Hello All,

My name is Ralph and I am the second owner of a 1960 Corvette, which I purchased in 1967 when I lived in California. I have done a lot of work on my Vette and have a lot of experience both mechanically and doing body work. I recently had to replace the left front quarter of my fender due to some jerk backing out of a driveway too fast and hitting my Vette. :mad I am close to getting ready to paint it and hope to have it on the road soon. Thanks for having me as a member of your group.

Welcome Ralph.

It isn't often that I run into somebody that has had their solid axle longer than I.

Thanks. It's funny, but a friend asked my late wife "why doesn't he sell the car, he only drives it on weekends when it's not raining?" My wife answered, "quiet, the car has seniority over me". Ha! Ha!

Some of you asked for some photos, so here are some of work in progress. first, let me explain. I lived on a corner and we were moving to out new house. The movers asked me to take the car out of the garage as they were afraid they would scratch it, so I parked car on the side street. A neighbor's guest backed out of the driveway in a hurry, and he hit the car. Here are the pictures after the fact here in FL.
