mochilov’s super-sexy custom1972 Corvette roadster Speedvette
- Byron Burnam’s incredible hand-formed wide-body race inspired 1976 Chevrolet Vega
- H&H Performance’s handsome and capable1975 Ford Bronco
- Tredwear’s track capable late-model Silverado widebody pickup the Scottsdale SS
- Tredwear’s 1939 Chevy Coupe dirt track racer turned street terror Tarantula
- Terry Cook’s intense 1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air custom street machine Kryptonite
The D Lot’s raffled prizes benefit Forgotten Harvest, a food rescue that was formed in 1990 to fight two problems: hunger and waste. Last year alone they rescued over 42 million pounds of food by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from 800 sources, including grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets, restaurants, caterers, dairies, farmers, wholesale food distributors and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food, which would otherwise go to waste, is delivered free-of-charge to over 250 emergency food providers in the Metro Detroit area. It also works with other food rescues in a network across the mid-west and beyond.
