The Pinstriper – Lyle Fisk

As a teenager in the 1950s, Edward Lyle Fisk peeked inside the rear door of a local sign-painting shop so often that the owner finally offered him a job. After learning how to mix colors and handle a brush, Lyle saw a magazine story about pinstriping, and he knew his destiny. Decades later, Lyle is a legend who is still in high demand. “I really like what I do,” he says, scoffing at retirement....

1964 Corvette Survivor Was Driven As It Should

There’s something about a C2 Corvette that demands admiration, even – and maybe especially – one with 53 years worth of living etched into it. This 1964 Corvette coupe up for sale on eBay won’t win any Top Flight awards anytime soon, with its splotchy, chipped, and scratched paint and its ragged seats and faded carpet inside. But this Corvette might just win a sentimental award just for surviving. You see, it had the...

Donny’s C2 is pretty unique given its silver on silver color combination as well...

1972 Corvette Coupe with 3,700 Original Miles Uncovered in Canada

As I continue to search for my next Corvette, I often wonder what it would be like to find a super low mile Corvette gem tucked away in a long forgotten garage or barn. David Hallman from Ottawa, Ontario recently got to fulfill my Corvette dream when he stumbled up on an Elkhart Green 1972 Corvette Coupe that had been sitting since 1973. Hallman repairs and sells old Corvettes. Several years ago he purchased...
