Post I finally got my Corvette back!
Well after one hell of a wait, I finally have my Corvette back. It looks pretty good, but I am pretty sure I will be selling it soon. After all I have been through, and not having it for so long, I am not that interested in keeping it. I have a couple ideas of what I will replace it with, but want to sit in them all before deciding. Who knows, maybe after driving it for awhile I'll fall in love with it again. Here are some shots of the Corvette.

Pete don't do it!! My advice would be to drive the hell out of it for the rest of the year, then decide if you still want to get rid of it come spring.

Thanks for the compliments guys. I don't know. I might keep, I might not. Either way I have to do a little work to it, and get the tune cleaned up. Once that is done, I have to take it down the track once on the bottle.

Holy crap!!!! That was atleast two years ago and the car sat there for prob close to 6 months before that, I remember asking stump About that car and why he took on body work. I glad to see its all done but I think if I was you there would have been some blood in the water. Just sayin

Stump's had that car all screwed up. It wound going to Hatter Auto body to be fixed, who did an ok job. Either way it came out better than if it got finished at Stump's. This entire thing was about as screwed up as it gets. I was really caught between a rock and a hard place. Luckily, I got other people to foot most of the bill.

Thats a shame. I thought what he had going for him would have been something good. What is the back story to why him and his dad split? Ive tried calling him a couple times with no answer or call back....heck maybe i dont even have the right cell number anymore.

The long story short is Ryan is on drugs. There's no easy way to say it other than to say it. Back when I was trying to get my car tuned two years ago Ryan disappeared for 2 months what happened was he committed himself to rehab, because his wife said it was either that or a divorce. Well two years later he destroyed his life, he HAD a great business and great wife and kid and a exceptional family, and now it is all gone for drugs!! From what I hear there is a huge falling out between him and his dad. Now that was a few weeks ago and they might have patched things up idk. But that is what is going on.

I know Ryan was in a motorcycle accident a few months ago, and I couldn't reach him on his cell phone. If everything said here is true, I hope he gets the help he needs. Let's not forget how much business we sent there, he's a great mechanic and an excellent tuner and he always helped me out. They had a super business there.

I really hope Ryan gets the help he needs. He is a talented guy and I hate to see him in this condition.
