Goodguys Fuel Curve Top 10 of 2020 – #6 Resurrected Treasure
Editor’s Note: No matter how you look at it, 2020 was a year that nobody expected, nor wished for. Event postponements, cancellations, social distancing, and more had old car enthusiasts out of sorts. Our scene revolves around gathering at events and showing off with others. We’re a community, even if don’t live near each other.
Thankfully, hot rodding is all about overcoming obstacles and making things better. Goodguys and Fuel Curve worked hard in 2020 to cover the altered landscape of the vintage car and truck scene, bringing you fresh and creative content every week – over 400 stories in total. We’re using the last few days of the year to revisit the Top 10 stories of the year. We hope you’ll enjoy this look back as we start to prepare for better times in 2021.
#6 – Resurrected Treasure: Jim and MaryAnn Stewart’s Ruby Red 1958 Corvette
A classic Corvette coated with Ruby Red paint and plenty of chrome work is an eye-catcher for all ages. That is exactly why Jim and MaryAnn Stewart’s 1958 Corvette was so steadily popular on Fuel Curve in 2020. Month after month this car feature continued to find readers, though it was originally published on January 15th, 2020.
This feature came with a bit of inspiration from car owner, Jim Stewart. He had a message for all of us who have a forlorn project sitting in the corner of our shop: “You just gotta do it.” There’s only one regret Jim has about the build, and that is not doing it sooner. “It’s too bad we didn’t do it 25-30 years ago,” he quipped. “It was easier to get in and out of back then!”
