Make and model: 1959 Chevrolet Corvette

Owner(s): Brad and Vickie Kasten

Owner's hometown: Jackson

Triple Crown winner. NCRS Top Flight, Bloomington Gold and Gold Spinner awards. Displayed at Corvettes at Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Original color combination; Frost Blue with Red Vinyl interior. 270 horsepower, two 4 barrel carburetors, Duntov cam.

How I fell in love with my ride:

Bought the car in 1969 from a fraternity brother for $900. Driven as our only car for 250M miles through the years. In 1985 the car was torn down and it took 20 years to find 98% original parts. The car was totally restored with body off in 2005.
