Private Consignment Chapel Hill, North Carolina

The Consignor was a car enthusiast who was fastidious and comprehensive when caring for his collection was concerned. His long time prize possession Corvette, was transformed into an award winning car at many regional shows. The time commitment required for the shows encouraged the couple to just enjoy the car, and it was made more road friendly with wisely chosen upgrades. The couple celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Corvette by participating in the 2003 Corvette 50th anniversary trip
from New Jersey to Bowling Green, Kentucky. The El Camino came along and became the next project to get the comprehensive treatment the Corvette received. As a couple they enjoyed these cars and invested time and money into their care. A two bay garage with an automotive lift was built on the property, and facilitated the cars today.
