In my sleepy little village of Bedford PA, there is an auto shop that only deals with vette restoration - it is amazing, they bring in virtual shells of vettes, and then they sell them, or return them to their original owners. Bedford PA is a economically depressed area, yet this guy is the richest guy in town, and evidently gets run-down vettes from all over the east coast and ohio valley.
I will try to see if they have a website for you...it might be a wonderful hobby as a start, and maybe a new business. It seems to be immune from the downturn that is affecting the rest of our community.
We are only up here on weekends and vacation - but I will try to find out more info for you.
love to all here
