In 1995, one of our regular customers came into our Flag Shop and told me he wanted to paint his Corvette like an American flag. I looked at him with some skepticism and then looked at the faded red Corvette parked out front. It was obvious that he was sincere in his quest and eager to pursue such a project.

We discussed some possible layout schemes and other vehicles that we had seen in the past with the same theme. We both agreed that it had to be an exact reproduction and not just decorated like an American flag. He left equipped with a new American flag, color numbers and a copy from Federal Specifications DDD-F-416D furnished to manufactures of flags for the U.S.Government.

A year later he returned with the most beautiful Corvette that I had ever seen. Maybe it was just me, but he had accomplished what we could barely visualize a year earlier- The Great American Sports Car, wrapped in true colors, 50 stars and 13 stripes, all to scale! I knew at that moment that I needed to own this car, but it was not to be... yet. This was his pride and joy, a year’s labor of love and it was NOT FOR SALE!

He and I kept in touch over the years and I would make him an offer to buy the Corvette each time, but to no avail. In the winter of 2003 we talked and I learned that the Corvette had been parked and covered for the past five years and driven very little. And it WAS FOR SALE! Finally the Corvette would be ours, cobwebs and all. After delivering the Corvette and finishing up paper work, I asked him if he was sure this is what he wanted to do, there was a kind of sad look on his face but then he smiled and said, “ It’s home now.”

We have decided that it is time for the Corvette,Company Car,to go to a good home and it is now FOR SALE. It has been parked in the garage for the last three years and needs to be driven more often. Over the last ten years we have had all the mechanics updated and upgraded. this is a very fast car, Hypertech Chip, and handles beautifully. The Custom Aircraft Enamel Paint looks new and is very low maintenance. The Interior is original and in good condition with a new JVC CD/Stereo with the factory BOSE speakers.
